Regional Value Differences in Home Remodeling and Additions

In New England, unlike most other regions, window replacements are worth more than kitchen and bathroom remodels. On the Pacific coast, siding replacement slides way down the cost-value scale, and kitchen remodels top the list. Within regions and even within cities, however, there are further variations. Consult local real estate agents and experienced remodelers about the most popular and valuable projects in your area. Their estimates and experiences may differ from the Cost vs. Value report.

The Cost vs. Value report provides valuable estimates for the return on investment of a variety of home improvement projects, but adjust the numbers based on local expertise.
