Springtime may bring increased home improvement efforts

Posted on Monday, April 8, 2013 at 12:16:45 PM

As the spring season approaches, many homeowners may be looking forward to the opportunity to spend some time outside and finally make necessary repairs to their properties.

While the severe meteorological occurrences seen last year may have damaged some houses, the winter weather did not allow for easy exterior work. However, now that warmer weather may be on the way, individuals nationwide may be thinking about what projects they can undertake to improve the quality - and resale value - of their homes.

"Exterior renovations are prevalent this spring in the wake of Superstorm Sandy and a powerful winter storm season," said Brian Harvey, home improvement lending representative at Home Loan Investment Bank. "Much of the country was affected by the weather and now that the snow has melted and the weather is breaking homeowners are able to accurately assess their needs."

In addition to the usual spring cleaning tasks homeowners tackle, many may be looking to amend exterior issues on their house which could potentially affect the interior if not addressed.

"Repairs and replacements to siding, roofs, gutters and down spouts are projects at the top of many lists," Harvey said

Those consumers looking to take advantage of home improvement financing opportunities may benefit from researching options offered by Home Loan Investment Bank, a trusted source of residential and automotive lending.
