When you plan a remodeling project for your home it is always helpful if the project will retain its value when you sell the home.  If you spend thousands of dollars you want to think that there is some return on your investment.  Obviously some jobs provide a higher return than others.  Here is a list of the top five as reported by Remodeling Magazine.

  • Steel entry door replacement.
  • Garage door replacement.
  • Wood deck addition.
  • Fiber cement siding replacement.
  • Minor kitchen remodel.

I am reporting on the values as described for the Pacific Region which includes Calif., Oregon, Washington, Alaska and Hawaii.  The percentage recouped is as follows:

  • Entry door (steel) 112%
  • Garage door 96.4%
  • Wood deck addition 86.5%
  • Siding replacement 85.6%
  • Minor kitchen remodel  84.1%.

These projects were in the cost range of $5,000 to $25,000.
