Homeowners looking to get the biggest return on their investment for remodeling projects should start by looking up. 

That’s because adding fiberglass insulation to an attic was the most profitable remodeling project in our region of the country last year, recouping 122.6% of the total project cost. 

But homeowners who concentrated on exterior improvements made out pretty well, too, with curb-appeal projects rounding out the top five projects based on recouped cost:

  • Midrange garage door replacements recouped 100.7% of their cost, while upscale garage door replacements brought in 84.8% of costs;
  • Installing manufactured stone veneer recouped 99.6% of costs; and
  • Swapping out the front door for a steel door recouped 91.3% of costs. 

Check out the annual Texas Remodel Valuation Report, released today by the Texas Association of REALTORS®, to see which projects brought the greatest return on investment—and the least—nationwide and in Austin, Dallas, El Paso, Houston, McAllen, and San Antonio.
