We’ve all heard the various opinions of real estate agents who encourage sellers to make home and business improvements, but is there really one improvement that can make or break a sale? Some say it’s the kitchen when it comes to homes, and business focus on landscaping, while others aim for a neutral color palette on the inside of the property. While there’s no doubt that these improvements make a difference, there is only one major facelift that is proven to increase resale value, and that’s fiber cement siding.
Fiber cement siding might not yet be a “household” name, but you may have heard about James Hardie HardieBoard siding. This product has become increasingly popular throughout our area, primarily because of the extreme temperature changes that occur here in Ohio, everyone knows we can see all four seasons in a week and sometime a day.
