AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Home remodeling projects in Texas major cities grew increasingly profitable and popular in 2013, according to the 2014 Texas Remodel Valuation Report released today by the Texas Association of Realtors.
Dan Hatfield, chairman of the Texas Association of Realtors, commented, All aspects of Texas real estate are strong, including the home remodeling market. As demand for Texas homes continues to rise, homeowners and sellers can significantly contribute to their homes resale value through small projects and smart additions.
The report analyzed the project recoup costs and recoup cost growth in 2013 for over 20 different remodeling projects nationwide, in the South Central U.S., and in Austin, Dallas, El Paso, Houston and San Antonio.
Four of the five Texas markets in the report showed significant gains in project recoup costs in 2013, excluding San Antonio, which showed small declines in recoup cost growth. In addition, remodeling trends were consistent across the state with all five Texas markets demonstrating that smaller, functional remodeling projects showed greater increases in recoup costs than upscale, luxury projects.
Smaller projects that boost a homes curb appeal continued to be popular in most markets. Steel entry door replacements, for example, ranked No. 1 for total recoup cost nationwide, in the west south central U.S., and in Houston, recouping up to 105.5 percent of the total project cost.
In addition, projects that increased a homes livable square footage using existing spaces showed significantly higher recoup cost values and growth in 2013. Basement remodels ranked in the top five for recoup cost in four of the five major cities in Texas, recouping up to 99.6 percent of the total project cost.
Conversely, costly room additions and upscale remodeling projects were among the least profitable projects. Sunroom additions, for example, ranked in the bottom five for recoup cost in five Texas metro areas, recouping a maximum of 61.3 percent and as little as 38 percent of the total project cost.
Texas homebuyers want a home that not only meets their familys needs but maximizes existing square footage and functionality, adds Hatfield. But with a competitive housing market in many of Texas metro areas, more homebuyers are willing to do remodeling projects once they purchase a home instead of waiting for that perfect home to come along.
Major renovations were popular in more functional rooms such as kitchens and bathrooms. Kitchen remodeling projects ranked in the top five for recoup cost growth in all five Texas metro areas, recouping up to 143.9 percent of the total project cost.
Finally, projects that increased a homes sustainability showed significantly higher recoup cost values and growth in 2013. Backup power generators ranked No. 1 for recoup cost growth in Austin, El Paso and Houston including a 105.1 percent gain in recoup cost in El Paso in 2013. In addition, natural materials, such as wood, cement and steel, led to a. significantly higher recoup cost than synthetic, plastics-based materials, such as composites and vinyl.

Small Kitchen Renovation Ideas and Tips
The word renovation can be interpreted in numerous ways. It could mean a bit of sprucing up or it could also mean an absolute kitchen makeover, complete with knocking down a couple of walls and major structural changes. No matter what way you choose for renovating your kitchen, the following small kitchen remodeling ideas on a budget will definitely help you out.
The Classic Triangle
Refrigerator, kitchen sink, and stove form the three points of a classic triangle in any kitchen. Since, these three places are the most frequently used utilities in the kitchen, it is better if they are positioned at three points of a triangle. The arrangement of these utilities in this peculiar fashion gives you a lot of room to move around. Other utilities and appliances can be positioned around these three main points. In any kitchen, it is recommended to have three distinct functional areas for food preparation, food storage, and clean up. If you have this clear distinction while kitchen remodeling, you can easily make space for everything in your kitchen.
Flooring and Painting
Kitchen flooring and walls occupy a major portion in any kitchen. Due to their size, they greatly influence the appearance of any kitchen. Hence, you have to give special attention to your flooring and walls. Replacing worn out flooring, although the best option, is a very costly affair. Instead, you can install cheaper kitchen flooring options such as vinyl flooring or laminate flooring. They are available in myriad designs, patterns, and colors. Some of the designs are a great imitation of natural stone and wood. Kitchen walls of a tiny kitchen should be preferably painted in light colors to create an illusion of space. Pastel shades such as butterscotch yellow, salmon pink, baby pink, baby blue, etc., are appropriate for kitchens.
Additional Utilities and Functionality
If you have a space for storing everything in your kitchen, you will be rarely short of space. You can install additional utilities in your kitchen, such as a built-in microwave or a garbage disposer underneath the sink, so that you do not waste any additional floor space for these utilities. Similarly, kitchen cabinets and cupboards which extend towards the ceiling also save. a lot of space. Smart use of vertical space can provide you with more functional area. Use the top shelves for storing least used items. Pull out tabletops, roll out chopping boards, etc., are some great ideas that can be implemented while remodeling a small kitchen.
If you are a small family of only 2 or 3 people, then there is no need to invest in large capacity kitchen appliances. Larger appliances eat too much of space in your kitchen. Hence, go for smaller, sleeker, and compact appliances for your kitchen. A small dishwasher, medium size refrigerator, and compact coffeemaker, can all save a considerable amount of space in your kitchen.
A little imagination and creativity can help you in effectively utilizing the available space. What more, you can implement your ideas at a fraction of the cost of an interior designer's fees.
One of the most common issues with heating and cooling equipment is poor air flow. This problem makes your heating and cooling equipment work like inefficient outdated models and this can waste a lot of your money. The two most common reasons for poor air flow: inadequate duct sizing and a dirty return air filter.
Inadequate Duct Sizing Inadequate duct sizing is usually the result of a poor installation by a contractor who might possibly not have the qualifications to perform proper sizing. This is a very common problem that a homeowner may battle for years to come and could cost thousands of dollars over the life of the equipment. It is extremely crucial that you get references before choosing a contractor.
A Dirty Return Air Filter A dirty return air filter is the easiest problem to fix. Simply change your return air conditioning filter more frequently or utilize a filter that does not restrict air flow. This simple change can lead to huge savings. How You Can Perform the Garbage Bag Air flow Test
Garbage. bag airflow test is one of the easiest and cheapest methods to determine the air flow of your furnace registers, bathroom exhaust fan or clothes dryer exhaust. It's a vital test to pinpoint the reason why your furnace isn't providing sufficient warm air in your room. This is also important in order to determine whether your newly purchased exhaust is working at its best. The same goes when you're having major renovations in your home that call for a change in your heating or cooling systems. It's the cheapest way to check your furnace register and exhaust fans performance as it only requires a garbage bag. This test isn't a precise measurement of the airflow but it is better than not conducting any test at all.
Here's how to do the garbage bag airflow test:
1. Secure the mouth of the garbage bag using a tape right into a bent coat hanger or to a cardboard in order to keep it open.
2. Be sure to deflate the bag by crushing it flat.
3. Position the open part of the bag (mouth) over the furnace register or exhaust hood.
4. Using a stopwatch or any gadget track the number of seconds it takes for the bag to fully inflate.
If you're using a small garbage bag that measures 66 x 91 cm, you should use the information below to determine the airflow:
Inflation time = Airflow
*2 seconds = 35L/s (75 cfm)
*4 seconds = 20 L/s (40 cfm)
*10 seconds = 10 L/s (20 cfm)
However, if you're using a bigger garbage bag that measures 79 x 119 cm, use this data:
Inflation time = Airlfow
*2 seconds = 100 L/s (210 cfm)
*4 seconds = 50 L/s (105 cfm)

Know what work you want done before you select an HVAC contractor. You might not be able to get a price quote unless you let the contractor see your current system first. If you can't explain anything to them, this will be even more difficult. Know the right information ahead of time.
If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. These ports have a metal covering. Sometimes it is rubber. Use a lightweight, detergent-free SAE 20 oil, putting 10 drops in each port.
When selecting the spot to put the outdoor compressor for your unit, choose somewhere that gets plenty of shade. The cooler the air which goes in, the less work the unit will have to do.
Turn off outdoor condenser units when weather turns cold. The unit will become damaged if you do not take care of it. This will maximize the life of your unit.

Service your HVAC unit at least one time a year. The service will include motor inspection, oiling of moving parts, and a freon level check. These easy to do things are going to allow your system to run its best.
Don't let your home get way too hot to where it's dangerous. Air conditioners cannot sufficiently cool down unreasonably high temps. If your home gets above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, you'll only cool down to still above 80. Depending on what the humidity is, this may not be cool enough to be a safe temperature to sleep at when recovering from the harsh summer heat.
Always take the time to check out the reputation of any HVAC contractor before you consider hiring them. It is a good idea to check with the BBB and look for reviews from prior clients. In this way, you can be more sure of getting a good HVAC company.
Occasionally, ice will form on your AC. You may even mistake the frozen drains as an issue for a plumber. Turn your unit to the fan setting to turn off the compressor. If the problem persists be sure to call in a professional.
How long has the contractor been in business? It is more likely that a contractor who has been in business for a longer time will give you better value for your money. Hiring an inexperienced contractor can be risky.
Ask your friends and relations for their HVAC contractor recommendations. When someone hires a quality professional, they are usually happy to share their info. This can also be used to see who you should avoid.
Having a radiant barrier installed in your attic is an excellent way to make sure that your HVAC runs better. It ensures that your unit stays hot or cold as it should be. This can also help you make the attic useful again.
Do you need a new HVAC system? There are some things to consider. Each system has a rating and that rating tells the area that can be effectively temperature controlled. It is probably wiser to purchase a system that is slightly larger than what you think you need rather than one that is smaller.
If you current HVAC doesn't work that well, try testing ducts for leaks. The local utility may be able to test for you, and their services are frequently free or low cost. The testing will pay for itself once you find and repair the leaks.
If you hear clicking inside your HVAC unit, look for an obstruction. Frequently the cause is some kind of debris that is making contact with the cooling system of the fan. Cleaning the debris will likely stop the noise. See if you can do it yourself before getting a professional.
It is important to pick out the right HVAC company for your needs as you will need professional assistance. The best HVAC companies do their best to maintain their appointments and get to their customers quickly. Contractors ought to be able to find the problem quickly. Once the problem is identified, they will also be able to quickly and efficiently resolve it.

These simple tips that you have read above can save loads of money on expensive repairs. But it is up to you to follow them, so you don't find yourself in the position to shell out thousands of dollars fixing something that could have been prevented.
