Getting the most out of your St. Augustine home with home improvement

When it comes to the value of you and your family’s biggest investment, your home, the best way to maintain and raise its value is to occasionally improve it. Doing home improvements that give the greatest amount of value, and yet still are relatively inexpensive are the most ideal, and often it is the exterior that we forget.

The Fidus Group has experts who can help assist you in making the right choice as to what project would be the most effective, and their staff of certified professionals can help work with you every step of the way. This will help you to know exactly what to expect. With the exterior being an area that is of particular importance, there are several things to consider, and before doing any remodeling project on your St. Augustine home, first remember the following.


  • To begin with, remember the curb appeal. We often don’t keep in mind that you need to do everything with selling in mind, particularly when you want to eventually get the best price out of the property you can.
  • When someone first looks at your home, whether it is examining it from the perspective of a potential buyer, or simply as a friend, we forget that the outside of your home is often the first thing that people will notice and judge you by.
  • It unfortunately does not matter how wonderful, inviting, or comfortable the inside of your home is, if the outside does not appeal to them then they may get an undesirable impression.

When considering this, remember it does not always take large expensive projects to make a difference; sometimes a replacement door or window is all you need. When including items that require heavy upkeep or maintenance, remember that they will only add to your overall cost and be less appealing to potential buyers in the long term.

Another important point to consider is that when you are improving the outside portion of your home you will want to get the most out of your homes utility. This means that you may want to consider adding a patio that can allow you to enjoy a larger section of weather.


On a much larger scale, one of the biggest and proven measures that you can take to not only protect you and your family, but to also add to your overall investment, is to repair or replace your St. Augustine roof. The Fidus Group can help you through the sometimes confusing process of roofing improvement.


One thing that can never be quite stressed enough is that many people feel they can’t afford to do new repairs, let alone a complete replacement. The truth is, you can’t afford not to. Even the smallest damage to a roof can spiral out of control and create tens of thousands of dollars worth of much more serious problems down the road. Not only could that damage ruin the exterior of your home, but also the interior, and it can also wreak havoc on you and your family’s health.
