One of the first things homebuyers look for in a home is crown molding. Many homes look unfinished when there is no crown molding…

“Crown molding makes it to the top of most remodeling lists because it adds charm and value to a home, not because people enjoy spending a Saturday try­ing to get the corners just right.

7 Hot Home Improvement Trends that Make Your Home Work for You – HouseLogic

 By: Lisa Kaplan Gordon

“Here’s a look at 7 hot home improvement trends that improve the way we live with our homes.

Trend #1: Maintenance-free siding

We continue to choose maintenance-free siding that lives as long as we do, but with a lot less upkeep. But more and more we’re opting for fiber-cement siding, one of the fastest-growing segments of the siding market. It’s a combination of cement, sand, and cellulosic fibers that looks like wood but won’t rot, combust, or succumb to termites and other wood-boring insects.”
