Steel Entry Doors, Manufactured Stone Veneer, Vinyl Siding…WINNERS!

Each year we look forward to seeing REMODELING magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report because it gives us great insights about current trends in our industry. The report contains detailed data that compares the average cost for 36 popular remodeling projects with the value those projects retain at resale in 102 U.S. markets (Cost-Value). Very often the findings mirror trends that we observe with our own growing product mix here at ProVia.

This year’s Cost vs. Value Report provides a mixed bag of results, with some “winning” product categories, and others that have not fared as well. Interestingly, many of the categories where ProVia has product offerings are doing quite well.

These insights provide tips for homeowners who want to ensure that investments in their home translate into good resale value. For dealers, contractors and builders, you’ll find information that can be shared with customers so they can make the wisest home investment decisions. Following are some of our key takeaways from this year’s report.

As you can see in this video, the orphanage is a place of loving care and safety for the children. They receive calls almost daily asking them to take on more orphaned children, however today they’re at capacity, and it’s heartbreaking to turn down these requests.
