If you haven’t already gotten your tax refund check for the year, you should be getting it soon. But before you decide to spend it on a new motorcycle or a family vacation, think about another way you can use it: for your home.

You home is an investment. It’s a place where you and your family spend a lot of time, a place that keeps your safe, and a place that you can go to no matter what. Why not use your tax refund for a home improvement project that it needs?

Right now at P.J. Fitzpatrick, we have plenty of spring discounts and specials going on in addition to our monthly specials – just call us and ask about them! The springtime is the perfect time to put a little love back into your home and make an investment that’s sure to pay you back when the time comes.

Energy Efficiency

Make your home more energy efficient by installing some new Infinity by Marvin windows. Their Ultrex fiberglass is built to be stronger and longer lasting than many other window materials, and it’s made from a silica sand base, which makes it environmentally friendly. These windows can help you save money on your energy bills by creating a strong seal to keep your heat or air conditioning from leaking out. They also offer 30% more glass area, so you’ll have an even better view of your surrounding area.

Another way to make your home more energy efficient is with new doors. Like gaps in old windows, gaps in old doors can let your home’s heat or air conditioning out and let the cold or hot air from outside in. In addition, garage doors that are under-insulated can cause your home to be too hot or too cold.

Repairs and Prevention

If there’s a part of your home that needs repaired, but you’ve put it off because of financial reasons, now is your chance to make it right.

Roofing is one of the main issues we see at P.J. Fitzpatrick. If your roof is missing shingles, has flashing damage, is rotting, is leaking, or needs another repair, putting it off will only make it worse. Let our experts perform an assessment and see what needs to be done in order to make your roof a sturdy, reliable form of protection now and for the future.

Just like roofing, other areas of your home that need repaired will only get worse as time goes on. Don’t wait – act now and prevent a bigger problem in the future.


If you’re thinking about selling your home, there are several ways to invest our tax refund and increase your home’s value. For one, a brand new bathroom can be a great selling point. Whether you want to replace your bath tub, convert your tub to a shower, or replace your vanity and toilet, our experts can complete many bath projects in just one day.

Siding replacement is also a great way to give your home a fresh look and increase its curb appeal. We offer the best siding materials in the industry in various styles and colors, so we can make your home look as good as new.

Don’t spend another tax refund check on something spontaneous. Instead, make a smart investment in your home. Give us a call today to get started.
