The results of the annual “Cost vs. Value” home improvement study conducted by Remodeling magazine have been released for 2017. Once again, window replacement has been proven to be among the top choices for “return on investment” for a homeowner’s home renovation dollars.
The magazine, which is one of the most respected publications in the home remodeling and renovation industry, conducts the survey across the country. Their measurement is based on the anticipated percentage of a project’s cost that would be recouped if the home were to be sold.
Window replacement with vinyl windows results in an average return of 73.9%, ahead of such projects as bathroom remodeling (59.1%), backyard patio (54.9%), kitchen remodel (61.9%), deck addition (56.4%), or roof replacement (68.8%). Another popular renovation project that rates high in value is a new entry door, with an expected return of 77.8% for a fiberglass door, and 90.7% for a steel door.
What makes replacing your window such a good investment? The combination of aesthetics and function. New vinyl replacement windows can truly transform the look of your home, giving it an updated and elegant feel that can be seen both inside and out. And, because vinyl windows with the right glass package can be highly energy efficient, the home becomes more comfortable while requiring less money for heating and cooling costs.
So if making a smart investment in your home a priority, window replacement fits the bill, both for now and in the long term.
