Replacing the windows in your home has always been a great way to help protect its value and enhance its “curb appeal.” Now you can also have the confidence that window replacement in Massachusetts is also a smart financial move.
Remodeling magazine has published the results of their annual “Cost vs. Value” study that examines how much of the cost of a renovation can be “recovered” by the increased home value it provides.
For home remodeling in the New England states, installing high quality vinyl replacement windows creates an average return on investment (ROI) of 77.5%. This is some 5.2% higher than the national average for vinyl windows, demonstrating the value of energy efficient windows in a climate such as we have in our region. (Wood windows are not quite as good an investment, with an average recovery of 72.0% in New England.)
That added value comes on top of the monthly savings you’ll realize from reduced energy use. By creating a thermal barrier between your home and the outside, energy efficient windows like Rescom’s Bristol Windows help cut the amount of energy transfer, which means your home’s heating and air conditioning systems won’t have to work as hard. As a result, you’ll burn less oil or gas during the winter, and reduce the electrical load during hot weather.
Of course, there is also great value in the way new windows can transform the look of your home. We have a wide range of window styles that are available in an array of colors and finishes to create a beautiful new image that helps to refresh your home’s façade.
By the way, a new entry door is also a good investment. Remodeling’s study says entry door replacement will generate a return on investment from 80.7% for a fiberglass door, to 94.8% for a new steel door.
