If your windows were originally installed when the house was built, or it has been so long since you replaced them that you can’t even recall the year, now is the right time to consider a window replacement project. New windows are key to improving your home’s value. Even if you are not looking to sell anytime soon, it is still a wise idea to add value to your home.
New windows are not necessarily exciting, but they definitely enhance your overall value and ROI. This Old House points out that exterior improvements such as siding and replacement windows will pay you back more than 75 percent of their cost upon resale. Drafty single-pane windows will detract from the value and energy efficiency of your home more than anything else. Money Crashers adds that new energy-efficient windows can save you up to $500 per year in heating and cooling costs.
If that’s not value, we don’t know what is! Here are some more ways you can add to the value of your home.
New windows just look good. Period. Old wooden frames that are splintering and rotting don’t contribute to the overall curb appeal of your house. Not to mention, you have to paint those frames every few years to keep them looking decent. Why hassle with all that? Replacement windows are easy to maintain and clean, plus you can choose any color you’d like to complement your home. You won’t believe what new windows can do for the appearance of your property. Go ahead and try it. We guarantee you’ll be impressed with the results.
This is a big area of value for you as a homeowner. You are likely shelling out a lot of good money for heating and cooling your home. But imagine if you could pay less and still enjoy the same, or better, comfort level all year round? You can with new windows. It’s a fact that drafty windows can raise your energy bills by 10 to 25 percent, according to Forbes. It’s time to reclaim your hard-earned money and put it toward better use.
Did you know you could experience up to a 72% return on investment (ROI) with a home improvement like new windows? While any home remodeling projects do not always recoup their total investment, new windows are right up there with kitchen remodels in terms of ROI. That’s much more than a sun room, at 52%, for example.
We all want life to be a little bit easier. New windows can lessen the prospect of that most dreaded household chore: window cleaning. Today’s models allow for easy cleaning inside and out so you don’t have to risk life and limb trying to get a clean window. Plus, they operate smoothly with seamless opening and closing so you don’t have to fight to operate them.
