When it comes to home renovation, not all projects are created equal.
The financially-smart homeowner, when considering remodels or renovations, is perhaps asking a few pointed questions:
- Are replacement windows a renovation that will increase my home’s resale value?
- Does replacing windows save me money in the short term?
- Will this renovation improve my quality of life?
So how does home window replacement measure up? With more than a dozen things you could invest in around the house, is it a good financial move to replace your home windows?
Replacement windows can reap a return on investment.
The leading trade publication Remodeling Magazine agrees that home window replacement is one of the top return-on-investment projects in its 2021 trend report.
Window replacement follows the multi-year trend of exterior improvement projects. These curb appeal updates make the whole block look better and raise the value of your home for potential buyers.
Replacing your windows gives your home a makeover that the whole neighborhood will notice. You’ll get a higher selling price if you decide to put your home on the real estate market. New windows announce to the world that your home is well-maintained.
New windows will save you money every month.
Are you planning to stay in your home for a while? When you invest in home window replacement, there are short- and long-term benefits.
Installing new windows can give you a price break on heating and cooling costs. Old windows are often drafty or leaky, meaning your heating efforts in the winter and cooling measures in the summer are less effective. New windows come with tight seals, and you can even invest further by upgrading to double or triple-paned glass. Today, there are several energy-efficient window and door options.
By making your home more energy-efficient, you’ll save money on utility bills every month and make your home more comfortable throughout the seasons. Home window replacement can help with the family budget and is good for the environment.
Transform your home with replacement windows.
If you’re stuck with leaky, unappealing single-pane windows from decades ago, window replacement will not only save you money — it can transform your living space.
Low morning light in your kitchen or a view from your living room? Consider switching from double-hung windows to a casement window for uninterrupted landscapes. A dark room? Installing a new specialty window can transform a room.
And, window replacement lets you bring your style and personality to your space. Whether vast, open-concept picture-frame windows, or cute farmhouse-style crisscrossing white frames, replacing your windows makes your home yours.
Increase joy and save money.
We know there are always plenty of home renovation projects you could take on. But home window replacement checks all the boxes — it’s a great way to increase your home’s future selling price, it will lower your monthly home energy bills, and it can add life and finesse to your day-to-day enjoyment of your home.
