Replacement Windows Boost Home Value

Window replacement isn’t cheap, but it’s a widely known fact that it increases home resale value. In fact, your old windows may be cheating you out thousands of dollars in a potential resale price. Along with bathroom, kitchen, and basement remodels, installing replacement windows is an effective way to raise home value; it can yield returns of as much as 85% on your investment (in the case of insulated vinyl windows, over 92% in the Pacific region).

Vinyl replacement windows have the most ROI. Their insulating properties help boost home value because your home can be more comfortable any time of the year. That means it will be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, with lower costs due to reduced electricity usage. A potential buyer may, therefore, consider your home at a higher price.

There’s been lots of talk about the connection between modern windows and energy efficiency. Well-sealed glass panes and high-quality materials do prevent air leakage. However, the increase in home value isn’t only due to efficiency improvements. Other reasons new windows can boost your home value include:

A More Appealing Exterior

The exterior of your home is the first thing a potential buyer sees. You may prefer your older wooden windows for their classic look. But modern vinyl glass windows increase curb appeal and are more durable while requiring little maintenance.

A Brighter Home

High-quality glass windows make the inside brighter while blocking UV rays that can harm your health and fade carpets and furniture. In the process, you use less lighting or electricity. The reduced need for artificial lighting further reduces energy bills.

A Multitude of Choices

When it comes to replacement windows, there are many choices to make. You can select options most suited for the design and function of your home, or to enhance the look of your house. For example, large picture windows with a single pane of glass provide uninterrupted views and contribute to the appeal of modern architecture.

If efficiency is more of a priority, double- or single-hung windows can keep the cold air out in a colder climate. But if you live in a warmer region, low-emissivity coatings essentially reflect air conditioning back inside, while reducing overall solar heat gain. For the most energy efficiency, choose ENERGY-STAR Certified windows; in some cases, they can save you hundreds of dollars a year in energy costs.

Are Replacement Windows Sure to Raise My Home’s Resale Price?

The value of your home is influenced by many factors. Some have to do with the neighborhood, location, and proximity to amenities such as transportation and shopping. Others have to do with the market and supply and demand. But there are a few you have control over. The appeal and condition of your home are under your control; even if you own an older home, you can make improvements that boost its value.

New windows aren’t the only improvements that will accomplish this. However, they contribute a great deal to the curb appeal, comfort, and efficiency of your home.
