One of the biggest renovation projects in which a homeowner can take on is having new windows installed. Despite it being one of the costlier home renovation projects, installing new windows in your home has one of the highest return on investment percentages of any other renovation project. Replacement vinyl windows are estimated to have an average return on investment of 73.4%, which is around 10% higher than the estimated return on a bathroom or kitchen remodel.
One of the ways windows can add value to your home is through modern energy-efficient innovations. The frame and glass portion of modern vinyl windows are more energy-efficient than they were even ten years ago. If your windows are decades old, made of wood, and contain a single pane of glass, then modern vinyl windows will drastically increase the efficiency of your home.
Traditional windows were made from a single pane of glass, which let in plenty of light, but single-pane windows aren’t the best insulators. Various improvements made to the glass used in window manufacturing have served to increase the overall efficiency of your home by a substantial amount.
The first improvement is made by using two or more panes of glass to build a single window. In addition, the glass itself may have a low emissivity coating on it to prevent UV and infrared rays from warming the interior of your home. Argon gas is used to fill the spaces between the panes to slow the transfer of heat into your home and prevent condensation build-up on the window.
These energy-efficient qualities serve to save you money in more ways than one. New windows offer value by decreasing your monthly electric costs.
Increase Overall Appearance
Replacement vinyl windows increase the value of your home by increasing the overall appearance. This is why many homeowners decide to replace their home’s windows when they plan on selling within the next couple of years. Windows can be one of the biggest influences on buyers when deciding to put your home on the market.
Vinyl frames come in just about any color you can think of, so no matter how expressive your home’s color scheme is, you can be sure that there is a window to match it. These windows look great, and their maintenance is almost nonexistent aside from a simple wipe down now and again. Vinyl frame windows don’t need to be replaced as often as wooden windows either, so you get more years out of them for less money.
