Does Replacing Windows Add Value to Your Home?
People often ask us here at American Made Windows, “Will replacing windows add value to my home?” The short answer is simply, Yes. How much, is the topic of today’s blog.
Let’s say you spend a total of $15,000 on a full set of replacement windows, with all the bells and whistles and features you want. How much of that expenditure will you recoup in added value to your home?
Current value return on new top-of-the-line American Made Windows is around 74%. That means that about $11,000 of your investment comes back to you in home value (sales price) so actually, your new windows only cost you the $4,000 difference!
If you’re thinking of selling your home any time in the next few years, replacing the windows now can help your home stand out in a crowded real estate market, and raise the value of your home before you list. Buyers love houses that are not only move-in ready, but updated with modern amenities like appliances and new windows. Those new windows can improve your home’s marketability and help you command a higher selling price.
Even if you are not planning to sell your home soon, replacement windows can still help save you money now. American Made replacement windows can cut your energy bills drastically by creating a tight seal, preventing cold air from entering your home. Air leaks are the major cause of wasted energy. When you block leaks by replacing old inefficient windows, you’ll spend less money heating or cooling your home – no more drafts and money saved!
You might be surprised to learn that home heating and cooling costs eat up over 40 percent of the yearly energy budget. While an expense at the outset, replacement windows slash this budget item, giving you more flexibility to purchase the things you really like.
