Increasing Your Home’s Value

Whether you just moved in, or you’re ready to move out, it’s always a good time to consider replacing your old or damaged windows and doors. Smart home improvements, like increasing energy efficiency, can pay off in a big way when it’s time to sell your home. 

Window and door replacement adds to your home’s value typically in three ways: 1. Aesthetically, 2. Energy savings, 3. Reduced maintenance and repair costs — including window washing.


Upgrading or Replacing Doors

Upgrading your door with updated hinges, locks, and features (including pet doors and mailbox slots) increases your home’s aesthetic appeal and functionality, which always adds to resale value. Replacing your door completely, with a newer, energy efficient model, can also add to your home’s value. 

Upgrades to Windows

Upgrades such as triple-paned glass and insulated windows (which can cost approx. 10% more than the cheapest options)  will increase a home’s resale value by approximately 15% and typically pay for themselves in energy savings in approximately 7-9 years.
