How new windows and doors improve home value


As a prospective home buyer, the front of the house will always be the first to capture your attention. It is up to the seller to ensure that this impression is a positive one. Apart from a fresh coat of paint and a well-tended front yard, there are other important aspects that will steal the show. The windows and doors of your home will always prove significant features and ones worth investing in.

 

An old entry door is not only an eyesore but also of concern in terms of security and energy efficiency. If the old door looks worn, makes a dreadful noise, or does not open and close properly, the potential buyers will begin their tour of your home from a negative standpoint. This can affect their willingness to buy your home as well as the price they are prepared to pay.

 

Windows are just as important as your front door. If you have a beautiful new door and old windows, it will make the worn out aspects of your home stand out even more. Like your front door, new windows offer improved aesthetic appeal, security, and energy efficiency. With double or triple pane windows, your home can offer potential buyers the added incentive of greater energy savings. Properly insulated windows will keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Buyers will be more than willing to pay more for a home that will prove efficient on a monthly basis for many years to come.

 

It’s important to consider the benefits of a bow or bay window and the way they can transform any room in your home. With just one of these windows, you can give your living room, dining room, or even bedrooms something extra to show off.

 

When replacing the windows of your home for the purpose of increasing your asking price, it’s wise to replace as many windows as necessary. For example, you should replace all of the front facing windows so that they present a uniform appearance. Similarly, don’t forget about creating a uniform design from within. So, even if some of your windows face other directions, they should be similar to the rest of the windows in that room in order to achieve consistency. It’s not just about the color of the frames but also the size, style, and grilles that need to be considered. If you are replacing your front door and windows, make sure that you choose them together and don’t forget about a suitable patio door too!

 

Always remember, when selling your home, the potential buyers will look for fault. They will tally up the cost of each repair and deduct this from your asking price. The less they can find wrong, the more the bidders will be willing to pay. In this way, such investments as new windows and doors can more than pay for themselves.

Jim gave us a great price, and I was also very happy with the installation team. Great workmanship, product, hey we’re friendly and clean. I am left feeling good about the company we chose to do our windows. I would certainly not hesitate in recommending them.

Andy and his crew installed the windows as agreed and were extremely pleasant. The cleanup was exceptional. They arrived on time. I would recommend North Shield to anyone looking for new windows. The service was incredible, The pricing was very good. The sales person Jim Scammel was very informative and knowledgeable. We had quotes from five (5) companies and feel good with our decision. The overall product was exceptional, but Andy was the STAR!!!! We did 17 windows and a door, so this was an important decision to our family.

We love our new windows. It was a challenging job for the guys as we are on the second floor of a condo but they were very professional and up to the task. Windows look great inside and out.

We had our windows installed last summer and absolutely love them - especially the large kitchen window. Our sales rep Jim S. was terrific and knowledgeable. The installers did a professional, skilled job of installing our windows. And the windows themselves are high quality, easy to open and easy to clean - as well as reasonably priced. We are very happy with our entire experience with this company and highly recommend them. Thank you!
