How Replacing Windows Adds Value to Your Home


If you want to prioritize your home improvement efforts, try looking for something that is going to offer the best possible return on investment. Even if you aren’t planning to sell your home in the near future, this is something that is well worth keeping in mind. A deeper look at the subject will put windows close to the top of the list. There are a couple of reasons as to why that is the case.

 

The Value of Windows

 

Windows represent an impressive financial commitment. At NorthShield Windows and Doors, we can tell you that this investment can run anywhere from a few to several thousand dollars. On the high end of things, homeowners can spend as much as twenty-thousand dollars on window replacements. This isn’t meant to scare you off. It’s just important to understand that the initial investment can strike you as a little pricey. That’s fair. However, when you have a better understanding of the value windows add to a home, it becomes easier to appreciate why the costs can be a little intimidating.

 

The Benefits of Window Replacement

 

replacing-windows One of the nice things about window replacement is that the initial investment is pretty much it. Yes, you may pay a little more for the windows, as well as for the work involved in having them professionally installed.  Once installed, windows have the potential to last for decades. Good windows are built to stand the test of time. While weather can certainly be a problem for doors and windows sometimes, the current crop of products in both those categories are built to take a lot more than you might realize. With simple maintenance, your new windows are going to be there for you for a long time.

 

The value of new windows goes beyond the point mentioned above. While you may not currently have plans to sell, the value of your home is still something that should be taken seriously. You may decide to sell in 2, 3, or even 5 years. New windows also improve the overall curb appeal of your neighborhood. Both of these benefits are tied into the fact that home buyers love new windows. They will see your home as something you are seriously passionate about, which gives your home a well-cared-for appeal.

Potential buyers also like the fact that someone else already took care of a major investment for them. Buyers often consider the costs of potential window replacements in their budget for buying a home. If they learn that you have already had the windows replaced recently, they will feel as though someone just took a huge weight off their shoulders.

 

What Do New Windows Really Mean?

 

window-replacement Let’s say you spend about $15,000 on your new windows. I know, that sounds like a lot of money. However, if you are planning to sell your home, you can expect new windows to add around $11,000 to the overall value of your home. We are talking about a return-on-investment of approximately 74%. For those who are serious about selling their home, that is one of the best ROIs that you are going to come across.

 

New windows can lead to substantial energy savings. There are a number of fantastic, energy-efficient, and green-friendly window replacement products available today. This is one of the reasons as to why the ROI on new windows is so strong. Energy-efficient windows can help to make your home more efficient at retaining hot air during the winter, and cool air during the summer. This can create some pretty amazing energy saving which are going to kick in almost immediately. Why wouldn’t they?

 

New windows can also make your home safer. This is something else that will certainly appeal to a potential buyer. At the same time, we are also talking about a benefit that you are going to be able to enjoy, as well. It doesn’t get much better than that.

 

We still haven’t even really gone into detail on the subject of curb appeal. We touched on it earlier, but understand that new windows are a powerful, straightforward way to completely transform a home. On the other hand, you can also use new windows to bring the home’s current aesthetic into something that will make you feel safe and cozy in your home.

Love our new windows and doors. We had all our windows replaced on the main floor, side door and front door, as well as the storm doors. The installation team was great. They removed the existing awning and were really great at cleaning up after the work. There were a couple of issues after the install, but the after sales service team of Alex and Walter were able to resolve it promptly. Great advice from Walter about keeping the humidity inside the house to maintain the windows, and also how to operate them properly. And thanks very much Alex and team for buying the doorbell and installing it for us, as well as fixing the bottom part of the door frames to cover holes on the flooring. Appreciate all your hard work and for going the extra mile. Will definitely recommend your company to friends, neighbors and family.

Likely a good company for windows, installers seemed competent. However for doors they seemed to have much less experience. My salesman left the company midway through the process and I wasn't informed, and turns out some miscommunication between him and I led to a product I didn't want. The door is nice, just not what I had thought I ordered, and it took about 4 months to get, so I accepted it. The paint also chipped after they left, which leaves a bad feeling (even though that's more of a manufacturer issue than NorthShield issue). I'm not saying these guys are going to be bad for you, but I'm not thrilled with my result. REPLY December 5, 2018: I had called about the paint chip and wrong door options already at the time and was told there was no recourse for me. The paint chip was there when I came home from work after the door was installed, but you provided a picture the installers took before the paint was chipped, so at that time I was told there was no recourse. The wrong options I was told was due to a salesman who took my order having left the company, and there was no paperwork showing my chosen option (no door handle hole to be cut). I will call again tomorrow and update this with the results of that conversation.

Alex and the team at north shield were amazing. Great customer service, along with a great team of installers. North shield replaced my 2 front living room windows in 1 day. They even took away my awning! Highly recommended

Very professional workers that despite finding, no vapor barrier and wood rot on our deck, fixed it right and continued to install our very beautiful door and side light without complaint. I would highly recommend Northshield to any friends, neighbors or anyone else. I am a very Happy, Happy Gal with my beautiful new door!

Installation crew showed up on time. Brought coverings and tarps to contain any mess. Installation went smoothly and the guys were very polite and considerate. The old windows and frames were removed and the jobsite was clean when they left. Great work at a good price! Thanks Andy and Serge.
