First and foremost, the curb appeal of a property is enhanced tremendously by new window installation. Appearances within the home also improve, since every room essentially gets a mini facelift or upgrade from the process. There are many style options available that homeowners can customize their order to match the style of not only the home, but of each room. They can mix and match different shapes, add a new window to a wall that doesn’t currently have one, or even introduce stained or artisan lead glass for an extra special touch.
Curb appeal is about more that just the current property owners appreciating the house, it’s also an important selling point if they ever decide to put the property for sale. Prospective buyers and their agents appreciate the value of buying a home with major improvements, such as new window installation. Because they are making a huge financial investment in the purchase of the property, most buyers want to make sure that they won’t need to worry about any major renovations in the near future. They are also conscious of rising energy costs and want to make sure properties they view are up-to-date with energy saving features. Prospective buyers see a home with newer features not only as a nicer looking property, but one that is well kept, modern, and energy efficient.
They also cut down on cool air and wind drafts that come into the home. This is especially noticeable during winter weather when cold drafts cause homeowners to crank up the heat and get out extra blankets.
Another benefit of replacement is that modern options are much more energy efficient. Environmentally conscious homeowners appreciate that they’re being responsible about their energy consumption. They also enjoy the savings that come with lowered energy bills. Some research indicates that new windows pay for themselves in as little as three to five years, thanks to the money saved on energy bills. As electricity costs continue to soar, this may become the most convincing benefit of all.
