Improve Curb Appeal, Energy Efficiency, and Resale Value With This Project

Updated: Aug 8, 2018

While many remodeling projects improve the functionality of your home or modernize a dated look, and most will add to your home's resale value, there are very few projects which can accomplish all of these feats at the same time. One of the most valuable projects for a homeowner to consider is replacing outdated windows.


Window technology has improved tremendously over the last few decades, but most homeowners still don't realize how beneficial a replacement window project can be. Many people still think windows are just clear panes of glass fixed in wood or aluminum frames. However, with the advent of high quality vinyls, low-E glass, and argon or krypton insulation, replacement windows have ability to transform the exterior look of your home and drastically improve comfort inside your home. Additionally, replacing old windows with modern, energy efficient units, yields an immediate return on investment. Although exact numbers are hard to predict, estimates range between a 10% and 33% cost savings on a home's heating and cooling bills. Even on the low end, this could be hundreds of dollars per year for the average North Texas home. As an added bonus, energy efficient windows can also add longevity to your HVAC units by stabilizing the interior climate in your home.


For those who are looking to take advantage of those immediate savings, but also add that extra value to their home, a replacement window project may be exactly what you're looking for. In Dallas, according to the Remodeling 2018 Cost vs. Value Report (www.costvsvalue.com), replacing your existing windows with new premium vinyl windows will result in a 71.9% average cost recouped. This means that for every thousand dollars you spend, you will reap short-term cost savings benefits, and still see a $719 return on investment upon the sell of your home. Very few other projects have this much return on investment.
