As you consider saving up for various home improvements, one of the factors you might be considering is how an upgrade such as new windows, can actually save you money in the long term. At Berg Home Improvements, we understand the importance of getting the most of your money. Not only do new windows improve your home’s energy efficiency, but they can increase the resale value of your home.
Getting new windows for your entire house can be an investment. According to Consumer Reports, the average cost of replacing all windows tends to range from $8,245 to $17,645, including the cost of labor and disposal of the old windows.
In some cases, you may be able to replace only windows that are damaged, however there is value in replacing particularly old windows all at once. New windows freshen up the appearance of your home’s exterior, heightening its curb appeal and increasing its attractiveness to future buyers. In fact, Money magazine lists new windows as one of their top six affordable renovations to boost your home’s value.
In 2022, homeowners who replaced vinyl windows recouped 67.5% of the cost when they resold their home, making it one of the most worthwhile home improvements documented by Remodeling magazine for that year. Combine that with all of the immediate benefits of new windows in your home, and calling Berg Home Improvements for a free estimate can start to seem like a no-brainer.
If you’re thinking of selling your house in the future, new windows can be a worthwhile investment. Before putting a home up for sale, you’ll want to assess the state of your current windows–are any broken, drafty, or inefficient? If so, it can negatively affect your listing price or lead buyers to negotiate a repair or credit for windows before purchase.
Not only do new windows increase the value of your house, but you can save money in the short term by improving your home’s energy efficiency. In fact, the U.S. Department of Energy reports that heat transfer through windows is responsible for as much as 25-30% of the energy used to heat and cool homes. Improving your windows’ energy efficiency can not only keep out uncomfortable drafts, but it can save you on your day-to-day energy bill.
Additionally, since windows are one of the first parts of the house that people see, updating dated windows can improve your home’s look by investing in quality replacements from industry leaders like Midway Alliance, Marvin, Provia, Pella and more.
No matter if this is your forever home or you’re simply looking to increase value before a sale, there are many benefits to getting new windows installed. The process starts with a free estimate from one of our expert contractors at Berg Home Improvements. To learn more, contact us today.
