If you’re planning to put your home on the market in Greensboro NC in the near future or you are planning to stay, incorporating home improvements for added residential value are always a great choice. There are many options out there but only a few will show high returns. Window replacement and renovations to your bathroom or kitchen will often show the greatest return for every dollar spent on the homestead.
Most people intuitively understand that a fully restored kitchen with newly installed appliances, cabinets, and flooring will greatly increase the value and the appeal of a property. The same is true for upgrading your bathroom: The value of functionality and looks in the bathroom is apparent.
Sometimes the value visible from newly installed windows is not always easy to see but the effect of upgrading windows can be just as advantageous as kitchen and bath remodels for improved comfort and home value. With this being said, a bathroom or kitchen remodel is almost not even complete
With older homes, you may find that their original windows are still single pane which means that they are not as energy efficient as double paned windows. No matter how hot or cold climate, replacing single paned windows is always a wise choice. In cold climates you can see savings in heating costs and in hot climates you will see savings in cooling costs. If you have a high quality Renewal by Andersen (RbA) replacement window installed properly, you may find even greater savings. Customers of RbA window replacement installation services in Greensboro, Fayetteville, and Raleigh have all found great savings on their energy bills.
Also make sure not to settle for low quality windows because this will gauge on how much you will ultimately save over their lifetime. If there is an energy star rating on the window, you can rest assured that you will be investing wisely. Don’t settle for the generic mom and pop produced replacement windows out in Southern Pines NC that won’t last you even 5 years. If you choose Renewal by Andersen’s windows you can guarantee that with their Fibrex material, you will have you a window that will last you well into your old age if not past that.
Generating high home energy savings is not the only benefit of installing new replacement windows in your Greensboro home. You are also reducing the carbon emissions that are released into our atmosphere. When you are using less energy you are contributing to less pollution. In Central North Carolina, much of our energy is produced by coal which pumps out millions of carbon monoxide particles into the air we breathe every day. Start saving the environment today and go green by buying new windows for your home or business.
Another excellent plus when upgrading your windows is the more refined noise reduction attributes. The noises emitted from the Greensboro and Raleigh city life can sometimes be unbearable. By reducing this noise pollution, you can actually reduce your stress levels. A peaceful home is a happy home and these are things that home buyers may look for when searching for a new home.
Yet another way to make your home more comfortable would be to incorporate glare resistant window films which is very simple, attractive, and easy to install. These window tint coverings not only reduce glare but can reflect harmful ultra-violet rays from damaging your carpets, rugs, furniture, and even your own skin. I highly suggest this option when working with a window replacement company. For added security, they also offer shatterproof windows that can withstand impact during storms, accidents, and breakings.
When sitting down to discuss financing this investment, you will quickly realize how costly this process may be. Depending on how many windows and the quality of windows you could be looking anywhere from a couple hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars so make sure to do your research and pick the style and brand that best fits your needs and budget. If you want to save the most money make sure to replace all of your windows at the same time. This will lower your labor costs and you may even gain a better discount in quantity.
