How new windows can add value to your home

Here at Clear View not only do we offer aluminium windows as an alternative to the windows already installed in a home but we recognise the other benefits of replacing your existing windows. One of the main reasons people look to having new windows implemented around their property is that it can provide a refreshing feel to the aesthetics of the property, but many do not realise that by installing new windows you can drastically increase the value of your home.

One of the newer trends when it comes to home refurbishment is that many customers are looking for products with energy efficiency in mind. Not only do old, chipped, wooden single paned windows look bad but they can also let the heat out and the cold in. Energy Star argue that by installing energy efficient windows around your property you can save up to £300 in heating and cooling costs per year.

When people are looking at having new windows installed the main concern that springs to mind is the overall cost of the process. Looking at the facts, American home improvement channel HGTV have expressed that by investing in energy efficient windows a homeowner can recoup between 60%-90% of the costs by increasing the home’s value by that percentage.

Energy Star estimates that the average cost of window replacement in a home can range from £5200-£7000. Even though these figures look quite costly, if you take into consideration the before raised point about the heating costs you will save on, the longevity of your new windows and the recouping of around 60%-90% of the costs then investing in new windows is probably the right choice.

It wouldn’t be too odd to assume that when many think about raising the value of their home then the most probable path that would be selected would be to have a brand new kitchen installed. By recognising the importance of windows and the facts and figures provided in this article it is easy to see that there are other options that yield better results for increasing a property’s value.

If you require any more information about raising the value of your home via windows and doors or if you would like to find out about energy efficient windows and doors then please don’t hesitate to contact Clear View on: 08001357167
