As a homeowner, you should always think about which home improvements can affect the long-term value of your property. Remodeling your bathroom or kitchen usually comes to mind, but did you know that certain exterior renovations, like window and siding replacement, can add significant value to your home? Eagle Creek Siding, LLC explains how.
About Replacement Windows
According to Remodeling magazine’s “2022 Cost vs. Value Report”, window replacement provides a great return on investment. When you sell your home, you can recover about 68% of the original cost of your project when you replace your old windows with new ones made of vinyl, and 66% when replacing them with wood windows.
Old, inefficient windows contribute to substantial energy loss and air infiltration, wreaking havoc on your indoor comfort while also causing a significant increase in energy bills. By investing in better, more energy-efficient windows — and having them installed by a reputable contractor — you can expect reduced cooling costs in summer, resulting in increased energy efficiency and thousands of dollars in savings. They’re also a great selling point if you want to attract potential homebuyers to your property.
About Replacement Siding
Apart from being unsightly, old and damaged exterior siding contributes to considerable energy loss in your home. The good news is that investing in siding replacement will help achieve better energy efficiency. Thanks to many high-quality products available on the market today, new siding is very durable and won’t be damaged by inclement weather easily.
Much like replacing old windows, siding replacement can also provide a good return on investment. According to the same report mentioned above, installing vinyl or fiber cement siding allows you to recover an estimated 67% and 68% of the total project costs, respectively.
