Window Replacements Are a Valuable Investment
Overall, the cost of replacement windows is worth the money you’ll spend—you’ll recoup about 70 to 80 percent of your costs on your home’s market value. So if your window replacement cost is $400, you can expect that to increase your home’s value by $280 to $320. To give you some perspective, replacing a home’s entry door returned around 97 percent of the initial investment while adding a sunroom returned just 52 percent. Very few improvements recoup 100 percent or more of their costs.The specific value of your window replacement depends on the area’s market, as well as what kind of window and the type of window frame you choose to purchase.
Vinyl window frames are cheaper than fiberglass and composite frames, they offer comparable energy efficiency to fiberglass and composite alternatives, and they’re much more durable than wood. The average cost for replacing and installing a standard double-hung window with insulated vinyl runs between $550 and $1,000 per window. At Windows R Us Prime, we start at just $469!
Wooden window frames clad in aluminum, vinyl, or fiberglass are also rated highly for attractiveness, but these tend to cost more, and the same windows as above would cost between $750 and $1150 each.
We offer both vinyl and wood windows and want to help you increase the value of your home!! Contact us at (304) 284-9600 to discuss your upcoming project ideas!!
