Increasing the Value of Your Home With Custom Windows and Doors

Increasing the Value of Your Home With Custom Windows and Doors

Equipping your home with a new set of triple-pane windows and a sturdy front door can be an affordable way to increase the value of your home一all the while protecting you from frigid Calgary winters.   

While new windows and doors do make your property more appealing on the housing market, making these upgrades with a return on investment in mind may be misguided. Renovations should aim to improve your standard of living. 

But if window and door installations are what you are looking for, Asonic Roofing is your contractor. Our fully certified professionals have been renovating Calgary homes since 2011 and offer a 10-year labour warranty on all installations. Call us for a free assessment.

Will New Windows Increase The Value Of My Home? 

Replacing your cracked or warped windows with triple-pane, argon-filled ones will definitely increase the value of your home. New windows add value to your home in 3 ways: 

  • Improve curb appeal 
  • Increase insulation 
  • Enhance security 

Furthermore, because a new window can last anywhere from 20 to 50 years before needing to be replaced, freshly installed windows provide lasting peace of mind to potential buyers. This can make your home more appealing to buyers when you sell. 

However, new windows will not necessarily result in a return on investment (ROI). Statistics show that the ROI for replacing windows is about 85%. This means that spending $10,000 on new windows will on average increase the value of your home by $8,500.

A positive ROI is most likely when:

You replace your windows yourself: Given the training required for window replacement, DIY is not an option for most homeowners. 

You remove your windows yourself: Removing windows is a more manageable task for most homeowners. Ask your contractor if they are willing to reduce labour costs if you remove your windows yourself. 

Buy discounted windows: Window manufacturers and stores may sometimes sell their products for cheap if they have been sitting on the shelves for too long. Purchasing discounted windows can be a good way to profit from window replacement if you can afford to wait for the right opportunity. 

Another way to yield an ROI with your windows is through decreased heating and cooling costs over time. Because new windows are likely to improve your home’s insulation, heating and cooling become more efficient. The money you would be saving over time could offset some of the costs of the new windows. 

In short, new windows will increase how much your home is worth, but that does not mean you will always realize an ROI. Install new windows for the benefits they bring to your home一not the money you could be making off them. 

Will New Doors Increase The Value Of My Home?

Renovating the entrance to your home can increase its value for the same reasons: better curb appeal, better insulation, and better security. 

But just like with new windows, banking on your custom estate double doors to result in an ROI is far from guaranteed. Replacing an existing door with a steel one, for instance, has been shown to result in an ROI between 69% to 91%一depending on the year. The story is a familiar one: unless you can do it yourself, you will probably not make any money from your door replacement.  

That being said, the numerous advantages and the peace of mind that come with a brand new front door can make the switch worthwhile. 

Custom Windows And Doors Make Your Home More Desirable 

Replacing your windows and doors can increase the value of your home. The improved curb appeal, enhanced insulation, and a better sense of security are all desirable characteristics potential buyers look for in a home. 

However, making your home worth more is not the same thing as realizing an ROI on your renovations when you sell it. That is why you should primarily make these improvements for what they bring to the table.

FAQs

Q: When should I replace my windows? 
A: We recommend replacing your windows if they are starting to warp or crack or if they are more than 20 years old. 

Q: What is a low E window?
A: Low E stands for “low emissivity.” Low E windows are preferred by homeowners as they are more energy-efficient, hold the temperature better, and offer better protection from UV Rays.

Q: When should I replace my doors?
A: Like windows, doors should also be replaced if they are starting to warp or crack. Doors that are unusually difficult to open or close should be inspected as well.
