When you start thinking about replacing your windows or upgrading your doors, your first consideration is probably how your chosen item will look when the project is finished. While most home improvement projects do significantly impact your home’s aesthetic, they’re also an investment, and like any investment, you want to be sure you see a return. But how do you know which projects offer the best return on investment? Should you look into replacement windows ? Is replacing your siding going to pay off in the future? What will new entry doors do for you when it’s time to sell your home?
As a leader in the home improvement industry, EcoView understands that it’s important you get the greatest value for your money. Fortunately, windows, doors, and siding offer some of the highest returns, and to help you reach your long-term goals while getting the home you want now, we’ve put together some info below.
According to a Cost vs Value report on Remodeling.net, replacing your entry door with a new steel model has an ROI yield of up to 98%. Not only does a new door offer an impressive return, but it also can help you save money by reducing your energy costs.
Additionally, because your front door is one of the major exterior focal points of your home, a beautiful and efficient one will increase your curb appeal and make your property more desirable when you decide to sell. Interior doors, while they don’t yield quite as high of a return, also increase the value of your home. Buyers are interested in a home that is well-maintained, and quality interior doors are an indication of that.
Replacing your inefficient siding with new fiber-cement siding has an ROI of nearly 84% according to the same Cost vs Value report. It’s important to note that while replacing your outdated siding adds value to your home, the amount of money you can expect to see back depends upon the material you select. Fiber-cement siding is the most desired material due to its durability, style, and efficiency.
No matter what climate you live in, replacing your windows is a sound investment and the higher the quality of your chosen windows, the greater the return. The Remodeling Cost vs Value report found that window replacements tend to average an ROI of around 79%. While this number is lower than either doors or siding, there are other factors to consider. It’s hard to put a number on the comfort you feel in your home when you have properly installed energy efficient windows. Beyond your own comfort, like doors, efficient windows will reduce your heating and cooling bills, saving you money.
All of the above home improvement projects are safe bets if you want to see a significant return on investment, but the quality of the product and the work matters a great deal.
