When it comes to investing in your home, you should consider upgrades that can provide a high ROI (return on investment) as well as those that will improve the home’s overall function — or your enjoyment of the home. One such feature, that is often overlooked by homeowners that you should consider updating, is your windows. The following are three surprising places that can be brightened by installing new windows:
Freshen Up Your Home’s Exterior With New Windows
If your current windows have begun to show their age as a result of general wear and tear; for example, the paint around the frames has begun to fade, the wood frames have begun to splinter or chip, and more, then new windows can help to boost your home’s look, thereby improving your curb appeal. The curb appeal of your home, which refers to its overall aesthetic, has a big impact on your home value. Older windows can be real eyesores that could drive away potential buyers were you ever to sell. Not to mention that older windows can have lead paint around them which can make buyers wince.
You Will Enjoy Your Rooms More With New Windows
Upgrading your windows can have a huge impact on the interior of your house. Your rooms will not only look newer from the outside, they will look newer from the inside. High-quality new windows are also built with UV technology, which can help to protect the flooring (such as carpeting and wood floors) and furniture from fading over time as a result of overexposure to the sun. Last, but not least, new windows are better insulated and can help keep loud sounds outside from seeping in, making new windows an especially worth upgrade in your bedrooms.
New Windows Make Your Wallet Happy
Older windows are often inefficient, sometimes as a result of outdated design and sometimes as a result of the wear and tear that they’ve experienced over the years. New windows are much more energy-efficient, which means that less heat and cool air will escape through the glass. It also means that you won’t have to deal with heat coming in through your window seams during the summers or cold drafts lingering near your windows in the winters. All of this means that your energy bills will be lower and your house will be more comfortable.
