There are many reasons to consider a window and door replacement renovation project, especially right now. First, if you decide to replace your windows and doors before the end of the year, you will benefit from the extended tax credits, held over from 2010 into 2011.
Then of course there are the aesthetic benefits: new windows and doors immediately improve the look of your home. Cutting-edge technology and innovative products mean that you can customize new windows and doors to blend seamlessly with your home’s architectural style and décor. Whether you need something ready-to-install or customizable, our products—like the line of Infinity by Marvin replacement windows—will give you the options you need to make the right choice for your home.
These are immediate reasons and benefits to replace your windows, but there are long-term benefits as well. Newer windows and doors are going to increase the value of your home, and that is good news whether you are in your “forever” home or if you plan to resell your current home and upgrade in the future.
If you are looking to increase your home value because you want to resell in the near future, a window replacement project is an excellent investment. Particularly in Houston, homeowners need to be concerned with energy costs; we run our air conditioners for a significant portion of the year, and the utility bills can be significant. New windows that are more energy efficient (our Infinity line is Energy Star rated) will reduce the total spent on energy: good for the environment, good for the wallet. In a difficult housing market, a home with new, energy efficient windows will be attractive to home buyers.
If you plan on staying in your home, or passing it on to your children, a window and door replacement will benefit you in the short term and your heirs down the road. A replacement project now will save you money through tax credits (through the end of 2011) as well as long-term savings in your energy bills. Newer windows are virtually maintenance-free, which means they will be easier to care for; a real concern for those who plan to age in place.
We invite you to stop in to our Renaissance Windows and Doors showroom today to discuss how a window and door replacement project can increase the value of your home.
