You probably already know that Energy Star certified replacement windows let you flood your New Jersey or New York Metro home with plenty of natural sunlight while saving you money on your heating and air conditioning bills. But, did you know the other ways that your home upgrades impact the value of your home?
Your windows work hard. They enhance energy-efficiency, influence your home’s appearance, improve security and add value to your property. Here’s a quick recap of three ways high-quality, high-performance windows and patio doors deliver value for our New Jersey & Metro New York customers.
1. Design: Function, Beauty and Performance
Replacement window and patio door design is a complex concept. One on hand, design involves deciding whether you want a sliding patio door or a French-style hinged door, or casement windows or double-hung windows in your bay window configuration. Design also means choosing Energy Star labeled glass that helps you control light levels or block harmful UV rays that can damage upholstery. Design also influences functionality. For example, some operational handles and levers may make it easier for people to open their windows if they have physical limitations. Colors, trim width, framing material and other details impact the visual appeal. Simply stated, considering all aspects of “design” carefully will enhance the value of your new windows and patio doors.
To achieve maximum value, every patio door and replacement window should be constructed based on your financial and physical needs, decorating goals, how you will use your room and the overall aesthetic you want to create.
2. Energy Efficiency Versus Conserving Energy
While energy-efficient windows add value by helping you control the amount of money you spend heating and cooling your home, there is another “energy conserving” characteristic built into custom replacement windows and patio doors.
Time is a valuable commodity when you are busy working, running the kids to music lessons and social events and doing all those errands that keep your home running smoothly. Designing windows that make it more efficient and easier to clean and maintain allows you to spend more time doing things you want or need to do.
Tilt-to-clean double-hung windows and lift out patio door panels make it simple to clean both exterior and interior surfaces from inside your home, less time spent running back and forth. As a bonus, technology applied during the manufacturing process virtually eliminates water spots from rain splatter when the sun directly shines on the glass. Plus, when you choose Fibrex frames built to stay beautiful for years without rusting, flakes, peeling or pitting, you can avoid the annual ritual of scraping, priming and painting your window and door frames.
It’s hard to put a price tag on the value of saving time and energy, but your new patio doors and windows will definitely require less upkeep than aging, dilapidated doors and windows and, since they are designed to maximize energy-efficiency, they will help you save money on your heating and cooling bills in the process.
3. Boosting Confidence & Peace of Mind
Knowing you are doing everything you can to protect your family is important to our New Jersey and New York Metro neighbors. Features and accessories like recessed door locks, window guards that prevent toddlers from falling through a window and optional TruScene window screens that keep those irritating no-see-ums outdoors, all work together to make your indoor spaces safer and more comfortable for your family. What is it worth to you to know that safety features work 24/7 to improve security in your home?
