3 Ways Replacement Windows & Doors Improve Home Values

If you’re considering selling your New Jersey home, you may be wondering what you can do to attract more buyers and increase your home’s value. Before committing to a remodel project, it’s important to understand that it’s rare for any home improvement to provide 100 percent return on investment. However, replacing old windows and patio doors rank higher on the list than several other types of home upgrades. This is according to a 2020 report from Remodeling.com that covers the Middle Atlantic region of New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.

Homeowners in this region recoup an average of 72 percent of the cost when installing vinyl replacement windows and 69 percent of the cost when installing wood replacement windows.

They don’t include numbers for composite windows, like Renewal by Andersen’s exclusive Fibrex, but consider that this product combines the best of both wood and vinyl.

Below we outline three other factors to consider.
