ways that windows affect your home value

A professional window replacement crew can replace an average window in about an hour, and can usually refit an entire Twin Cities home in a bit over a day. Imagine heading off to work in the morning and returning to a dramatically transformed house. What will you see when you get new windows

1. Curb Appeal Facelift

You will see a sharp increase in the curb appeal and value of your Twin Cities-area home. New windows give your home a crisp, fresh look that few other renovations can. Seen from outside, new windows radiate a luster and vitality with reflective glass and gleaming framework. Inside, new windows can direct natural sunlight in and awaken your senses.

2. Energy Efficiency

You will see a sharp uptick in home energy efficiency during Minnesota’s bitter winters and hot summers. Your HVAC system will not have to strain against air infiltration. Your dehumidifier will no longer fight against water infiltration and rising humidity.

Double and triple-glazing with inert gas between the panes prevents heat loss in winter and reduces solar heat gain in summer.

3. Simplified Maintenance for a Happier Home Life

You will see more leisure time. What do they always say about housekeepers? They do not “do windows.” Cleaning windows once was drudgery. With easily opened replacement windows, you can clean inside and outside of all your windows safely from inside your home.

Maintenance is streamlined—no scraping and repainting every year or so, and no stuck or stubborn windows. You have a right to be happy in your own home. Affordable, attractive new windows can lift your spirits by being easy to lift open.

4. Increased Natural Lighting

You will see more light. Research shows that many Americans do not get enough sunlight. With expansive new replacement windows, daylight can pour in, brightening rooms and cheering hearts. Natural lighting helps regulate your body’s sleep cycle, and the stunning clarity of modern windows surpasses the glass of windows built in earlier eras.

The technical term for this increased lighting is visible transmittance (VT). Your Twin Cities home’s older windows probably provided a VT rating of between 0.5 and 0.6; modern, new windows can provide VT of 0.8 and higher.
