For San Diego homeowners who are in the beginning stages of deciding whether or not to replace the windows in their home, I want to introduce you to an e-book my company, BM Windows, put out a couple of years ago titled, Investing in Your Home: Replacement Windows and Doors.
The e-book makes multiple compelling arguments for why homeowners would be wise to replace their old, drafty, single pane windows with new, energy-efficient double or triple pane windows. But in case you think the e-book will just be a sales pitch from a company that sells replacement windows in San Diego, it reads much more like an informative guide from industry experts. It answers many of the common questions homeowners have about replacement windows and doors and includes perspectives from those outside of the replacement window industry, such as an architect and a respected San Diego real estate agent.
Some of the topics the e-book touches on include:
Making their home more energy efficient is the number one reason homeowners cite for replacing their windows. If your home has windows with aluminum frames or single panes of glass, you might be surprised at the difference new vinyl replacement windows could make in the comfort level of your home, as well as in your monthly energy bills.
Increased Curb Appeal
Whether you are thinking about selling your home in the near future, or just want it to look more attractive for your own enjoyment, replacement windows can make a big difference in the curb appeal of your home. New windows can give a home a fresh, updated look and are especially effective in increasing a home’s curb appeal, especially when the style of the new windows complements the style of home.
Increased Home Value
Since energy-efficient upgrades (like vinyl replacement windows) are something that today’s home buyers are looking for, it’s no wonder that new windows are at the top of the list of exterior home remodeling projects that increase the value of your home. According to the e-book, you can expect to recoup up to 70-80% of the project cost when you go to sell your home. Your home may also sell faster, according to San Diego real estate experts.
Other Reasons to Consider Replacement Windows for Your San Diego Home
Apart from the reasons listed above, the e-book also addresses some other important reasons to consider new windows for your home. For example, new windows can give you the ability to open and close your windows with ease, helping you to enjoy the beautiful San Diego climate. They can also increase the security of your home, and brighten up your home, while at the same time protecting your home’s furnishings from the sun’s damaging UV rays.
If you have been considering replacing the windows in your San Diego home, but also have other home improvement projects on your list, take a look at the e-book. It just may help make your decision a little easier.
