The recent 2016 edition of Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report shows that window replacement comes with a “cost-recouped” value of 71.7 percent. What exactly does that mean for homeowners, though? Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas looks at four specific reasons to invest in home improvements like window replacements.
1. Improved Aesthetics
Curb appeal plays a big role in a homeowner’s well-being. Older windows make your home look worn and beat down. Fortunately, Renewal by Andersen’s window replacements offer a strong upgrade in terms of looks. They come in a range of easily matching colors and finishes. Additionally, we offer our Kansas windows in all the most popular styles like double-hung, picture, casement, and sliding.
2. Better Durability
Modern windows are more durable than their older counterparts. Our options feature Fibrex® frames and High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass panes. Both these materials come from reclaimed materials. Fibrex consists of 40 percent wood fibers and 60 percent thermoplastic polymers. Combined, they’ve been shown to be twice as strong as vinyl. The construction of our glass panes also produces the same resistance to damage.
3. Lower Lifetime Costs
The colors on our windows result from the hues being baked into the material. Apart from making it safer and healthier that paints, this also means no need for repainting. It also ensures lower maintenance because you only need a splash of water to keep these windows clean.
4. Greater Energy Efficiency
Our Ulysses windows are a great investment because of their innate energy efficiency. Apart from durability, our materials also resist the transfer of heat across their surfaces. This keeps heat where you need it the most — inside when it’s cold, outside when it’s hot. You’ll rely on your air conditioning and heating less, resulting in up to 25% savings off your monthly bills.
Home improvements can enhance the looks, longevity, and savings on your home. Windows from Renewal by Andersen of Kansas feature many benefits that far outweigh the costs.
