Return on investment, often referred to as “ROI,” varies depending on the project. Frequently, the projects that seem like the best investments don’t bring the greatest rate of return, while those that seem like smaller projects bring substantial returns. Real estate professionals routinely weigh in with their expert advice, and homeowners can couple that advice with Remodeling magazine’s annual “Cost vs. Value Index” to reap the greatest financial impact from their renovations.
In preparation for this upcoming winter, replacement windows are a worthy investment. Angie’s List, a home services review and referral resource, has found that the average ROI of new windows is 77 percent. The cost of installation and energy savings tend to offset at around the 10-year point.
On average, 25% of a home’s heat escapes through its windows. If you notice your furnace constantly running or a cold draft in certain areas of your home, you might consider replacing your current windows with a better fitting, more energy efficient window solution.
