Undertaking any home renovation project can feel daunting, so you need to be sure of a worthwhile return on investment before committing to any renovation service. Whether you’re looking to increase the value of your home for resale, or hoping to save money in the long term, it’s important to understand which renovations will offer you that desirable ROI.
One of the best practical investments you can make in both the resale value and efficiency of your home is replacing the windows. Over time, windows lose their energy efficiency, meaning you pay higher energy bills to compensate. Depending on the age and quality of your windows, you could save significantly and even invest in your home’s value simply by replacing your old windows with beautiful, efficient, and maintenance-free windows from Rolox Home Service.
Cost of Window Replacement
The ultimate cost of replacing windows varies depending on the number and type of windows in your home, but you can reference our window replacement cost guide to get an idea of what to expect.
You shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality for the sake of staying within budget — which is why we at Rolox Home Service provide the highest levels of quality and craftsmanship at an affordable price. Our process is uniquely customized to each customer’s situation, and we’re happy to offer an in-home consultation to help you make an informed decision.
Because we don’t want cost to be a deterrent from investing in the renovations your home needs, we offer financing to fit nearly all budgets. Especially when it comes to essential home improvements for deteriorating parts of your home, we don’t want you to delay. You should enjoy the comfort of your beloved home now, not when it’s too late and results in an even larger expense.
Should You Replace All Windows At Once?
If your home has a lot of windows, you might be concerned about the total cost for replacing them all, but we still typically recommend replacing all of your windows at once. Replacing your windows one at a time may seem cheaper in the short term, but it will cost more in the long run with the added stress and paperwork of multiple home renovation projects.
Replacing all of your windows also makes it easier to maintain a consistent style and quality throughout your home, and aesthetics are always a consideration when it comes to a home’s resale value. Considering replacing all of your windows at once also ensures the best possible energy efficiency throughout your home, the benefits can significantly outweigh the costs by generating notable savings over time. We strive to make it easy!
How Replacing Windows Saves Money
As a homeowner, you want to know that any money you put into your home will add value. Even if you have no plans to sell, your home’s value is a long-term investment in your future. You want as much cost as possible to be recovered in the subsequent value gained — and replacing the windows is great for resale value!
According to national averages for cost vs. value in 2021, you can expect to recoup around 68.6% of the cost for vinyl window replacement. Combining this with the energy savings you’ll gain from new windows, you can really expect to recoup as much as 100% of the cost within five to seven years.
Your windows could be causing up to 30% of heat gain and loss in your home, meaning your cooling and heating are working overtime — and so is your wallet! Living in or around Kansas City and in Kansas or Missouri means you experience both hot, muggy summers and cold, snowy winters. Replacing your windows can lead to significant savings on otherwise exorbitant heating and cooling bills year round.
Additional Savings From Replacing Windows
In order to maximize your savings from replacing your windows, Rolox Windows are both National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) and Energy Star certified. In fact, our windows exceed Energy Star standards by up to 26% across the board!
When you replace your windows with new Energy Star certified windows like ours, you’re eligible for special savings on your utilities for each window replaced. Energy savings programs exist in every community we serve, not to mention federal tax credits for residential energy efficiency. Visit Energy Star’s website and enter your zip code to find savings specials available to you.
