Will a Window Replacement Project Increase Your Home’s Value?
There are many benefits to replacing the windows in your home, particularly if your current windows are more than 10 years old. Window technology has advanced considerably over the years, and the windows of the past are practically dinosaurs at this point, offering little else than a view of the outdoors. And, while improved curb appeal and energy efficiency are certainly top benefits that homeowners expect to receive with new windows, for some, increasing home value is more important, especially if you’re looking to sell sometime soon. So, will investing in a window replacement project deliver the increase in home value that you’re looking for?
Short Answer: Yes!
Replacing your old windows with modern updates will certainly increase the value of your home. Though you’ll pay a price up front, your return on investment will be significant. According to the latest data from Remodeling Magazine, investing $17,641 in new vinyl windows will deliver $12,761 in home value—that’s a 72.3% return on investment! It’s no wonder why Forbes Magazine lists window replacement in the top ten home improvement projects that increase home value.
A More Energy Efficient Home – Another Way to Recoup Costs
Modern replacement windows are prized in the industry for the outstanding energy efficient benefits they provide. Features vary, but even low-end windows offer significant improvements over windows of the past. By better sealing and insulating your home, energy efficient windows can help minimize heat loss, which will make it easier for your HVAC system to keep the interior cool in the summer and warm in the winter. With less energy being used to heat and cool your home, your energy bills can drop, delivering savings to you every month. And, those savings can certainly add up to pay for your investment over time.
Where to Go for New Replacement Windows
At Dreamstyle Remodeling, we’re not just another home improvement company, and we don’t install just any windows. Our mission is to update your home in the best possible way, and that means installing windows that are designed to deliver the best benefits, including improved energy efficiency, curb appeal, and home value. That’s why we install windows from Pella, one of the most notable names in the industry.
Benefits of Pella Windows
Pella windows are available with vinyl frames—popular for their insulating and low-maintenance properties, and the fact that they never need to be repainted—and fiberglass frames that pack a little more oomph in terms of strength. No matter which type of frame you prefer, your new replacement windows will feature two panes of low-E glass for the ultimate thermal performance.
What Is Low-E Glass?
The term “low-E” stands for “low-emissivity,” which refers to the amount of heat, whether from the sun or your HVAC unit, that can pass through the window. Having one pane of this insulated glass in a window will do wonders for minimizing heat transfer, but having two panes like Pella windows do, heat transfer is all but eliminated.
Numerous Customization Options
When you partner with Dreamstyle Remodeling for new windows, you’ll work with one of our knowledgeable designers who will help you navigate all the customization options that are available.

- Between-the-glass blinds – Say goodbye to easily breakable window blinds. Between-the-glass blinds hang safely protected within the two glass panes.
- Nearly invisible screens – Window screens have come a long way over the years. These modern updates are barely discernable, and they’ll maximize natural light and airflow into your home.
- Impact-resistant glass – If you’re worried about hail, the neighbor kid’s baseball, or any other flying projectile damaging your new windows, impact-resistant glass will ease your concerns.
