Outside of a possible business investment, purchasing a house and property is the single most expensive and important commitment one can make. However, the initial purchase of the home is just the beginning. Following the exciting day of “signing your life away” comes the home maintenance, keeping the house up to date, and paying for that investment.
Often, that purchase involves investing in an older home, sometimes referred to as a “fixer upper.” Others perhaps built a new home 20 or 30 years ago and have come to realize there are improvements that must be made. Whatever the case may be, there comes a time when conditions call for new windows and doors. The benefits of replacement windows and doors are many. One value of installing new and improved windows and doors may simply involve the aesthetics or enhanced beauty of the home. This results in creating greater curb appeal which gives positive effect to the value and marketability of the home.
Perhaps an even greater benefit than beauty is the energy efficiency that comes with new and improved windows. The cold draft is now gone. The new and improved glass systems retain the heat in the winter and keep it cooler in the summer, making heating and cooling so much easier and more efficient. Installing the new windows and doors gives opportunity to use new sealant and caulking material, offering permanent flexibility against cracking or splitting in even the most extreme weather conditions.
The benefits of energy efficiency have recently led to yet another advantage of replacement windows and doors. As recent as December 2015, President Obama and the United States Congress made way for multi-year extensions of tax incentives for any home improvements that increase energy efficiency. The Window and Door Manufacturers Association as well as the National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association were quick to welcome the passing of this Legislation. Among many provisions approved in this legislation is included the extension of the Energy Efficiency Tax Incentives through 2016. It also extends the tax credit for energy efficient improvements for new home construction as well as existing homes.
