If you’re replacing windows because you’re selling your house your priorities may differ. While beauty, maintenance-freedom, and energy savings is a common consideration, remember that when selling your home, vinyl windows recoup an average of 71% of the initial investment according to Remodeling Magazine’s 2010-2011 Cost vs. Value Report, and can be an advantageous selling point to prospective home buyers – especially when providing a transferrable warranty to the new homeowner. Consider which features are most important to you … price, quality and durability, energy efficiency, warranties and repair, appearance and design, and ordering and installation.
