There are many upgrades you can do to increase the value of your home. Siding, roofing, and remodeling are a few that come to mind. However, there is another upgrade that will allow you to increase your investment further – replacing old, tired windows. That’s why Pacific Home & Patio would like to provide you with the following ways Boise window replacements can increase your property value.
Boost Energy Efficiency
Many Treasure Valley homeowners are conscious of their home’s overall energy efficiency. By replacing old, drafty windows, you will not only boost energy efficiency, but significantly increase the comfort of your home. Homes with old, single-pane windows can especially benefit from replacement. Drafty single-pane windows don’t insulate properly, allowing cold or hot air to seep into your home during the summer and winter months. This, in turn, significantly increases your heating and cooling costs.
Replacing wood windows in an older home with modern windows can significantly increase its value. Wood windows require regular maintenance due to their exposure to the elements. Not only do they need to be cleaned but sanded and painted regularly. When exposed to high levels of rain or snow, wood windows can also start to rot. Modern window materials made from fiberglass, vinyl, or composite do not face these same issues. Instead, they are weather resistant and don’t require repainting. Furthermore, since these materials minimize maintenance, they are an extremely valuable asset to Treasure Valley homeowners.
Boost Aesthetic Appeal
The aesthetic value of a home can often be boosted due to the installation of Boise replacement windows. While many people think wood windows are more attractive than vinyl or fiberglass windows, nothing could be further than the truth. When it comes to modern window materials, there is a wide variety of colors and designs to choose from. In fact, vinyl windows can be made to look just like wood. When choosing new windows, it’s important to make sure they match the existing color and style of your home.
Furthermore, replacement windows can also improve the inside of your home. Specially treated glass can allow for more natural light while keeping the heat of summer outside. Natural light also helps to make the inside of your home look and feel bigger.
Reduce Unwanted Noise
Old, single-pane windows are not only hard on your energy costs, but they also do little to reduce unwanted noise. Double or triple-pane windows, on the other hand, have higher STC ratings and are great at keeping your home much quieter. A home with higher STC rated windows are often valued much higher than those with lower quality windows.

From aesthetic appeal to energy savings, replacement windows can significantly increase the value of your home. The best part?
