Homeowners are being handsomely rewarded in 2013 for improving the energy efficiency and aesthetics of their residential homes. For the first time in several years the national average for “remodeling return on investment” saw an increase by several ticks in all remodeling categories. Homeowners can remodel their Maryland & Virginia homes while improving its resale value and recouping most of their initial investment. Not to mention the additional savings involved when using Energy Star rated products to improve the efficiency of their home such as energy saving replacement windows.
For example: if you spend $9,770 for replacement windows, the resale value of those windows (based on this years report) would be $6,961. That’s an outstanding 71% of your initial investment recouped for upgrading and replacing windows for your home. That means you can enjoy an entire house full of brand new energy saving windows while only spending $2,809. The best part? this doesn’t even include the energy savings you’ll see on your heating and cooling bills.
Some of the highlights from the report would be steel entry door replacement seeing an 85% return on investment and minor kitchen remodels such as kitchen cabinet refacing seeing a 75% return on investment.
