If you are thinking about selling your home in the future, you may be looking for ways to increase the value of the property. One of the best ways to do this is by investing in replacement double glazed windows. Although it’s no surprise that double glazing can add value to your home, many people do not realise the extent of their economic value. Even if you never plan to move, adding this to your home will not only improve the aesthetics of your property, but save you money in the long run. If you would like to learn more about how much value double glazed windows and doors add to your home, feel free to continue reading.
How does double glazing increase property value?
Windows, in general, have a huge impact on your property’s overall valuation. For many buyers, double-glazing is now considered essential and installing it will increase the value of your property. Many homeowners are very conscious of the amount of money they are spending on their energy bills, and are looking to reduce their CO2 input and overall energy efficiency. You will be surprised just how much heat can escape through single-pane windows and old windows and doors may be contributing to your high energy bills.
With double glazed glass, you will be benefiting from windows that are designed to create a more effective barrier between your home and the outside air. Many buyers also like to know that they won’t need to replace the windows during their ownership, and having this work already completed can make your home much more appealing.
Is double glazing good value for money?
With most double glazing lasting longer than 20 years, in just energy bill savings alone, you will be able to make the money back on the initial costs for installation – which just highlights why double glazing is such a beneficial investment for any homeowner. However, when it comes to the actual window to choose, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to the question of which window is best. Selecting new windows and doors is heavily dependant on your location, the architectural design of your home and also your needs regarding their functionality – which can all impact the cost of your double glazing installation.
In terms of costs, when looking to install a standard single double glazed replacement window, for example, you may be looking at paying between £200 – £500. However, how much this will cost is dependent on a number of different factors, including the materials, design, window size and other variables which can all contribute to the final figure. To understand an exact price on what installation of double glazing windows and doors would cost, it is important to speak to a professional to provide you with a quote.
