New doors and windows increase your home’s resale value and boost curb appeal

Eventually, just about everyone sells a home.

Whether it’s your own property – after all, the average American family lives in their home for just 12 years – or the home of a loved one, at some point you’re going to have to sell a house. And you’re going to want to get the best possible price.

When that time comes, exterior home improvement projects provide two important advantages that work in your favor:

  • Good curb appeal attracts more buyers and can help your home sell more quickly.
  • Exterior home improvements can increase your house value by 5-10%.

In fact, exterior home improvement projects account for five of the top 10 best value home upgrades, according to Remodeling Magazine‘s 2017 Cost vs. Value Report.

Best Value Home Improvements

The report1 found that “curb appeal” projects generated overall higher returns on investment than interior remodels. Furthermore, the real estate professionals surveyed for the report gave the highest scores to projects that replaced existing features, like:

Entry Doors

The No. 2 best value project for mid-range home improvements is installation of a new steel entry door, for which you will recoup 90.7% of the cost, according to the report.


Replacing old windows with new vinyl windows also is considered a good return on investment, with upscale vinyl windows recouping 73.9% of their cost.
Looking for curb appeal with an added dash of oomph? Decorative glass is a great option for new windows that will make your home a standout.

Aside from the boost in curb appeal and home value, new doors and windows also provide increased:

  • Beauty
  • Durability
  • Security
  • Energy/Thermal Efficiency
