Earthwise Windows announces we are a 2016 SPONSOR of the COST vs. VALUE REPORT published online by Remodeling Magazine. The report compares how much the construction costs add to the resale value of your home. You’ll find stats for popular home improvement projects, such as replacement windows. This downloadable data is for key U.S. markets. The research has been published by Remodeling Magazine for over 25 years. See: http://www.remodeling.hw.net/cost-vs-value/2016/
If you haven’t seen this informational report before, it’s easy to use. For example, the report assumes your remodeling project for windows will involve the following:
Replacing 10 existing 3-by-5-foot double-hung
windows with insulated, low-E, divided-lite
vinyl windows. They will have a simulated
wood-grain interior finish; custom-color exterior
finish. The trim exterior will match existing and
not disturb existing interior trim.
Based on the above criteria, you’ll find the region of the country you live in. For this example, we will use Cincinnati, Ohio, so select the East North Central region. The next selection is whether you have a Mid-range or an Upscale home. If we look under Upscale home in “Window Replacement (Vinyl)” category, we find the average Cost vs. Value for this project is:
