Windows are vital to your home’s overall design. They enhance your exterior and take your interior to the next level with the natural light they bring into your living spaces.
This is why, aside from a property’s condition and appeal, home buyers also look at the windows and their features. When selling your home, make sure to highlight these four window features to convince a potential buyer.
1. Energy Efficiency
Energy-efficient windows can help keep your home cool and drive down energy costs. Double-glazed windows provide better insulation than single-pane units, especially when a certified window contractor installs them. These features improve indoor comfort, reduce structural issues due to high humidity and significantly lower thermostat settings during the coldest winters.
2. High-Quality Frame
Window frames made from high-grade, sturdy wood can prop up large and dense frames. These materials are sturdy and can last for decades, but they will require maintenance and re-staining as they age. If you’re looking for long-lasting windows that require minimal maintenance and look great, Fibrex® frames are an excellent choice. Renewal by Andersen of British Columbia provides this exclusive material that is as strong as wood and low-maintenance as vinyl.
3. Aesthetic Appeal
You can figure out the best window style for your property by looking at your home’s architectural style. Some windows are ideal for traditional homes, like Victorian, New England, and Colonial. Others are better suited to modern styles. For example, double-hung and casement windows can easily fit in traditional homes while picture windows usually look best in modern architectural styles.
Low-maintenance, long-lasting and dependable windows are a big plus for home buyers. Hassle-free cleaning is important because it means they’ll have an easy time maintaining a clear and unobstructed view as well as the smooth operation of the windows.
