Be aware of the benefits you should receive from your new or replacement windows:
Good Return On Investment (ROI)
Several sources indicate that the return on investment in replacement windows can range from 80% to 90%. Many reports show that window replacement ranks in the top 5 for projects with the highest return on investment.
Greater Re-Sale Value
Due to soaring energy prices, home buyers are factoring in the quality of the home’s windows and doors in their buying decision. As competition rises for home seekers, improving your home by upgrading to Energy Star windows can help separate your home from others on the market.
Increase Curb Appeal
Changing out your windows and/or doors should make an immediate and stunning impact on your home’s exterior. Our vast selection of window and door products offer you options that compliment either a contemporary or traditional style home.
Vinyl window and door products are designed to be low-maintenance. For instance, vinyl frames will never have to be painted, and fibreglass frames are inherently stable so their factory paint stays on for a lifetime. In addition, many of the hardware systems for windows and doors are made of durable, die-cast zinc, or stainless steel to hold up to thousands upon thousands of cycle-tests.
All Dayside windows and doors have been tested for forced-entry by an independent national certification organization. In addition, many of our windows and doors now offer multiple-point locking systems that make it nearly impossible to break-through the lock.
Reduced Sound Transmission
Windows and doors are the weakest links in terms of sound control in your home structure. However, your new or replacement windows and/or doors should provide reduced sound transmission for your home.
Less Strain On Our Environment
Replacing inefficient windows and doors has a positive effect on our earth. Using less energy to heat and cool your home means that you’re tapping less into our natural resources and reducing the processing of those resources.
