Window Features That Attract Home Buyers

Many homeowners are skeptical when it comes to upgrading their homes before selling them. However, there are minor upgrades that can boost the value of your property. Homebuyers are attracted to features that improve energy efficiency, such as new patio doors and windows.

Find out what window features home buyers find attractive in this blog post.

Improved Comfort

Aside from looks, comfort is a key consideration for homeowners. Of course, you’d want windows that can help keep your home warm in winter and cool in summer. Windows and doors with multi-pane glass and Low-E coatings can help with your year-round comfort. When selecting windows, look for the ENERGY STAR® label. This label ensures that a window or patio door meets the U-factor and solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) requirements in your area.

A Seamless Transition

Those who are coming from an apartment or a small home are enticed by the idea of hosting major gatherings for friends and family. An open floor plan that allows people to move effortlessly from the indoors to outdoors attracts prospective buyers. Sliding French doors will create a smooth transition between your indoor and outdoor living spaces. These doors can also make a room appear larger and they save space. Pairing stationary picture windows with sliding patio doors will provide a classic look to your home. This window-door combination will give you an uninterrupted view of your outdoor living space and also protect you from harsh elements.

Superior Protection

Research suggests that homeowners usually only purchase windows once in their lifetime. For this reason, you should only choose windows that can offer your home the best protection. Another thing you should consider is the ease of maintenance. Quality frame materials like Renewal by Andersen®’s Fibrex material is guaranteed not to chip and doesn’t require repainting. Our windows also come in a wide selection of styles and customization options.
