How to boost curb appeal, save money and

increase your home's market value.


RI general contractorReplacing old or drafty windows and exterior doors with energy efficient products often pays off immediately in the form of lower heating and cooling costs.  It can also provide a dramatic boost to your home's curb appeal and current market value. 

According to a Remodeling Magazine Cost vs. Value Report, these projects delivered some of the best returns on investment for moderately-priced home improvements.  


Here's some insight into what you'll get for your money regarding window replacement:

$ Most Affordable - Products made of vinyl or PVC provide good insulation, are resistant to moisture and require little maintenance.  High quality vinyl windows can stand up to extreme temperatures and are less likely to crack or warp.

$$ More Costly - Fiberglass or composite window frames offer sufficient insulation and are highly durable.  They generally do not swellor shrink as temperatures fluctuate.  Severall design options are available such as textured, painted or stained.

$$$ Priciest Option - Natural wood looks great and works well with classic styling and traditional style homes, but can deteriorate over time from moisture or insect damage.  Todays modern clad wood designs have wood on the inerior side and a synthetic or aluminum on the exterior to maximize durability.
