If you’ve been fortunate enough to receive a sizable tax return, then you may be considering what you ought to spend it on. Of course, you could ‘waste’ in on the holiday of a lifetime, or you could be sensible and spend it on new replacement windows for your residence.
Before you accuse us of going nuts, here are a few very good reasons why using your tax return for replacement windows is a sound investment.
Why Replacement Windows Are a Good Use of Your Tax Return
Jetting away on vacation is desirable of course, but what about at the end of your trip when you return home? Will you be filled with doom and gloom at the prospect of life in a residence that is too cold in the winter and too warm in the summer? You spend most of the year at home, so why not make it a comfortable place to be for the whole twelve months?
Window fashions fade in and fade out and if your windows are old, then the chances are that they will make the rest of your house seem old. They may also have had quick repair jobs, or have become rusty, or your wooden windows may have warped. By installing modern replacement windows you will come home to a more attractive house, which will also appeal to potential buyers if one day you decide to sell.
Your windows probably functioned as they were meant to function when they were first installed, but over time exposure to the elements may cause them to function less well now than they did then. If you have windows that are tricky to open or won’t open at all, then you should really consider replacing them.
You may think that modern replacement windows do not add much to the value of a property but you could not be more wrong. People will be looking for homes not only with an external and internal appeal, but also with windows that will help keep energy bills for heating and air conditioning down. Having poor quality older windows can knock significant dollars off the value of your home.
