As homeowners, we do a lot of prioritizing, emotional investing, and budget balancing when it comes to determining where and how we want to spend our money when making improvements to our home. Some upgrades may be considered more “fun” (e.g., a new kitchen or an addition), while others we end up making out of practical necessity (e.g., replacing rusted cast iron pipes).
Depending on who you’re talking to, impact windows might fall somewhere between the two. While they can be very aesthetically pleasing and completely transform the way you think about and prepare for hurricane season (an intangible many of us can’t value highly enough!), they’re also incredibly practical from a budget perspective. Not only do you save money on potential hurricane damage, you also reduce energy costs and homeowners insurance as well as increase the resale value of your home (need more reasons? Here are five).
Impact Windows: Worth the upgrade?
As you consider the best ways to improve your home, impact windows should be right up near the top of your list. While, yes, they can be on the pricey side, the returns in terms of peace of mind, efficiency, safety, and overall savings are enough to make it worth the investment. Not to mention, real estate agents frequently cite it as one of the best things you can do to speed up the sale – and asking price – of your home.
