A common thought to homeowners when deciding whether or not to pursue a home improvement project is “will this project be worth it?” Luckily, the Remodeling Cost Vs. Value report is a helpful resource in this decision process. This data includes the average resale value of a variety of different projects including, vinyl replacement windows, vinyl siding, and entry doors (steel and fiberglass).
This data shows the average vinyl replacement windows project in the Syracuse area (consisting of the replacement of 10 average sized insulated vinyl windows with low-e) costs around $9,795 with a resale value of $6,300! This means that you are recouping 64.3% of the money that you spent. Not to mention, all of the money that you will be saving on energy costs as well.

Replacing your doors is not only a great way to save on energy costs but it also adds great resale value to your home.
