What are you doing with your stay-at-home time?  From what we're hearing, many of you are making to-do lists for home improvements.  Here in the Twin Cities metro, as well as across the United States, there are a number of door and window projects that homeowners are considering. 

Of course, if you're planning on having replacement windows or exterior doors put in, you should be thinking about what you really need or want, not what's popular.  But it may help you to know what types of things homeowners in our area commonly do. Often these kinds of projects are popular because they are needful or make good financial sense.

Popular Replacement Window and Exterior Door Projects

With Americans spending $400 billion every year on home remodeling projects, it's important that a project you embark on for your home be a wise investment.  That means doing your homework and making sure you're getting good value for what you do to your home as well as satisfaction with what you get. Vinyl Windows Make the Top of the List Vinyl windows are at the top of the list and offer the most valuable return on investment. Close to half of all homeowners choose to replace those old worn out windows with energy-efficient vinyl windows that provide better insulation inside the home. They can provide a great return on investment when the time comes to sell the property.  And we're proud to install energy-efficient vinyl windows from Ply Gem. Fiberglass Entry and Patio Door Replacements

Not only quality fiberglass exterior doors  enhance the look of the home, but they also provide a strong way to protect the inside of the house, as well. You can ensure that you are protecting the inside of the home with the best way to upgrade. Fiberglass door replacements are next on the list of investments that come with better returns.

Less Popular Choices

Steel door replacements are less common, but they are also nice to have. Steel doors are not only basically maintenance-free, but they add an extra layer of security. That brings about the added benefit of more peace of mind that your home and those who live inside it are better protected.

Wooden windows are also less popular, but some homeowners are opting for having wood windows installed because of the traditional appearance and natural materials.  If you're leaning that direction, you may want to consider windows that have wood frames on the interior but maintenance-free cladding on the exterior.

If your wish list for this season is to tackle some projects that will upgrade your home and add to its value, then you have to think about the replacements that can bring back a good return on your investment.
