Your home is your castle, and in Los Angeles chances are, that castle is the biggest investment you are likely to make in your lifetime. So it makes sense to make strategic investments into your home that will not only beautify it but also protect its long-term value as well.
In a 2014 study conducted by Remodeling Magazine, replacing vinyl windows in the Pacific region of the United States created a 100% return on value when using midrange vinyl windows. Those using higher end window replacements could expect to recoup 98% of value. The study included costs for labor, materials and related expenses for trade persons involved in the installation and replacement of windows.
The same study also found that replacing an entry door with a new steel entry door yielded a recoup value of almost 97%. The average job cost was estimated at $1,162 and the recouped resale value was estimated to be $1,122. In fact, replacing a front door with a new steel door ranked #1 in a comparison of midrange remodeling projects.
In addition to pumping up the curb appeal of your home, new steel doors are winners when it comes to improving energy efficiency. The same argument can be made in replacing windows as well. If you replace both, you could see savings of as much as $500 a year, depending on your individual circumstances. This is in addition to a green energy tax credit of 10 percent for this type of upgrade.
