Yes – one of Durabuilt’s major door manufacturing partners has found that the replacement of your home’s entrance adds real value in addition to a fresh new look. Therma-Tru’s National Home Valuation Study™ offers proof that a more attractive front entrance can considerably increase the perceived market value of a home.
The commissioned study asked more than 2,400 consumers to estimate home prices based on each home’s exterior appearance. The study found that an enhanced entryway can add as much as $24,000 to a home’s perceived value. The added value was as much as five times the cost of the entry system. The second instalment of Home Valuation Study™ found that moderately priced homes benefit from entryway updates just as much as their upscale counterparts. The new study shows that an upgraded entryway can increase the perceived value of an average home by $7,720, or 4.1%.
Replacing all your windows can provide the greatest visual impact on both the inside and outside of your home. When you think about the architectural features of your home, in most cases windows account for about 50% of the curb appeal.
