Replacing your windows to EnergyStar rated National Vinyl windows could increase the value of your home. As mentioned before, windows preserve most of their initial value especially given their long life expectancy. At a rate of 72.3% estimated for 2020 an average total window replacement job costing $17,925 would preserve $13,018 of its initial value.
Moreover, many buyers are willing to pay a premium for energy savings. Here we try to answer the question : What’s the return on energy savings if you sell your home? What follows is what we estimated in Scarborough:

Put differently, a window investment in Scarborough can add between 0.17% percent and 0.87 % percent to the asking price of your home via the energy efficiency premium buyers have shown a willingness to pay. Combined with the aforementioned +72.3% retained upfront worth of your windows, and National Vinyl’s lifetime warranty, the value proposition for a Scarborough homeowner is relatively clear.
The variation between the range for Scarborough and Portland, which for reference, would yield a potential premium range of 0.17% percent and 0.25% percent respectively, is derived from a number of factors, particularly; the 0.23% percent difference in median home prices, a buyers’ likelihood to pay more for energy savings at a given price range in the Portland-South Portland region, and energy price differences between Scarborough and Portland.
