Home owners can significantly increase the saleability of their property by installing new windows according to Ratedpeople.com, the UK’s largest match making service for home improvers and recommended tradesmen.
Windows are one of the most important features of any home, due to the fact that they are the only source of natural light from the outdoors. Natural lighting can have a huge impact on the tone, mood, and even the apparent size of a room so it is worth giving windows due care and attention when trying to improve a room’s appeal.
It stands to reason then, that newly installed or refurbished windows have a more positive impact on potential buyers than dirty or broken ones. Windows, along with front doors and gardens, are one of the first exterior features of a house that a potential buyer will see and take note of, so they leave a lasting impression and could make the difference between a sale and a passing up of a property.
Not only this, but modern window technology has enabled new windows to hold significant benefits in terms of heating and security. Higher density glass and improved sealing materials mean that the amount of heat lost through modern windows is significantly reduced, serving to lower the cost of heating a home. Thicker glass is also much more difficult to break, whilst also serving to reduce the level of noise coming in from outside.
Ottokar Rosenberger, Director of Sales and Marketing for Ratedpeople.com, commented: “The addition of new windows to any property does a great deal in enhancing a potential buyer’s initial opinion of a home.”
“Natural lighting effects also go a long way towards improving the overall appearance and atmosphere within a room, and a PVC window coating can make the exterior of a house look much tidier whilst also being easier to clean and maintain.”
