Puget Sound Window and Door has served the south Puget Sound residential real estate market for over five years, and as one of Milgard Windows’ preferred Seattle-Tacoma dealers, we are always looking for ways to help home owners increase the value of their homes by replacing old and outdated windows. Not only are we focused on helping each of our window customers choose the appropriate window product for their home’s architectural look, its age, and its character, PSWD experts are also thinking ahead on your behalf to the impact your new window purchase will have on the home’s resale. We want to make sure every customer is aware of and well educated about which of our window products will be best for sustaining your home’s aesthetic qualities, structural integrity and energy efficiency well into the future.
Of course, the quality and grade of installed materials such as windows and doors, will play into a home buyer’s interest in and comfort with any home they are looking at to purchase. In fact, according to a study recently conducted by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), What Home Buyers Really Want, qualities affecting a home’s energy efficiency were ranked highest by the home buyers surveyed. With this in mind, since windows are one of the most obvious structural features that impact energy efficiency, PSWD urges home owners to consider the windows in their home at the top of the list when they are considering what to do to increase resale value. PSWD also urges buyers of new construction homes to become familiar with the structural, aesthetic, and energy values of various window products. No two windows are created equal, and everything from the brand, model, and installation of a window product will impact a home’s resale and use life down the road.
Whether you are considering what you need to do to increase your home’s value in the eyes of future buyers, or you are just trying to bone up on which windows to look for in your own new home purchase, the friendly team at PSWD is here to assist with this process.

Remember, windows are going to be one of the most important factors in your home’s resale value. Home buyers will evaluate your home’s windows for their aesthetic qualities, how energy efficient they are, and whether they are structurally sound.
