Twin Cities Homeowners: Check Out the Most Popular Door and Window Projects in the United States

In preparation for our booths at the upcoming home shows in the Twin Cities, we wanted to share some things about exterior home improvement projects.  What’s trending? What’s popular?  If you’re thinking about remodeling the outside of your home, you probably are wondering about these topics.  Coming out to one of the home shows is a great way to find out what’s happening in the home remodeling industry and get some inspiration.  Why not take your to-do list and compare it to this one?  Are any of the things you’re thinking about listed here?

Since Americans spend over $400 billion every year on home remodeling projects, it is only right to take a look at what it is that they spend this money on to remodel inside the home. You can be sure that you are getting the best return on the investment that you make when you put your cash down on some of these replacement window and door projects.

Vinyl Windows

These not only are the most affordable windows on the market but they also come with the best return on investment than many of the other window and door projects that can be done. Since they come with great value compared to cost, a lot of homeowners choose to put these in the home over some of the other options.

Wood Windows

These are less appealing because not only do they cost more upfront, but they come with more upkeep. However, they are also still very popular. They do come with a return on investment, but they do not help sell a home as much as energy-efficient vinyl windows would. But the good news is you can get the best of both worlds.  We offer a number of replacement windows that have genuine wood interiors with maintenance-free exterior cladding.

Fiberglass Exterior Doors

These come with a higher return on investment than other types of entry doors in the market. Not only do they look nice but are also protective as well as affordable. They are durable and require very little in terms of maintenance. We install fiberglass doors from a number of manufacturers.

Steel Doors

Steel doors are becoming more popular, and you’ll find them on homes throughout the Twin Cities.  Homeowners choose them for not only their protective properties but also the looks that come with them. With a lot of realtors stating that a steel entry door helps to sell a home, they might just be a great investment for a lot of homeowners to make when switching out that old front door.
