Simply put, an ROI measures the gain or loss you generate on a home improvement purchase versus how much you paid for the product. The ROI of a window, door, or siding purchases takes into account four factors:


●        Performance compared to industry standards

●        Energy savings or consumption

●        Contribution to the overall market value of your home

●        Total aesthetic value


According to home investment experts, a healthy ROI is roughly 75%. Which means, if you pay $100 for a product, you should expect a return of $75 either in areas such as energy costs, repairs, or a home resale. Lets’ see how windows, doors, and siding stacks up for homeowners in the Twin Cities area.


Replacement windows account for one of the highest ROIs on a home remodel.


Vinyl window replacements can return as much as 77.5 percent of their initial cost at resale. Wooden window replacements have a slightly higher ROI, at 78.8 percent. New windows may be the most efficient investment you can purchase to improve your home’s structure and value.


They enhance curb appeal, increase market value, and reduce energy consumption efficiency. There may be no other remodeling project that accomplishes all three in one project. Windows can reduce a home’s carbon footprint over multiple decades. You can significantly reduce your home’s heating and cooling costs with insulated windows that regulate heat exchange.

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl Siding is among an extensive list of outside remodeling projects that yield high returns. You can expect to recoup an average of 83% of an investment in new vinyl siding at resale. Fiber-Cement siding's ROI should bring a return of around 79%.


For example, a $9,000 investment in new vinyl siding could add up to $8,000 to your home's asking price, should you decide to put it on the market. Vinyl siding can also save you up to 50% in home heating and cooling costs. For homeowners, in Minneapolis, heating efficiency is the most important factor when purchasing siding.

Front Door

Adding a new front door is another cost-effective home remodeling project that pays off big. Swapping your old front door for a new steel front entry door can boost your home’s curb appeal while also reducing energy loss. A new steel front entry door has a national median cost of $2,000 installed but can recoup 75% of that cost at resale.


Front doors offer aesthetic appeal and stability. The biggest selling point, however, is that homebuyers value them as a high-security feature in a home. The heavier and more durable the door, the more secure the house is.
