“Potential home buyers look at the quality of openings much more than 15 years ago when shopping for a new house. They will accept decorating the home’s rooms to their taste without any problems, but will not necessarily feel like setting up a construction site to change doors and windows. I have noticed that listings sell much more quickly when their openings are of recent make and good quality,” said Hélène Dupont, a certified real estate agent working in the Eastern Townships since 1993 for Immeubles H. Dupont.

Many specialists agree: people look for turnkey homes with respect to major renovations.

“People look at comfort and energy consumption a lot when comes the time to do an important transaction such as buying an income property or even their homes. The energy bill weighs heavily in the balance, and quality doors and windows reassure buyers,” specified Jacques Nolet, a real estate agent working in the Montreal region at Royal Lepage Tradition.

Groupe Innomax, a large builder of luxury town houses on Montreal’s south shore, informed us this week that JELD-WEN doors and windows have been chosen for current construction projects. “We are in an evolving market where comfort, accessibility and quality without compromise are the foundation of solid relationships. That is why we have chosen a Canadian manufacturer of doors and windows that is a blue chip company for us and our clients,” said Kim Maltais, from Groupe Innomax Inc.

Changing your doors and windows may seem to be a daunting project. However, a project of this nature also has several major advantages, including increased comfort, reduced energy consumption and greater ease in selling your home down the line. What’s more, grants are available. Find out more at the JELD-WEN retailer nearest you.
