4 Keys Before You Schedule a Replacement Window Consult

You would think that any modernization project for your Long Island home — installing replacement windows, major kitchen renovations and bathroom additions — would automatically increase your home’s resale value — right? Well, not necessarily. According to the 2020 Cost vs Value report published online by Remodeling Magazine, not all renovation projects add the same value. Some actually tend to lose money in an analysis of return on investment year-over-year compared to 2019.
