How Does Stained Glass Pay for Itself?

How Does Stained Glass Pay for Itself?

We get a lot of clients who come to us looking for stained glass simply because it is so beautiful and something they really want in their Houston home. But here at Houston Stained Glass, we like to tell our clients that stained glass is more than just a lovely art form. We like to point out its value as well. In fact, we even like to say it pays for itself. The reason we say this is because stained glass adds to a house’s value–just like other home improvements. The benefits of having stained glass on your Houston home are, therefore, far more than just for beauty but for profit too. Find out how stained glass pays off big time for homeowners with the good sense to have it installed.

Stained Glass Appraises For More Than You Pay

The price of stained glass will vary depending on the size, shape, and details you want to add in. However, a good starting range is anywhere from $11-$17 per square foot for standard designs. For very intricate, custom designs, the cost could be as high as $50 per square foot. However, most people find their windows in the first range. Yes, stained glass windows cost more than a regular old window, curtains or drapes but, unlike those, they add value to your home. For example, a stained glass window that costs you $300 can be expected to appraise for 5x-10x more when you go to sell. Not a bad return for something that is spectacular and that you get to thoroughly enjoy while you live in your home.

Stained Glass Increases Curb Appeal on Your Houston Home

Stained glass is absolutely stunning. This is something nearly everyone agrees on. It is, therefore, the type of display that is especially attractive to prospective buyers. When applied on the front-facing window–in sidelights, transoms or front doors, it adds value through curb appeal. When you go to sell your home, not only will you find a home with stained glass fetches a better price but will also sell faster. The faster you sell your home the less likely you will wind up paying two mortgages and losing money. In this way, stained glass pays for itself by saving you at selling time.
