Benefits of Installing New Glass In Your Rental Property

Benefits of Installing New Glass In Your Rental Property

Managing a rental property can be a full-time job when you’re looking for new tenants. You have to prepare the units for showings, which includes repairs and maintenance, list your leasing on rental search platforms, and put applicants through processing among other tasks. You also might contact residential and commercial glass replacement companies to touch up your glass.

If you haven’t changed your property glass in a decade or so, it’s a good idea to update them for several reasons, including those below.

Increase property value

Major additions such as all new exterior dual-pane windows, new glass tub and shower enclosures, and new glass kitchen cabinets, can significantly increase your value if you choose to sell or trade your rental property. If touching up your property before showing it to prospective tenants, you can absorb some of the cost into your proposed monthly rent. Your tenants will understand when you’ve replaced old cabinet glass with sturdy, crystal clear panes.

Keep out sound and extreme temperatures

Depending on your property’s location, your tenants might be subjected to loud ambiance. Properties along sound walls, next to freeways, close to downtown areas, or within the heart of a city will greatly benefit from updated, high quality glass. Dual-pane windows with airtight sealing is the best way to give tenants a comfortable indoor experience. 

Attract prospective tenants

With rents typically hitting lower prices during the winter and peaking during the summer, interest in your property could vary. If you’re in an area that’s hard pressed to find tenants because of high competition, new glass can increase interest and make you stand out to people looking for a maintained and appealing property. New glass can also send a signal to more qualified tenants if you’re getting applications from people who don’t meet your income guidelines.

Lower energy bills

Installing quality glass can decrease your energy bills if you’re footing it for your tenants. If your tenants are in charge of energy payments, newer and energy-efficient glass can decrease living costs and make your property more attractive. For the lowest energy bills, install ENERGY STAR certified dual-pane windows and couple them with heat-blocking blinds or curtains.

Add a special touch to your property

If your rental property consists of larger units or is a house, customized glass with different colors and textures can make it that much more special. Vacation rentals will entice people looking for overnight spots that will enhance their experience and provide excellent backdrops for photos, videos, and memories. And if you also live on the property and are leasing out a room or attached building, you’ll also get to enjoy the windows everyday.
