How Does Stained Glass Pay for Itself?

On 10, Feb 2020 | No Comments | In Aggrigate, Stained Glass Design & Styles | By Martin Faith

At Austin Stained Glass we like to tell our client’s that stained glass is more than just a lovely artform–it is valuable as well. In fact, we even say it pays for itself. The reason we say this is because, well, it’s true! Stained glass adds to a house’s value–just like any other home improvement. The benefits of having stained glass on your Austin home are therefore far more than just aesthetic but monetary as well. Find out how stained glass really pays off for homeowners with the good sense to have it installed.

Stained Glass Appraises For More Than You Pay

The price of stained glass varies depending on the size, shape, and detail you want. However, a good range is anywhere from $11-$17 per square foot for standard designs. With very intricate, custom stained glass the cost could go up to $50+. However, most people live in the first range. Of course, this cost is higher than a regular window, curtains or drapes but the impact on the value of your home is high. For example, a stained glass window that costs you $300 can be expected to appraise for 5x-10x more. Not a bad return for something that is also gorgeous and that you get to enjoy throughout the life of your home.

Stained Glass Increases Curb Appeal on Your Austin Home

Stained glass is stunning. This can be agreed upon across the board. This type of display is especially attractive to prospective buyers. When applied on the front-facing window–in sidelights, transoms or front doors, the curb appeal of your home skyrockets–adding value. When you go to sell your home, not only could it fetch a better price at closing but also sell faster. The faster you sell your home the more likely you are to avoid paying two mortgages and losing money. In this way, stained glass pays for itself by saving you money when you sell your home.
