6. Window Replacement: Top Home Improvement Projects

Return on Investment: 67.5 percent to 72.6 percent. Returns for different types of windows range from a low of 67.5 percent for upscale wood windows to a high 72.6 percent for upscale vinyl windows. Choosing between vinyl and wood? Go with whichever is most popular on your street. The energy-savings payback on new windows isn't as clear, unless you're swapping old, single-pane windows for energy efficient multi-pane windows. Buy Energy Star windows that are right for your climate to maximize energy savings, then file for the 10 percent federal tax credit (up to $200) to get back some of your remodeling expenses.
