Sugarcreek, Ohio (PRWEB) February 11, 2014

Four of ProVia’s key product lines – entry doors, replacement windows, vinyl and insulated siding – are named “best remodeling projects for maximum return on investment” in the 2014 Cost vs. Value Report released by Hanley Wood’s REMODELING magazine. The report compares construction costs with resale value for 35 of the most popular home improvement projects, with analysis performed in 101 U.S. markets. For the second consecutive year, the Cost vs. Value data show that the value of remodeling is up for all 35 projects included in the survey.

ProVia’s key product lines are among the top performers nationally, as listed below. Percentages shown reflect how much of the total project cost is retained in resale value (“Cost-Value” ratio).

  •     The #1 performer out of the 35 categories is Entry Door Replacement (Steel), at 96.6% Cost-Value. ProVia’s Legacy Steel entry doors are a consistent top sales performer for the company.
  •     Entry Door Replacement (Steel) also tops the list of “High-ROI” projects – where the Cost-Value exceeds 100% in 38 cities
  •     Window Replacement (Vinyl) delivers 78.7% Cost-Value. ProVia’s Aeris and Integra brands of Vinyl Windows are in this category.
  •     Siding Replacement (Vinyl) delivers 78.2% Cost-Value. ProVia has eight vinyl siding product lines that fall into this category.
  •     Siding Replacement (Foam-backed Vinyl) delivers 78.1% Cost-Value. CedarMAX Insulated Siding, from Heartland Siding by ProVia, is in the foam-backed vinyl siding category.
  •     Entry Door Replacement (Fiberglass) delivers 70.8% Cost-Value, up 4.9% from 2013. ProVia’s Signet and Heritage Fiberglass entry doors are increasing in popularity.

“This is very encouraging news, not just for building product manufacturers, but for homeowners and the economy as a whole,” says Phil Wengerd, Vice President of Market Strategies for ProVia. “The market is increasingly valuing these investments, which means homeowners can have confidence that they’ll add a significant amount of value when they put money back into their homes.”
