Invest in Quality for Your Home

Your house is more than a home; it’s an investment. For most people, it is the single most valuable thing they will ever own, and people take great pride in crafting the perfect space for themselves and their loved ones. Many times, this involves renovations. The home may be starting to age, doesn’t meet the needs of the occupants anymore, or sometimes you just want something new.

When renovating, you want to improve the look, feel, and, most importantly, the value of the home. Investing in high-quality finishing and appliances will go a long way to growing the value of your number one investment. Inexpensive or low-quality appliances may save you a few dollars upfront and look great for a couple of years. However, down the road, they will need to be replaced, often costing more in total than purchasing a higher quality appliance would have initially.

When adding a fireplace to your home it is important to understand that if you need to replace the fireplace later can be difficult to preserve any of the finishing material. So, if you need to replace your fireplace in a few years, depending on the install and finishing, you may need to replace some or all of the stone, tile, or woodwork surrounding it, adding to the cost.

Also, if you’re selling your home, any low-quality appliances will fetch much less as the new owners will likely need to replace them within a few years. Investing in quality appliances for your home makes sure you don’t have to replace them in 3-5 years but also adds genuine value to your home. Quality lasts, quality looks great, and quality builds value. Invest in quality, invest in a Regency. 

Fireplaces Produce the Greatest ROI of any Home Renovation

Fireplaces are the number one most sought after feature when people are looking for a home. As a result, any money spent on adding or upgrading a fireplace in your home is a terrific investment. According to Hanley Wood, a new fireplace can generate up to 91% of its cost in the selling price of a home.

The returns increase even more if you are adding a second fireplace to the home. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), less than 15% of houses in the US have two or more fireplaces and adding one can add up to 12% to the total value of the home.

Regency offers the most comprehensive and most straightforward warranties in the industry. Enjoy a lifetime of comfort with Regency’s Limited Lifetime Warranty on the fireplace. Many manufacturers only offer 5- or 10-year limited warranties or do offer Limited Lifetime Warranties that are so restricted they cover very few things. Not at Regency, we offer the most comprehensive limited lifetime warranty hands-down. Compare for yourself and see, we promise you’ll like what you see.

For Wood Stoves and Inserts that utilize our Triple-burn Eco-Boost technology, we have 10-years of coverage on the Catalytic Combustor – including 100% coverage for the first and 50% for the second (if you even need it).

Regency’s entire warranty package is unmatched throughout the industry. We are proud of the quality and durability of the products we make, and we are willing to stand by them 100%. When you choose a Regency, you choose a lifetime of quality, guaranteed.
