When considering the next upgrade to your home, it won’t take long to find that replacement windows offer a lot of benefits and advantages. Contractors and real estate agents agree upgraded windows offer a lot in way of enhanced curb appeal, as well as improved functionality for the home.
Old, worn out windows may be causing you to deal with cold, drafty rooms, condensation and even ice inside the window, as well as the possible growth of mold and mildew. They may also be costing you a lot of money on excessive energy loss in both the winter and summer.
When deciding if replacement windows are right for you, be sure to consider a few important factors.
Types of Windows:
Windows come several different types. Casements, double-hungs, and EVS’s all function differently and offer unique advantages. By considering what you hope to gain from new windows and what is most important to you and your family, you can narrow this list down to choose the best windows for you and your family.
With different materials used in the construction of the window, different glass pack options and spacer materials, replacement windows can be offered in hundreds of different configurations, with something for everyone. A lifetime warrantied window, with energy star rated performance can be a great investment in your home, and even pay for themselves.
Number of Windows:
The total number of windows in your home can add up quickly, and replacing an entire home of windows at once can seem daunting. Depending on you and your home, it may make sense to consider a phased install. Focusing on one level of the home, or maybe the bedrooms first, you can break a large project into smaller, easier to handle chunks.
Without question, replacing your old windows is a great way to increase curb appeal, save money on today’s rising energy cost, and make your home more enjoyable. Talk to a specialist today to find out what window options best fit you, and even how they can potentially pay for themselves.
