Choosing the Right Replacement Window and the Right Window Replacement Contractor

 

You’ve heard about the benefits of replacing your home’s windows with newer, more advanced windows that are made with materials that are stronger and designed to be more energy efficient. But will you really see any benefit from an investment in new windows? The short answer is “Yes!”

Here are the top six reasons why replacing your windows is a good investment in the future of your home and family.

  1. SAVE MONEY ON HEATING AND COOLING –

  2. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a typical home can lose 30% or more of the energy it takes to heat and cool the home through inefficient doors and windows. That means almost one-third of the money you spend on energy bills is wasted. Sealing off this energy loss with thermally efficient replacement windows is a long-term way to reduce your monthly utility bills, and to keep energy use at a minimum. Good for the environment, good for your wallet!

  3. BE MORE COMFORTABLE AT HOME –

  4. If you get chilly enough to put on a sweater inside your home during the winter, the culprit may be drafty windows. Do you ever notice your drapes moving gently in the breeze, even though your windows are closed? That is cold air seeping in through your window glass and frame. Do your windows get coated with condensation or fog up? That’s chilly air transferring in through the glass. You won’t have to put up with these uncomfortable conditions once you install energy efficient replacement windows.
  5. MAKE YOUR HOME LOOK BETTER –

  6. New windows offer great options in frame styles and materials that can greatly improve the aesthetic value of your home both inside and out. Most replacement windows also offer more expansive glass areas for a bigger and better view of the world.

    1. EASE OF OPERATION –

    2. Modern windows are much easier to operate than the old wood-frame or aluminum windows that rattled all winter and got stuck in the summer’s humidity. Advanced materials ensure smooth operation for years and years.

  2.  REDUCE MAINTENANCE REQUIREMENTS –

  3. Vinyl, fiberglass or composite frame windows do not need to be scraped and painted every few years. They retain their great looks with just a simple wipe down. Plus, many new windows feature easy-to-use tilt-in frames that make cleaning a snap.

  4. ENHANCE THE VALUE OF YOUR HOME –

  5. Installing quality windows is consistently ranked among the best home improvement values in terms of return on investment. New windows make your home more attractive and appealing.

Replacement windows come in a variety of sizes, shapes and materials and so do the window replacement contractors! How does a homeowner decide not only which replacement windows to choose but also which window replacement contractor to hire?

Many homeowners are concerned with the appearance of their home and recognize that window replacement can add curb appeal to their residence. Adding a bay window or greenhouse window can dramatically change the facade of your home. But that change can be good or bad depending on the quality of the installed work.

Installing replacement windows is not rocket science but choosing the right window replacement contractor can be tricky. The first thing is to decide what type of replacement windows you want. Visit the showroom of a local window replacement contractor. Look at their sample displays. Do you want wood, vinyl, aluminum framed replacement windows? What about clear glass, frosted glass or a low-e coated window?

Every homeowner is concerned about rising heating and air conditioning bills. Installing energy efficient replacement windows and doors can reduce your heating and cooling costs anywhere from 15-40% according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

Consider replacement windows with a low-e coating. This coating will reduce any heat coming through your window without reducing the amount of light. Verify that the replacement windows you choose are Energy Star rated with double or triple glazing and argon or krypton gas between the layers.

Once you’ve decided on the type of window, styles and glass, it’s time to decide on the contractor. Many contractors offer window replacement, but all window replacement companies are not created equal!

Purchasing the best replacement windows is useless if they are installed improperly. Check references. Make sure that the window replacement contractor has insurance as well as a license. Confirm that the replacement window and door manufacturer has certified the contractor. This is important because it may affect your warranty.

Replacing your windows and doors is an investment in your home. Evaluate your options and invest wisely.
