Replacing your new windows will instantly make your home look nicer. Getting multipane windows in place of your old single-pane units will reduce your heating and cooling costs. Moreover, if you’re thinking of selling your home in the future, this project is a great way to increase your property’s value.
Here’s a simple guide to choosing replacement windows for your home.
How Many Windows Are You Replacing?
The cost of your project hugely depends on how many windows you are replacing. Are you only replacing one window or are you thinking of replacing all the units in your home? Don’t forget to ask your contractor about deals or discounts if you’re getting numerous windows.
Factors You Need to Consider
Style – Whether you’re getting new windows or exterior doors, one important factor you should consider is style. Windows come in a wide range of styles that can affect installation costs.
Appearance – Can you picture how your new windows will look in your home? Which hardware do you think fits best in them? If you’re not trying to matching existing windows colors, go for a low-maintenance exterior, preferably a material that doesn’t ever require repainting.
Panes – Multipane windows are significantly more energy-efficient than single-pane ones. These units have gas fills that help in keeping your home comfortable. Also, glass with a Low-E coating is ideal if you want to save on energy costs.
Material – Some of today’s most popular materials include vinyl, wood, aluminum and fiberglass. Before selecting a material, consider both its pros and cons.
Warranty – Windows usually come with a warranty that protects you in case there are problems with the unit. Read the product’s warranty and determine what it does and doesn’t cover.
