Starting your window replacement project must begin with choosing the best time of year to do it. Many people will start once spring has arrived, leading into summer, so that they have clear and warm days to work. To prevent getting cold at night, choosing a warmer time of the year to work is the best choice. People that live in the equatorial regions, up to about 20° latitude, shouldn’t have to worry about these issues at all.
Even if you only need to replace the glass it can get expensive when you choose to use triple pane glass, or argon gas-filled windows. Changing the glass only, is dependent on good frames, but if the frames are falling apart then you should spend the extra money and replace the whole window, frame and all.
When you are getting bids from individual companies, be prepared for aggressive salespeople who are only concerned about making a sale. Realize that finding the right company is a process, so don’t fall for the best sales pitch without having time to think about it. You can save yourself a lot of grief by taking the time and getting the right people to do your work. When you have several estimates you will be able to think things through, and make the best conclusion. A bunch of bids is for comparing prices, but the determining factor should come down to the reputation of the company.
Warranties are an important consideration when you purchase new windows and/or hire someone to replace them. Some contractors, for example, will offer more extensive warranties than others. If you get a truly comprehensive warranty, it might even extend to the home’s next owner, which could be an attractive feature if you ever want to sell. If you’re buying quality windows or dealing with a contractor that has confidence in his work, you should get a warranty that protects your investment for a long time.
Many people today are anxious to reduce the costs of heating their homes, and replacing your windows with better quality ones can be one of the best ways to accomplish this. You’ll also be improving the atmosphere of your home, and adding another impressive benefit if you ever put it up for sale. This will be an extremely grand addition to your home no matter who does the installation.
