If you want to reduce your fuel bills and also make your home look great, window replacement may be the next step for you. If you want to reduce your utility bills, add to your home’s value and be more comfortable, new windows can do all of this for you. There’s also no better way to brighten and modernize all the rooms of your house. Below are some of the main considerations to remember before embarking on your replacement window project.
The cost will change depending on what glass you choose to use, whether you use triple pane glass or glass filled with argon gas. But if the window frames are old and perhaps damaged, you should really take the plunge and replace everything, as it won’t do you much good to have brand new windows if there are cracks in the frames. Remember that you’ll be looking at, or through your windows for years to come, so pick ones you like. You want windows that not only keep you warmer, but that also add to the atmosphere of your home, which means they should compliment the style of your home. There are windows to fit every possible preference and style -for instance, if your home is a restored farmhouse filled with antiques, you’d naturally want to go with a window design from the same period as your home and furnishings. If your home is contemporary, though, you’d obviously be better off with modern style windows. When your windows and everything else goes well together, this will also make your home more attractive to buyers if you ever want to put it up for sale.
Whether you’re buying replacement windows from a home improvement store, or dealing with a local contractor, make sure that you understand the warranty that comes with the windows and/or work. For example, if you’re getting both windows and frames, the length of the warranty may be different for these two components. One type of warranty even remains valid if ownership of the house is transferred, which would be a benefit you could certainly use to help you sell the house. Contractors or stores/companies that are selling you windows should be confident enough in their products or services that they’re willing to give you a generous and extensive warranty in exchange for your business. When you plan to replace the windows in your home, you’re taking on a big and expensive project, so make sure you know exactly what you’re going to be getting. You want to be happy with the appearance of the windows, the energy efficiency and the quality of the labor, if you’re hiring someone to do it. Now that you have a practical list of window replacement tips to consult, you can start making plans to begin this exciting project!
