Window replacement can do wonders for your home, financially, aesthetically and comfort-wise. Replacing your windows is a great idea if you want to increase the market value of your home, lower your energy costs or feel cozier in the cold months. There’s also no better way to brighten and modernize all the rooms of your house. When replacing your windows, there are a few critical points to keep in mind, which we’ll be covering in this article.
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. To do the job right, if the frames are bad, then the whole window should be replaced, even though the price will be considerably more. Another concern that needs to be outlined, unless you are not replacing them, are the frames that surround your windows on your home. Although wood frames are very popular, they also require a great deal of maintenance over the years. If the primary reason you are doing a window replacement project to save money on your heating and cooling, choose vinyl every time. It’s also fairly reasonable compared to other types of frames. Some window frames are aluminum, but these have the drawback of not being very energy efficient unless you choose ones with thermal breaks that keep out air and moisture. The strongest and most energy efficient frames of all are those made from fiberglass, though they can be quite expensive.
Don’t overlook the basement when you are thinking about changing your windows. Many people have an unfinished basement that is only used for storage, but changing the windows is still important. Having secure, attractive and energy-efficient windows in the basement is just as important as anywhere else in the house. Anytime a draft can get into the basement, it will affect the entire house, making it colder. Since security is one of the functions of good windows, it is important to have safe, secure windows. If you are looking for ways to increase the value of your property, then replace all of your windows with high quality ones.
To add value to your house, you can remove your old windows, and install some new, energy-efficient windows. If you want to change the appearance of your home, then give it a new paint job, and change out all of the windows. In these times of escalating fuel bills, it can also reduce your heating costs, which is one of the best reasons to do it. Whether to replace your windows or not, is something that you will be able to decide by following the previous guidelines.
