If this project is going to be large and long in duration, you need to consider what month of the year that you begin to do the work. Many people will start once spring has arrived, leading into summer, so that they have clear and warm days to work. The reason for choosing these particular times of the year is that your house will be open with some of the windows missing as you work. People that live in the equatorial regions, up to about 20° latitude, shouldn’t have to worry about these issues at all.
You first have to choose whether you want to replace the windows yourself or find a company or contractor to do the job; for most people, the latter is recommended. If you make any mistakes, you can do damage to the windows or frames and then it will have cost you rather than saved you money. You should also factor in the amount of time it will take to replace your windows. Choosing the right company or contractor, on the other hand, presents a different set of challenges. For one thing, an honest contractor should be willing to come to your house and give you an initial consultation without charging you for this. Word of mouth is always a good way to find quality help, so you should ask everyone you know to recommend a contractor who’s reasonable and does quality work. Another source of information is online customer reviews, especially if you live in a large enough area that you can find reviews for nearby contractors.
Aggressive companies will try to pressure you into using their company giving you a lot of hype. Don’t make a decision without taking the time to make comparisons and getting emotions out of the choice. You can always call them back later. You will always be in a better position to make the right decision, when you have more information. A bunch of bids is for comparing prices, but the determining factor should come down to the reputation of the company.
If you know what you are doing, there is always the option of doing it yourself, but you will need to shop around for the best deal. Get bids from all of the places that sell windows, and use the information to get the best prices.
This is a good time to look through local publications, and even online, to find out who may be offering a good discount on windows. When you make comparisons, you should consider the warranties they offer and the relative quality of their products, so you’re not comparing apples with oranges. It might be important for you to save money on your replacement windows, but to get a window that will make a difference you also need quality and energy efficiency.
Adding value to your home is one of the best reasons for replacing all of your house’s windows. Like painting your whole house, it’s the kind of project that gives your home a feeling of newness. In these times of escalating fuel bills, it can also reduce your heating costs, which is one of the best reasons to do it. When to replace your house’s windows is a decision you will be able to make once you have all of the correct information.
