The first thing you should consider when replacing windows is whether you only need to replace the windows or the frames as well. Only having to replace the glass will make the amout of work, along with the price, much less. As far as jobs go, it will be relatively simple, when you only have to take the old glass, and put in new.
Windows can be as costly as you choose when you upgrade the glass to be either argon gas-filled, or glass with triple panes. 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.
Don’t jump into anything too quickly, because aggressive salespeople will sometimes try anything to get 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. If you get at least three different estimates, you’ll be in a better position to decide who provides the best value. Of course, you have to consider the person or company’s reputation, not only the price.
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. You’ll want to know exactly what type of conditions, and for what length of time, the warranty is good for. 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. The warranty is an important way to protect your investment, so it’s essential that it gives you thorough coverage when it comes to materials and/or workmanship.
