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. 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.
Windows can be as costly as you choose when you upgrade the glass to be either argon gas-filled, or glass with triple panes. Your house won’t look very good, when only replacing the glass if the frames are bad, so in that case you will need to change out the entire window.
Replacing windows is a good job to hire someone else, so you should know what you need to ask them. Some companies that replace windows, as well as individual contractors are perfectly honest, but others aren’t above misleading you when it comes to giving you estimates.
You should be absolutely clear about what is and isn’t included in the price they’ve quoted you. Ask them, for example, if removing the old windows is included or if there’s an additional charge for this. A warranty is something that reputable companies naturally give, and having it written down is just a good business practice. The main reason for always using a company with a good reputation is that it minimizes problems, and what problems there are, can be worked out.
It is important that you also replace the basement windows. Many people have an unfinished basement that is only used for storage, but changing the windows is still important. Whatever reason you have for replacing the windows of your house, the same reason should apply to the basement. The whole house can be made cooler when the basement is cold, which happens more often with poor quality windows. Poor quality windows are easier to break into, therefore they are a security risk. The final reason for replacing your windows with high quality, efficient windows, is that it raises the value of your house. Replacing your windows is not a simple or casual job, so you have to take it seriously and investigate all your options before deciding on the course you want to take. 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. As long as you plan ahead, replacement windows can really add value, warmth and appeal to your home.
