Window replacement can be one of the smartest investments you can make when it comes to improving the value and energy efficiency of your home. This is one action that can keep you more comfortable in winter, make your home more valuable and allow you to save on utility bills, all at the same time. They can also make you feel better about your house, especially if you choose a style of windows that you really like. Replacing windows, however, can be a costly and time-consuming endeavor, so you want to be sure you know exactly what you’re getting into before you begin.
Upgrading your windows can become more costly, when you choose argon filled glass, or energy-efficient glass with triple pane. 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.
Don’t listen to the hype of aggressive salespeople who want you to buy their product on the spot. Make sure that you have at least three estimates before deciding, so that you won’t be talked into anything without having time to think and compare. Remember that you are in charge, and that the decision is yours. When you have several estimates you will be able to think things through, and make the best conclusion. A bunch of bids is for comparing prices, but the determining factor should come down to the reputation of the company.
Maybe they aren’t noticed that much, but the basement windows should be replaced at the same time as all the rest. Your basement might be finished, or used for laundry, or unfinished and used only for storage, it doesn’t really matter. The basement is no different from any other part of the house, in needing energy-efficient windows that are also attractive and secure. For one thing, if the windows in the basement are in poor condition, it can be a place for drafts to get in and make the whole house colder. Basement windows give easy access to a house, especially if they are of inferior quality. Anything that raises the value of your house is good, and that is what good quality windows do.
