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. What other home improvement project can make your home look great, feel warmer and also make it more energy efficient all at the same time? Replacement windows also adds a new sparkle to your home, which you’ll notice every time you look out one of your new windows! 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.
Of course, you may want to upgrade your windows to something that’s very energy-efficient, like triple pane glass or windows that have argon gas, which will drive up the cost. But if the window frames are old and perhaps damaged, you should really take the plunge and replace everything, as it won’t do you much good to have brand new windows if there are cracks in the frames.
There are a number of windows that are energy efficient and will qualify you for a tax credit. In order to receive this offer, you need to research your local tax laws and find out which windows are allowed; plus you will be saving with the energy efficiency of the product. The Energy Star program sanctions windows here in the U.S. As long as you are enhancing your home in this way, you may as well check into tax credits for other things like insulation and more efficient doors. This may relieve a little pressure off your monthly household expenses and you taxes as well.
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. Some contractors, for example, will offer more extensive warranties than others. You have to be sure to read all the fine print with such a warranty, and if you don’t understand something, ask for clarification. 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.
Adding value to your home is one of the best reasons for replacing all of your house’s windows. Replacing windows gives your house a new look, just like when you paint your entire house. Anything that can help with rising energy costs, even replacing windows, is a smart thing to do. With the right information you will be able to make the best choice when it comes to window replacements.
