KNOWING WHEN TO REPLACE YOUR WINDOWS
A window replacements project can reduce your homes energy costs, improve your comfort level & enhance the overall appearance and curb appeal of your home. However, there are a number of factors to weigh before you purchase new windows. Consider the following:
Appearance: The style of your home will determine the type of window best for you . This will include frame options & choices including color, as well as tint & glazing.
Fit: As windows age, their components wear & deteriorate, causing them to shrink & become brittle. The more compromised the fit, the more air filtration will seep unto your home affecting your comfort & energy costs.
Frame: Frame materials deteriorate with age becoming corroded& eventually rotting. This deterioration beyond surface will require window replacement to protect you & your home from the elements.
Glazings: The solar heat gain through your windows can result in rising energy costs during both heating & cooling seasons. Glazing currently available in the new windows will reduce 80% solar heat gain, while allowing 90% of the suns rays it pass through, making both heating & cooling of the home more energy efficient.
Operability: Operability of older windows is jeopardized by time. Aging components often swell, warp & bind. The cost of replacing old parts, & the inconvenience of dealing with such, make replacement windows a smart and cost effective choice.
