Replacing your windows is just like buying a house. You need to find the ones that suit your needs best. Are you looking to save money on energy bills? Perhaps you’re trying to add more light to your living room?
The right windows will not only provide more safety and security, but they will also make your home quieter, more attractive, and less drafty. Not to mention, replacement windows are also easier to clean than the old storm windows with screens!
If you need help before making this investment, here is everything you should consider before purchasing new windows.
What to Consider When Replacing Windows
- Material – Real wood or vinyl windows? It all comes down to how much maintenance you’re willing to commit to. For example, real wood windows provide timeless beauty, but require more upkeep than vinyl windows.
- Style – Make sure to match the new windows to the current architecture of your home.
- Functionality – Decide how much ventilation you need. For example, a fixed window doesn’t open at all, while a sliding window opens halfway to allow some airflow. A casement window provides maximum airflow.
- Energy-efficiency – Windows that carry the ENERGY STAR label are guaranteed to be the most efficient and typically provide 15 to 40 percent more energy savings than those that meet standard building codes.
- Design details – Replacement windows come in a range of colors and with a variety of hardware finishes, grilles and glass options. They will definitely help bring out the beauty in your home!
- Light – When you get more natural light coming in, it helps with creating an inviting and comfortable living space.
