Replacing windows in your home can be an expensive and time-consuming process, but at some point, the benefits may outweigh the costs. There are many things to consider before you replace windows including budget, warranties, and aesthetics. In this blog, we’ll cover some common situations where replacing windows makes sense.
Age & Functionality
In general, it doesn’t make sense to replace windows unless they’re old or don’t do their job properly. If you’re constantly needing to prop open a window because it won’t stay open or it has developed gaps between the frame and wall, then it’s time to consider replacing that option. If a window is old or inefficient you should also consider replacing it.
In addition to age and functionality, you’ll also want to consider the efficiency of the windows in your home. Old, drafty windows are uncomfortable and tend to let more cold air into the home than they should. Newer more efficient windows can help reduce energy impacts while increasing your ability to use natural light in your home. In addition, if you have a history of high electricity bills or live in an area with extremely cold winters then you may want to consider upgrading your windows for improved efficiency and comfort.
If you’re noticing that your windows are deteriorating or that they don’t provide adequate protection from the elements, it’s time to make the decision to replace them. Depending on your living situation and where you live, there may also be a benefit to replace windows as part of a larger home improvement project. For example, if you need to replace an entire side of your home due to water damage then a window replacement can help with some of the new construction costs and give you added functionality once that portion is finished.
