Have you felt your windows becoming increasingly drafty lately? Drafty windows are the first sign that you need your windows replaced. The window replacement process can be overwhelming at times. Here are our expert tips for choosing window replacements to make the process smoother.
Examine the State of Your Current Windows
First, examine each window. Make sure you are noting which windows are drafty, cracked, worn, or poorly sealed. After you have examined the windows, you can then decide which ones need to be fully replaced. Then, determine your budget, stylistic needs, and other requirements for your new windows.
Select a Style
By selecting a certain style early on, you won’t waste time looking at others. The most common styles to choose from are double-hung windows, casement windows, and sliders. These styles each affect your curb appeal in different ways. Once you have decided on the style you are going for, you can boil down your options.
The window material can enhance the aesthetics of your home. It will also determine if you have to repaint or apply a coating for future touchups. A couple of popular options for windows are wood, aluminum, fiberglass, and vinyl. Similar to the style of your windows, the different materials will vary with the look of your home.
The glass type of your windows may seem simple but there are many factors to think about. Some factors to consider are the shading of the glass, the ability to hold heat, and also the way the glass will reflect the sun. Most glass will have some sort of upgrade options where you can cover the windows with protectants and materials to help windows last for the long haul.
