Replacement windows are something you hopefully only deal with once or twice in the lifespan of your home. However, that means replacement windows are a bit of a mystery to many homeowners. Here are a few myths you might hear:
Installing windows takes skill, precision, and a set of special tools. It is not something you want to tackle on your own. One missed measurement and your windows could be useless. It’s best to leave this home improvement to the professionals.
Quality varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, and material to material. Unfortunately, few people know what to look for in quality windows. If you want top-notch products, you need a reputable company you can trust.
Price isn’t everything. You need to look at the energy labels, materials, and styles before deciding on a window that is right for your home.
Many homeowners choose to keep with their current style, but that is not the only option. If you are sick of your double-hung windows, you can replace them with sliders. There are also a variety of material options to choose from.
As long as you choose the right windows, you can get energy savings. Look for an insulating material, argon gas fills, and low-e glass. These three components combine to give you more efficiency than ever.
Good window installers will install replacement windows without damaging any siding, brick, or the foundation. The only time installation can harm the structure of your home is if the foundation is falling apart or rotting. Most companies remove rotted or compromised material and patch everything up before installation.
Cold weather installations can be more difficult, but, professionals can install replacement windows any time of the year. They will take necessary steps to ensure a seamless installation so your home is not exposed to the elements for long.
Many homeowners won’t commit to replacement windows because they can’t afford to do the entire house at once. The good news is…you don’t have to! You can replace only the windows giving you trouble and hold off on the rest until later.
Depending on the number of windows, the actual installation will only take a couple of days. It will take a few weeks for your windows to arrive. But once they do, our team can knock out the job quickly and efficiently.
If you plan to sell your home, replacement windows can provide a great return on your investment. Potential buyers will appreciate the appearance, security, and energy savings of replacement windows.
