Spring is the perfect time to get replacement windows installed. Enjoy the sunshine and warmth as we approach Memorial Day. Here are four simple ways to choose the perfect replacement windows.
Determine What’s Wrong
At some point, your home’s windows will wear out. Start the process of finding replacement windows by determining what is wrong with your current windows. Troublesome leaks will allow built-up condensation from all those April showers to start infiltrating your home. Excessive water damage will become a nightmare if you don’t address it as soon as you discover it. Look for the source of the leaks in your windows – the sash may be pulling away from the frame. If you are concerned about the overall energy efficiency of your windows because you keep feeling a breeze inside, then it could be another sign that something is wrong and you need to have replacements put in instead.
Select Your Desired Replacements
You’ll have plenty of choices when you start shopping for your replacement windows. No matter which window style you go with, however, you have to be sure that it will suit the exterior of your home as well as the look of your kitchen, dining room, or living room. Some of your replacement windows include the following: casement, picture, bow or bay, and double hung.
Investigate Energy Efficiency
Energy usage is one of the most crucial factors to think about when you are choosing your next set of replacement windows. During spring and summer, you can look forward to having more natural light, so take advantage of that free resource to brighten your kitchen or heat up your family room. Replacement windows will lower U-values will prevent heat escaping on colder nights, and when you have windows with low solar heat gain scores, you’ll know that they’ll help keep the heat in a room under control when it is already hot outside.
Choose the Best Materials
Don’t forget about what the frames for your replacement windows will be made of; wood, aluminum, and vinyl all have their benefits to consider. Weigh the maintenance needs (for instance, vinyl is low-maintenance) and decide whether or not it is something you would prefer. After all, low-maintenance replacement windows will make your life much easier.
