Tips for New Windows
Should you repair your window or do you need to replace it? This question can be hard to answer for homeowners. Here are a few signs that indicate you’re probably better off replacing your window:
- You are having difficulty in lifting, swinging or sliding the window
- The window has rotted or damaged parts
- The glass collects too much condensation between panes
- Your window can’t withstand storms or extreme weather conditions
If you observe most of the above-mentioned issues on your windows, then it’s time to invest in window replacement. Here are some tips to help you through the process:
- Choose energy-efficient windows- Energy-efficient windows should be your top choice . When paired with an energy-efficient residential roofing system, these high-quality windows will lead to significant energy savings, while also making your home more comfortable. We recommend choosing vinyl or composite windows.
- Learn about rating terms- Take the time to learn the basics about NFRC, SHG, U-Value, and ENERGY STAR ratings. These ratings give you a good idea about the quality of the windows.
- Consult a trusted contractor- A reliable window replacement contractor can offer valuable guidance throughout the process, helping you choose high-quality, energy-efficient windows that are a good fit for your home and local climate, and ensuring a proper installation.
