There are many reasons that you may wish to decide to change the windows on your home. Perhaps you want to change the appearance of your home, or maybe you have suffered storm damage and window replacement is necessary. The most common reason for window replacement in a home, however, is for energy saving reasons.
New windows in your home can significantly reduce your power usage because they are designed to be more effective at regulating temperature. Double and triple pane windows are very environmentally friendly and provide many cost savings benefits. Our contractors can easily install new windows throughout your home for these cost savings benefits. Additionally, when you replace the windows in your home, you increase the overall value of your home.
1. Are The Windows Energy Efficient? Energy efficiency takes into consideration the number of panes, the type of materials used for the frames, and the overall installation process. Single pane windows are simply ineffective at this point in time. In the last, single panes were used to be cost-effective. However, double and triple pane windows are what homeowners should seek for the ultimate energy efficiency. Additionally, window frames should be constructed in a manner to prevent leaks by sealing snuggly. Installation should include insulating the frames if necessary and sealing completely to protect the home.
2. What Type Of Locking System Do The Windows Have? Even if your home has a security system, it will always be in your best interest to have windows installed that have good locking systems to prevent entry into your home.
3. What Is The Lifespan Of The Windows? Different types of windows, either because of design, materials or manufacturer, have different lifespans. You will want to ask your contractor how long your windows are expected to remain in good quality before they will need to be replaced again. Windows can have a life span of 5 to 50 years.
4. What Warranties Are Offered? You will want to request what type of warranties is offered by the manufacturer for the windows and their materials and construction. Additionally, you will want to ask your contractor what warranties they offer on workmanship. Make sure to find out if these warranties are transferable if you sell your home.
