Window replacement is one of the best ways to increase the value of your home, increase energy efficiency, and reduce heating / cooling costs. According to Energy Star, window replacement can save hundreds of dollars per year.
When considering window replacement, here are some of the most common questions and answers that we get.
While window replacement can happen year-round, it is often done between March – October. In general, warm weather is preferred when replacing multiple windows. This will prevent prolonged cold drafts from entering your home. Ultimately, the decision comes down to the time of year that is most convenient for you.
Ultimately the decision to replace one single window, a room of windows, or a whole home of windows comes down to:
Replacing a single window or a room of windows is ideal in window sets of 3-8 or more as this minimizes labor costs. Replacing a home full of houses is ideal for maximizing your return on investment and curb appeal.
The most important thing when it comes the day of window installation, is to be available at the timeframe that you and the contractor agreed upon. Otherwise, we recommend:
Finding a playdate for your children, pets, or significant other! Keep anyone who is not essential away from the work area for both the safety of our installation crew as well as your family. It’s not uncommon to visit a neighbor for a day or even set up a movie marathon in the basement.
While any construction job is bound to have a bit of noise and dust, we at Window Concepts are professional installers who remove the old windows, frame, and debris. We prepare the opening of the new windows including any added structure or insulation. Each of these steps can stir up some dust, but we always leave the house clean and free from any left-over debris, tools, or any other job-related mess.
In nearly all cases it is more economical to hire a professional to replace windows because we provide flexible financing options for a low monthly payment, robust window warranties, and rapid concept to install speeds.
If your window is hard to open or close, stuck, not functioning, hazy, broken, has condensation present, or is drafty, the answer is yes. You need a new window.
