Possibly you have purchased a home that you just fell in love with, but you knew up front that the old, cheap panes were going to need replaced as soon as possible. No matter whether it’s a basement, sliding, custom, or bay window, they all might be costing you thousands of dollars each year from unwanted drafts
Another scenario is the renovation of your home. It makes no sense to install custom cabinets, granite countertops, and top-of-the-line appliances if the windows are bottom shelf and drafty. Adding gorgeous new alternatives will make that kitchen shine, and if you are adding to the east or west side, be sure to investigate windows with a built-in blind.
Cleaning older windows is a headache. Installing new enhancements which tilt in for cleaning will make your life easier, and you won’t mind keeping those sparkling. We all know that shiny windows make the whole house seem brighter and cleaner, but dragging out the ladder and dealing with old portholes is not a task to look forward to annually. If they get cleaned twice a year, that is good! You will be amazed how easy it is to keep newer versions clean. You truly won’t mind running through them all several times a year to let more sunshine in your home.
Unlike some projects, windows don’t have to be done in one session. You may want to do them as you can afford to, in several small groups. Try to remember that the new glass is going to look different, and the window itself may not be the same, either, so if you are doing the street side of the home, you may want to do them all at the same time or within a short period of time for curb appeal.
As with all home maintenance projects, always get the best quality you can with the money you can spare. If you can afford a little better quality, spend the money to do so. Like every component of your home, there are levels of quality, and each one is noticeably an upgrade from the level below it. Do the best you can with what you have. You won’t regret using this philosophy as you work through your windows and various other improvements.
The other part of this equation is the contractor you choose. The highest grade custom window won’t benefit you if it isn’t installed correctly, plumbed to the lines of the house, and insulated and sealed in a manner consistent with good workmanship.
