Replacement windows can be a great all around investment. Not only do they add aesthetic appeal to your home’s exterior, but new windows are also a great way to make your home more energy efficient. If you’ve been considering replacement windows for your home (or part of your home), we invite you to take a look at the gallery of images we have collected, each of which represents replacement windows installed by the professionals at Advanced Exteriors.
It can be hard to know, particularly when windows aren’t obviously broken, when to replace your home’s windows. As a general rule, if your windows are more than 15 years old – or you suspect they might be – we recommend checking all of your windows for functionality. As you begin to evaluate the condition of your current windows, ask yourself a few questions. Do your windows still open and close with ease? Do you regularly find signs of moisture on the interior window pane? Do you notice any gaps around the window frame or sash that prevent the window from obtaining a tight seal? If you are noticing any of these issues, it’s definitely time to consider replacement windows for your home, as your existing windows are no longer providing you with the necessary level of protection.
But you don’t necessarily need to wait until your windows are showing significant signs of deterioration to replace your old windows with new windows. Many homeowners opt to replace their windows to enhance energy efficiency or upgrade their home’s overall aesthetic. Here are some factors to consider as your evaluate whether it’s time to replace your windows.
Are your existing windows still single pane glass?
- Many older homes still have original windows with single pane glass, and despite your best efforts, these windows cannot and will not ever be energy efficient. Multi-pane replacement windows are the modern standard and are known to significantly improve energy efficiency and thereby save you money on your heating and cooling bills.
Does your home still have storm windows?
- Not only are storm windows not particularly appealing to look at, they also create a burdensome and time consuming hassle twice a year as they need to be installed and removed as weather changes. Replacement windows are much more energy efficient and feature multiple panes for superior protection from the elements at both temperature extremes as well as integrated screens which make it easy to open windows during the transitional seasons to allow for natural airflow throughout your home.
Are your windows difficult to clean?
- Everyone knows that cleaning old windows is a chore. With new replacement windows, cleaning windows is a much simpler task, as the exterior glass can be cleaned from the inside thanks to tilt-in sash technology and our EZ Clean glass technology.
