How Old Are Your Windows?

By November 25, 2019 No Comments

When something goes awry with broken window glass, fogged glass or a poorly operating window lock, most homeowners seek to repair replace just that window, without realizing that more work may need to be done. While replacing or fixing a single window may seem like the best option at the moment, there may be more benefits to asking about replacing all the windows in your home. Often, one window having issues is a sign of more problems to come if your home is 15 years old or older and still have original features.

Lower your energy costs. 
Replacing a window that has an obvious crack or air leak will help bring your energy costs back down, but if the entire house is fitted with older windows, there is more you can do. Replacing your windows throughout the entire house with new, energy-efficient windows ensures that you won’t spend extra money trying to keep your home comfortable, no matter what the season.

Less stress. 
Imagine if every month, a different window in your home began leaking, letting in cold air or the seals weathered away. Calling your local window company, requesting estimates and having contractors come to your home takes up time and money – so why not do it just once?

Familiar faces.
Isn’t it better to go to the same doctor for every checkup, or the same dentist for every cleaning? Knowing that your window contractor is familiar with your home, the windows you had previously and the ones your house is currently fitted with? Having all of your windows replaced at the same time, by the same company means that your windows will have similar warranties (depending on the styles and brands you choose) and the same installation methods, and there may even have specials and pricing deals to help bring overall costs down. If something happens to go wrong after the installation is complete, you won’t have to track down records and contact information to find out who did the job.
