3 Things to Consider When Choosing Replacement Windows

Window ReplacementHave the windows at your home started to show signs of their age? Are you having trouble opening or closing them? If you answered yes to either of these questions, it’s probably time to consider investing in a window replacement. But if you’re like most homeowners, the thought of embarking on this project may prove daunting. Where should you start?

Lucky for you, the window experts at Dreamstyle Remodeling have put together this handy guide. Here are three things you should consider when choosing replacement windows:

1.   Pick a Style That Meets Your Needs

You have plenty of options when it comes to the style of your new windows, with most contractors installing everything from classic double-hung and sliding windows to more elaborate bay and bow windows. And while the style of your replacement windows will impact the look of your home, you shouldn’t underestimate the role window style plays in keeping your living spaces comfortable.

Choosing double-hung or casement styles during a window replacement will allow you to improve ventilation in your living areas. When opened, both of these styles lead to better-than-average air circulation. Inoperable picture windows, on the other hand, can help improve the energy-efficiency of your home by reducing the opportunity for air leaks.

2.   Choose a Frame Material You Can Keep Up On

Are you comfortable with putting a bit of work into your replacement windows so that they can keep looking their best? Wood windows boast an unquestionably rich and timeless appearance, provided they’re periodically sanded, re-stained, and re-sealed.

But perhaps you don’t want to think about your windows again after installation. If that’s the case, consider investing in vinyl windows with uniform color throughout the frame—they’ll resist fading and hide any scratches or nicks they pick up over the years.

3.   Make Sure the Glass Was Designed for Efficiency

A window replacement is the perfect opportunity to improve the energy efficiency of your home, allowing you to stay comfy indoors without driving your monthly electricity bills through the roof. When looking for energy-efficient replacement windows, pay attention to the glass. Multi-pane construction, especially when coupled with inter-pane argon or krypton gas fills, can reduce temperature transfer. Meanwhile, low-E glass coatings can help reduce carpet and furniture fading by blocking UV light.

Of course, making sure you get the most from your window replacement requires partnering with an experienced contractor. Let Dreamstyle Remodeling help with your project!
