Signs that you should consider replacing your windows

If it’s been decades since your windows have been replaced, or if you’ve experienced some rough weather that might have damaged your windows, you’re probably seeing signs that it’s time to start planning for replacement. Obvious signs are warping, cracking and gaps in and around your windows. Another sign you’ll notice during periods of extreme heat or cold is a higher than usual bump in your utility bill. You should also feel more drafts in your home when your windows begin to lose their energy efficiency.

There are also the aesthetic reasons for replacing windows, because, not only are new windows built to be more energy efficient, they’re also more modern and attractive, which is another popular reason to take on a replacement project.

Replace windows and siding at the same time

If embarking on a siding and window replacement project sounds like too much at one time, consider all the advantages for doing so. An important component of windows is a piece called the capping, which is the framing that directs water away from areas it's not supposed to go.

While a quality window installation expert can work around this issue when siding isn’t being replaced, when the siding and windows are being replaced at the same time, it’s far easier for the workers to install the capping, which results in labor cost reductions.

New windows and the many benefits of installing them in your home

Energy efficiency and aesthetics are the top reasons for replacing windows, but the advantages run deeper than just those two perks:

  • Improved home comfort. New windows are built more solidly than what was produced years ago, which means new windows are going to solve those draftiness issues.
  • Improved energy efficiency. New production processes and materials, such as low-emissivity (Low-E) glass, have substantially improved how windows are made today. You’ll feel it in the air, but you’ll also see it in your lower utility bills.
  • Increased home value. Old, inefficient windows can be a deal-killer in real estate. However, with new windows in your home, you’re going to see improved resale value. By some accounts, the ROI can be a whopping 81 percent.
  • Enhanced home security and safety. From improved childproofing designs to better locks to more damage resistant glass, today’s windows are far more safe and secure than those of yesteryear.
  • Reduced dust and allergens. One of the single most effective ways to reduce allergens in your home is to install new windows. The airtight design in today’s modern windows keeps pollen, spores and dust from entering your home.
  • Noise reduction. Some window manufacturers can guarantee a 90 to 95 percent noise reduction. Advancements in window pane materials have helped manufacturers churn out windows that muffle the outside noise.
  • Enhanced curb appeal. There are a variety of styles being produced today, which means if you have a particular look in mind, you can enhance your curb appeal with a new set of windows.
  • Low-maintenance solutions. Old windows are so difficult to clean that most homeowners either completely neglect this chore or they hire expensive professionals to do it for them. New windows are designed for easy access, which means easy cleaning and maintenance.

The advantages to having new windows installed in your home are numerous, but if you’ve got questions about the installation process, contact us at VIS Exterior and we’ll walk you through how new windows will impact your daily life.
