Best Practices for Replacing Your Household Windows

Posted March 23, 2021

Thinking about getting new windows but aren't sure where to start? This is a common issue for homeowners because they're typically not just replacing one window - they're replacing many! So what is the best way to tackle a window replacement project? Should you replace all of your windows at once? One at a time? Or somewhere in between?

There is no one right answer for everyone. It all depends on the condition of your windows, what you expect from your project and your budget. In this post, we'll cover the best practices for a smooth and seamless window replacement project.

Determine Which Windows Need Replacing

Ideally, most people would replace all of their windows if their budget allowed. Who wouldn't love all brand new windows and trim? But replacing all your windows probably isn't necessary. Evaluate your windows and identify the ones that need to be replaced. For example, are some windows leaky? Difficult to open or close? No longer fit with your style and decor?

Consider Your Options for Style and Material

Windows can be seen from the inside and outside of the home so they should complement both. A good window installation company will go through all of your options, including double-hung, bay, bow, sliding and casement windows. You can then pick the style that looks great and functions well for your space.

Material also makes a difference. Some of the most popular options include wood, vinyl, aluminum, fiberglass, composite and wood-clad. There are pros and cons to each so you'll need to weigh your options and determine which materials will give you the biggest bang for your dollar.

Be Open to Making the Investment

New windows are not cheap. But rather than thinking of them as being expensive, think of them as an investment. New windows enhance curb appeal, improve efficiency and bring more natural light into the home. No wonder why these furnishings add significant value onto a home!
