4 Factors to Consider When Choosing Replacement Windows
There are several benefits to replacing your old windows, but be sure you’re choosing the right windows for your home. Take time to look at the following factors before you finalize your replacement window choice.
Layout – Before choosing the style and color of your windows, consider your home’s layout. Each room in your home has its own set of requirements, which dictates which window style is best for each room. Knowing these requirements will help you make informed decisions throughout the project. Choosing similar or the same window styles for each room may be a missed opportunity to improve your home’s functionality. For example, bay windows can add a significant amount of usable space to a room without taking up floor space, but aren’t appropriate in all rooms.
Energy efficiency – With today’s rising energy costs, energy efficiency has become more of a necessity than a luxury, so investing in energy-efficient replacement windows is a must. Our Alside replacement windows feature dual-pane, low-emissivity (Low-E) glass. The space between these panels work as insulation, similar to vacuum flasks, separated by Intercept® and ThermD™ spacers. Combined with insulated window frames and sashes, plus an optional argon gas filler, our Alside replacement windows help reduce thermal transfer, resulting in reduced indoor heating and cooling requirements, meaning significant energy savings for you.
Looks – Windows are a significant element of your home’s overall beauty; in fact, the right choice of window finish can significantly boost your curb appeal. That’s why our FrameWorks® window frames and sashes are available in nine different exterior colors, from classic white to visually exciting colors like English Red and Forest Green. They also come in six different interior wood grain finishes and two neutral colors, because your home deserves to look good inside as well as out.
Maintenance – Window cleaning is a time-consuming chore. If you factor in having to climb a ladder to clean upper story windows, the chore becomes a dangerous one. Choosing low-maintenance replacement windows eliminates the risk and makes your window upkeep easier. Our FrameWorks frames and sashes require little maintenance, can be cleaned with a damp cloth, and don’t need scraping and repainting. Plus operable windows such as double-hung windows can be tilted in for convenient and safe indoor cleaning.
