Replacing your old windows won’t only maintain your home’s charm; it can also boost comfort levels and thermal efficiency. Some homeowners, however, stick to traditional wood window replacement rather than trying more durable types of windows. At Kroll Construction, we use vinyl replacement windows for better and longer-lasting window solutions.
Here’s why it’s a smart move to install new windows in your home:
Drafty windows are responsible for about a 10 to 25% increase in your utility bills. That’s because energy transfer due to broken seals and inefficient glass sheets pushes your HVAC system to work twice as hard. To avoid this, replace your windows as soon as you notice a sudden surge in your energy bills.
Unlike wood window replacement, using vinyl is more cost-effective in the long run. This material is durable and can surpass wood windows’ life span, as it doesn’t rot or warp. Plus, it’s easy to maintain, sparing you the hassles that come with this tedious task.
Hinged windows often require enough space to open. This is why window styles with compact design are a smart choice when you have limited room to accommodate casement and other operable windows. For instance, slider windows do not require extra space to operate; they have sashes that slide horizontally along a track.
Another way to optimize space is by adding bay windows. This type of window has a recess in the wall, which you can use to store a few belongings by incorporating built-in shelves.
Broken window frames and glass can compromise your home’s charm. Remember that your windows are highly noticeable features of your living space, which means any irregularity can draw unwanted attention. Get in touch with your local window contractor to guide you through the variety of window styles and colors that match your interior and exterior design.
