At first glance, all windows look the same. But upon closer inspection and deep investigation, you’d realize that they’re more different than alike. If you’re in the market to replace your current ones, you must exercise your due diligence to choose the right products for your home.
To help you narrow down your options, Valiant Home Remodelers wants to share with you the things you should consider when it comes to window replacement:
Selecting the right window style helps increase your home’s curb appeal, capture panoramic views, promote natural ventilation, and boost daylighting. Each type of unit is designed for a particular purpose and has a unique set of upsides and downsides. In most cases, one window style doesn’t apply to your entire home since each room has different needs. Some can’t be used for egress, while others provide additional floor space. Needless to say, you should make your decision on a room-by-room basis.
The glass technology used in replacement windows determines their energy performance. They don’t just turn nature into artwork. They keep out unwanted solar heat, reflect damaging ultraviolet radiation, admit plenty of visible light, and contribute to thermal insulation. Knowing the product’s glazing matters, but also looking for the ENERGY STAR® seal, tells you whether it’s engineered for your local climate or not.
The framing material defines the window’s long-term weathertightness and maintenance needs. Although it occupies just a small portion compared to the glass, it significantly affects energy efficiency. The industry has plenty of material options available, but there’s a reason vinyl is still one of the hottest window trends today.
To get the most value from replacement windows, make sure they’re protected by a frst-rate warranty. It’s your protection against defects, ensuring you won’t pay for repairs to fix premature failures under normal use.
