Replacing the windows in your home is a major home improvement project. However, this task will offer enormous benefits in home value and energy savings. Is it time for you to upgrade your windows? If so, trust EC Roofing to help with your window installation.
How to Know that You Need Window Replacement
The windows that were originally installed in your home will not last forever. In fact, the older your home is, the more likely it is that you will need new windows installed. Look for the following signs that you may need to schedule an assessment of your windows:
- Older home and cold panes
- Drafts around window frames
- High energy bills
- Rotting frames
- Repairs become too common or costly
First, the age of the home plays a significant role in whether you need window replacement. Builders frequently used single-pane windows in older homes. However, these windows can increase your heating and cooling bills. If your home is several years old and your panes feel cold during the winter, you likely have single-pane windows that need replacement.
Second, just as the panes can let in the cold, the frames can also allow drafts to flow through. Drafty frames can raise your energy bills. In the summer, cooled air escapes your home. But in the winter, the cold air from outside sneaks in. Putting off replacing drafty windows will cost you more money over time because you will need to pay more to keep your home a comfortable temperature. Upgrading to new windows will help reduce your heating and cooling costs, and overall, is a significant upgrade for your home.
Sometimes, you can schedule repairs to close gaps around windows. However, over time, your windows will continue to wear down, requiring more frequent repairs. In fact, you may spend less by getting the windows replaced instead of frequent repairs.
Window Installation: Vinyl Frames Are Durable & Low Maintenance
At EC Roofing, our preferred window frame option is vinyl. This type of frame never needs painting, does not rot, is affordable, and will not fade. In fact, these benefits are why vinyl windows are one of the most popular options for window replacement.
When you upgrade your windows, you will seal off leaky frames, stop the cold entering through a single-pane, and improve the look of your home. Your energy bills should decrease. Plus, you won’t need to maintain vinyl windows. Therefore, installing new windows will help you save money over the years. While vinyl windows resist rot and corrosion, wooden window frames will rot over time, especially if you do not regularly care for them by repainting and weatherproofing them. Rotting frames let air into your home from outside and can cause a drop in home values.
