Improve the appearance of your home
Nothing improves the appearance of an older home like new windows. Whether you’re planning to sell your home, or are just sprucing up the place, you can be confident knowing that you’re improving the appearance and value of your home, and the neighborhood. In addition to improving your home’s appearance, replacing your old windows can also reduce your heating and cooling costs. Much energy is lost by single-paned windows through the glass and through air leaks around loose-fitting components. Just run the back of your hand around a window on a cold and windy day – you can feel the cool air movement. Stop that air flow, and your home will be more comfortable and energy efficient. The best replacement windows will include features such as double thermal pane with argon between the layers, heat reflective or Low-E coatings. This can substantially reduce your heating/cooling bill. Look for the Energy Star logo. Vinyl replacement windows are the most popular choice. Vinyl is water-proof, color-fast, and never needs painting. Vinyl windows are also the least expensive. In addition to the cost savings, new windows are easier to maintain. Modern windows can be cleaned from inside the home – much safer and more convenient, especially for upstairs windows. And clean windows enhance the view of the outdoors and brighten the indoor space.
Be creative with replacement windows
New windows offer you the opportunity to be creative – to completely change the look of your house. Take a look at such possibilities as bay or bow windows. Designer frosted glass can give your home a different look.
