Windows affect your home’s appeal, comfort, safety and energy efficiency. Failing to replace damaged or deteriorating units will lead to discomfort, lower curb appeal and increased utility costs. When the need for replacement windows arises, be sure to work with a reliable professional.
Here are essential things to consider before having your windows replaced.
It pays to invest in windows that can help reduce your heating and cooling costs. Look for ENERGY STAR® certified products like Renewal by Andersen® window replacement units. These windows are not only durable but also energy-efficient. They usually include at least two panes of glass with insulative gas in between. Low-emissivity coatings are another common feature these products have.
The frame material of your new windows plays a significant role in their longevity and efficiency. While wood is a popular choice, it’s prone to moisture-related damage and needs frequent upkeep. Aluminum may come at a lower cost, but it’s not as durable and energy-efficient as other options.
At Renewal by Andersen of Cape Cod, our frames are made from our exclusive Fibrex® material. It resembles the look of natural wood and has twice the strength of vinyl. This material is so strong that it can be made into slimmer frames, giving you more glass area and expansive outdoor views.
Do you have windows that are difficult to open and close or have faulty hardware? Don’t wait too long before having them replaced because they put the safety of your home at risk. Select windows with excellent hardware and lock technology. It’s also a good idea to replace single-hung windows with double-hung ones for the safety of your kids.
