When I started looking for answers to my questions about being able to fix my old vinyl windows, I was told repeatedly that it would be more cost efficient to replace my windows. It seems that like many other products windows have been improved a lot since my old vinyl windows were made and installed. It surprised me that in the Greensboro, NC area many roofing companies also installed windows. I began by asking each of the companies I talked to about the possibility of being able to fix my old vinyl windows, and ended up asking if they could provide me with an estimate on the cost of energy efficient windows.
While I was checking into the benefits of energy efficient windows as an option, I found that the cost would be approximately the same if I fix my old vinyl windows. However, the replacement windows would make my life a lot easier. Some of the benefits included:
- Double hung windows for easy cleaning: The double hung windows allowed me to fold them down and in for easy cleaning of the inside and outside of the windows. With my old windows I had to lug a ladder around the outside of my house and then balance my cleaning tools while I climbed up and down. This was frustrating, tiring, and dangerous. As a result my windows were probably not kept as clean as I would have liked.
- Less drafts and leaks: If I replace, instead of fix my old vinyl windows, I can get better insulation in both the window itself and around the frame when it is installed. My old windows often let in cold drafts in the winter. New energy efficient window mean no cold air leaking in around the windows in the winter and the heat from my home is not leaking outside either. This should reduce my heating costs and make my home more comfortable throughout the year.
- Variety of styles and sizes: I was amazed at the variety of sizes and styles that I could choose from. I was afraid that the windows I could afford would be just a basic, plain window. To my surprise I found that there was a wide range of windows to pick from. Although in some cases it would raise the cost if the window opening had to be enlarged. The installers I spoke with were very honest and told me that they would have to come to my home for measurements before they could offer a detailed estimate.
After doing my research, I decided that the option to fix my old vinyl windows just wasn’t the right way to go.
