Deciding to repair or to replace windows
When I decided to repair my old windows, I discovered literally hundreds of options from dozens of window manufacturers, but I could not find anything that matched my old windows. There are manufacturers that will build replacement parts to specifications, but the cost is prohibitive. For me, it does not make sense to put good energy efficient panes in window frames that may leak. In reality, 1st and 2nd generation vinyl windows do not all have the strongest frame design, so when the house settles or moves, the windows can become stuck, Not quite as bad as the old wooden windows, but some windows will close, but they no longer lock.
The benefits of energy efficient windows
A new window from the right company means that you will not only enjoy the benefits of energy efficiency, you also will be installing windows that are beautiful and secure. The cost will be a better value than ordering custom parts, and the advanced design will last you for years to come. Most models are guaranteed to resist condensation and moisture. Energy efficiency is a year around benefit. The windows are designed with special coatings to filter certain waves of light, and that is beneficial both in the heat of the summer and the cold of the winter. Additionally, to factor in the value of energy efficient windows, they are exceptionally effective in reducing your heating and cooling costs from the day you install them. In other words, they start returning on your investment from day one. Estimates are that ENERGY STAR® rated windows can save up to 40% in energy costs every year.
Replacing your old vinyl windows with cost efficient windows makes sense from a green standpoint by helping you reduce the carbon footprint from your home. It makes sense from a security standpoint as you will be installing the latest technology in security hardware, with some models having a double locking configuration. Just as importantly, you are adding beauty to your home, as the right windows will compliment and brighten both the interior and exterior of your home. This can be of benefit if you plan to sell your home down the road.
The right installer makes it easier
Finding the right installer and the right window manufacturer is the best of both worlds. It does not make sense to buy top quality windows and then get subpar installation. Fortunately, there are reputable roof installers who are certified installers for some quality window manufacturers. These installers can offer a wide selection of energy efficient windows and doors at a very reasonable price. They even offer special discounts. The fact that they are certified by the manufacturer means that you are double protected because the roofing company has been trained and entrusted by the manufacturer. You will also be protected by both a materials warranty and a workmanship warranty.
