Questions to Ask Before Installing Replacement Windows

replacement windowsHave you been thinking about hiring a home and auto glass specialist to install replacement windows in your house? There are a number of great benefits you can expect after replacing windows. These include lower energy bills, simpler cleaning, and the elimination of drafts. It’s important to keep in mind, however, that completely replacing your windows may not be the best option for you and your home. Here are four questions you can ask yourself to determine if it’s time for replacement windows.

1. What are your savings expectations?

Installing new windows is a great way to make your home more energy efficient. Older windows can be the cause of unwanted drafts, which alter the temperature inside your house. While replacement windows will likely lower your energy bills, the savings will not completely negate the expense. Keep your finances in mind before making your final decision.

2. Can your windows be repaired?

Replacing older windows is not always necessary. In many cases, it can be just as effective to repair them. Auto windshield and glass repair specialists can examine the condition of your windows. Then we’ll help you determine if repair is possible and/or worth the expense.

3. Is a partial replacement satisfactory?

Replacement and repair are not the only two options. You should also ask your residential and auto glass specialist about partial window replacement. In some cases, it’s possible to replace the glass insert, while keeping the current trim in place. This can be just as effective but will often cost less than fully replacing the window units in your home.
