East End Glass Shop specializes in both windshield repair in Richmond, VA and also any of your glass needs. We want you have all the information possible when deciding whether or not you should replace your home’s windows. Here are 3 things to look for when deciding on window replacement.
1. Are Your Windows Damaged?
This may seem like the obvious answer, but a lot of home owners choose to ignore this issue if the windows are just mildly damaged. If they are warped, it is futile to attempt in repair. If the windows are drafty, hard to open, hard to close, or refuse to stay in place, then it’s time to replace. Investing in new, high quality windows will also last you a long time in the long run. Some experts say that if they are properly maintained, they can last longer than 20 years.
2. Are They Energy Efficient?
If your windows are drafty, then they can greatly increase your energy bill. Replacing your old windows can reduce your energy bill by 10%-20%. You’ll save money and can reduce your home’s carbon footprint! Of course each energy saving window is not made the same and universal for every home. Be sure to consult with your salesperson on what’s the best option for your home.
3. Are You Remodeling?
Replacing old windows can completely transform your home. Old, shabby windows can make your house look worn, so look to see whether or not the material around the window is warping. You also may want to consider changing the window shape in your home to let in more or less light. This can completely change your space and would give your home a dramatic new look.
