Why should I replace my windows?
Imagine a world of freedom where you don’t have to install plastic over your drafty windows every fall. Or you don’t need to worry about water leaking through the gaps around those old windows. Or you won’t have problems trying to open and clean those casement or double hung windows. Or you can actually—-gasp!—see out your old windows instead of a green tint. That’s the reality of new windows. When you start noticing the fatal signals of deteriorating windows and window framing, it’s time to research and enjoy the benefits of new windows.
There are three different kinds of window materials to choose from: wood, vinyl, and fiberglass. Vinyl, wood, and fiberglass are the three most common window materials, and all three are energy efficient.
In most cases, your contractor won’t be able to reuse your existing window trim. Talk to your contractor about your choices: can you install trim that matches the color? Is there a way to duplicate your existing trim?
If you love everything about your existing windows, this consideration is going to be incredibly easy; just replace your windows with the same size and type. A different type of window may be the answer to your problem, and you can enjoy all the benefits of replacement windows.
