Do your windows still enhance the facade of your house?

Do they still do their part in shielding your home from the elements? Do they help keep your energy bills low? Are they still in good condition? If you answered ‘no’ to any of these questions, you may want to consider replacing them.

Wish List -  Having a replacement window installed can be a wise idea especially of your original framing is still in good shape. To get an idea if your frames are still in good condition, try poking a screwdriver into your sills to see if they are already starting to rot. If everything goes fine, then you can go shopping for windows that fit your style and your budget.

Tips in Choosing the Best Replacement Windows - Now that you have finally decided to replace your windows, here are some tips that can help you make all the right decisions.

Consider the style of your home - Choose a replacement window that best reflects the style of your home. As such, you should choose one that has an antique quality about it if you live in an older home. In the same manner, choose a more modern style if you have a newer home.
Consider your needs. Your choice of replacement windows should depend on what you need. As such, you should have a double-hung or a casement window installed if you require good ventilation. If you want to reduce your energy costs, consider using energy-efficient windows. If you merely want to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home by highlighting panoramic views, use picture windows instead. You get the idea.
Choose one that has been certified for quality. Replacement windows that are certified by a number of organizations generally last longer than those that are not so always look for the seal of quality. You’ll be better off if you do.
Get professional help. For best results, consider having your replacement windows installed by a professional. Compare home window prices and costs and make sure you hire a credible window installer, do the necessary research before signing any contracts. It also helps if your chosen installer has been certified by Angie’s List, an online membership site that compiles valid consumer reviews of local service companies and contractors across the US.
