When Should I Replace My Windows?

It can be a bit difficult to gauge when you need to replace your windows, but there are some reasons why you should consider this. While the look of a home is a great reason for having specific windows, curb appeal is not the only factor, but a compliment to functionality and effectiveness. Here are some of the reasons that you should replace your windows.

Damage

In some cases of damage, replacing a window is the smarter route to go. If there is a minor problem, it can typically be fixed easily, but if there are major damages, it is important to fix. While much damage can most likely be fixed, it is not always recommended to repair, as it can be a wasted project, or can be a bit dangerous.

On a separate note, storm damage, as well as very old windows, should be replaced as soon as possible. On a home that is considered a historic building, it can be very beneficial to get new windows, as you could be losing energy, as well as curb appeal, due to dated windows. Especially in the case of wanting to sell your home, it is important to boost that home value regarding windows.

Energy

In regard to energy, drafty windows can allow for 10-25% higher costs than new windows. This means that installing new windows can help to reduce the costs of living in your home by an immense amount.

Aesthetic

The addition of new windows to a home can really transform the look of any home. While the aesthetic can be nice, this also brings along some new benefits, as the light can be of better quality. Increased sunlight can have a lot of health benefits, especially related to the emotional well-being of any person.

Window Transformation In New England

Our team recently finished up an amazing window transformation of a home in New England. The contractors on the project truly specialized in installing these gorgeous bay windows to the exterior/interior of the home. They installed one style of window, which was the Harvey Building Products Bay window. This was created with the utmost of craftsmanship, as well as the highest quality of products. Harvey Building Products has an amazing track record, as they have been selling replacement windows, alongside other elements of a home, such as doors, since 1960. We entrusted this brand of windows for many reasons. While they serve both homeowners, and contractors, such as ourselves, they provide a consistency that is hard to beat. With over 50 years of experience, Harvey BP was the perfect person for the job, and they really did the incredible job that we had expected.

From the exterior of the home, bay windows really give an additional curb appeal unlike any other. While a bay window does look fantastic, these specific windows will have results that last a very long time. Because Harvey Building Products started on the East Coast, their products are built to withstand all elements. This is the perfect product to use in New England, as there are harsh winters and hot/humid summers. This makes for the perfectly comfortable, secure and energy efficient window. While a window is supposed to keep out the cold in the winter and keep the cold in, in the summer, these windows help by creating a true barrier between your home and the outside. This can help to cut down on many costs, including heat, AC and energy.
