Is it cheaper to repair or replace windows?

In some cases, it might be cheaper to repair your windows, but that doesn’t mean it’s the best choice. If your windows are fairly new and energy-efficient and you just need a simple repair, that’s one thing. If, however, your windows are older, there are other costs to consider. Updating to energy-efficient windows can provide significant monthly savings. With energy costs continually increasing, you can save lots of money in the long run by replacing your windows.

If you’re needing to update your windows in the next several years anyway, it doesn’t make sense to spend money on repairs but also pay for replacement windows later on. Replacing your windows now is a better investment.

What is the average cost to replace windows?

There are many factors to consider related to replacement window cost, and the cost of new windows varies dramatically based on the style and features of the windows you choose. Since our windows are custom fitted and made locally, the best way to get an accurate cost assessment is by scheduling a free consultation.

How often should windows be replaced?

Most industry experts agree that windows should be replaced every 15 to 20 years. However, if your current windows aren’t energy efficient, window replacement is a good idea. It can save you lots of money in the long run, no matter the age of your current windows.

Can old windows be restored?

Unless they are damaged beyond repair, old windows can be restored, however, it often costs more than it would to replace them with new ones. Homeowners who are restoring a historic home may want to keep the windows, but new replacement windows are also available that can give you the historic look you want. That's because we custom fit our windows to match all types of shapes and sizes. Our various colors, textures, styles, and grid patters also enable you to match your previous look if desired.

Are window replacements a good investment?

Yes! Quality replacement windows add value, curb appeal, security, and energy efficiency to your home. They are one of the few home improvements that can start to pay you back right away with lower energy bills. You’ll also enjoy the benefit of being able to keep your house comfortable in any weather without putting extra stress on your HVAC system. This is because our Euro-Vinyl windows are sealed air tight and help block harmful UV rays.
