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 besides the initial cost. Updating to energy-efficient windows can provide significant monthly savings.
If you’re going to need to upgrade your windows in the next several years anyway, it doesn’t make sense to spend money on repairs and then pay for replacement windows a few years later.
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. The best way to get an accurate estimate is to schedule a 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 (and one that can save you money), no matter the age of your current windows.
Can old windows be restored?
Unless they are very badly damaged, old windows can be restored, but it often costs more than it would cost for 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 historical look you want.
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 only a few home improvements that 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.
