Looking Beyond the Basics: The Finer Details of Window Replacement

Mar 24, 2015

The windows are some of the most important features of your home. They not only help bring in natural light, they also provide you with beautiful outdoor views – not to mention give you a chance to bring fresh air into the house. The quality of your windows is important as well. Poor windows are going to leak air, resulting in an uncomfortable home and high energy bills. Because of this, you need to pay attention to what kind of windows you install if you are replacing old windows in Kansas City. The following are a few things to consider.

First of all, don’t be fooled when you see a window advertised for a low price. This price is usually the base cost, which refers to the size and color. Add-ons will cost you extra but are often worth it, such as dual-pane options, low-conductance spacers, low-E coatings and more. Before you reconsider replacing your old windows, think about investing a little extra into more energy efficient models. Yes, these are more expensive than typical models, but they can help save you money in the long run by helping you reduce your monthly heating and cooling bills.

You’ll also have a number of materials to choose from, such as wood, fiberglass, vinyl and extruded metal, to name a few. Vinyl is a great choice because it’s not only affordable, it’s very energy efficient as long as it’s installed properly. Fiberglass is a great option as well due to its superior durability, strength, low-thermal conductivity and ability to be repainted – although it is more expensive.
