Replacing all of the windows in your home certainly sounds like a big project. In most cases, this is something you'll hire a contractor to do for you, but it can still seem like a lot! Luckily, there are a few tips you can use to simplify the window replacement process while working with a window replacement company.
1. Tell your window replacement contractor what you want, and let them make recommendations
Shopping around for the best windows can take a lot of time and energy, especially when you're not an expert on windows. So, instead of spending countless hours browsing options yourself, have a good conversation with your window replacement contractor. Tell them what you're looking for in terms of appearance, efficiency, and price. Then, let them make a recommendation. They know the window market and what windows are available better than you do, so this approach can save lots of time and headaches.
2. Replace all of your windows at once
Unless some of your windows are basically brand new, there's really no reason to only replace a few of your windows. If you replace only those that are failing now, the rest will likely fail within a couple of years, and then you'll be left to do the whole window replacement process again. It's simpler to just have all your windows replaced at once. This also saves you the headache of having to clarify with the window replacement contractor which windows are staying, and which are going. Plus, new windows are so much more energy-efficient than older ones, and replacing all of your old windows — even those in semi-okay shape — lets you maximize your energy savings.
3. Have your windows replaced in the fall or spring
Unless you urgently need your windows replaced ASAP, try to schedule the service in the fall or spring. This way, your installation is less likely to be rescheduled due to bad weather. And your window replacement company is likely to be less busy than they are in the summer months, which seems to be when most people replace their windows. In the fall, you can sometimes even get discounts on last year's window models, helping you to save a little more.
Window replacement can feel like a big project, but there are definitely ways to keep it simpler. Follow the advice above, and enjoy your new windows with fewer headaches. Reach out to a window replacement service near you to learn more.
