Replacing your windows can seem like a daunting task, but with a little information – and the right window replacement company – it can be simple and stress-free. If you need window replacement in MD, DC, or Northern VA, Quality Window & Door is the only name you need to know!
First things first – what are the benefits of window replacement? Why can’t you simply repair your windows and be on your way? For starters, some damage may be too extensive and require completely new windows rather than a repair. Secondly, your windows may have simply reached the end of their lifespan. Unfortunately, windows don’t last forever (though top-quality windows installed correctly can last for a long time, sometimes 50 years or more!), and as your windows age their reliability starts declining, so you can experience anything from uncomfortable drafts to more costly repairs to higher monthly energy bills.
Those reasons aside, what are some other benefits of window replacement? Window replacement offers a number of different benefits, including:
Improved Home Energy Efficiency: Nobody likes to see their energy bills steadily rising, but if you have old, drafty windows, your home just won’t be as energy efficient as you’d like. Windows are one of the biggest sources of energy loss in homes – in fact, you can save up to 20 percent on your utility bills with replacement windows! Replacements in older homes with single-pane glass windows will gain the most savings.
Easier Maintenance: Many people opt for window replacement for maintenance purposes, and there are a lot of windows designed for simple cleaning. Many manufacturers today also offer low-maintenance or maintenance-free windows of varying materials – vinyl, fiberglass, aluminum clad, and composite compounds.
More Comfortable Home Interior: If your windows are drafty, you know how uncomfortable it can be! Window replacement can help eliminate cold drafts and hot spots. Many models are actually designed with reflective properties to help keep radiant heat inside your house in the winter and outside in the summer.
Noise Reduction: Double- and triple-pane glass, Low-E coating, and laminated glass can significantly reduce sound transmission and create a much quieter home interior. This is critical for homes in big cities or high-traffic areas like Washington, DC, Bethesda, Rockville, etc.
Better Security & Safety: Modern windows today have all kinds of features that ensure enhanced safety and security, from removable sashes and easy tilt latches, to advanced lock systems and tempered or safety glass. Whatever your security needs, window replacement can give you complete peace of mind.
Higher Home Resale Value: New windows can boost the curb appeal of your home and raise its market value. You can expect to recoup more than 70 percent of the cost of a mid-range window replacement project (depending on the material used).
Higher Durability: The highest quality windows, built with the latest advances in technology and finest materials, are designed to give you many years of reliable performance. In fact, a lot of manufacturers offer limited lifetime warranties.
Exceptional Beauty: Homeowners sometimes replace their windows to better match their personal tastes and their home’s overall architecture. Enhanced home interiors and exteriors are one of the biggest benefits of window replacement – some styles of windows (like bay, bow, geometric, and transom) are chosen purely for aesthetic purposes and can add unique beauty to your home!
