If you’re about to replace your old windows, you might find it reassuring that there are several options. But there are certain considerations that you need to make in order to ensure you’re selecting the right windows for your home.
Frame material can have an impact on the appearance and performance of your window. For example, windows with wooden frames typically have good insulation, but they can also be quite heavy and high-maintenance. Vinyl frames, on the other hand, also have good insulation, but they require less upkeep.
Glazing and Glass
The type of window glaze and glass also has an effect on the insulating capacity of your window. Some glazes and glass can provide better insulation, condensation resistance and light quality. It usually helps to check the labels on windows to get a good picture of their performance capacity.
Ensure that the style of the window matches your siding and other important architectural elements of your home.
Make sure that you’re hiring a qualified and experienced professional to handle the window installation. Proper installation is crucial to the comfort, performance and longevity of your window.
Find out if the windows are easy to clean and maintain. Some materials and features enable more convenient cleaning so you might want to look into this as well.
