What To Consider When Buying New Windows

Are you ready to replace drafty, leaky, or just plain old  ugly windows?  Make every dollar count by choosing Energy Star qualified windows.  They will lower your heating and cooling bills, make a dramatic difference in the appearance of your home, and keep it cozy in all weather conditions.

How much many can you save?  If you replace up to 300 square feet of your home’s single pane window with Energy Star qualified windows, you can pocket an estimated $465 in energy savings per year.  Keep in mind that this savings range is based on Energy Star calculations.

First, determine what type of window you need for your home.

Whether you’re building, remodeling, or simply replacing old windows, the first thing to consider is the type of window needed to complete your project.

Windows designed for all project types are perfect for new construction or renovation applications.  These windows contain a nailing fin that allows you to attach the window directly to the frame of the house.

Replacement windows are easily installed within the frame of an existing wood window.  Using exact fit replacement windows mean you won’t have to disturb the window trim, paint, or the home’s exterior which will save you money and time.  They’re perfect when you simply want to improve energy efficiency and don’t plan on a significant remodeling project.
