If you live in a home with old windows, you may be wondering what the best thing to do with them is – should you replace them? Should you restore them? What are the benefits of each? Our window installation experts are here to help:
First of all, consider the materials that make up your windows – do you have aluminum windows? Wooden windows? Vinyl windows? The type of window you have determines whether or not you can restore it. For instance, once aluminum, vinyl, and steel windows reach a certain age, they can’t be restored. Wooden windows, however, can be.
If you have wooden windows, the next step is to determine whether you want to replace them or restore them. In order to restore them, our experts will need to remove them, assess their damage, and repair them using new framework, hardware and glass (if needed).
If you’ve decided to replace your windows, you’ll have a wide variety of window options to choose from. At P.J. Fitzpatrick, we sell windows in styles like awning, glider, double hung, round top, and more (for a complete list, click here). You’ll also have your choice of window materials.
When it comes to old windows, our window installation experts recommend replacing them. Not only will you change the look of your home for the better, you’ll also save money on your energy bills. Our energy-efficient windows can help prevent your air conditioning or heat from escaping your home, which means your HVAC unit won’t have to work as hard to keep you and your family comfortable. In return, you’ll pay less.
