Home Depot Replacement Windows
If the windows in your home are between 15 and 30 years old, we suggest you consider replacing them. As a window wears over time, it loses its efficiency and the ability to seal out exterior air and seal in your heat or air conditioning. Its frame can also become bowed or warped due to repetitive exposure to heat and moisture. Plus, if your windows are wooden, you may see signs of rot or termite damage on the frames. This, along with warping and bowing, can lead to leaks and a lower energy efficiency.
On the other hand, if your home’s windows simply look worn, are outdated, or don’t fit the style you want your home to have, you may also want to consider replacement windows.
Window Styles and Panes
We think the hardest part of replacing your windows is choosing the style of window you’re going to have next. There are so many options; you can make things easy by replacing a single-hung window with a single-hung window or a picture window with a picture window, or you can opt for a completely new design. At P.J. Fitzpatrick, we usually urge our customers to play around with window options and create a fresh, new look for their home.
With replacement windows, you’ll also have the option of choosing the number of panes the windows have. While single-pane windows were a popular choice for years, homeowners realized that they didn’t insulate as well as double-pane or triple-pane windows. Which you choose depends on your preference and your budget, and we’ll help you decide.
Today’s windows are more energy efficient than ever before and if you want to go green, they can help you not only reduce your carbon footprint, but also help you save on your energy bills. When your windows are able to form a tight seal, you’ll notice that your HVAC unit won’t have to work as hard to keep your home as warm or cool as you’d like.
