If your Youngstown home is ready for window replacement, there is a lot to consider during the process. Sometimes it’s easy to overlook the small details. Unfortunately, it’s the small details that can end up costing you a lot of money down the road.
As you’re preparing for your window installation project, here is how to get the most out of the experience.
Consider Maintenance Requirements
New replacement windows look beautiful when they’re first installed. But what happens to the windows months or even years later?
If you’re not keen on tending to window maintenance year after year, you’ll need to think twice about the frame material.
Vinyl is the BEST option for frame material.
It’s a low-maintenance material that requires virtually no work at all! With wood window frames, they’ll need to be treated on a regular basis. Otherwise they are prone to peeling or even rotting.
Choose Windows with an Energy Star Certification
All window companies can claim to have energy efficient windows. However, an Energy Star certification can determine if the windows are top-notch when it comes to energy savings. You’ll typically find the Energy Star seal on the window label, You may also find a removal blue seal on the glass of the window.
Think of Window Replacement as a Long-term Investment
The cost of replacement windows is all over the map. If you’re looking for the cheapest window on the market, keep in mind that new windows are an investment. Installing poor quality windows can yield subpar energy savings, with the potential of replacing the windows again in just a few short years.
When it comes to long-term investment, selecting quality vinyl will get you the best value. For example, our windows are engineered with SunShield® vinyl–a high-performance material that withstands the effects of weather and ultraviolet light.
Window Installer Qualifications
The most expensive windows won’t do you any good if they’re improperly installed. Installation is just as important as the window product you pick–and maybe even more so.
Be sure to find out if your window installers are certified and experienced at their crafts. This will give you confidence that the job is done correctly and on time.
Make it Your Own with Decorative Upgrades
Homeowners can forget about all of the customizable upgrades for new replacement windows. While new windows on their own are beautiful, their appearance is taken to another level with the addition of decorative glass and custom grid systems.
These upgrades come in a variety of options, including rain glass for extra privacy. Floral and prairie are two additional popular glass patterns that enhance curb appeal. Lastly, grids add a traditional touch to even the most modern homes. It’s easy to make window replacement a personalized project with Window Depot Penn-Ohio!
