• Are Window Replacements Worth the Investment

    November 16, 2022 | Blog | Jordynn Bloss
  • If your home’s current windows are still intact, the idea of replacing them may seem a bit frivolous at first. Although the cost for window replacements is high, it’s such a great investment and is in line with most home improvements. The typical cost of home improvement in 2018 for most homeowners was in the range of $5,000 to $10,000, according to iProperty Management. If you’re going to spend that much anyway, then window replacement is a great project to focus on. Let’s take a look at a few reasons why getting replacements is a great investment.

    Dual-Pane Windows Improve Your Home’s Insulation

    First, if you replace your windows, you’ll find mostly dual-pane windows available. Single-pane windows still exist, but mainly as replacement windows for homes that need to replace only one. For a whole-house window replacement, you want dual-pane windows because of their superior temperature and noise insulation. If you already have dual-panes, check how old they are. If they are several years old, then the technology has likely improved since you had those installed. A new set may offer even more insulation, which will keep your home comfortable and quiet.

    Getting Rid of Grungy Aluminum Frames

    If you do have single-pane windows right now, then they likely have aluminum frames. Those frames can get grungy and corroded over the years. Some windows installed back in the 1980s and 1990s have a black coating or maybe made of black vinyl, and even these can look faded and old. Dual-pane windows made now typically have a white frame that is easy to clean, although other colors are available.

    Making Your Home Look a Bit Newer

    Finally, those new windows will make your home look a bit newer, which in turn makes your home look better cared for and can raise your home’s value. If you’re planning to sell and currently have single-pane windows, then you should replace those with dual-pane now to improve your home’s appearance.
