Whether you’re buying replacement windows because your current windows are old, or you just bought a home and want windows to match the new design, there are several factors to think about during this process. Here are four things to consider when buying replacement windows.

This is the ultimate decision when purchasing replacement windows. Wood windows are more costly than vinyl and require more maintenance. However, vinyl windows provide a similar look for less money and lower maintenance.

Your home’s windows can play a significant factor in its energy efficiency. Windows insulate your home and help to keep you comfortable regardless of the weather outside. Our ENERGY STAR qualified windows can help you save money on your heating and cooling costs all year while also reducing your carbon footprint.

  1. Home and window style.

When looking for replacement windows, it’s important to buy a window that compliments your home and fits well with the existing window style and shape. The type of window and the customization can have a major impact on the cost of your replacement windows. Casement windows are typically more expensive than double hung windows, but provide an unobstructed view. Other customizable options like hardware can add to the cost as well, but can better reflect your home’s personal style.

  1. The lifetime of the replacement windows.replacement window
