What to Consider When Replacing Your Windows

Nov 21, 2016

If you are a San Diego homeowner replacing your windows for the first time, you may be overwhelmed. There are so many options available on the market and each one seems to have benefits, how can you possibly choose? Well before arriving on the Window Solutions Inc. showroom floor and giving yourself too many ideas to process at once, there are some things you should take the time to consider. To help simplify the process, we have put together a short list of factors to to keep in mind before going window shopping.

  1. A High Price Doesn’t Always Mean High Value: Windows are one of those purchases that can quickly become expensive, but don’t be fooled into believing that a high price tag means you’re getting the most for your money. Many windows on the market are expensive simply due to aesthetics. They may look and even feel better than other windows on the market, but when it comes to maintenance and durability, they are no match for other options. Choosing pricier models can lead to replacing your windows again sooner than you would like.
  1. Make Sure Your Windows Match the Climate: San Diego is known for its beautiful weather, but during the summer, it can become incredibly hot. The area can receive lots of rain during the winter as well. Because of the climate, it’s important to consider both rain and heat while shopping for your replacement windows. Make sure your windows are thick enough to keep air conditioning in, but avoid metal materials that hold onto heat. Also be sure that your window model does not damage or chip when a rainy season occurs.
  1. Make Sure the Right Security Features Are Available: Windows are the most common way thieves enter homes, so making sure your windows keep you safe should be a top concern. Always ask about any extra security hardware that is available for a window model and see how it measures up to other security features on the market.
  1. Look Into UV Protection: Many windows offer tinting, glazing, or other UV blocking technologies that help reduce the heat that enters your home. Another benefit of adding UV blocking technology is that the light that does enter your home will be less likely to damage the fabrics and furniture in your home.
