Questions To Ask Yourself Before Shopping for Replacement Windows

Jan 15, 2018

Purchasing replacement windows for your San Diego home is one decision you won’t regret. After all, the right replacement windows can improve the comfort, energy efficiency, and security of your home, not to mention give it some extra curb appeal. However, there are currently a wide range of replacement window models on the market and not all of them will deliver the quality you’re looking for. That’s why it’s important to do your homework and ask yourself some important questions prior to hitting the showroom floor. That includes questions like:

What was wrong with my last set of windows?
This is the perfect time to remove some grievances that were caused by your last set of windows. Even if clear problems don’t come to mind, perhaps there were some benefits you’re hoping your replacement windows will bring to your home that your last set of windows didn’t. For example, you may want replacement windows that will help you save money on monthly energy bills, or maybe you’re looking for replacement windows that will offer enhanced security for your home. By asking yourself these questions ahead of time, you’ll have a clear idea of which features to be on the lookout for.

How much money am I willing to invest?
Chances are, you’ve considered the short-term budget of your replacement windows (or the price tag window cost), which is great and very important information to have. However, it’s also important to remember that there are more expenses that occur after buying the replacement windows and having them installed. Window materials vary and some will require more upkeep, maintenance, and repairs than others, all of which comes with a cost. For this reason, it’s important to know your long-term budget, or how much you’re willing to spend over the lifetime of your windows.

How much time am I willing to invest?
Similar to your budget, it’s important to have an idea of how much time you’re willing to spend on your replacement windows needs. For example, wood windows require annual peeling, sanding, painting and staining while other window materials like vinyl or fiber only require the occasional cleaning with soap and water. Being clear on how much time you’re willing to give your replacement windows will help you choose the right material for your home and will prevent you being stuck with any unwanted extra chores. Ignoring those chores can impact the functionality and appearance of certain windows.
