Replacement Window Expectations

Apr 6, 2020

There are a lot of things that replacement windows in La Jolla, CA will do for your home, but just like any home improvement project, they can’t work miracles and solve every issue your home may have. You need to set your expectations on the right path, so you are pleased with the end result. Set them too high and you might be disappointed. And it’s not really the window’s fault. Here are a few things windows can’t do to help you set the right expectations for the project.

Windows Can’t Solve Every Efficiency Issue

New windows are going to make a world of difference in the efficiency of your home. In fact, they will make a bigger difference than any other project you could take on to improve efficiency. However, they can’t solve every problem your home has with efficiency. They can’t, for example, add insulation to the attic to keep air from leaking out there. And they can’t force old appliances to run efficiently. Those issues will still exist after you get new windows if you have those problems already. But windows are a great start and really will make a huge difference in efficiency.

Windows Can’t Fix All Curb Appeal Issues

If your siding is chipping and fading, your landscaping is overgrown and dying out, and your windows are old and sagging, getting new windows will make a huge difference in the curb appeal of your home. They will draw the eye to their fresh look and make it easier for you to handle the other things that might be impacting the look of the home. However, if you really need to work on the landscaping, they aren’t going to do the weeding for you. And the siding will still be peeling. They’ll fix the looks tied to old, saggy windows, but they can’t do much about the rest.

Windows Can’t Guarantee Safety

One of your goals for your new windows might be to keep your home safer than before. They can certainly help with that because new windows have thicker glass, which is harder to break, and they are impossible to pry open from the outside. However, if you don’t keep the windows closed and locked when they leave the house, they really can’t guarantee your safety. They only help when you use them properly.

These are just a few of the things that you should not place on replacement windows in La Jolla, CA because they just can’t do it all. You will, however, notice a huge difference in the look and feel of your home and your energy bills will be much lower than before as well. New windows make big differences and if you set your expectations right on what they really can do, you’ll be thrilled with the final outcome.
