The 4 Things to Consider When Shopping for Replacement Vinyl Windows


 
Home Improvement,Home Repair
If you've decided that it is time to replace your windows, it can be a bit overwhelming to begin the selection process. Many won't replace their windows more than once or twice in a lifetime, so that alone is a good excuse for being unsure where to start. There are a few factors that are going to help you arrive at your final decisions. Read on, and learn what it is you need to know to make the right decisions about your replacement windows!

WHAT MATERIAL WILL YOU SELECT?

There are two basic materials used for modern windows: wood and vinyl. Both are good options for framing your windows, and each has their pros to consider. Depending on your personal taste, you may prefer one or the other, aesthetically, as well.

Vinyl framed windows are cost-effective, energy efficient, and the most popular choice of today's homeowners. They have a clean and fresh look on an home, especially homes of more modern construction. The icing on the cake is the easy maintenance of vinyl. Mostly, you just will be cleaning them from time-to-time, as vinyl is hardy and stands up to weather conditions of all kinds.

If you have an older or period home, you're probably going to be weighing the advantages of wood framed windows. Vinyl frames on an older home can look a bit out of place, as they're just a more modern material. Wood frames can be as energy efficient as vinyl, but require a bit more upkeep and maintenance than do vinyl. If you're choosing wood, be prepared to care for them over the years to maintain their luxury look.

CONSIDER THE DESIGN OF YOUR NEW WINDOWS

The style and design of your windows is important for you to consider. Windows are a high visibility aspect of a home's design, and you should think carefully about how you want them to look. Windows can really complete the exterior look of the home, especially with paned designs for visual interest. A plain window is fine, but some extra touches can really complete the look of your new window.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY OF NEW WINDOWS

Modern windows are built for energy efficiency, but depending on your locale, there are different grades of windows that will maximize that efficiency. In the window world, you'll hear the term "U-Factor," which refers to the heat loss capacity of the windows you'll be installing. In addition, there is a the "R-Value," which helps to determine the insulation properties of the windows in question.

Consult with your sales representative to determine the best combination of cost and energy efficiency in your new windows. If you live in, for example, Minnesota, you'll have different needs and concerns than those living in, say, Oregon.

WHAT KIND OF WARRANTY?

A great warranty tells you more than just that you'll be able to replace faulty windows. A great warranty tells you that the manufacturer is confident that they're selling a quality window to consumers. Make sure that the windows you buy come with an industry-standard warranty, and that you're purchasing from a reputable dealer. A check with the local Better Business Bureau should give you piece of mind on this score.
