Choosing New Windows for Your Home
When was the last time you took a look at (or even thought about) your windows? Regardless of the age of your home, it’s something you should pay attention to periodically.

Should You Repair or Replace Old Windows?
Knowing whether you should repair or replace the windows in your home is something that you have to keep in mind. This is one of the most frequent questions we get from window customers. At times repairs can be made, but most often we will recommend replacements.
If the windows are badly damaged or older, then repairs are usually not warranted. With older windows that aren’t as energy efficient as others, you’re spending money to repair something that is actually wasting your money. Energy efficient windows will pay for themselves over time. But with a newer window, sometimes repair makes more sense.
Types of Windows
There are many types of windows that you can choose from. They come in a variety of styles, materials, and colors as well as options that allow you to customize the windows to your particular needs and budget. We generally recommend people select windows of the same size to avoid the extra cost of enlarging (or reducing) the opening size. As far as style goes, don’t be limited by what you already have. You might choose a different style window of the same size to change the look of your home.
Window Energy Efficiency
Energy efficiency should be at the top of your list when you’re evaluating new windows. Windows come with ratings stickers that can help you compare. Our suggestion is to choose the most energy-efficient windows you can afford.
