A window replacement is not only about improving the curb appeal of your home. It can also help address home issues like poor natural lighting, inconsistent indoor comfort and high energy consumption. To get the most out of your investment, you must take a few things into account. Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City and Central Missouri explains what you need to consider before replacing your old windows.
Window Frame Material
The material you choose for your windows will have an impact on the result of your window replacement. Some materials are more durable and long-lasting than others. Wood, for instance, is known for its natural beauty, but it requires extensive maintenance. Vinyl, which remains one of the top window material choices, typically costs less. Our replacement windows, however, are made of Fibrex®, a composite material that combines the stability of wood with the strength of vinyl.
Another thing to consider is the glass package. If you want a more energy-efficient window, low-emissivity coatings (Low-E), at least two glass panes and an inert gas fill in between them are recommended.
There are plenty of replacement window options to consider for your installation project, from double-hung and casement windows, to sliding and picture windows. To make the most of any of these choices, Renewal by Andersen offers customization. Here, you have the freedom to choose the color of the frames, the type of finish for your hardware, and whether or not you want to add grilles to them.
No matter the reason for your desire to upgrade to newer, more energy-efficient windows, it is necessary to have a proper budget for it. Take note of your specific needs, for instance. Do you need more ventilation? Do you want to brighten up your home interiors? Also, higher quality windows come with a higher initial cost, but the excellent features included with them more than make up for it.
