Replacing your windows are a major home improvement project. Before a single nail is even lifted from your old windows, make sure you’re well prepared. To assist you, Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City has put together a list of four window replacement basics:
1. The window style should match a home’s needs.
Before any installation project, consider the window style your home needs. For example, Renewal by Andersen double hung windows in Independence, MO, are great for those who prefer a traditional, elegant look. If you prefer incredible views, go for our picture windows. Awning windows, on the other hand, are perfect for limited spaces while delivering ventilation.
Whatever you choose, your replacement window should satisfy your home’s form and function needs.
2. Durable framing materials are essential
Durable replacement windows should serve you for years. This is why Renewal by Andersen of Kansas City only uses innovative Fibrex® material for window frames. This exclusive technology makes our products capable of withstanding considerable damage and wear. Window frames that feature this material are tough enough to thrive under the harshest Kansas weather conditions.
3. Glass type will determine energy efficiency
Look for windows that provide energy savings. For instance, Renewal by Andersen replacement windows are produced using Low-E4 thermal insulation glass. These decrease energy loss during cold and warm weather, therefore lowering your energy use. Not only are our windows functional and beautiful, these can also help lower your cooling and heating bills.
4. Window replacement is not a DIY job
To avoid problems in the future, never attempt to install replacement by yourself. Installing residential windows in Independence, MO, requires professional skills and proper equipment. Our factory-trained experts are always fully-equipped and ready to assist you, so call us before embarking on this project.
