Thinking of Replacing Windows or Doors for Your Home in Durham Region?

 

Choosing replacement windows or doors for your home is an important decision to make. It’s not something to be taken lightly or rushed through. Make sure that you ask plenty of questions and understand the various options, features, different styles, and how they can all improve the comfort and even value of your home before making a decision.

To help you along with this process,  we have answered a few generally asked questions. 

The first questions many homeowner ask as soon as they decide to replace windows is how much do windows cost to replace? The average cost of quality windows that can actually save you money on your heating and cooling expenses around the year can vary a lot. The price varies greatly because of several factors. First, the style is going to matter with regard to price. You may want a double hung, casement, fixed window, or bay window that can affect the price right off the bat. You’ll also have to realize that the size of the window is going to affect the price as well. For example, you may have an average sized picture window in your living room right now and want to change it to a casement window. That will affect the price. In addition if you want to make your window larger, that’s going to require a some extra work that will affect cost of the windows and installation as well. Okay now, how much money can you actually save with energy efficiency windows and doors? The windows and doors account for 40 percent of the energy lost in the average home.

If you focus on highly energy efficient windows, you could actually save a considerable amount of money through the years. It all depends on a number of factors. For example, triple glazed windows that are sealed with argon gas are going to be far more energy efficient than double glazed windows. In addition to choosing the window type, you also need to consider design, warranty, and proper installation. Even the most energy-efficient window must be properly installed to ensure energy efficiency and comfort. Have your windows installed by trained professionals according to manufacturer’s instructions.
