New replacement windows will increase your home’s curb appeal and energy efficiency. High-quality windows are great for reducing the outdoor noise that enters your living spaces. When planning a window replacement project, one of the first things you need to decide on is the number of units you are getting.
Here are tips to help you determine how many windows you need to get.
Consider the Age of Your Existing Windows
Accidents happen, and, sometimes, you will need to replace a window or two because of them. For instance, an extreme weather event or ball hit can crack your windows.
However, sometimes, it could be a challenge to determine how many units you need to replace. You can start by considering the age of your existing windows. It may be time for a whole-home window replacement if they are at least two decades old and have issues like defective hardware, poor operation and broken seals.
Think About Your Needs
Another thing to consider when deciding how many windows to get is your needs. It is not necessary to replace all your windows at once. You can go for a schedule or timeline that is more suitable for your needs. Prioritize windows that require immediate attention, such as ones with rot or mold on the frames and cracked glass.
Moreover, make sure to hire an experienced professional for your project. Get referrals from your family, friends, colleagues and neighbors. Once you have a list of prospective installers, research them, read feedback, ask for references, and check for licensing and insurance.
Factor in the Savings You Can Get
In some cases, window companies offer deals when you get a certain number of replacement windows. You can ask your contractors about their latest deals when planning your project. Still, in most cases, the more windows you replace, the more savings you can get.
