Replacement windows in San Jose, CA are something you’ve been considering for a while. As you look around your home, you’re not thrilled with some things about your current windows.
Just like everything else, windows have a lifespan. Most windows will last between 15 and 20 years, and once they’ve hit the limit of their lifespan, they don’t operate as well.
Window styles, materials, and options change over the years too, and your current windows may seem outdated. Perhaps you’ve visited friends or family recently and you admire the new replacement windows they had installed.
Perhaps you’re renovating your home to give it a much-needed makeover. You’re nearing the end of room renovations and realize that your windows take some of the lusters away from the hard work you’ve done in making significant updates and upgrades to your home.
Whatever your reason for considering having new replacement windows installed, now is the time to say goodbye to the old and hello to the new.
One of the most compelling reasons that homeowners decide to have replacement windows installed is to make their homes more energy efficient. A significant portion of heat loss in a home is through windows.
This can make the interior of your home much less comfortable in both very cold and very hot weather. In turn, you may have to adjust your thermostat continually to try to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home. This, in turn, means that your HVAC system runs more frequently and your energy costs go up.
Saying goodbye to windows that aren’t energy efficient and saying hello to energy efficient replacement windows will make your home more comfortable all year long and will lower your yearly energy costs.
Another reason that homeowners say goodbye to their old windows is that they detract from the home’s curb appeal. Curb appeal is important whether you plan to stay in your home for a long time or you are planning to sell it in the future.
The first impression people have of you is based on the outside of your home. If the yard is not well-landscaped, the house colors look faded (or, if it’s painted, the paint is chipping away), and the windows are worn out, dirty, and unappealing, the impression you leave on passersby or visitors may not be a good one.
With a little landscaping, new siding, and beautiful new replacement windows, the curb appeal of your home will immediately increase and each of these improvements or changes will actually add monetary value to your home.
The older your windows are, the less functional they will be. You may have significant trouble raising and lowering sashes to open and close your windows. You may not be able to close your windows all the way (this presents a security problem because if you can’t close windows all the way, then you can’t lock them, and your home and family are less secure). You may have cracks or chips in the glass panes that are spreading or dangerous (the glass could shatter when the window is being open or closed and injure someone).
Say goodbye to old windows that are not functioning properly and say hello to new replacement windows that are designed to function properly not just now, but for a long time into the future.
