9 Common Questions About Window Replacement

new-window-research-young-female-on-laptop

When customers contact us about replacing windows, they often have many questions. Here are some of the top questions we receive, with answers to help you understand how to proceed with your window project.

  1. How do I know when to replace my windows?

Installing replacement windows is wise when you feel a draft through your windows. If you need to hold them open with something, they get stuck, or are painted shut, consider replacements. When thereโ€™s visible damage to the frame, call us to discuss your options.

  1. When can I get new windows?

Windows can be installed any time of the year, even if itโ€™s raining, snowing, or windy. Our one-for-one installation process minimizes energy loss, even in the middle of winter. We can help maintain comfort indoors while our installers work

  1. What kinds of windows should I get?

That depends on your home and personal style. At Window World of Boston, we offer many styles, including double hung windows, sliding windows, garden windows, and casement, awning, bay, bow, and basement windows. Weโ€™ll help you choose a type, custom shapes, and various options.

  1. How much can I really save with new windows?

Installing new windows results in long-term savings for most homeowners. Look for Low-E coatings, which reflect infrared energy and let visible light in, and for a productโ€™s U-factor, which indicates its rate of heat loss. The Solar Heat Gain Coefficient tells you how well it blocks heat from sunlight. Look for windows with the Energy Star label

  1. How much do replacement windows cost?

Thereโ€™s no easy answer, as there are many variables. We can help you choose windows by considering your budget and different types of windows and materials. During an in-home consultation, we can talk prices before you commit to buying anything. We also offer flexible financing and payment options.

  1. Can I save on taxes with new windows?

Yes. You can qualify for tax credits by installing energy-efficient windows. The nonbusiness energy property tax credit was extended through December 31, 2020, for primary residences. You can receive up to 10% of the cost of your replacements, up to $500.

  1. Will my home value really increase?

New windows can prevent air leakage, improving energy efficiency. They also help the exterior of your home look more appealing, make it brighter inside, and save buyers the cost of fixing or replacing windows in their new house.

  1. Must I replace all my windows at the same time?

Itโ€™s not absolutely necessary, although it can maximize the benefits of replacement windows. A new set of windows can update the look of your home. If this is cost-prohibitive, you can replace the windows in one section of your house at a time. The more windows you replace at once, the lower the overall installation cost may be.

  1. Will new windows make my home more secure?

Replacement windows can be ordered with high-quality locks, shatterproof film, and high-strength glass. You can also install window security alarms or window bars while installing exterior motion-sensing lights, sharp shrubbery, and security cameras to help deter intruders.
