Some roof replacement contractors and even homeowners, especially those who sell their homes, swear by window replacement. After all, it seems to make sense especially if your window is damaged beyond repair or if you’re looking for a more energy-efficient alternative. That said, the cost of the entire procedure may cause you to ask yourself if it is really worth the investment, money and time alike.
Window replacement is not cheap, that much we know. This has led to some experts to say that energy savings alone won’t pay for the outlay unless you’re selling your home. This, however, is short-sighted as it only talks about the immediate benefits of replacing your windows. There are some things, however, that are far harder to quantify and thus fall under the realm of “intangible”, but they’re benefits nonetheless.
Hynes Roofing & Siding, a trusted window and roofing contractor, talks about some of these intangibles in today’s post.
Top of the list is better and easier operation. Replace old windows that have outlived their welcome. Choose from different operation schemes such as cranks, sliding tracks, or swinging depending on the available space and your preferences.
New windows can improve daylighting, which allows you to take advantage of the sun’s natural illumination and thus save energy during the day. In addition, exposure to natural light can also improve your mood, enhance your productivity and even give you a good night’s sleep.
Maximize your home’s energy efficiency by swapping out your old, leaky window with a weathertight, state-of-the-art unit with better glazing and frames. This allows you to have a cooler home in summer and a warmer home in winter.
