Whether you are replacing windows as a result of window damage or simply to reap the benefits of replacement windows, chances are you would like to get the most out of the new windows in your Tacoma home. Many homeowners may be surprised to find that the right replacement window choice can solve a number of common household problems. The key is to review what issues you experienced with your windows in the past, what inconveniences you currently notice in your home, and what benefits you would like to receive. To help with the process we have created a short buying guide for your Tacoma, WA replacement windows based on common household issues.
Your Monthly Energy Bill Continues to Rise: Choose Vinyl or Fiberglass
We would all love to spend less money on our electric bill, but if you’ve made multiple attempts to reduce your energy usage and your bills continue to rise, your windows are likely the problem. The simple solution is to choose a more energy efficient replacement window material, one that is weather resistant and offers optimal insulation. Materials like vinyl and fiberglass are both durable and known for their impressive energy efficiency.
You Hear Every Sound that Goes On Outside Your Home: Choose Double Pane Glass
While we all love the occasional sound of birds singing in the morning, most homeowners aren’t a fan of the sound of construction or rush hour traffic. If your home features more traditional window frames, they likely include thin single-paned glass that does a poor job of blocking out exterior noise. We suggest choosing replacement windows that feature double- or triple-paned glass. Not only will windows with thicker glass restore some peace and quiet in your home, but they will also help insulate your home (see above).
You Plan On Reselling Your Home: Choose Vinyl or Consult with a Real Estate Agent
While reselling your home may not be a problem, it’s definitely a factor that should be kept in mind while shopping for replacement windows. By choosing the right replacement window material you can actually increase the resale value of your home, in some case returning the original cost of the windows. In fact, recent real estate reports have found that homes with vinyl windows will sell at a higher price than those without. We suggest speaking with a real estate agent or visiting local open houses to learn more about what’s standard in your area.
These are just some of the many problems that can be resolved with replacement windows. The right replacement windows can increase the comfort of your home, decrease monthly expenses, and even improve the overall safety and protection of your home.
