Whether you’re planning to replace some or all of your windows, it helps to know what to consider for your window installation project. This lets you save money in the long run especially when you choose windows that offer better performance and efficiency for your home. To learn what you need to consider, our local window installation team at Renewal by Andersen® of Phoenix shares some ideas:
The Age of Your Windows
The age of your windows can determine whether it makes sense to repair, restore or replace them. If they’re already near the end of their serviceable life, it’s often better to get them replaced. Other types of damage can also be difficult to repair even by a professional, such as foggy window panes. This indicates the seals have already been broken and the gas in between the panes has leaked out. Other types of damage can be caused by the weather, such as hail and wind-driven projectiles, and by rot if you have wooden frames.
Although you can choose to repair and restore your current windows, this can get expensive if you find yourself doing this frequently. Eventually, your old windows aren’t worth repairing anymore, and you’ll still end up paying for a full replacement. To save yourself the trouble, consider investing in new windows instead.
Window Frame Material
Some of the most common window frame materials include vinyl, wood, aluminum and fiberglass. They each offer unique benefits as well as drawbacks, so make sure to consider which works best for your home. If you want a better alternative, however, Fibrex windows are worth looking at. Fibrex is an Andersen-exclusive composite material that combines the strength and durability of wood and the low-maintenance properties of vinyl. Our proprietary material lets us use narrower frames, which then allows for more glass area and therefore a bigger view of the outdoors.
