There are many reasons for you to pursue a window replacement project. You may be wanting to update your existing windows to match the newly-renovated parts of your home. You may also be wanting to replace your old windows that are already in poor condition and damaged beyond repair.
In any of these situations, finding the best window for your home is of key importance. Below are four tips to consider when choosing the right replacement windows.
1. Consider the Material for the Window Frame
There are a lot of choices when it comes to the material for the window frame. Wood, aluminum, vinyl, fiberglass, and composite are some of the available ones in the market. Before you choose the best one for your new windows, consider every material’s insulative value, as well as maintenance, and color choice.
2. Consider the Window Glass
Though there are a lot of glass options for your casement windows, it is important to take note of several factors. For one, you need a window glass that can help provide UV protection, visible light transfer and noise reduction. It must also provide a great deal of insulation to keep your home cool during the summer and warm during the winter.
3. Consider Energy-Efficient Windows
Be sure that the window you choose has an ENERGY STAR® label indicating their rating based on your area’s climate. Also, take note of the U-factor and the solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) ratings to help maximize energy savings during harsh weather conditions in New Mexico.
4. Choose Your Style for Your Window
Choosing the type of window comes down not just to your personal preference, but also to certain factors like the overall design of your home’s interior and exterior. There are many choices to make, from sliding to double hung windows.
