Every window has a service life during which it performs at its best against tough weather. But like other home components, it must be replaced when it reaches the end of its life span and begins to develop issues. However, before you replace your windows, whether you opt for sliding windows or casement windows or any other type of window, here are the five factors you must first consider.
The window frame material is an important aspect customers should be aware of, especially since it is related to the beauty and energy efficiency of your windows. There are various materials to choose from. However, a highly specialized material manufactured by Renewal by Andersen called Fibrex® is one of the strongest, most energy-efficient and most appealing window frame materials today.
The glass is just as important as the frame of your new windows. Do some research on Low-E glass, dual pane windows and gas fills to identify the right one that would last a long time in your area’s weather.
Trim and Sash
Adding dimension to your windows is possible by choosing the right trim and sash. These contribute the thickness and thinness of the window frames that allow your windows to look more appealing. They also determine the frame strength.
Whether you choose picture windows for maximum views, or go with double-hung windows for the classic look, the color of your frames is a huge factor that contributes to curb appeal. In some cases, contrasting colors make windows a good focal point, but you should always consider your home’s theme.
