Windows offer protection from weather elements, amazing curb appeal, and the comfort of natural light. When windows have aged, they can drain your wallet with additional energy expenses, and give a tattered look to the home. Replacing the windows can offer many benefits and should be considered a home improvement project.

Energy Savings

Do you feel a draft when you pass by your windows in the chilly winter months? That cold air entering your home is burning a hole in your wallet through higher energy bills. New windows can seal up the area with better insulation and reduce those drafts. This will allow a reduction in wear and tear on your HVAC unit attempting to keep your home temperature comfortable, use less energy, and save a few bucks every month.  

Increased Comfort

Similar to the above benefit, the interior of your home will be more comfortable when new windows are installed. New windows come with double or triple panes of glass, and a thin layer of argon gas between those panes. This technology reduces the transfer of the sun’s rays in the hot summer months. 

Increased Value

As with most home improvement projects, window replacements offer an amazing return on investment. Some reports show a return of nearly 72%! Brand new windows appeal to a buyer because they know these windows will last for decades. 


New window technology offers them being made of tempered or laminated glass. New windows have safety features like locks and sensors that make them more difficult to force open and break from the outside. New windows offer better functionality than older windows, which provide an easier way to escape during house fires or other emergencies.

Easy Maintenance

Cleaning and maintaining old windows can be a hassle. The frames of windows may be peeling or falling apart. New windows offer the ability to tilt inside for easy cleaning procedures. Some even offer blinds or shades inside the window panes making dusting and cleaning much easier.

Curb Appeal

Replacement windows can increase the value of your home, offering a more attractive curb appeal. Depending on the type of window you choose, the style of your home can alter. Perhaps you desire french panes rather than large single-glass windows. Window options are endless when it comes to the design and appearance of your home.

Reduced Allergens

Shades and blinds can hold dust and allergens making dusting a common duty on your home cleaning list. New windows offer an option of the blinds inside the window panes allowing you to cross off that item on your to-do list. Additionally, the lack of blinds can keep children and pets safe from hanging blind cords.
