When tackling window installation, you can choose to replace all your windows at the same time or just one or two of them at a time. There are pros and cons to both approaches, as laid out in today’s post from Renewal by Andersen® of Louisville/Lexington.
Replacing all your windows at the same time will cost more on the front end than just replacing a few, but is actually likely to be the more cost-effective approach in the long run. Check with your window contractor to see if they offer any financing plans that could help offset this cost.
Window Performance and Energy Efficiency
If you are choosing to have just a few windows replaced at a time, it is important to determine which windows are most detrimental to your home’s overall energy efficiency. This includes windows with drafts and west-facing windows without low-emissivity coatings. Windows that are difficult to operate need to be prioritized. For example, casement windows are equipped with sashes that need to sit flush with the frame, otherwise air will leak out of the window, affecting indoor comfort levels.
Achieving a consistent look can be challenging if you replace different windows in your home at different times, especially if the same contractor doesn’t work on all projects. Differences in grille styles, frame thicknesses and shades of the same color may seem minor, but these things are more noticeable from the curb than you might think. Working with the same contractor helps minimize inconsistencies.
