Buying replacement windows for your San Diego home is a fun and exciting time to try something new. However, you want to be sure that you take the right steps to ensure you’re happy with your window purchase for years to come. One way to accomplish this is by taking the time to decide on the window material that best fits the needs of your home. Every window material is different, however, the right window material can increase the overall comfort of your home, help you save money on monthly bills, and even provide your home with more security. Still, how do you know which material is the right choice for you? To help you decide, we’ve put together a short buyer’s guide to finding the right window material for your home.
If You’re Not Interested in More Chores
There are some homeowners who aren’t interested in taking on windows that will require peeling, sanding, painting and staining as part of their maintenance. It’s not that you don’t want to put work into your home, it’s simply that you already have your hands full! In this case, we suggest a low maintenance replacement window option like vinyl or fiberglass windows that only require the occasional cleaning with soap and water.
If You’re Looking to Save Money
If your top priority for your new windows is saving some money on monthly bills, then energy efficient replacement windows are what you’re looking for. After all, according to the American Energy Association (AEA), more than 60% of the energy wasted in the average American household escapes through windows and doors. By choosing a replacement window material with notable insulating qualities, like vinyl, you can save hundreds on your annual energy expenses.
If You Plan on Reselling Your Home
If you plan on holding on to your home for the rest of your life, that’s great! However, if you plan on selling it in the future, it’s important to remember that every detail of your home will contribute to the final resale value, including your replacement windows. Fortunately, recent real estate reports have shown us that homes with vinyl windows tend to sell at a higher price than those without. In fact, homeowners with vinyl windows can expect up to an 80% return on the original price of their windows once their home has sold.
