If you are considering having your windows replaced, you can count on the fact that there will be many people who have opinions on what you should get. While there’s never anything wrong with taking the ideas of others into consideration, it is also important to remember that they are not experts. That is why we recommend you trust the window installation experts when you need help with any of the following.
- Energy Efficiency
- Budgeting Issues
Can you take your own measurements? Yes, if you want a basic idea, but you should trust the professionals to do the final measurements. These need to be extremely precise, and even the smallest mistake can cause a big issue when it comes time for installation. In the event that something does go wrong, you want to make sure that you are not the one responsible for the mistake, or you will end up being responsible for paying for it.
Trust the installation experts to handle measuring your current windows, measuring any area you’re considering adding a window, and anything else that has to do with your windows. The good news is that at Progressive Insulation & Windows, we offer free in-home estimates so we can get the measuring right.
Even the most standard of windows today are leaps and bounds better at energy efficiency compared to the windows of just a decade ago. Double-pane and air fillings are both standards, and today’s smaller frames mean that the glass is larger, so you get more light – which can help keep your home warm in those cool months.
All of that said, there are also many energy-efficient upgrades that might make sense for you. If you need to keep costs as low as possible, then you will be glad to know that the base level windows are plenty efficient. However, if you prioritize energy efficiency and are willing to invest in them, then it might be worth upgrading. Trust the experts to outline all the options, so you know what is worth it – and what is not.
If you have a small budget and cannot decide if you should replace just a few windows with better windows, or if you should replace all of your windows with base-level windows, you should get advice from a window installation professional. At Progressive Insulation & Windows, our goal is to ensure that you get the best possible result – not to simply get you to pay as much as possible.
