Reason 1: You Want More Natural Light

It’s not always easy to increase the amount of natural lighting in a home, but when you are getting replacement windows, you have a prime opportunity to do just that. If you want more light, you’ll want bigger windows and replacing the windows with larger ones can help you do that. You can just increase the size of certain windows or you can take a block of several windows and smooth them together into one large picture window to give your home more light.

Reason 2: You Want A Bigger View

There are plenty of beautiful views in California and if you have one outside of your home, you want to see as much of it as you can, whether you are outside or not. When you’re inside your home, the walls get in the way of the view, but you can widen what you can see by getting larger windows. Consider sliding windows, for example, since they are horizontal and offer you a larger side to side view. Put in a bay or bow window where two or three windows sat separately together to get a larger view as well. There are plenty of options to bring in the view by increasing your window size.

Reason 3: You Want To Increase Your Home’s Value

Any time you take on a home improvement project, you should think about home value as part of it. Replacement windows will increase your home’s value, but potential buyers like big, open windows so getting larger windows will help you increase the value of your home even further.
