When you have old, worn down windows, Rocklin, CA replacement windows are going to win against them every time. Sure, there are instances when you can repair your old windows and get by. But when you look at the old windows versus replacement windows head to head, the new windows are going to take the prize. Here are a few comparisons in which new replacement windows win the race:
It makes sense that replacement windows would win in energy efficiency when you think about how far and how fast technology has grown in recent years. Yes, you’ve noticed that in your smartphone and many other aspects of your life, but it’s also true in the window industry. Even if your ‘old’ windows are only a decade or two old, they’re ancient as far as window technology is concerned. Efficiency is at the center of that technology and is always one of the main goals. Any replacement window will blow an older window out of the water in efficiency. And those that are built with efficiency as the utmost importance can do even more.
Ease Of Operation
When windows get old enough, they start to have issues with their functionality. Sometimes it might be something small, like a lock that is hard to maneuver, and other times, it’s the whole window that won’t open or close. Replacement windows are going to win this category every time because they are brand new and operate like a dream. They haven’t been painted shut and they haven’t warped and rotted over time. Plus, replacement windows have been built with these issues in mind. They use materials (like vinyl) that simply doesn’t rot and warp, even in the heat and humidity of California. And they don’t have to be painted so they can’t be painted closed in the future, either.
Price And Value
It might seem strange, but you can get windows at a lower price today than your old windows likely cost in the past. If you go for vinyl, you’ll be surprised at the cost-effective options. And, vinyl windows especially, have a way of raising the value of your home. You get what you pay for and then some with these replacement windows. You don’t have to worry about the ROI, either, because you can expect up to 80% of your investment back when you sell the home. The rest you can easily recoup through energy bill savings in the meantime.
