If you have ever painted a picture, or even drawn something for your kids, when you look at that blank canvas or sheet of paper, the options are endless. You can draw whatever you want and can color it in with any crayon, marker, or colored pencil you have. When it comes to window technology, nearly the same thing is true. It has advanced so much over the years that when you get new vinyl windows, you start fresh and can get just about anything you want. You have the complete freedom to design windows that suit your style and preferences, but you will need to take a number of things into account. Start by asking yourself some important questions so you can start to add to the blank canvas of your Roseville, CA home in the right manner.
What do you like about your current windows?
When you think about your current windows, do you like the way they look? Do they operate well? Is their color nice against your house? List the things you like about your windows. You might want some of the same things again, though you are free to change them if you please.
What problems do your windows have?
Most older windows are going to have issues and you want to address those with the new vinyl windows. Do you have condensation issues? Cold drafts and water leaks? Those problem areas can happen again, but not if you get the right vinyl windows.
Are your windows where you want them?
It’s never easy to move or re-organize windows, but if you’re going to do it, it’s easier to do so when you are replacing them with vinyl windows. Ask if your windows are the right size or if you’d like them to be larger or of a different style.
Do your windows reduce outside noise enough?
Are you annoyed by traffic noise, kids playing nearby or anything else? Your new vinyl windows can help with that with a number of additional features. If you recognize that the windows don’t block noise, you can change that with the next round of vinyl windows.
How much energy efficiency do you want?
You know that anything you get in new vinyl windows will probably be more energy efficient than what you have now. However, there are ways of making new windows even more efficient. You can get triple pane glass instead of double pane, for example. You can also get a low-e coating on the glass or you can fill the portion between the panes with argon or krypton gas instead of air. The decisions are all yours!
