If you are like most people, you want to ensure that you are saving money and getting the window or door solution you want. For some people, inexpensive options can range from trying to add weatherstripping to your window, or even applying vinyl film. While these options do help, nothing beats the energy efficiency, aesthetic look, and performance of quality replacement windows. While this option costs more, it has to be weighed against the ROI and the future savings it will inevitably create. Lets look at both of those closer.
Studies have shown that replacement windows have become one of the best investments in your home, since they return 100% of the investment. With home values rising, replacement windows have actually become one of the more affordable ways to add value to your home when compared to traditional remodeling projects, like adding on to the house.
The true cost of windows will come down to how much energy you use to maintain your comfort zone. Living in southern California means dealing with warmer weather and running your air conditioning if you’re not by the beach. You will have to calculate your electricity usage, and the price, to determine how much of an impact energy efficient windows will make.
It’s hard to put a number to the worth of a window if you value the aesthetic and performance aspects of beautiful new windows. But for many people that live in San Diego and are coastal, this means dealing with the warm temperatures during the day while at night it cools off quickly. If you find yourself opening and closing your windows throughout the house everyday, and you’re tired of those stubborn windows being tough to move. You’re ready for lightweight and easy to move replacement windows.
Another question we hear often is how do I know I’m getting the best deal? This is not an easy question, but what our research has found is this:
- Big box stores often get a cheaper line of window made for them that isn’t cheap for you at all.
- Finding an installer that is licensed, insured, and has the experience can be tough.
- Window companies that use high pressure sales reps do so at a premium.
