Replacement windows add aesthetic appeal, resale value, comfort and functionality to any building, but the process of getting old windows removed, followed by the purchase and installation of new ones is lengthy, daunting and quite expensive, too. If you are currently considering the investment, here are a few factors to have in mind when choosing your windows:
- Choose the right frame material – solid wood window frames might be the most attractive solution, but they are also among the most expensive varieties of them all and they can stay solid only if you can and are willing to perform maintenance tasks and inspections regularly. You should know that there are many great alternatives to solid wood, aluminium-clad wood, vinyl and fiberglass being among the most popular and most affordable Denver window replacement solutions;
- Choose the right type of glass – single-glazing windows are no longer available, the types that you can choose from instead being double- and triple-glazing windows. These modern solutions insulate much more efficiently than the old windows that used only one glass pane and you can further enhance the efficiency of your windows if you choose windows with panes that are separated with layers of inert gas. Special, reflective coatings are also available for preventing the penetration of harsh sunshine into your rooms.
