What Homeowners Must Learn About New Window Installation
Can I get new windows installed any time of the year?
Yes, you can, so long as the weather permits. When it’s raining outside it’s not an ideal time to get new windows installed. Dry, sunny days are ideal for any type of home improvement services.
How do I prepare my home for new window installation or repair?
This is the easy part. The most you will need to do is make sure the windows yo will be replacing are bare and can be accessed by a window technician with minimal effort. To do that remove your curtains and blinds and anything that’s directly in the path to your windows, both inside and out. Also, if you have any pets, make sure they’re not going to be in the way of the workers. Your dogs are cute, but they aren’t qualified to help with this kind of project.
About how long does a new window installation job take?
Every window installation job is unique and the time it takes to completely finish it will depend on the number of windows being replaced, the type of windows you’re getting, and most importantly, your schedule. In most cases, you can have all new windows in your home in one day. However, every project is different, so it could take longer.
What windows are best for homes in Florida?
That’s a great question. Since most areas of Florida are prone to hurricanes,impact resistant windows will offer the most protection from storm damage. In most cases when you have these types of windows installed you don’t need hurricane shutters. So, if you have all of your windows replaced with impact resistant windows you won’t need any hurricane shutters. If you don’t replace all of your windows with impact resistant windows, then you’ll need to shutter the ones you didn’t replace.
What are some other benefits of new windows?
If you have old drafty windows in your home you most likely have a higher than average electric bill for the simple fact that your air conditioned air is literally going out of your windows. So, when you get new windows your home will be better insulated and your electric bill will go down. You’ll also have a more peaceful home, because you won’t hear very much noise from outside.
