As a homeowner, you know how important it is to maintain your home throughout the years to make sure that its value doesn’t decrease, and so that you can rely on optimal performance and protection for your home throughout the decades. Replacing some parts of your home might also be necessary as time goes on.

10 Tips to Prepare Your Home for the Winter

If you are like most people, you probably haven’t given much thought to your home’s windows. But there are actually a variety of benefits to investing in replacement windows for your home. Some of the most notable benefits include:

Energy Efficiency

  • One of the biggest benefits of investing in replacement windows is that you can increase your home’s energy efficiency enough to save literally hundreds of dollars on your energy bills throughout any given year.
  • Newer windows are typically equipped with technology that helps to keep the heat in during winter and out during summer so you’ll notice more comfort while spending time at home as well.

Less Mold and Mildew

  • Another great thing about new replacement windows is that they will keep moisture from building up around the windows and on the curtains which will minimize any mold or mildew that likes to make its way into your home. In fact, new windows can keep the inside of your home drier overall, which puts less wear and tear on your heating and air conditioning systems.

Improved Eye Appeal

  • It doesn’t take much to switch your old windows out with replacement windows of a different shape and size. This makes it easy to dramatically change the look and feel of your home.

 

Some great options include:

  • Double Hung – has two sashes that slide up and down.
  • Casement – vertically hinged and opens/closes like a door.
  • Picture – large, fixed windows that don’t open.
  • Sliding – moves on tracks placed on the top and bottom of the window.

Another example would be switching from square to oval windows, giving your home a modern update that compliments contemporary or eclectic décor within the home. Changing the windows will change the lighting in the home, too. Lighting will alter the way each particular room feels and functions so, choosing the right style for your home or an individual room is an important decision that Pro Roofing and Siding can help you with.
