More About Window Replacements

Whether you are a new homeowner or have been a homeowner for a while, more than likely windows will need to be replaced in the home at some point.  It is something that may be put off or just ignored until something is wrong with a window.  Typically what triggers the need for new windows is when a problem becomes obvious like a window leak, or condensation is forming on the windows.  Window replacement is a big investment in the home and does require a time investment as far as figuring out the type of windows and features to get.  Chicago Window Pros is regarded as the Chicago area’s top window replacement company providing a large assortment of high-quality windows at affordable prices.

Generic Windows vs. Brand Name Windows

You can save money with generic or less known manufacturers of windows.   The windows may last a while and provide a solution right away that is affordable.  Generic or a lesser known type of window manufacturer will basically perform the same way as the more reputable big brand windows do like letting in light and opening to allow airflow in. The difference may be the longevity of the windows.

Chicago window replacement companies with known brand names like Pella, Andersen, Marvin and windows tend to have better warranties.

Window Frame Materials Are Vital

Homeowners concerned about maintaining the visual appeal of their own home will often reject the idea of installing vinyl windows because they prefer wood windows.  Vinyl framing materials protect against energy loss, do not require painting or sealing and are more affordable than wood windows.  Fiberglass-framed windows are far stronger than vinyl windows.

Double-Pane Windows are the Standard Window Type

Double-Pane windows consist of two sheets of glass that have air or gas like argon gas or krypton gas in the middle. A double-pane window can increase energy efficiency by nearly 100-percent.

Enlarging Window Size

It’s easier to order smaller sized windows than enlarging a window opening. But if you would like to enlarge a window opening, it is possible.

When enlarging a window opening up to eight inches horizontally, you can easily install one new vertical stud to either side of the window to accommodate the new window.
