Three Questions to Ask Before You Buy New Home Windows
You likely have many reasons for replacing your home’s old windows. From improving the energy efficiency of your home to upgrading its external features before a sale, you may know exactly what benefits high-quality replacement windows offer for you. While these are all excellent reasons, prior to completing your purchase, ask yourself these three questions before you buy new windows:
1. Do you have to replace every window?
You might not need to replace every window in your home at once. Instead of undergoing an extensive full replacement project, you could only need to replace one or two drafty windows at first. Some homeowners are hesitant to put down a hefty investment at one time for new windows, which is why they elect to undergo the renovation over time. Concentrate on the windows or areas of your home that need the most work and start there. Replacing one or two windows every few months may make the process easier for you and your wallet.

2. What about your home’s aesthetics?
Before you jump on the replacement window bandwagon, make sure that the style will match your home’s current aesthetics. The National Association of Realtors’ 2016 Cost Versus Value study found that homeowners get back about 73 percent of their initial replacement window investment during a sale. You don’t want to make any decisions that could lessen this value later on. Even if you don’t intend to sell your home, you don’t want your windows to look starkly different than the rest of your home’s exterior. Take time to compare and contrast different colors, materials and styles before you buy.
3. How durable are these windows?
In Florida, you must replace your home’s windows with impact-resistant models that will remain durable with whatever weather comes your way. When a strong tropical storm rolls in, you don’t want to worry that your new windows will break with flying debris or leak due to heavy rains. Therefore, before you decide to buy, make sure you purchase impact-resistant windows that will keep you, your family and your home safe from the unpredictable weather.
