A window replacement is mostly a straightforward process. The professional installers visit the home, remove the existing windows from it, and install the made-to-order replacement units. However, many homeowners have preconceived notions about this home improvement project that prevents them from making informed decisions.
Renewal by Andersen® of New Jersey-New York Metro would like to set the record straight by debunking some of these myths about window replacement.
Myth 1: Summer Is the Best Time For Window Replacement
This is one of the most common misconceptions, but sadly, many homeowners believe it to be true. Removing the existing windows from the openings during this time means the heat from the outside will find its way inside the home. Indoor comfort is compromised, which can lead to higher energy bills. This is why we recommend pursuing the project during the fall. The weather is not too hot or too cold, allowing installers to push through with the project without any hassles.
Myth 2: The Project Can Cause Damage to the Rest of the Home
Many homeowners also subscribe to the belief that a sliding window replacement involves damaging certain components to give way for the replacement units, further lengthening the work needed to be done. Of course, this is not true at all. The right window installer will know how to complete the job while creating minimal impact on the home. At Renewal by Andersen, our team will allay your worries about the project by making sure your home is construction-proof.
Myth 3: New Windows Won’t Boost the Home’s Energy Efficiency
Some people may find the idea of replacing windows to help lower energy bills surprising. This is especially true for those who have resided in the same home for a long time. This is worth noting because most of the drafts and wasted energy inside the home are lost through windows. Thanks to today’s technological advances, it’s now possible to obtain replacement units that feature components that help contribute to improving the home’s energy efficiency.
Don’t let these myths hinder you from getting your replacement double-hung, casement or bow and bay windows. At Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey-New York Metro, we are proud to own the entire window replacement process, and will only provide the most straightforward and transparent services.
