Pricing is typically at the top of the list for homeowners evaluating the next home improvement project. Unless you currently work in the home improvement industry, understanding pricing can be daunting for most.   

When you are considering window replacement, many factors can affect the overall pricing.

We have a few scenarios that can help homeowners better scope their project budget when ready to replace their windows. 

  1. Do you need to replace just a single window or a few that have some glaring issues like condensation, damaged sealant, a broken windowpane, or problems with the trim?  
  2. Is your home older, and the goal is to replace all the windows eventually, but not all at once?  
  3. Are you ready to upgrade your home's energy efficiency and curb appeal?  

At Window Nation, we customize every window to fit the exact specifications of your home - just the way YOU want them.  

We will not use stock size windows, irregular windows, or windows that were made for someone else's home. 

Understanding your goals will ultimately help you scope a realistic budget with your window replacement company.

And, with so many fun style options available today, you can blend functional window replacement needs with some significant improvement in curb appeal  

Here are a few additional considerations when planning your window replacement budget:  

  • Material - choose from high-grade vinyl, fiberglass or low-maintenance aluminum-clad wood 
  • Style - Choose from double-hung, sliding windows, casements, awning windows, hopper windows, bay or bow windows or unique shaped windows

Are you still living with the windows that came with your house? Do you feel the cold air passing through when temperatures begin to drop? Are you tired of putting plastic on every window, every year–sometimes twice a year–and losing the ability to watch the snow drifting down on your yard covered in a beautiful layer of white?

What are some of the benefits of brand new windows?
When deciding whether or not it is time to get new windows, you have to ask yourself the question, “What will new windows do for me?”
  • First off, those new windows are going to keep heat in during the winter and heat out during the summer and that is going to help your bottom line.

  • New windows are also more convenient. If you have windows that stick or that don’t stay up, you’re really going to notice the difference new windows will make.

  • If you have old windows that are hard to lock shut–or don’t lock shut at all, your new windows will make a better seal and offer more security. That good seal is another way you’ll keep energy bills lower, and when your windows lock right, they make it hard for a burglar to break in.

  • More than anything else, you’re going to notice how new windows will open up the spaces in your home and provide the perfect amount of light to bring life into living spaces. After all, they’re called “living” spaces for a reason. Those are the spaces where life happens.

Having air and water leaking through your window can be hazardous for the structure of your house. Seeing these leaks may seem obvious on a big scale but even the smallest leak can damage the window frame and start to create rot. It is also easier to fix a leak if you catch it in the early stages. Once you have determined there is a leak, you can call in a professional to help you establish the extent of the damage and set up a plan for repairs.

These small window leaks can let in cold air while you are trying to heat your house. They can let in moisture that will start to eat away at your window frame. Repairing the leak quickly and efficiently is the best choice. Even if it means a higher upfront cost for replacement windows. It will save you more in the long run.

There are two ways that you can detect these leaks on your own. There is a home air pressure test you can do and a DIY energy audit. These tests can be performed by you. They are a simple way to detect a small leak and start working on a solution.

Air Pressure Test: Start by sealing up your home. Lock windows and doors. Close vents and dampers. Turn of any exhaust fans. Light a candle and bring it around your home to find where the drafts are coming from by watching which way the flame moves.

DIY Energy Audit: Check your windows to make sure they have a tight seal and do not rattle or shake. Make sure that the frame around your window and door is sealed as well. You should not be able to see through the frame. Inspect the window panes for any cracks, even the small ones. Make sure windows lock properly and slide smoothly.

After performing these checks around your home, set up a plan for action. Call a professional window installation company to help you make your windows leak free. Having a home with energy efficient windows is ideal for saving money. With today’s economy, every penny counts. Start saving money today, give Window Nation a call and set up an appointment to start making your home energy efficient.

It’s time to complete that list of home winterizing. There’s no more putting it off. If you don’t get it done now, you will be trying to do it when it is bitter cold and windy or even worse, snowing! No matter what you have on your list, be sure to check out the following tips to see if you need to add these to it.

Clean water drainage system. Seems odd to think of spring rain now, but if your gutters and water removal system are not working properly, the spring rain will reek havoc on your yard and maybe even leak into your basement! Your gutters could have a lot of leaves and dirt in them. These solids can freeze with water and weigh down your gutters, causing them to sag or break. Check all your downspouts for any blockage. Make sure that all the connections on the gutter to the downspouts and the downspouts to your water drainage systems are snug and secure. If your gutter and drainage system are clean and working at optimum levels, the spring rain will be a welcomed sight.

Winterize outside and exposed plumbing. If you have any exposed pipes, they need to be drained and filled with antifreeze. If you have an outside hose hook up (silcock or hose bibb) or exterior faucet, these also need to be drained. Using an insulated cover for the the silcock can make a huge difference to keep cold, winter air out of your water supply.

Insulate. Insulation can be key to saving you money in many ways. Check your attic to see how much insulation you have keeping your warm air in. Opinions differ about the exact amount recommended for your home. 12” of insulation should provide sufficient protection from unwanted air exchange. Check with your local department of energy for their specific recommendations for your area and style of home.

Insulate your water heater. Wrap your water heater with insulation or a water heater blanket. This is a quick and simple task that will start saving you money throughout the year.

Seal any leaks around your windows and doors. Windows and doors can be a common spot for unwanted air exchanges to occur. If you can feel the cold air coming in around either of them, then they are demanding your attention. Here are a few things you can do to stop this air exchange:

  • Replace or repair any damaged or missing weather stripping.

  • Caulk any visible cracks in the unit or around it in the frame or trim

  • Tighten any screws in hinges or hardware that have loosened up

  • Use expanding foam in any holes or visible large cracks

Replace your windows or doors. If your windows and doors are beyond repairing, then you should consider replacing them. New replacement vinyl windows will be more energy efficient as well as update the style of your home. Swapping out your old entrance doors for new door units will make these areas a beautiful new shield against the cold air. Doors and windows are a crucial and beautiful part of your home. Unfortunately, if they are not weather tight then they are a huge factor in your heat loss.

Before the bitter cold hits, get your home prepared. Utilize these tips to get your home ready for the cold weather of winter. Don’t delay, winterize your home TODAY!

Windows are a very important part of your home; they give your home personality and allow your home to be filled with light and energy. However, they can also allow for your hard earned money to fly right out of them, if they are older and not energy efficient. Having the right windows installed into your home that are aesthetically pleasing, functional, and energy efficient will increase the curb appeal of your home and save you money in energy costs throughout the entire year.

The experts at Window Nation want to help you understand how windows can really help to save you money and increase the comfort of your home for you and your family.

Benefits of installing energy efficient windows into your home include:

  • Lowering both heating and cooling costs. New ENERGY STAR windows will prevent either cold or warm air from leaving your home, depending on the season. Less energy will be used to heat or cool the home.

  • Making your home more eco-friendly, with new ENERGY STAR windows will also reduce your carbon footprint by minimizing the amount of resources you use to heat and cool your home to a comfortable level.

  • Protection for the most important features of your home. This includes things like paintings and pictures hanging on your wall, your furniture, and flooring. ENERGY STAR windows have a special coating on them that prevent UV light from entering your home and over time damaging the items located within.

  • ENERGY STAR windows allow you to stay more comfortable within your home, no matter what the temperature is outside. The interior panel of ENERGY STAR windows stays warmer than other standard windows, keeping you and your home warmer during the winter. And during the summer they work to reduce the amount of heat allowed into your home, without stopping the light from getting into your home and brightening it up.

Along with being functional and cost saving to your wallet, adding new ENERGY STAR windows can add style and personality to your home.
