When looking at window replacement for your home you have many options in terms of design, colour, style, and functionality. But one question we get often is: Should I replace all my windows at once?
The short answer is that you do not need to replace all of your windows at the same time, but there may be benefits in doing so. Buying new windows is an investment in your home, and you shouldn’t sacrifice quality, style preference, or performance in an attempt to meet a timeline.
Here are four factors to keep in mind when deciding on which windows replace:
The overall cost of the project needs to be taken into consideration. Price per window will decrease when replacing multiple windows at the same time, if your project is keeping the window replacement team busy for the entire day (usually a minimum of 6-8 windows) you should be receiving the best value. On the other hand, if you are looking to replace a window or two, you may be paying a premium.
Maintaining the aesthetics of your home is very important, especially if you are considering only replacing a few windows at a time. People will opt into replacing an entire side or one level of their home to maintain a uniformed look versus randomly choosing windows to replace.
If replacing windows for the entire home is in your budget but you are concerned about the inconvenience it may cause to you and your family, do not be alarmed. Replacing windows for an entire house can be done much quicker than most renovation projects such as a bathroom or kitchen remodel. A professional team of window installers can replace the windows in an average sized home in two to three days, this includes cleaning up daily and the removal of the old windows and all garbage.
One big advantage of replacing all your windows at once is that you will fully take advantage of the benefits of the new windows including improved energy efficiency, enhanced safety and security, improved functionality, enriched aesthetics, and an increase in the overall value of your home.
Ultimately the decision on if you should replace all your windows at once is up to you and your situation. If you have a damaged window or just a few that are in bad shape you can choose to replace those individually, but if you are in the position to complete the project all at once you will benefit from all of the advantages that window replacement has to offer and heighten the overall beauty of your home.
