You’ll know it’s time for replacement windows when yours start to give you trouble, or require more maintenance than you have the time or patience for. Other good indications that it’s time include feeling a draft through the frames and seeing condensation between the panes of glass.
When that day comes, you may struggle to determine which type of replacement windows are best for you. You have to think about style, color, energy efficiency, manufacturer and, of course, your budget.
Fortunately, all these decisions are easy when you choose the right Utah replacement window contractor.
Selecting a Replacement Window Style
Most Utah homeowners have the flexibility to choose from a variety of different window styles – rarely must you choose the same style as your existing models.
Homebuilders traditionally install single-hung or slider style windows. If you like the style you have now, you can replicate that with your replacements. But if you want something with more (or different) functionality, you can choose casement or awning styles, double-hung windows or even a tilt-and-turn window design.
Choosing Your Replacement Window Materials
You have a wealth of material options to choose from, depending on your goals, including aluminum, vinyl, fiberglass, wood-clad or composite materials.
Aluminum offers a sleek, low-profile frame that works exceptionally well with a modern or contemporary home design. Vinyl is cost-effective, flexible and virtually maintenance-free. Fiberglass is as energy-efficient as it is durable.
If you like the classic, elegant look and feel of wood, wood-clad windows may be the best option for you. With an exterior cladding of aluminum, vinyl or fiberglass, you will enjoy the highly sought-after visual appeal of a traditional wood design with a durable, low-maintenance exterior.
