When it comes to upgrading windows, many homeowners fall into two categories. On the one hand, some prefer replacing windows all at once. On the other hand, some do so in batches, replacing one or few at a time.
In today’s post, Sentry Exteriors, one of the leading window and roofing contractors in the local area, explains which of the two strategies makes the most sense.
On Replacing Windows One or Few at a Time
Many homeowners believe this strategy is guaranteed not to cost too much. Choosing this instead of a one-time replacement of all existing windows, however, is not a good option. Imagine this situation: you have a few of your current windows replaced on the first month and then decided to do so on the remaining ones a few months after. When that time comes, you could be looking at a project that is more expensive than the initial one.
In that same situation, say you hired contractor A for the initial project and contractor B for the next. Are you sure that all of the replacement windows are installed correctly? You can easily notice this if you still have comfort issues and experience drafts in some of the rooms in your home.
On Replacing Windows All At Once
Window and gutter companies like ours recommend replacing windows all at once and for good reason. A single point of contact for this home improvement project is better than working with two or even multiple contractors on the other option. With that, you can have peace of mind knowing the replacements are installed with quality workmanship in mind.
Upon replacing windows all at once, you can easily feel the change in your home’s comfort levels. For the first time in a long while, you don’t rely too much on your HVAC system just to meet your home’s heating and cooling requirements. With these new units functioning better than your old windows, you can achieve better energy efficiency, leading to more savings on your utility bill.
