4 Benefits of Replacing and Upgrading Your Home's Windows



From 2013 to 2018, the window installation industry revenue grew at an annual rate of 3.4%, reaching approximately $4.7 billion.

Take a look at each window inside and outside your house, if they look worn down at all or have been sitting there for decades, it's time for an upgrade. Here are some of the main benefits of upgrading the windows around your home:


  • They will save you money -- New window units can help you save a significant amount of money. It might not seem like it right away, because you'll be spending money on something that you already have, but older, single-pane window units are often the source of up to 70% of your home's heat loss. Switching to energy-efficient products will help you keep the heat in (or out, depending on the season) and keep your finances in order. Additionally, since your home will look much better after you replace your window units, your home's resale value will increase, as well.

  • They will protect from severe weather -- Old window units cannot withstand the strong winds and constant weathering -- but newer, custom windows can. Upgraded window units are much more secure and durable than their older counterparts, so don't let your old units withstand even more damage and replace them as soon as you can.

  • No more regular maintenance -- You will likely never have to hassle with your new window units once installed, especially if they are fiberglass or composite units. This, again, will save you money, as well as plenty of time because you won't have to repaint those damaged frames anymore, either. Newer units are manufactured today with longevity and durability in mind -- so upgrading is a must. Contact a skilled window replacement service right away!

  • They will look nicer -- Don't forget about the most obvious benefit: new window units will drastically improve the look and feel of your home. Even if your old units don't look that bad from up close, they probably look dusty and foggy from afar. Upgrading with replacement units will help give your home that wonderful look you've been working towards.
