There aren’t too many home improvements on the east coast that can have such a broad impact on a home in Virginia than window replacements. Ranging from improved resale value to improved efficiency with energy – getting rid of all of those old windows and getting a house fitted with replacement windows is a smart move to transform your Virginia home. This is certainly a good idea when you consider that the weather in Virginia and the surrounding mountain regions throws everything at homeowners except the kitchen sink.
If the weather is bad enough, you might even see a flying kitchen sink. Replacement windows can help tame those elements – at least from getting inside the home.
The primary reasons that people opt for new windows in their Virginia homes is to improve the value and aesthetic appeal. With that new visual appeal a lot of comfort is added. What was once a very narrow renovation market with limited options is now booming thanks to technological advances in window installations. There are a lot of options to customize the look of windows from color to materials used. Gone are the days of having to deal with cumbersome, ugly storm windows. New double and triple pane windows compliments the design of specialized glass installations like bay windows.
Those new models all offer very affordable install pricing through Virginia contractors, they greatly improve your living space as more light can be let in (which gives the perception of having more space) and any type of window replacement is going to improve the energy efficiency in your home.
Of course the value is a big draw for homeowners who may be looking to sell their home. New windows in place of old windows certainly improve the value of your home. Those savings and visual appeal get passed onto a new home owner that doesn’t have to worry about putting in new windows anytime soon.
As mentioned, these high tech window replacements offer a lot of energy efficiency. That’s worth noting and emphasizing when you consider the climate of Virginia – particularly in the cold winter months. You’ll want to make sure you have windows in your home that can stand up against the harsh winds that can cut into a home. That cold can leech heat through poorly installed windows. Installing replacement windows in your Virginia home can save you as much as 10% or more on your heating costs depending on the quality of your current windows.
Old standard windows are a thing of the past. In Virginia, replacement windows are easy to customize and have tailor made to the specs of your home without worrying about extensive costs for custom window replacements. If your windows are aged, cracking, drafty or look like they were manufactured by a Geico caveman it’s probably time to look into some replacement windows.
