What do your home’s windows say about its value or design? Are they energy-efficient?

Beautiful windows should complement your home’s design, rather than distract from its beauty. Even if they look fine, they might be costing you extra money in energy bills, especially during the winter months. When it’s time to sell, prospective buyers don’t want windows that are old, inefficient or unsightly. 

Let’s take a look at a few key features of replacement windows that increase your home’s value and save you money.

Energy Efficiency

Winter temperatures can bring mind-bogglingly high electricity bills that are often 2-3x what homeowners are accustomed to paying. 

Badly insulated windows are a leading cause of high electricity bills, as they allow a ton of generated heat to escape. This forces your heating system to run longer and harder to regulate the temperature of your home.

If it’s time to replace your windows, it’s important to invest in ENERGY-STAR, Low-E replacements. These windows can save you up to 15% on your energy bills every year, and they’re also better for the environment. It’s a win-win!

Style and Design

Did you know that choosing the wrong type of replacement window can actually negatively affect your home’s value?

Economy-grade windows will do little to improve your home’s energy efficiency. And they certainly won’t help your home’s aesthetics.

That’s why it’s so important to do careful research before choosing a contractor. The right window contractor will help you find windows that are both beautiful and high-performing.

To help you choose the best windows to suit your home, Stratton Exteriors offers single-hung, double-hung, full-screen, half-screen, narrow frame, awning, bay and casement windows. At Stratton Exteriors, we believe in providing our clients with the best, and that’s why we offer only the highest-quality custom-made Alside vinyl replacement windows.

Form and Function

As with most items found around the home, as your windows age, they begin to lose some of their functionality. Replacement windows offer you the opportunity to upgrade some amenities, like easy-to-open hinges and durable locks. Additionally, they can deliver crisper, cleaner lines that will make your house more visually stunning, even from the curb.

With so much advancement in technology over the years, you can now find materials that don’t need to be repainted. They also won’t tarnish over time, minimizing the amount of maintenance your windows require.

Replacement windows can be a great way to increase your home’s value, improve its comfort and upgrade its appearance.
