It’s hard to know which windows are the right ones to choose for your home, but the professional replacement window contractors at Anderson Exteriors in Minnesota can help.
Our experienced team can assess your home’s needs and help you take into consideration everything from energy savings to your budget. We’ve put together this guide to walk you through some of the most important considerations when it comes to choosing new replacement windows. Check out this guide and then contact our team to get started on your replacement windows.
1. Your Home’s Style
It’s important to consider the architectural style of your home when choosing a window. For example, if you have an older home such as a Sears Craftsman home or a Victorian Gothic home, you’ll want to install grid windows that match the original style of your home. For a more modern home, consider something more minimalist with clean lines like a double-hung window. Whether you are looking for casement, glider, or bay windows, we’ve got you covered.
2. Window Frame Color
After you’ve decided on a window frame style, you’ll need to decide on a color. Many window manufacturers give homeowners the option to choose different colors for the interior side and the exterior. You may also be able to choose from natural wood grains in a number of colors and stains or go with a paint color.
While you might be tempted to just go with what you had before, it could be worthwhile to consider changing things up a bit with a new color design. One look that’s trending these days is a darker window frame on both the home’s interior and exterior. You could go with a black window frame or something in a darker jewel tone if you’re feeling adventurous. Be sure to ask your window replacement contractor for images of the product in action to get an idea of how a look will work for your home.
3. Ease of Maintenance
Some types of windows are easier to clean than others. If you’re looking for a certain style of window, it could be worth it to have to put a little more work in to get your windows looking great. However, some homeowners want to go with the simplest possible solution to cut down on the hassle when they’re cleaning up around the house. Vinyl windows are hands-down the easiest windows to keep clean, When it comes to window design, double-hung windows are the best style for easy cleaning, with sliding windows coming in a close second.
4. Energy Savings
Today’s windows are much more energy-efficient than the windows of the past. In fact, depending on your energy-saving goals, we’ve got a wide range of energy-efficient options to choose from. Modernizing the windows in your home can significantly increase energy efficiency in your home. Our double-pane and triple-pane technology can block most of the sun’s rays. This protects your home’s interior from fading and sun damage while at the same time lowering your energy costs annually.
A good warranty is a must-have when purchasing a replacement window. Even when you’re buying your replacement windows from a trusted window manufacturer and having them installed by an experienced window replacement contractor, you need to know you’re protected if there’s a problem. While you’re looking into new windows, ask your window replacement contractor about the type of warranty that comes with each window. Find out what’s covered, how long the warranty lasts, and if there are any special stipulations for window maintenance you need to know about.
6. Brand and Material
We’ve got a window brand for every budget and style. Our experts can help you choose the perfect window to meet your expectations. Depending on your home’s needs, you may prefer wood, extruded aluminum, fiberglass, or vinyl windows. Choose from Marvin, Hayfield, or Parco windows. All of our windows are backed with manufacturers’ warranties.
