They offer so many benefits for your home’s exterior, including protection from the elements, intruders, & pests, curb appeal & resale value, insulation to improve your home’s energy efficiency, and of course their primary function, which is offering ventilation & natural light for your home. Considering how important they are to your home’s exterior, keeping your windows in good repair is essential for the health of the property! Interested in learning a bit about the benefits that installing new replacement windows can provide for your home? Keep reading below for more information!
First off, one of the most important benefits replacement windows provide is a boost in home value! Old windows can reduce your home’s value, detracting from the aesthetic of the home, or even reducing it’s energy efficiency. Installing new windows not only improves your home’s value, it will also help you sell the home faster if you intend to put it on the market, as it’s one less thing potential buyers need to consider!
Leaky windows are oftentimes one of the largest culprits when it comes to energy loss, particularly in the chilly Portland, ME weather. By installing new windows, you will improve the seal in your frames, and address any hard-to-find leaks that may have been letting out your heat & AC. Furthermore, depending on which material you install, certain options will greatly reduce any potential energy loss, such as wood-frame windows which are known for their minimal heat transfer.
Another benefit of new replacement windows is that they will make your home safer! Old windows can sometimes have issues locking properly, which can be a safety issue, particularly on first story windows. By installing new windows, you will improve the security of your home, keeping unwanted guests where they belong!
Finally, one major drawback of old windows that many homeowners tend to overlook is the amount of noise pollution they allow into your home. Particularly for homeowners living near major roadways, there is often a lot of ambient noise that finds its way through small leaks in your windows. By replacing the units, you will notice a major reduction in the noise that makes its way into your home, improving the comfort of your residence!
