As a homeowner, replacing your windows can be a big investment,

but it’s also an important one. Not only can new windows make your home more energy-efficient and comfortable, but they can also add value to your property. In fact, according to Remodeling Magazine’s 2021 Cost vs. Value Report, homeowners can recoup an average of 72.3% of their investment in new windows when they sell their home.

But how do you ensure you’re getting the most value out of your replacement windows?

Here are some tips from the experts at S&S Remodeling.

Choose the Right Material

When it comes to replacement windows, there are several materials to choose from, including vinyl, wood, fiberglass, and aluminum. Each material has its own pros and cons, and the best one for your home will depend on your budget, style preferences, and performance needs.

Vinyl windows are affordable, low-maintenance, and energy-efficient, making them a popular choice for many homeowners. Wood windows, on the other hand, offer a classic, natural look that can enhance the beauty of your home. Fiberglass windows are strong and durable, while aluminum windows are lightweight and affordable.

Consider Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is another important factor to consider when choosing replacement windows. Look for windows with low U-factors and high Solar Heat Gain Coefficients (SHGCs), which indicate how well the window insulates against heat loss and gain. You can also look for windows with the ENERGY STAR label, which means they meet or exceed energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Invest in Professional Installation

Even the best replacement windows won’t perform as they should if they’re not installed properly. That’s why it’s important to invest in professional window installation from a reputable company like S&S Remodeling. Our team of experts has the knowledge, skills, and experience to ensure your windows are installed correctly and perform as they should.

Maintain Your Windows

Proper maintenance is also important for getting the most value out of your replacement windows. Keep your windows clean by washing them regularly with a mild soap and water solution. Check for any signs of damage, such as cracks or gaps, and repair them promptly to prevent air leaks and water infiltration.

By following these tips, you can ensure you’re getting the most value out of your replacement windows.

    Gavin Subers was excellent at reviewing our needs and recommended a Craftbuilt-Aristocrat retractable awning for our residence. We had the work completed in April and couldn't be happier. Joe Paris and his assistant (also named Joe) did a great job on the installation. I highly recommend S & S Remodeling!

    Would recommend S & S highly. Being a senior citizen and not knowing what is what. I needed a new roof and Zach worked with me and his crew did a phenomenal job. Thank you so much again Zach. Will be calling in the future to get more work done. God Bless, Frank and Ann Marie Dunlap Siermine.
