CONSIDERATIONS WHEN REPLACING WINDOWS

Replacing your windows for function, style or necessity is a large task and there are numerous considerations to make when choosing the new window. If you're retrofitting your existing window (just replacing the inside so to speak and leaving the frame) there will be different considerations than if you're replacing the entire window including frame.

Regardless, the first thing you'll want to decide is whether the window will open, or not, and if so, how it will open - outward (up, down, left or right) or via sliding a pane to reveal a screen? Each has their pros and cons, and one might fit better for your needs than the other. Next, you'll need to determine what material your new window will be constructed from. Vinyl is great because it tends to be a very low maintenance option that stands up to any weather and is usually most cost effective. Other options include wood, aluminum and fiberglass constructions as well as hybrids like aluminum covered wood, etc. Aside from those considerations, you'll want to investigate colour, style (grills, bars, etc.) and energy efficiency.
