Don’t get caught in a pinch regarding new windows in Malibu, CA home. It’s a given what the benefits of new windows can do for your home’s value in the long term and for your comfort in the short term. But it begs the question about whether you should repair or replace your windows. There may be benefits to both options and you, as an educated consumer, need to do what’s right (as opposed to what’s “cheapest) for your home.
Considering we’re the pros in the replacement window business, you’d think it was a given that we’d lean towards the purchase of new windows. That being said, before you start shopping for new windows, you need to know what can be fixed or done to make the windows you have now more energy-efficient. Consumer Reports whose mission in life is to set you on the straight and narrow with the money you spend and things you purchase, feels that “replacing your old windows with new ones will lower your energy bills but it may take awhile to recoup your costs.” Which is why we always stress that window upgrades are an investment as much as they are a re-do.
A Once Over
At Concept Windows and Doors, we encourage you to give your windows a thorough once over. Inspect your windows for decay. Look for signs of water that may have penetrated around the frame. Is there condensation between the layers of insulated glass? If so you’ll need to replace the sash or the window. A pro might be able to repair rot, jammed sashes, and broken parts, whereas you may come up short. And above all, are the repairs a temporary fix to a long-term problem.
All About the Vinyl
Vinyl windows are our specialty. Vinyl windows don’t require any kind of maintenance, just some light cleaning for which any household cleaner can be used. Aside from them being cost efficient, vinyl windows became popular because of their long life span. They can be painted or polished to look like wood because of the addition of sawdust in the vinyl making process.
