The windows of your home are similar to the eyes on a person’s face – they are the first to be noticed. They provide an impression of the overall condition of your home. If they are more than fifteen years old, they are most likely scratched, chipped, or “fogged,” or may be wrought with tiny cracks that will become larger over time. Old glass windows can also retain large amounts of dirt and grime that cannot be easily cleaned and older homes may have poorly constructed, shoddy or mismatched windows due to prior low-quality efforts.
One of the key ways to enhance the look of your home is with glass replacement windows. Whether you are planning to put your home up for sale now that the existing residential market is coming out of its slump, or you are simply looking for a way to freshen the look of your home’s exterior, the best way to do this is through new windows using an expert glass replacement specialist.
When driving through neighborhoods, potential buyers compare homes to one another. If both you and your neighbor’s homes were on the market, even if you had a porch and your neighbor didn’t or you had a three-car garage and your neighbor only had a two-car, if your neighbor’s windows were replaced with modern fresh new ones, and your windows were shoddy and weathered, chances are your neighbor’s home would be chosen over yours.
Similar to needing to replace old and non-working appliances like washing machines, toasters and refrigerators, as well as old flooring, counter tops, and the shingles on your roof, the windows of your home need to be replaced as well, especially if your windows are extremely weathered, falling apart and rotting. Nothing says a home is in ill-repair like window frames and sills which are peeling, blistering, flaking and fading.
Additionally, old and outdated windows, especially those windows composed of multiple smaller glass windows inside the frame, can greatly benefit from window glass replacement. Those smaller pieces of glass should be replaced with a new larger glass window to provide it with a more modern and updated look. Doing this will also allow more light inside your home as well dramatically improve the overall exterior appearance of your home. Glass replacement for your timeworn windows can be the facelift your home is in desperate need of.
