If you have a long list of home improvement projects you’d like to complete on your Connecticut home, replacing your windows might not be at the top, and we understand. The windows that came with your home seem good enough, and there are projects that may seem a bit more fun to complete first. However, build-grade windows are not built to last and are made with low-grade materials. At Clinton Glass, we encourage you to move replacement windows to the top of your list. Read on to learn why.
They Let in Drafts
As we mentioned, builder-grade windows are made of inferior products. Unfortunately, this means they are notorious for letting in drafts. You might not notice in the summer, but as soon as the weather cools down, you’ll start to realize your windows are leaking cold air right into your home. When your old window insulation wears out and the materials around the glass start to break down, your house will remain cold no matter how high you turn up the thermostat.
They Don’t Match Your Style
Another downside to build-grade windows is that they are generally one size fits all. Typically, a builder will use the same type of windows for an entire neighborhood, whether they fit your style or not. Replacing your windows gives you the opportunity to customize your space with windows that are more your style. Whether you want to change the size, shape, or direction they open, your new windows will liven things up and boost your curb appeal at the same time.
They Cost You More Money over Time
Finally, your builder-grade windows could be costing you money by raising your energy bills each month. So, if you’re hesitant to replace your windows because of the cost, just know that they will eventually pay for themselves in energy savings. Energy-efficient windows are better for the environment, will make your home more comfortable, and will save you money!
