The Biggest Window Replacement Options

By May 6, 2019No Comments

It’s possible, and even quite likely, that you haven’t gone through Holladay, UT window replacement before. If that’s the case and you find yourself in need of new windows, you might not really know where to start. It’s in your best interest to find a reputable window company to help you with the process from start to finish. You will get the advice you need with the process the whole way through. However, before you begin, it’s good to know more about some of the decisions you will have to make. Here are some of the biggest options you will think through as you take the project on for your home.

The Frame Material Option

One of the first things you will decide is what material you want the frame to be made out of. Most homeowners today choose vinyl because it is less expensive, but just as energy efficient, if not more so. Vinyl also holds high insulating qualities and it doesn’t have to be maintained through painting and scraping. It pays homeowners back fast since it lowers energy bills and doesn’t really cost a lot to begin with. While vinyl is very popular, it’s not the only option and there are others to consider with your window professional’s help.

The Color Option

Once you decide on the material for the frames, you’ll want to think about what color you want on them. White is the most popular because it goes with anything and is a timeless classic that never goes out of style. However, black is also a very popular color right now that has high contrasting qualities on lighter homes. There are plenty of other options to consider, including matching your home’s color or contrasting in a similar tone.

The Glass Options

Glass options, or glass packs, as they are often called, have a lot of choices within them. You’ll have to decide if you want to go with the standard double pane glass, or if you want triple pane options. You’ll also have to consider if you want the traditional air between the panes of glass or if inert gas fillings for further efficiency are better for you. There are also coatings, like low-E, grids, and plenty of other choices.
