If you need replacement windows for your Portland, OR home, it’s best not to needlessly delay getting and installing them.
One reason some people drag their feet on changing their windows is the cost. It’s true that quality windows, especially if you’re buying a lot of them at one time, can cost a lot of money. But the thing is that you don’t have to do all of them in one go. If finances are an issue, you can replace your windows in stages. Focus on the ones that need to be replaced straight away and then do others as the funds become available.
Here’s a look at some of the reasons why you should never delay getting replacement windows.
Higher Energy Expenses
If your current windows are past their warranty period, you will start to see a decline in their performance. Your windows are designed to keep the air inside your home from seeping outside and the air outside your home from seeping inside. But older windows will provide less and less protection, and this will cost you. What you’ll start to see with your worn and torn windows are higher energy bills at the end of each month. So you’ll spend more money to cool your home in the spring and summer, and you’ll spend more money to warm your home in the fall and winter. This wasted energy will add up big time, which is why you should replace windows as needed.
Drop in Curb Appeal
Another problem you’ll encounter if you delay replacing your worn-out windows is a drop in curb appeal. While quality windows will increase your home’s curb appeal, windows that have seen better days will lower your home’s curb appeal. The problem with a lower curb appeal is that it will lower the valuation of your home. And since your home is likely your biggest investment, you’ll want to do everything you can to keep it in as good a shape as possible.
Compromised Interior Comfort
If your windows are allowing air to leak inside or outside of your home, then the interior temperature in your home will be all over the place. In other words, some rooms will be cooler or warmer than others. This isn’t an ideal situation. You can, however, fix such issues with quality windows.
Could Create Other Problems
If you have windows that are allowing water to get in, this water could find its way behind your walls or even under your flooring. This will be problematic because this water will eventually lead to mold or mildew, and it will also eventually cause damage. The cost to fix this damage, not to mention the possible health risks, will be of the eye-watering variety.
