Baltimore Energy Efficient Windows

If your home’s windows are deteriorating and need replacement, it’s worth it to consider replacing them right away. Today’s high-quality, energy-efficient windows far exceed the products engineered in the past, and can offer a broad range of important benefits that will enhance your home’s performance, aesthetics, and boost its overall value.

At ACM Window and Door Design, we understand how intimidating window replacement can be. Any home improvement project—whether it’s a minor cosmetic repair or an intensive renovation—is an important investment in our future, and anything less than a highly successful outcome is simply unacceptable.

One of our homeowner’s greatest concerns when it comes to window replacement is whether it’s necessary or not. After all, replacing your windows is a big decision and not one to be taken lightly. However, when it is time to replace old and deteriorating windows, acting quickly and effectively can be one of the best decisions you can make to add considerable value to your investment, your home, and your lifestyle. In this article, we’ll help you learn some of the facts about replacement windows and when to know when it’s time to invest in new ones.

Is it Time for New Windows?

If you’re wondering whether your home needs new energy-efficient windows or if it can take another year (or two or three) before going through with the replacement process, these questions will help you to steer you in the right direction.

  • Are Your Current Windows Single-Pane? Upgrading to double-pane windows is highly recommended by experts across the board. If you have single-pane windows installed in your home, consider replacing them with a double-pane model for a dramatic improvement in indoor comfort, heightened security and safety, and much lower energy bills.

  • Are Your Window Frames Water-Damaged or Rotting? Wood windows require an extensive amount of maintenance to keep up—especially if they’re made with older materials. If the wood on your windows is rotting out and water damaged, repairing them might not be the best choice—and it’s safe to say that it’s probably time for new ones. The benefits of replacing them with vinyl, fiberglass, or another materials is the huge reduction in maintenance requirements and often better energy-efficiency, among other perks.

  • Are Your Windows Operable? Can you open and close your windows easily, or is it a struggle? If your windows get stuck in an open or a closed position and you’ve given up trying to operate them, it could be time for new windows.

  • Are They Attractive? Ugly windows are an eyesore—and do nothing to help the aesthetics of your home’s interior or exterior appeal. If you’re sick and tired of your old, tired, out-of-style windows, replacing them with newer, modern ones are a surefire way to dramatically enhance the beauty of your home.

  • Can You Look Outside? If you can’t see out your windows due to fogged up, scratched, or cloudy windows? Replacing the glass with high-quality window panes is an instant and effective solution to improve your view.

  • Are You Sick of Maintenance? Maintaining your home’s windows can be a chore—especially if your products are made with materials that are hard to clean, easily water-damaged, and prone to fading from the sun. If you’re sick of your window’s constant upkeep, consider replacing them with better materials that aren’t so high-maintenance.
