What are the benefits of replacing my windows?

There are many benefits that come with replacing your old windows. Listed below are some of the perks that come with new windows:

  1. Ease of use: Older windows can be stiff/warped and therefore do not properly function as originally designed. New windows will operate smoothly and come with warranty to ensure the windows work as intended for years to come.

  2. Improves the Curb Appeal of your home: Wooden windows with exposure to direct sunlight and weather conditions have likely had their frames chipped, cracked or rotted through defacing the beauty of your home’s curb appeal. Replacing these older windows with new, modern styled vinyl windows that will last longer, look better and function perfectly improving your home’s appeal and its resale value.

  3. Visibility: When the seals of your older windows fail, the windows become foggy with a haze appearing between both glass panes, obscuring visibility. Replacing these windows allows for you to enjoy a clearer, sharper and more vibrant view.

  4. Energy Efficiency: New windows purchased at TriCity Windows and Doors are all energy star certified and will save you your hard earned money by reducing your utility bills in the long run, keeping your home’s temperature moderated and cozy all year round. Energy efficient windows also include multi-layered UV protection to prevent the sun-bleaching of your furniture by repelling sun rays and the heat that comes with it.
