For many homeowners, replacing their current windows with new ones is a great home improvement project to tackle. However, they have different strategies on how to go about it. Some prefer to replace one or few at a time while others choose to replace all units at once. Today, we explain which of the two strategies make more sense.
Replacing Windows One or Few at a Time
Many homeowners find this strategy effective mainly because they believe it is not heavy on the wallet. However, this may not be a great option for various reasons. Imagine a situation where the contractor offers a customer the best labor pricing provided that the latter orders at least five windows. If the customer decides to only have two windows replaced today and have the other three done next month, the succeeding project could cost a little more.
Apart from this, some of the replacement windows will look, operate and feel different than the current ones. It’s also possible for the manufacturer to make a change to the unit model so this particular strategy will result in them being similar, but not quite the same.
Replacing Windows All at Once
Doing the project in one go, meanwhile, has its benefits. For one, it is a matter of efficiency. As much as they try to make the process as simple as possible, most window contractors would have to make at least two home visits. The first one is for taking measurements and the second one for the installation. Once all the windows have been replaced, then everything is done.
With newly installed windows, homeowners can easily feel the change indoors, especially when it comes to the home’s comfort levels. The use of the HVAC system for heating and cooling is lessened, which can lead to a dip in energy consumption and more savings in the utility bills. Plus, these new units look beautiful and operate as intended.
