Homeowners are turning to custom window installation more than ever before.
Many newer homes - and even some older ones - have windows that are not stock sizes. Rather than have their homes altered to fit those standard windows, they reach out to a company that can perform custom installations. The end results are windows that fit their exact needs, look great on the home, and function as needed.
However, before you reach out to a company that does custom window installation, you need to understand exactly what this entails. In fact, you probably have a lot of unanswered questions at this point. Letâ€™s go over them!
How Can I Tell If My Windows Need to be Replaced?
Window installation contractors can point out many signs that your windows are no longer functioning properly.
For example, if you canâ€™t see out of them â€“ and theyâ€™re clean â€“ then you more than likely have a leaky seal thatâ€™s causing them to fog up on the inside. This means that something is very wrong with them, and they need to be replaced.
In addition, things like cracks in the window panes and in the frames, windows that no longer stay open properly, and those that gap at the top when the bottom segment is opened, are all additional signs that itâ€™s time to start getting quotes from window installation companies.
New Window Installation Cost
Youâ€™re probably asking, how much does window installation cost? There is no quick answer to that question. The average cost for window installation depends on many different factors. The size of the windows, how customized the replacement frames and panes are, and how many windows need to be replaced all factor into the cost of window installation.
On top of this, if the walls around your window frames need to be repaired, then that will add on to the bill as well. The best way to find out about window installation cost is by contacting a custom window installation company, like us, and have someone come out to inspect your windows and give you an estimate.
Can I Have Only Some of My Windows Replaced?
In general, window installation costs vary considerably, so itâ€™s important to note that if you have a small budget and only a few faulty windows, that you might think that itâ€™s possible to only have some of them replaced. This is a reasonable line of thinking, but it does lead to another problem.
Trying to save money on window installation prices in this manner will work, but eventually, all of those windows will need to be replaced. When one window breaks, cracks, or fails, all of the others tend to follow suit.
After all, windows have age limits, just like siding, appliances, and just about everything else in and on your home. Itâ€™s easier to have all of your windows replaced at once, rather than doing it piecemeal. Plus, you wonâ€™t have to worry about which window is which down the line. All will be the same age.
What Does Custom Window Installation Entail?
Custom window installation includes a number of different things. The process begins with removing your current windows and their frames. Then, any repairs will be done (donâ€™t worry â€“ this is often included in the window installation cost estimate) since everything needs to be as perfect as possible before your new windows can be installed.
If the damage is left in place, those windows may not fit properly, and you run the risk of having them end up broken or cracked sooner than planned. Once the repairs are completed, itâ€™s time for your new windows to go in. Any custom adjustments or anything of that sort will be done before this stage is reached, so all that needs to happen is installation.
After that, you get to enjoy your new windows. Itâ€™s that simple! Before you can choose your new windows, you first need to pick the best local company for the job.
