Most homeowners looking to replace windows in their homes know the benefits new windows offer. However, we’re often asked if it’s best to replace them all at once or if they’ll see the same benefits by replacing them a few at a time. Of course, until you have all new windows, you won’t see all the energy saving benefits, but, there are other reasons replacing them all at once makes more sense than a few at a time.
Lower Cost Per Window
Replacement windows companies have various costs associated with your new windows. The two biggest are the cost of the windows and the cost of installation. Although the cost of the windows may not vary much whether you order three windows or 15, the installation costs the window company has does change. Most window companies send a crew to replace windows in a home and then after that job is complete, they go home. Just a few windows takes less time than a whole house but not enough less that they can go back to the shop, pick up another homeowner’s windows and install them. So, they may charge more per window when there are only a handful of windows than if it’s an entire day (or two) job.
When you replace windows in your home, you improve its curb appeal. Depending on your new window color and style, your windows may look significantly difference. This will detract from your home’s curb appeal and may even look a bit odd. If you truly can only replace a few windows at a time, you may want to consider doing all the windows that can be seen from the street first to keep a consistent look.
Another consideration with appearance is whether the window company will continue to make the exact same window with the same features, options and colors. This can be a big disappointment for homeowners who replace windows over several years.
Sometimes, especially in older homes, this goes hand in hand with safety. If your primary reason for replacing a window or two is that it no longer opens, stays open or closes properly, chances are good that the other windows in your home are going to fail sooner rather than later. New windows can offer many features including tilt in panes for easy cleaning and partial open locks.
