Important Questions to Ask Before Window Replacement

Important Questions to Ask Before Window Replacement

Are you planning on having your windows replaced? If you answered yes, then you should definitely try to learn as much as possible about the project. And, what better way to learn about it than directly asking window experts during a consultation for emergency roof repair? Here are some of the most important questions you should ask before your window replacement even starts.

How Will the New Windows Operate?

This one seems obvious at first, but you’d be surprised at how many homeowners are caught off-guard by windows that don’t operate as they expected. Even if you know that you’re getting new casement windows, ask if these are casement windows that open by swinging outward, inward, or both directions.

Ask About the Finish

A window’s finish can have a significant effect on the overall look of your windows. The finish will also have an effect on the overall cost of your windows, plus the maintenance requirements and even the energy efficiency of the window as a whole.

Standalone or Set

A lot of homeowners tend to overlook the appearance and function of their new windows in relation to older ones that don’t have to be replaced yet. Some windows are fine as standalone replacements, but others work better if installed along with other replacements as a complete set. This will have a huge effect on the budget needed to get the best results so it’s important to ask this well before installation starts.

Ask for All the Fees

It’s common for replacement window projects to go beyond the expected budget. However, you can avoid unexpected fees during home exterior renovations by asking for a more comprehensive cost breakdown of your projects. This will also help you prepare an extra “buffer” for rare cases where an unexpected problem could cost extra resources to fix before the new windows can be installed.

Tips for Selecting Windows for Your Bathroom

Tips for Selecting Windows for Your Bathroom

It can be a challenge to pick windows for your bathroom. You want your space to be well-lit while still maintaining privacy. Proper ventilation also matters because excessive humidity can encourage mold growth, which can spread around your home.

So, what windows should you use in your bathroom?

Window Styles

With privacy glass, awning windows can still hide the inside view of your bathroom even if the windows are open. Operable windows like awnings are also more efficient than other styles. The compression seals form an airtight seal when the windows are shut, minimizing heat loss. You can also combine an awning window with a stationary window for more natural light.

Window Size 

The brighter your bathroom is, the more spacious it looks and feels. You can get more natural light with bigger windows, but privacy can be an issue. Consider installing multiple windows to brighten up your bathroom. An experienced window contractor or home exterior renovations expert can help you choose the right size windows for your space.

Glass Options  

There are various glass styles that are suitable for bathrooms. Stained glass would work well in older homes while frosted glass is ideal for modern bathrooms. If you have a vintage bathroom you may also consider seeded glass. Moreover, glass block windows can also give your home more character.


By placing windows higher on the wall, you can make your bathroom brighter while still maintaining privacy. You should also consider the shape of the window. A narrow window placed higher up will provide the same amount of light as a tall window placed in the lower part of the room.
