We have officially entered the fresh new season of Spring, and in combination has come the thoughts of what we can do to upgrade the look and function of our home. The sun and warm weather give us the motivation to do more and be active in home renovations. One of the changes at the top of everyone’s list: Windows. Windows are a great reflection on the style and class of your home, and when upgraded, can change the look forever. However, how do you know when to change them, and what to change them to?

One of the most important (if not the most) factors of changing your windows is age. The older they are, the less energy efficient they become, costing you money without even realizing it. In addition, as they do age there is definitely less “cyrb appeal”. With so many options on the types of windows and suppliers, Shade Works has helped you out by putting together a list of Tips to make this process as easy as possible.  

RESEARCH 

Before you buy your new windows, make sure to take the time to research different companies and options. Do not rush into decisions based on someone calling you or giving you a referral.

MANUFACTURER 

The most important factor in the decision has to be who you decide to go with for these replacement windows. Ask questions and make sure if the company you are using actually builds the windows, or if they outsource the parts and just assemble them for you.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Windows and Doors can be a significant source of heat loss in the home. The right windows can help reduce your energy costs by almost 10% annually, but overall, keep your home more comfortable throughout the summer or winter seasons. The best window manufacturers ensure their windows will meet energy efficient levels that are set by Natural Resources Canada.

UV PROTECTION

UV Protection is often overlooked by most people. It is often misunderstood as to how harmful it can be. Namely, the effect it has on damaging your furniture, window coverings and artwork. Make sure your windows are extremely UV protective!

There you go! This valuable information should set you on the right track to choosing the right windows for your family and your home. Remember to come right back to Shade Works once the new windows are in to get them covered, in style! Have a great day.
