August 01, 2010
In the market for replacement windows? Great! New windows can give your home a facelift and save energy. But with such a variety of artfully-crafted products on the market, you might wonder which replacement solution is right for you. Andersen Windows and Doors, for example, offers the following benefits on their replacement windows:
- High-performance glass stays cleaner and reduces water spotting
- Custom sizing available
- Nearly-invisible insect screen option
- Low-maintenance exteriors
- Fast installation
- Natural wood interior
- Convenient tilt-in cleaning
There are two main replacement window options: insert and full-frame. Learn more about each to decide which is right for your home.
Option One: Insert Replacement Windows
Insert replacement windows allow you to preserve the way your home looks with the original frame, trim, and interior casing, while upgrading the window with high-performance glass. Insert replacement windows are affordable and easy to install into the existing opening. A 35.625-inch by 56.875-inch Andersen insert replacement window runs approximately $655*.
Option Two: Full-frame Replacement Windows
Another option is to install full-frame replacement windows. Full-frame installations are similar to new construction installations in that the frame and sash are removed, making the opening weather-tight and often increasing the glass area. Full-frame replacement windows can fit almost any window opening, coming in a variety of sizes for double-hung, casement, awning, and specialty windows. A 35.625-inch by 56.875-inch Andersen insert replacement window costs approximately $521*.
Your first step is to decide whether you want to preserve the original frame. If so, you'll want to look at insert replacement windows. If that's not important or you want a new look, consider full-frame replacement windows. You can start shopping for replacement windows online, where hundreds of window styles, sizes, materials, and options are available for you to view and compare. Do your homework and get ready to upgrade your home with new windows!
