If your home is 20 years or older, you’ve probably thought about replacing your windows; but window replacement can be a daunting task thanks to some popular myths out there. Here are some common window renovation myths debunked!

Common Myths About Home Window Replacement

Myth #1: I have to replace all of my windows at once
Fact: You can increase your curb appeal with minimal investment. New vinyl windows are definitely a worthwhile expense, and to get the best value out of your purchase, do them in affordable chunks. Many homeowners will start with the front of their home to increase their curb appeal, or with problem windows that have condensation between the panes. Try and catch a window promotion to save even more money.

Myth #2: A window renovation can take weeks, and my house will be left a mess
Fact: While the manufacturing of your vinyl windows or fiberglass entry doors can take a few weeks depending on the season, the actual installation should only take a day or two. A reputable local window company will be able to pinpoint your installation date once you have your windows ordered, and will leave your home as clean as it was when they arrived.

Myth #3: I have to wait for summer to replace my windows so the rain doesn’t get inside
Fact: When your windows are being replaced, your window installation team will take out and replace one window at a time. This means installations can happen year round – even in bad weather. The installers may do two or three windows at a time if it’s a sunny day, but they will take every precaution to ensure the inside of your home stays dry and comfortable.
