Windows aren’t what they used to be. They are no longer built just for letting in the light. Beyond beauty, the right windows offer energy efficiency, enhance curb appeal, safety and much, much more. Check out these three reasons why replacing your windows will increase the value of your home.
1. Energy Efficiency
Save on utility costs by switching to windows with better insulating properties. Losing heat or cool air through your windows not only increases your carbon footprint, but wastes your money. The U.S. Department of Energy confirms that windows are responsible for up to 30% of residential cooling energy use. Brightwing teams with a variety of window manufacturers offering the best solution for your home and your budget. We refuse to contract with any particular manufacturer in order to offer the perfect window for your needs. Should you wish to install high end names such as Kolbe or Marvin, we can do it. If you prefer Pella, Jeld-Wen, or Andersen, we can provide expert installation. Names like Don Young Windows and Alside are popular workhorse windows with few frills, but great price, performance, and warranties.
2. Curb Appeal
Installing new windows is great for your resale value and the first impression of your home. You’d be surprised how a panel of glass can transform the appearance of your entire house. New windows are evidence that the home has been well maintained. Furthermore, double-hung windows are easier to keep clean. Instead of struggling to reach the exterior, touchups are easy when there are two separate sashes to lift up.
Windows are a point of entry. With the right windows installed, you can have peace of mind living in a home that’s safe. Newer windows not only protect your home from intruders, but operate more smoothly in emergencies like fires. If you have trouble opening or closing your windows, it could be time to replace them. Impact resistant glass also prevents damage from forced entry, harsh weather, and more.
Even the best windows need to properly be installed to operate effectively. Brightwing Custom Crafted Exteriors guarantees a skilled installation and ensures that your home is equipped with the materials it needs to stay beautiful, protected and efficient.
