Picking the Right Windows For Your Rental Property

Your rental property may not be your main residence but that doesn’t mean it’s less of a home, especially for your tenants. After all, as a good landlord, you’ll want to make sure that the home is as presentable as possible. To accomplish this, you can perform a few upgrades around the property and one of the most popular upgrades you can do is replacing the windows.

Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Sacramento shares tips to help you choose the right window for your rental property.

Window Structure

When replacing the windows of your rental property, make sure to look at its overall structure. Make sure to pick a window that has a frame that gives it an aesthetically appealing form, cladding that protects the window and makes it more durable, and glass that makes the window more energy-efficient than your previous ones. By installing a window with this structure, you’re bound to have a strong window that will last your for a long time and help you save a significant amount on your bills as well.

Ratings and Labels

Tenants will want an energy-efficient home in order to save on their monthly bills. Therefore, when you’re choosing new casement or double-hung windows for your rental property, make sure to look at its ratings from the NFRC and check if it has the ENERGY STAR® label. For the NFRC ratings, check the ratings of the U-factor, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient, Air Leakage and Visibility Transmission. By doing so, you’ll be able to properly determine if the window is energy-efficient.

Price and Performance

Take a good look at the price and performance of your replacement windows. Some windows can be costly to buy but aren’t exactly the best when it comes to keeping drafts and moisture at bay. If you’re having a difficult time doing this, consider approaching an expert for their advice.
