If your windows have been installed at around the same time, it’s possible that they would be showing signs of wear and needing replacement around the same time. However, since the windows in your home are located in different areas, their exposure to certain elements and frequency of use could have an impact on their life span too. That said, you may find some of your windows are wearing out more quickly than the others. This may get you thinking about whether to replace all your windows at once or prioritize according to urgency or per room.
In this post, Renewal by Andersen of Sacramento discusses a few things to consider if you’re deciding on whether to replace all your windows or not.
Do I Need to Replace All My Windows at Once?
Generally, it’s advisable to replace old and damaged windows as soon as possible. This could mean replacing all of your windows at once or only a few ones that are in poor condition. The former will definitely be more expensive. So if budget is an issue, it’s totally fine to replace only a few windows at a time. It’s not necessary to have all your windows replaced at the same time. However, take note that a staggered approach might cost you more in the long run since you’ll have to pay for labor a number of times.
Obviously, there are pros and cons to each option, and you’ll have to carefully consider these factors and your personal circumstances when making a decision.
Tips on Getting the Most Out of Your Window Replacement Project
If your picture windows don’t need urgent replacement, there’s nothing wrong in changing them at a later time and focusing first on the ones that are in really bad shape. But in order to get more bang for your buck, you might want to consider replacing multiple windows at a time.
Many window companies offer special deals to customers who plan on buying around five to eight windows at a time. Make sure to compare prices and promotions, and check with your local contractors and dealers so that you can take advantage of such deals.
