Getting replacement windows shouldn’t be a challenge. At Goldfinch Brothers we have been working with home owners for over 125 years to meet their replacement window needs. Our process is simple, and saves you time for your everyday life.
Our Window Installation Process
Replacing windows on older homes sometimes comes with a challenge finding windows that fit an oddly sized casing. Our friendly team of techs and sales representatives will walk you through the process to getting those old funky sized windows replaced. Keep in mind, we also do custom cut windows for those odd sized window casings.
Finding replacement windows for your residence can be a challenge when searching for the right size of window that fits. Goldfinch Brothers works with many different window manufacturers so you can find the window that not only fits your odd sized window casing, but also one that adds beauty to your home.
In addition to finding windows that fit, and look good, it’s also important to consider having energy efficient replacement windows. Window technology has come a long ways in recent years. With new energy efficient windows you can save money, and help the environment!
What to Look for When Replacing Windows
A good set of window frames can last 20 years or more with proper care and maintenance. But there comes a time in every window’s cycle when it’s time to replace it with a better, newer model. Here are some of the signs you can look for when deciding whether to upgrade your own.
Check your windows for signs of damage. Inspect your frames for cracks, gaps and other wear. Do they fog up? Do they stick, requiring a bit of elbow grease to open them? Repair minor problems without replacing the entire window. “A window restoration specialist like Coviello—or even a good handyman or carpenter—can free up painted-shut upper sash, replace broken panes, sash cords, hardware, and glazing … and add weather-stripping,” Josh Garskof writes for Time. That sort of fix is likely to run you $100 to $350 per window. But, warped, cracked or otherwise badly damaged frames should be replaced instead of applying a band-aid to the problem. “Even if the windows are still operable, they can develop problems,” Kris Hanson, Senior Group Manager in Product Management at Marvin Windows and Doors, tells Forbes.
Should I Replace All of My Windows at Once?
Are you fighting drafts and high energy bills? Drafty windows, especially ones with single-pane glass, are often the culprit. By installing new windows you can reduce heat loss by about 10 to 20 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. They should have weatherstripping, durable materials, and have interlocking or overlapping joints.
Does your home need a makeover? Windows are among your home’s most prominent features, and if they look worn, faded or otherwise damaged they will tarnish your home’s appearance. Likewise, if you live in a historic home with vinyl windows that don’t quite match its cozy, rustic aesthetic.
Is it Worth Replacing Windows Before Selling a House
Among the quickest ways to boost your home’s curb appeal is with a new set of replacement windows. “Architects and builders know that good design is critical for the longevity of a structure,” Hanson says. “Design considerations are a close second to quality when selecting new windows, and the vision or design theme of a home or space should be a driving force in the window selection process.” By replacing the old windows you can also improve your home’s air flow. You can also flood your living space with more natural light, thus making it a cozier place to live.
