For many Las Vegas homeowners, the process of shopping for new windows can be an overwhelming one. There are a multitude of choices to make about the kind of windows you want in your home, from their glass density to their material, and each choice plays a major role in the overall quality of your windows. This process can be even harder if it’s your first time shopping for windows and you’re not entirely sure what to look for. The good news is that by asking yourself the right questions, you can simplify the process and ensure you bring home Las Vegas, NV windows you love.
What are my window goals?
While it may sound strange to have “goals” for your window, it’s important to know before ever stepping onto the showroom floor what you expect from your new windows. Are you looking for windows that will help you save on your energy bill? Windows to increase the airflow in your home? Perhaps you just want windows that will add a little extra curb appeal to your home’s exterior? By knowing ahead of time, you can start narrowing your options.
What’s your short term (and long term) budget?
Many homeowners visit a window store with an idea of how much they want to spend on the initial price of the windows, or the windows’ sticker price. While it’s important to know how much of an initial investment you’re willing to make on your windows, it’s also important to know the long term cost. This means analyzing how much you want to spend on repairs, upkeep, maintenance, and eventually the replacement of the windows. The answer to this question will give you a better idea of which window material is right for you.
How much time are you willing to invest?
Similar to your short term and long term budget, it’s important to know how much time and energy you are willing to spend on your new windows. Will you be willing to peel, sand, paint and stain your windows year after year, or are you hoping for a window model that only requires the occasional cleaning with soap and water? Knowing this ahead of time will help you avoid being stuck with any extra unwanted chores.
Do you plan on reselling your home?
If you plan on reselling your home, it’s important to remember that every detail of the house will contribute to its final resale value, this includes your windows. Recent real estate reports have shown that some homes sell more than others as a result of having a specific type of window installed. We suggest speaking with a real estate agent or visiting a local house to get a better idea of what type of window is considered standard for your area. This will save you from having to replace your windows yet again when it’s time to sell your home.
