Quick Questions to Ask Before Your Window Replacement Project

Many homeowners have varying degrees of familiarity with replacement window installation. While some replace old windows to prevent air leaks, others install new windows to boost the aesthetics of their home. While these are all well and good, there are more to window replacement than it seems.

Before you dive into the actual installation, keep in mind a few things:

What type of window is best for your home?

You can’t just choose a window based on aesthetics alone; you need to weigh your decisions based on aesthetics and functionality. Not all window types are created equal and not all make a good addition to a home. The best way to go about determining which type of window to install is to ask experts in replacement windows in Springfield, IL.

Do you need a permit?

Some projects require a permit before you can even start, and the same goes for window replacement services. You can always call your local building department to determine if your property is allowed for a window replacement.

Do you have a timeline?

The duration of a window replacement project usually takes a couple of days – this will depend on the number of windows being installed. You can expect the project to be completed in a couple of days, especially if there are no disruptions during the installation.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
