Replacing Windows

Getting Started with Replacing Windows

Replacing your home windows can lower your utility bills and increase your home's value. According to Energy StarĀ®, replacing old windows with new Energy StarĀ® qualified models will save you between 7 and 15 percent annually on your energy bills. This will also help lower greenhouse gas emissions from power plants.

Checklist of Materials

When choosing a coordinating window material, base your decision off the architecture of your home.

  • Aluminum- Lightweight, strong and the most cost effective. Usually selected for homes in warm to mild climate.
  • Composite- Strength and stability of wood, with the low-maintenance features of vinyl. These are available in rich exterior colors.
  • Glass Block- A special building material made of glass and laid similarly to brick or concrete blocks. Commonly used in basements.
  • Vinyl- Durable and energy efficient. Easy to care for with ample design options to boost your home's curb appeal.
  • Wood- The beauty of natural wood without the worry of wood rot. Easy to care for that offers design freedom to get the look you dreamed of.

Proper Measuring

Measuring needs to be precise. The right fit is crucial to the performance and energy efficiency of your new windows.

Installing Windows

Remove your old windows very carefully to avoid damage the home's walls. Make sure you have a weathertight fit, while making assuring your new window or door is square, level and plumb in the opening. Your new windows must be properly sealed, to prevent air, moisture and water from leaking in. It is also important to install insulation between your home's walls and the new windows.

Cleaning Up

Your old windows should be disposed of in a proper manner. Contact your local Carter Lumber with any questions. Check each window for proper operation, and that they are completely sealed. You can now finish your windows, whether you choose to paint or stain them, or add hardware. Finally, and if necessary, interior and exterior trim needs to be replaced and finished.
