What to Consider Before Replacing the Windows on Your Home

By: Danny Lipford

Be sure to take these factors into consideration before replacing the window in your home:

  • Budget: Know what you can and can’t spend when replacing your windows. Check on state and federal energy efficiency tax credits to see if the windows you are considering will qualify.
  • Labor: While some homeowners may choose to save money and tackle replacing windows themselves, there are many pitfalls associated with DIY window replacement. Consider whether you would be better to hire a professional to avoid any extra damage and headaches.
  • Style: Select windows that complement the architectural style of your home and enhance both the form and function of your home.
