Do You Need New Windows?
New windows are a major investment for any homeowner. But old windows may be compromising your home’s climate control by allowing chilly draughts to seep in during the cold season and allowing your nice, cool air-conditioned air to slip out during the summer. When windows allow this to happen, your HVAC system has to work overtime. This hard work can lead to expensive repairs and reduce the longevity of your furnace or AC unit. New windows are designed with energy efficiency in mind. Our contractors can help you select windows that provide effect barriers against the elements.
Windows that are old and in poor repair can also lead to moisture damage. They may be difficult to open and close. If rot is settling in to areas around your windows, you might even need some extensive repairs to your structure around the windows. When windows are in this type of condition, they can even attract pests who nest in the cracks and crevices around windows. If your windows are in a state of disrepair, consult with Maven about replacement windows for your home.
New Windows Are a Great Investment in Your Home
Not all home upgrades will add substantial value to your house, but new windows are generally something home sellers can bank on if they choose to sell after installing new windows. Many buyers purposely avoid houses that have old windows that are in poor condition. They don’t want the expense or hassle of getting new ones when there are other properties to consider.
Many of our customers tack in the cost of their new windows to their home’s asking price. Replacement windows are a definite marketing plus for sellers. Of course, even if you don’t plan to sell your home at present, it’s still important to maintain or enhance your home’s value. Maven understands that new windows are an investment that homeowners must carefully consider. We’re here to help with those decisions every step of the way, answering your questions and addressing all of your concerns about products, costs, and the installation process.
Some homeowners worry that new windows will detract from the period look of their house. However, there are many window manufacturers that specialize in historic window replicas. These windows have the look of an older era, but are crafted with today’s technology. There are many window styles on the market today from vintage-inspired models to chic-modern designs. New windows can transform the look of your home for amazing curb appeal. Our contractors can help you select the right style of windows for your house.

A Word about Materials
Homeowners have many options when it comes to window styles, but they also have choices when it comes to materials types too. Today’s window frames come in materials like vinyl, wood, fiberglass, aluminum, and composite materials. There’s a lot to consider when it comes to your replacement window frames. For instance, aluminum is the least expensive, it’s durable, and requires next to no maintenance, but it’s not a very good insulating material. Vinyl is one of the most popular, inexpensive, and maintenance-free materials, but it doesn’t have the same traditional character as wood. We’ll help you select a material that’s just right for your home.
