Replacing Windows One at a Time: A Better Strategy?
A broken or malfunctioning window must be replaced as soon as possible. However, if several units have the same problems, should the replacement be done one at a time or all at once? KAT Construction LLC, your local storm damage roof repair and window replacement company, sheds light on the matter.
The Case Against Partial Replacement
Many homeowners believe that replacing windows one or a few at a time is a better option than doing it all at once. For them, it is not as many expenses at once. However, there are risks involved in this option. Suppose you replace a few windows in your home and decided to delay doing so for the other units. When the time comes to replace the remaining units, you may spend a lot more than what you paid for in your initial project.
Using that same scenario, suppose you replace those first few windows with contractor A, then do the same of the rest with contractor B. Here lies another risk—not all replacement windows may work properly. One may install them correctly while the other may make mistakes in doing so.
The Case for Total Replacement
On the contrary, many storm damage restoration companies say that replacing windows all at once has benefits. For one, a single contractor to work on the entire project ensures a quality installation. All replacement units are the same, each installed in adherence to certain standards.
Once all windows are replaced, you no longer have to deal with drafts and other comfort issues that continue to affect your way of living. You won’t be forced to use your HVAC system for longer periods just to meet your heating and cooling requirements, which would lead to better energy savings and energy efficiency.
