Replacing your windows is an exciting process. Finally, you can put an end to air drafts, leaks and any other window problems that have been burdening you. Before diving in, find some time to look at your budget and make sure everything is covered.
In this article, Renewal by Andersen® of San Antonio shares some essential considerations to help you put together a detailed, accurate budget for your window replacement project.
Materials and Labor
The cost of replacing your windows will depend in large part on the material and style of window you choose. You’ll also need to factor in the cost for tools, nails and any extra materials needed for the trim, insulation, etc. Don’t forget to check the cost of labor as well. Ensure that you’re hiring a qualified and experienced installer to avoid problems down the road.
Savings and Borrowings
Paying for your new casement windows in cash is ideal. But if it means completely draining your savings, you might want to reconsider and look at other financing options. Personal loans, home equity loans and a home equity line of credit are some of the most popular ways of financing a window replacement project. Each has its own pros and cons that you should weigh and study thoroughly.
Energy Savings and Potential Tax Credits
Energy savings don’t kick in until after you’ve installed your new windows. However, by knowing how much you can expect to save every month, you can anticipate the savings you’re likely to enjoy. Also, make sure to check any potential tax credits that could help drive down the cost of your new windows.
