Replacing Basement Windows
Your basement windows may be small, but they have a significant role in your home’s security, energy efficiency, curb appeal and resale value.
When considering replacing basement windows consider these key points:
1. Your Basement Windows Shouldn’t Be an Eyesore
Many homes are built with steel frame windows which tend to rust over time making your home look dated and unattractive.
2. Energy Efficiency Shouldn’t Stop On the Main Level
Energy efficient basement windows are a great way to keep your basement and the rest of your home warm and/or cool. Many homes are built with utility-grade basement windows that provide a very thin single pane glass – which can lead to significant heat loss. This creates an uncomfortable basement in the winter and cools the spaces above.
3. Enjoy Maintenance Free Windows
Thinking a decent paint job should do the trick to make those old windows look new again? Well, maybe if you’re not worried about energy efficiency and don’t mind painting your windows after they soon begin to weather with mold, rust and rot.
4. Keep Your Home Security
New windows are more durable, and help to secure your home from break-ins.
