Benefits Of Replacing Your Old Windows In Central MA.

Solid State Construction has been serving homeowners in Central MA for nearly two decades, and we’ve learned a lot during that time.  One of the most important lessons is to always pay careful attention to your home’s windows.  Faulty windows are a major problem, and replacing your windows can be one of the simplest ways to VASTLY improve your home.

It’s not always easy to tell when you should replace your windows.  Obviously, if there is visible damage, it’s probably time to start thinking about it!

But what if your windows look more or less okay, but sometimes you feel drafts and your energy bills are higher than you would like?

These are also strong indicators you may need to consider replacing your windows.  After all, windows play a MASSIVE role in determining your home’s energy efficiency.

They also help drown out outside noise and are even part of your home’s security.  Windows are a means by which burglars and home invaders can access your home.  Making sure they are properly closed, sealed, and locked is key to keeping you and your family safe.

Increased Home Value

Replacement windows offer a great return on investment.  Properties with new windows can easily pull in new buyers.  That’s good news if you are considering selling in the future.  It’s no secret that new, properly-installed windows reduce energy costs, look great, and help keep your home safe and secure.

Increased Home Security

As we’ve mentioned, windows can be a point of entry for nefarious people.  Making sure ALL of your windows have the ability to be shut securely and locked is crucial to preventing home invasions.

Obviously, a determined criminal can break a window, but it takes force and effort and makes a LOT of noise.  Many burglars will simply give up if they cannot get in easily.

Increased Comfort

If you’ve ever noticed that certain areas of your home seem to stay warmer than others in the winter, the likely culprit is either your windows or doors.  Because they have spaces that allow air to get in and out, poorly sealed doors and windows can be a MAJOR source of discomfort.  Replacing your windows might just be the key to solving your home’s draftiness problem.

Decreased Allergens & Dust Particles

If anyone in your household suffers from seasonal allergies or other respiratory issues, new windows can be an HUGE relief.  If your windows aren’t sealed, all of those allergens are going to get in.  While you probably can’t get your allergen levels down to zero, replacing your old, drafty windows can certainly help.

Decreased Noise Pollution

Believe it or not, a good window can actually help keep out outside noises.  If everything that’s going on outside feels like it’s happening right next to you, there’s a high probability your windows are in dire need of replacement.  Don’t suffer through loud lawnmowers, barking dogs, or your neighbors’ terrible taste in music any longer!

Increased Energy Efficiency

Perhaps the single biggest reason why so many people today are investing in new and better replacement windows is energy efficiency.  Energy costs are not getting any lower, and the planet isn’t getting any healthier, so investing in improved energy efficiency is definitely a smart idea.

Making sure your windows are up to par is one of the simplest and least costly ways to do this.

Curb Appeal

New windows look great.  There’s no doubt about it.  Replacing your windows is one of the easiest and best ways to give your home a whole new look.

Newer windows are just made better, and they are designed to require much less maintenance.  Rather than keep suffering through maintaining your old windows, just invest in new ones and get true peace of mind.
