Louisville Window Replacement

Louisville window replacement is a worthwhile venture for any homeowner looking for a way to increase the curb appeal of their home in one project. Completing this project with can also make your home more energy efficient, decrease utility bills and improve ventilation.

Derby city is a great place to call home. Besides being both an affordable place to live and conveniently located to other metropolitan areas, Louisville also boasts an exiciting nightlife, diverse music scene and is home to the legendary annual Kentucky Derby. Sports and multiple types of recreation are a high priority in this city, and partially due to it's fantastic weather. However, Louisville, KY is also know for being very humid, and that can have a serious affect on the life of your windows.

When to Replace

Most people don't realize that they need a window replacement until it's already too late and they're experiencing major problems. This puts you at a disadvantage as you will not have enough prior notice to budget properly. Catching window problems early is key to a successful, cheap and fast Louisville window replacement. There are multiple "warning signs" to alert you that it is time to replace.

If you experience especially drafty winters or exceptionally humid summers and you know your heat and air conditioning are running properly, it's likely that you'll need to perform a Louisville window replacement job soon. Usually, ill-fitting or old materials are poor insulators and allow heat to escape during the winter while allowing moisture and humidity inside during the summer. The moist environment in Louisville, KY can also affect the shape of your frames or sashes and, if they are made of older wood products, then then can easily warp or shift over time.

Once you complete your Louisville replacement job, you'll notice an immediate difference in the temperature of your home. Summers will be cooler, winters will be cozier and, with any luck, your power bills will start dropping quite a bit. It's also a good idea to consider Energy Star rated Louisville window replacement materials while you're browing window replacement estimates. They are good insulators for additional energy saving benefits.

Window Materials

There are many materials you can choose from to complete your Louisville window replacement job, and all materials have their own advantages and disadvantages. These Kentucky options range in cost, durability, effectiveness and maintenance. Carefully consider each type of Louisville window replacement option before you begin the replacement process so you know which material will perform the best for your needs.

Vinyl is quickly surpassing wood as the most popular material for Louisville window replacement. It has many advantages, such as the fact that it is incredibly low-maintenance and can be cleaned with simple soap and water. It is also very good at insulation, which means that you don't have to worry about excessive heat transfer or a drafty home. This material is fairly inexpensive and very durable. However, it generally only comes in a limited selection of colors and has been known to fade more easily over time than some other options.

Wood is still a popular choice for Louisville window replacement, but it is usually affixed with a vinyl/aluminum cover to improve it's lifespan. Exposed wood can rot, attract termites and can warp quickly over time - which you've probably experienced if you're looking into KY replacements. However, one of the primary advantages of replacing with wood is that the natural look of wood is very difficult to replicate and many homeowners select this option for aesthetic reasons.

Aluminum is another material that has been used for several years, but has changed over time. Firstly aluminum is inexpensive, which is a great advantage. However, it is also a poor insulator and will commonly transfer the temperature of the outside into the building - which is generally not an ideal situation. Thus, these days aluminum is used much more for commercial and industrial buildings than for residential homes.

Choosing a Louisville Window Replacment

Once you've decided it's time to replace and chosen a material, you can then choose a manufacturer and, eventually, a contractor. Some people prefer the idea of installing their new products themselves, but this is not necessarily the best decision for everyone. Unless you have window replacement experience, you're much better off hiring the services of a Louisville replacement professional to ensure that the job is done correctly. After you complete your Louisville window replacement job, you can relax and enjoy the many benefits of your home improvement project.
