Why Window Replacement

The NECKO neighborhood is a wonderful place to live. The houses are known for their interesting front doors, unique mix of architectural styles. Houses with dormers, front porches, or made of bricks add to the special feel of the area. Living in central Ohio and specifically Columbus gives many opportunities for recreation, learning, shopping, dining, or just enjoying our beautiful neighborhood.

Types of Windows for Replacement

There are many different Ohio replacement window styles, far too many to list here. What style you use will often be dictated by the style of the home you have. It is important to maintain the beauty of our neighborhood and windows are part of that. There are three basic materials that window frames are constructed of. The first is wood. While wood is naturally beautiful and may be needed to match the style of an older home, it does require regular maintenance such as painting. Wood does, also, have naturally insulating properties which is good in OH. For larger windows, wood is not appropriate but aluminum should be used. It is virtually maintenance-free, however it doesn't have the insulation properties that wood or vinyl have. But if a window is over a certain size, aluminum may be the only choice. Finally, there is vinyl. Vinyl can be very beautiful and is virtually maintenance-free. It is also good for insulation keeping out the cold in winter or keeping in the cool in summer.

Other Considerations in NECKO

Maintaining the beauty of our homes in our NECKO neighborhood is very important. So with NECKO window replacement there is more to consider than just the windows. If a homeowner has the skills needed they could replace one or two windows over a weekend. But for the replacement of many windows or a larger window, a contractor should be used.

Can you imagine the horror if a contractor took out one of your windows then did not return for days or a week to put in the replacement? Also, if the contractor is not careful, drywall, plaster, or siding could be damaged during the replacement job. That would require expensive and unsightly patch jobs which will degrade the beauty and resale value of your home.
