Home Replacement Windows

A Phoenix window replacement is the best way to spruce up the look of a Phoenix, AZ home. If the home is older and needs to have an updated look, this is the ideal way to do it. Replacing the older windows in a home with new styles can completely transform the look of the home. Best of all, it will also increase the energy efficiency and allow you to save money on heating and air conditioning bills.

The first step to choosing a Phoenix replacement is to determine what designs you would like to have. If you plan to change the style, be sure to keep the same size or smaller unless you are having a contractor do the work. Anytime you increase the size of an opening on an exterior wall, the proper permits must be pulled to ensure the structural integrity of the home will not suffer.

If the frames of the existing windows in your Phoenix, AZ home are rotten or damaged, you may want to consider using an Arizona window replacement contractor or purchasing a kit to do the replacement. You never want to put a new energy efficient model in an old rotted frame. This would defeat the purpose of the newer model. It is better to strip the old unit out to the rough opening and then add a new frame.

Cost of Window Replacing

The cost of a Phoenix window replacement is not as expensive as you might think, especially when compared to the savings you will begin seeing almost immediately. If cost is a concern, you may want to consider doing the work in stages allowing you to purchase the windows you want without the cost hitting your budget all at one time, especially for more complex projects like horizontal slider window replacement.

Another great cost saving idea is to do all or part of the work yourself. A Phoenix window replacement is easy to do if you are just replacing one with another. You can even purchase kits that make it very easy to do. Kits come in three basic options, sash, insert, and full frame. If the unit just needs a facelift, the sash kit is the best choice. It will replace the windows moving parts with hardly any fuss.

If the unit is past its prime but the frame is in good shape, you might want to choose an insert Phoenix window replacement. This kit is made to fit inside the existing frame. The insert is a fully framed model and because you are attaching it to the existing frame, you will have slightly less glass area than you had before.

For windows whose frames are rotted or damaged, the full frame Phoenix window replacement is the best solution. This replacement is made to fit into the rough opening of the old window's location. The old unit and its frame must be removed completely for this kit to be installed. Again, this is an easy replacement to do yourself if you are handy with tools.

Replacing Windows Yourself

If you would like to save money on the contractor costs, you can easily do a Phoenix window replacement yourself. All you need is a few tools, calk, and expanding insulating foam. If you are uncomfortable doing the replacement yourself for the first time, you may want to hire a Phoenix, Arizona contractor to show you how to do it. Then you can do the rest yourself and save hundreds on construction costs.

First, remove the old stops and set aside for later. Then remove the sashes and cut through the nails that hold the existing unit in place. Remove the old window and clean any debris and paint from the rough opening. Use expanding foam to fill any holes and then cut away the excess once it dries. Calk the inside edge and the outside window stops and place the new unit into the opening.

Check the new Phoenix window replacement for level and square and use shims where required to square up the unit. Cut the shims flush with the frame and add the inside stops back in place. Calk the new unit along the frame and you have a new window in your Phoenix home. If the outside of the window has a gap, you can easily fill it with a small piece of wood. Be sure to calk any seams along the exterior of the window.
