3 Frequently Asked Questions about Window Replacement

If you find yourself in need of window replacement or window repair in Calgary, then trust the experts at King’s Glass. Here, their experts are answering some of your most frequently asked questions regarding window replacement. Here are their answers.

What is a replacement window?

Replacement windows are custom-built to fit within the existing opening of a window. That way, they can be installed without needing to disturb or tear out the interior or exterior areas around the window. They also, usually, offer better energy efficiency, which can save you money in the long-term, because they’re designed to fit into place perfectly.

Do I need to replace my windows? Can I just repair them?

When it comes to saving on costs, many homeowners choose to repair their windows rather than replace them. Although that’s usually the smart idea, it’s not always worth the time or expense. If you’re experiencing any of the following, then it’s likely to be more in your best interest to replace your windows rather than repair them:

  • Extensive rot
  • The existing windows are single pane
  • Fog or condensation between panes of glass
  • Window hardware is not being manufactured any longer
  • Repair causes exposure to lead-based paint.

When’s the best time to install replacement windows?

Outside of extreme weather, replacement windows can be installed year-round. Installation typically only takes a single day for an average whole-home window replacement. By installing effective, energy-efficient windows, you can save on your energy bills year-round, meaning that it doesn’t matter which time of year you choose to replace your windows.
