You should replace a broken window as soon as possible, but what if several are malfunctioning? Should you replace all of them in one go? Or is replacing them one at a time better? Read on as the luxury exterior remodelers at PJ Sullivan Exteriors elaborate on the pros and cons of each option below.
Why Some Homeowners Replace Broken Windows One at a Time
The common assumption is that replacing your windows one at a time will be easier on your wallet. But it may be that you’re not just getting a good deal. Contrary to what many homeowners believe, you’ll save more by replacing your windows all at once.
Labor prices for larger residential construction projects, including window installations, are usually cheaper than the combined cost of five or more projects.
Beyond the costs of the project, replacing your windows in one go has benefits for the quality of the installation itself. If different contractors were to install your windows, there would be a risk that not all of the windows will work properly or uniformly.
Now, you may be thinking that you can just ensure that you hire the same contractor to install all of your windows. However, there’s no guarantee that the same contractor will be available for the rest of the year. Especially in peak seasons, the number of construction projects spikes and it becomes harder to schedule appointments with quality contractors.
Wasted Time and Power Costs
And while you wait for the remaining faulty windows to be repaired, your power costs will likely increase. Heat and cool air may be leaking out of faulty windows, forcing your HVAC system to consume more electricity to maintain a comfortable temperature indoors.
To make sure the installation quality and design of your new windows remain consistent, only hire a certified contractor.
