Installing new windows can help you lower energy costs, take the hassle out of repairs, and improve the curb appeal of your home. Depending on how many windows you’re trying to install, you may be asking yourself whether or not to replace them all simultaneously or pace out the project. Once you’ve asked yourself these questions, you’ll have a better idea of how to tackle your window replacement project. While there is no right or wrong answer to whether or not to install your windows all at once, we’ve collected some things to consider before moving forward on your window-installation project.
How many windows are you installing?
If you’re looking to change out one or two squeaky windows, go ahead and check all of your windows to see if any others need to be replaced. We forget how quickly time flies, so you may need to update more windows than you originally planned! If just one or two windows are leaking air, go ahead and replace it so you can stay energy-efficient (your utility bills will thank you later). If multiple windows need replacing, it’s probably better to save up and replace them all at once to get a bulk discount and save the hassle of multiple installations.
What is your budget for the project?
If you’re looking to replace all of your windows, you need to be prepared for the upfront cost. While the total cost of replacing your windows will be less expensive if you install more at once, paying in bulk upfront may not be your preference. If your budget is a bit tighter, opt to split up your installations over a period of time, so go ahead and replace that worn-out window. If you’re not sure what option is best for you and your budget, give one of our experts a call for a free consultation.
Does the installation timeline matter to you?
Luckily, window projects are completed faster than renovating a kitchen or a bathroom and less disruptive on your daily schedule. Depending on how desperately you need a new window, this can change the timeline of when to replace all of your windows. Much like money, some choose to install their windows all at once to cut down on the price by buying in bulk and to keep the installation timeline short and sweet. By splitting up installations, this is basically repeating the process multiple times over the course of a few weeks or months. If you have a busy lifestyle, it may be worthwhile to set aside a chunk of time to dedicate to your window project.
