Common Reasons For Window Replacement Escondido

There are various reasons for Escondido homeowners to get window replacement Escondido. Whether their old window is malfunctioning or they are looking for a more energy efficient window with curb appeal, Escondido homeowners are choosing US Window & Door for their window replacement Escondido needs.

Age

The most common reason by far is that their old windows are wearing out. Often, they notice that their old windows are letting in a draft even when you shut them tightly, or they start to have trouble opening and closing windows that have begun to warp or swell with moisture. Also, old windows may not look as good as they did when they were new, due to weather damage, mildew, stains, and other cosmetic issues. .

Energy Efficiency

Another major reason for window replacement Escondido is a desire to cut down on energy costs. In the past, window manufacturers made all windows with a single layer of glazing, or glass. In recent years, though, advances in technology have led to the development of highly energy-efficient windows that utilize multiple layers of glazing, gas-filled air pockets, and unique low-emissivity coatings to minimize the transfer of heat between the outside and the inside of the house. Consequently, replacing old windows can lead to significant monthly savings on electricity and/or gas bills.

Curb Appeal

Homeowners also seek out window replacement Escondido to improve the appearance of their home, especially if they are considering putting the house on the market. New windows can brighten up the exterior of a house, adding significantly to its curb appeal. New windows also offer a clean, bright view from inside the house and enhance the quality of light in a room.

Less Maintenance

Also, many of our customers are looking for home window replacement Escondido because they want a product that requires less maintenance than the windows they currently have. They want stress-free windows that need a minimum of care and no painting or touch-ups.

Top Materials For Window Replacement Escondido

Our top-of-the-line Milgard windows Escondido are available in four types of materials: wood, fiberglass, vinyl, and aluminum.

Wood Frames For Window Replacement Escondido

At US Window & Door, we carry wooden frames in Milgard’s Essence series. These Escondido replacement windows are manufactured with both wood and fiberglass. The wooden portion of the window faces the interior of the house, where homeowners can enjoy the warmth and beauty of the natural wood grain. The exterior of the window, however, is made of much more weather-resistant fiberglass. Also, these windows feature interior channels that drain away any moisture before it can damage the wood.

Fiberglass Frames For Window Replacement Escondido

Fiberglass is an increasingly popular window frame material because it offers many of the advantages of wood with none of the maintenance (i.e., sealing, staining, and painting) that wood requires. Fiberglass composite has the look of wood, and while it doesn’t require painting, it can be painted if the owner wants to change the color. Unlike wood, which absorbs moisture, fiberglass gently expands and contracts at the same rate as the window glass it holds, making it a stronger and more airtight window.
