    My windows are really old and I’m thinking of replacing them. What I’m not sure about is whether to do it myself or call in the experts. I won’t say I’m the greatest at home renovations, but I’ve done a couple of small repairs around the house, so I’m not completely hopeless.

    Any advice on what makes a good fit, which ones are easier to install and who I can call for expert help, should I need it.

    Most people usually replace their windows when they are trying to sell their house (it increases the curb appeal and can help you fetch a higher price). Are you planning to sell the house and want it to look more appealing?

    No, not really… I have no intention of selling my home, well, at least not for several years anyway.

    What’s the current condition of your windows? Have you noticed some problems?

    It has been a while since they were last installed. I have been thinking of doing this for months now. I noticed that some of the windows appear a little damaged, so I’m concerned about air leakage. I figured this might be a good time to sort a few of these things out.

    If it has been a while, then it’s definitely a good idea to replace your windows. Fun fact – new windows can actually save you money on energy consumption.

    If you can’t make a proper decision, or if you feel the job is beyond you, you should contact Panes Window Manufacturing. I was really happy with the work they did for me. Right from the moment I contacted them, I knew I made the right decision.

    In fact, I recommend you let the pros do the job for you instead of doing this yourself. The experts can give you the best advice and also do a perfect job.

    Leakage can be a HUGE problem. If you’re changing any windows that have leakage, you need to consider a few things:

    • There are different types of windows. You need to get one that is best suited for your home.
    • Consider the functionality of the windows.
    • You will need to think of the material that will be used. Whatever you get, it must be energy efficient.
    • Be very careful with how the window operates. Certain windows are more prone to air leakage, so keep that in mind when choosing.
    • Hinges can be at the side, top or bottom.
    • Windows may open inward or outward.

    I suggest you think more about the functionality of the windows rather than the design and how it looks.

    Thanks for all your responses, everyone! I’ll consider my options and proceed from there.
