If you are one of the majority, you are probably hesitant to make big financial decisions without careful thought and research. For example, replacing your home windows is a significant renovation cost and is usually not a decision taken lightly. There is a lot to consider: finances, timeline, styles, materials, installation companies…
Many homeowners these days are opting for vinyl replacement windows to alleviate the cost (while still maintaining the look they want). But, how do you know which to choose?
To ease your mind, the pros here at R&M Quality Windows & Doors have created a list of tips just for you—so you can feel confident in your decision.
Tips for choosing the right vinyl windows for your Livermore, CA home
There really is nothing more satisfying than sitting in your own home and enjoying the California views we are blessed with, is there? And, whether you are conscious of it or not, your windows are the best way to connect you to the outdoors. So, they should be beautiful, functional, and of the best quality! These 4 tips should help you decide on the right vinyl windows for your home:
- Choose to match your home’s architectural style
Each home has a specific design which makes it unique; you want your windows to match. Vinyl windows are excellent for contemporary, modern, and traditional style homes. If your home demands added character, consider custom shapes or an added bay window. Our team can help you make the right decisions for your home!
- Decide the purpose
Yes, the basic function of a window is to allow light in. But, consider that windows can serve other functional and aesthetic purposes as well. Are you looking to expand the size of the room with a bay window? Are you trying to make a small space appear large with floor-to-ceiling windows? Perhaps you are looking to capture the sunset just right or maybe you are needing better ventilation in an upstairs room. Windows serve many purposes.
- Complementing colors are key
Unless you are planning to repaint your home, matching the right interior/exterior window frame is key to ensuring the job looks right in the end. Luckily, vinyl windows come in all sorts of colors and finishes—so you will have no problem selecting the best complement to your home’s façade.
- Where is the sun?
Considering how your home sits in relation to the sun is quite important. Too much late-day sun in your living room or bedroom, for example, can be bothersome. Of course, window treatments can mitigate this. Though, being mindful of the sun’s location in reference to the various rooms in your home will help you to make decisions about glass tint, double- or triple-panes, and other energy efficient options here at R&M.
