Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) - Window Replacement Service

When considering window replacement, understanding the cost is crucial. The price varies widely based on factors such as window types (e.g., double-hung, casement, bay), materials (vinyl, wood, aluminum), and the quality of the glass. On average, homeowners can expect to spend anywhere from a moderate to a significant amount per window. This range includes standard sizes; custom windows may cost more.

Structural repairs or modifications can incur additional costs, especially in older homes where window sizes might be non-standard. Though initially more expensive, energy-efficient options like low-E coatings and argon gas fillings can provide long-term savings through reduced energy bills. Our team at Carolina Home Exteriors offers a free in-home consultation to assess your needs and provide a detailed quote, ensuring transparency and a tailored approach to your window replacement project.

Knowing when to replace your windows is key to maintaining your home’s comfort, energy efficiency, and aesthetics. Common signs that it’s time for replacement windows include:

  • Drafts or Leaks: If you feel air coming through your windows, it means they are no longer sealing properly.
  • Difficulty in Operation: Windows that stick, jam, or refuse to stay open are safety hazards and inconvenience.
  • Condensation Between Panes: This indicates seal failure, leading to reduced energy efficiency.
  • Audible Noise: Good windows should offer some sound insulation. Excessive noise penetration might mean the windows are not sealing correctly.
  • Aged Windows: If your windows are over 20 years old, they are likely not as energy-efficient as modern windows.

Our expertise in replacement windows ensures that we can guide you in selecting the right time and type of windows for your home, enhancing its value and efficiency.

The duration of a window replacement project varies based on several factors, including the number of windows, the type of windows being installed, and the condition of the existing frames and sills. On average, a skilled team can replace 10-15 windows in a typical home within 2-3 days. This timeline assumes no major structural modifications are needed.

Our process at Carolina Home Exteriors begins with a comprehensive assessment to identify potential issues that might extend the project’s duration. Our experienced installers work efficiently, ensuring minimal disruption to your daily routine while maintaining the highest standards of quality and craftsmanship.

While DIY window replacement might seem cost-effective, it comes with risks. Improper installation can lead to air leaks, water damage, and voided warranties. Professional installation ensures that your windows are correctly fitted, sealed, and insulated, maximizing their performance and lifespan.

Our team at Carolina Home Exteriors comprises experienced professionals who understand the nuances of window installation. We guarantee that your windows will be installed with precision and care, adhering to industry standards. This professional installation not only enhances your home’s energy efficiency but also provides peace of mind with warranties and expert support.

Understanding the energy efficiency of windows is vital for making an informed decision. Windows are rated based on factors like U-factor, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC), and R-value. The U-factor measures how well a window can keep heat from escaping, with lower values indicating better insulation. SHGC rates how much heat from the sun is blocked, with lower values being more efficient in warmer climates. R-value, on the other hand, indicates resistance to heat flow, where a higher R-value signifies better insulation.

Energy Star-rated windows meet strict efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These windows can significantly lower energy bills, improve comfort by reducing drafts and hot spots, and protect against sun damage to interior furnishings. Carolina Home Exteriors offers a range of energy-efficient replacement windows that meet or exceed these standards, helping you choose the best options for your specific needs and climate.

Upgrade Your Windows with Carolina Home Exteriors

IMPROVE YOUR HOME'S ENERGY EFFICIENCY

One of the biggest benefits of a window replacement in your home is that you’ll be improving your home’s energy efficiency. Because with each new energy-efficient window, your home will be that much better insulated. And the better insulated your home is, the less energy it requires to regulate the temperature inside of it. This, of course, means your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard as it currently is working to satisfy your thermostat. And when it’s not working as hard, you’re using less energy, which of course is a good thing. You’ll quickly notice that your electric bill has decreased, assuming you’ve replaced your old windows with newer energy-efficient ones. And that money saved can even help pay for your window replacement over time or make more energy-efficient repairs, like new doors.

EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR HVAC

It goes without saying, but if you’re not using your HVAC as often or putting as much stress on it, you’re going to extend its life. That means you won’t have to repair it as often or replace it as soon, which can save you some serious cash in the long run. If you’ve ever replaced your HVAC system before or even just made a major repair, you know how expensive it can be. In fact, replacing your HVAC system is one of the most expensive major repairs you can make to your home. That’s why it’s a good idea to take the steps needed to keep it alive and well for as long as possible. So, extend the life of your current HVAC system by getting new replacement windows. Because the last thing you want to do is pay thousands of dollars to patch your current HVAC system simply because it runs too much.

MAKE YOUR HOME MORE COMFORTABLE

Once you make your home better insulated, your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to reach your desired temperature. And that means it’s much easier to make your home more comfortable for you, your family, and any guests that you may have over at any given time. Because let’s face it. If you’re always hot in the summer or cold in the winter, being at home isn’t as relaxing or as enjoyable as you’d like it to be. And if you aren’t comfortable at home, you’re not going to be happy at home, which isn’t a good thing. Make sure everyone in your house is as comfy and cozy as they can be. Get new replacement windows installed today so it’s much easier to regulate your home’s temperature.

MAKE YOUR HOME SAFER AND MORE SECURE

It’s impossible to ever truly feel at home if you don’t feel safe and secure, especially at night. And if your current windows are old and don’t lock well, or at all, you and your family aren’t as safe as they could be. By replacing your windows, you’ll be improving the overall safety of your home. That means you can rest easy at night knowing that everyone under your roof is that much more secure than they were before. Once again, this improvement, combined with new doors, can make your home the safest home in the neighborhood. And with that peace of mind comes a whole new homely feeling that didn’t exist prior to making these improvements.

QUIET THE OUTSIDE NOISE

If you live in a busy area, like a major city, you may believe that the outside noise that you hear inside of your home is unavoidable. It’s something that comes with living where you live, and you can’t make any changes to fix it, right? Wrong! While new windows might not be able to silence the outside noise completely, they can most likely quiet it down a good bit. And with that newfound silence comes the ability to relax easier at home, and even sleep better, which can do wonders for your overall health. So if you’re tired of hearing sirens blast throughout the night or the local train, consider getting new replacement windows. You might be surprised at how much quieter your home will be as a result.

IMPROVE THE APPEARANCE OF YOUR HOME

If you have an older home with older windows, odds are that every single issue that we’ve mentioned so far on this list is a problem that you deal with. And to make things worse, your older windows not only don’t function as well, but they also make your home look bad. Perhaps it’s the window frame or the way the windows were installed in your home. Or maybe it’s the windows themselves, which have gotten cloudy and suffered from sun damage over the years. No matter what it is, if you have older windows, they most likely look their age, which makes your home look bad, too. By getting a full window replacement, you’ll be improving the overall aesthetic of the outside of your home. The best part is, that you can even get more sunlight into your home with newer windows, too, which can be beneficial to you and your family’s health.

INCREASE THE VALUE OF YOUR HOME

When you add up all of the benefits of replacing your windows that we’ve mentioned on this list, you’ve got a lot of reasons why your home is much more valuable. And that not only makes it that much more valuable to you and your family but also to any potential buyers, should you decide to sell. Again, whoever is buying your home is going to want a home that is energy-efficient, comfortable, and safe. They’re going to love the fact that the HVAC system works well and the electric bill isn’t too high. And, of course, having a home that looks good is never a bad thing, either. So, if you plan on selling at any point in the future, your new windows can go a long way in helping your home stand out to potential buyers. And you might even be surprised at how much more money you can get for your home as a result.
