Homeowners usually know when to replace their old, drafty windows. However, getting replacement windows can be a pretty expensive venture. As a result, many people are unsure whether to replace a few windows at a time or all windows at once. Here’s what you should keep in mind when deciding how many windows to replace.
Do You Have to Replace All Windows at Once?
No, you do not have to replace all windows at the same time. You can choose to phase the replacements over a timeline that better suits your comfort and budget needs. However, your safety should always be your first priority. For example, if your basement windows are shattered, they may serve as an entry point for burglars. This puts your family in danger, so you should have them replaced first. Cost and energy efficiency are other factors to think about when replacing your exterior. If you still have single-pane windows, replace them with double- or triple-pane windows.
Can You Save Money on Replacement Windows?
One way to save a significant amount of money is to replace five to eight windows all at once. Most times, the contractor can offer you a deal on the installation service because the team will be fully occupied on a specific day. Just be sure to consult with your project manager regarding the most economical and efficient schedule. That being said, the total cost of replacement windows will be less if you opt to install more, no matter the window type.
