How to Estimate the Cost to Replace Windows
The best replacement windows vary depending on the kind/type of window being replaced.
Be cautious when choosing a replacement
When replacing any window in your home you need to be sure that the replacement will be durable enough and that its construction will aid in longevity. The use of super spacers to prevent leakage of gases between panes will be an important part of ensuring that your windows last. Many companies take a short cut by not using super spacers and substitute them with metal spacers instead. The higher end units tend to utilize super spacers and for good reason. They prevent an otherwise 10% leakage per year that you'll experience when using metal spacers.
