The costs of a full-home window replacement can add up depending on the number of windows that will be replaced at a time. This is why some homeowners choose to have their windows replaced a few at a time — but is it a good investment? In today’s post, Hunterdon Roofing, Siding and Window Company weighs in on whether having your windows replaced a few at a time is beneficial.
Is It Possible to Replace Windows a Few at a Time?
Unlike most kinds of home improvements, windows can be replaced one or a few at a time. In fact, this is why window replacement can be done at any time of the year. A typical window replacement process involves isolating every room during installation. It helps keep air infiltration to a minimum as well as lets the house’s occupants stay during window replacement — without even needing to turn off the HVAC system.
Factors to Consider
Having your windows replaced a few at a time is a good option if parts of your home need new windows than others. It will also help manage your budget easier if you are planning on undertaking other exterior renovations. But before you commit to a partial window replacement, consider the following factors first:
Less potential savings — Energy savings is one of the greatest benefits of getting energy-efficient windows. Replacing the windows a few at a time might not let you enjoy as many savings as you would with a full-house window replacement. You are more likely to gain savings if the rooms in your home are cooled individually with mini-split air conditioners.
Labor costs can add up — The cost of spreading window replacements over several appointments will incur labor costs that can add up.
You have to keep your home in good shape — Home improvements that are spread over multiple projects are planned under the assumption that the house will stay in good condition during that time. This means you have to keep up with your home’s maintenance requirements, or you have to space your window replacements closer.
