Replacing Single Window Fixtures
Do you have a broken window that you need to replace as soon as possible? Are you weighing your options and trying to figure out how to keep down the overall cost of the project? If you do you have a damaged window fixture, there could be a few practical and cost-effective ways to replace it. This article is a basic guide to single window replacement and should be particularly helpful if you need to replace a broken window fixture immediately.
Single Window Replacement
Many homeowners would love to replace every single window fixture in their home if only for style reasons. Of course, installing new window fixtures throughout your home is also going to increase the insulation and make your home more eco-friendly. It is worth noting that, when you buy more windows, your cost per fixture goes down significantly. However, if you have 20 windows in your house, the discounts aren't going to be nearly enough to make the project affordable. While it can cost well over $20,000 to replace all of the windows in a single-family, two-story home, replacing just one fixture might cost about $1000.
Finding the Perfect Match
Some people are skeptical about replacing just one fixture. What do you do if you can't find an exact style match? What do you do if your window manufacturer no longer makes your exact product? This is where the professional window installer can be the most helpful. First of all, with their knowledge of all the available products, they will be able to help you find the closest available match. Even more importantly, they will be able to install your new windows to make sure they match perfectly.
That is, they can create custom casements that are painted and designed identically to your existing window fixtures. In fact, while you are having one window replaced, it might be a great opportunity to paint all of the casements around your house. This simple paint job can dramatically improve the look of your windows. Also, the paint on the outside of your home is going to fade over time, so it will be hard to match the faded color with a brand new paint. Painting all of the fixtures solves this problem.
Replacing a broken window can be a bit of a headache, but it is not something you want to put aside. The project is always going to be cheaper and faster if you get it done sooner. For more information, contact a company like Bi-State Window & Door Inc.
