If you’ve ever thought about putting replacement windows into your Webster Groves, MO home, you probably know a lot of the benefits already. They’ll be more energy efficient…they’ll make your home more comfortable…they’ll lower your bills…they’ll give you better curb appeal and so on. But there are some additional benefits that aren’t as obvious and aren’t talked about as often. If you’re thinking about replacement windows, you need to know them all! Who knows, perhaps these benefits will push you over the edge towards making a big change in your home.

Nothing fades any longer

Older windows, especially those with just a single pane of glass, let the sun through to its fullest. While you might appreciate the natural light, you probably don’t like what it does to your flooring, furniture, window treatments, and other items. Those things fade! And fast! Especially if they’re on certain sides of the house that gets the most sun.

When you get replacement windows, however, you don’t have to worry about that issue any longer. Many modern windows come with low-e coatings on the glass, and if the windows you choose don’t, you can always add it. These coating are designed to allow the maximum amount of sunlight in without allowing UV rays through. You don’t have to worry about any more fading, and yet you still have the sunlight you desire.

Things are suddenly quieter

Sure you’re excited about higher levels of energy efficiency, but what about lower levels of noise? Maybe you’ve gotten used to the cars that drive by too fast or the neighbor’s barking dog, but with new windows, you can adjust to a new, quieter normal inside your home.

Of course, no window can block out all noises, but noise pollution in your home will be lessened a great deal with replacement windows. If you choose triple-pane glass, you’ll notice even more of a difference. Talk to your window consultant about the options if noise is an issue in your home.

The house is more secure than ever before

Of course windows are the most vulnerable point in any house and older windows are simple and easy to break or slide open. Replacement windows, however, just aren’t. They’re hard to open from the outside and they’re harder to break as well. If you want your family and possessions safe, replacement windows are a great option for added security.
