DIY Window Replacement

It's not as hard as you might think it is to replace a window. Usually, I prefer to have an experienced glass company take care of it when I need a window replaced, but sometimes, they can't get to me as fast as I'd like, or I can't afford a new window right away. I keep a few inexpensive panes of glass and some supplies in my garage so that I can temporarily replace a window until I can get the glass company to my house to install a better one. This is definitely something that anyone could learn to do, so I decided to start a blog about it to try to teach others how to replace windows. Whether you're temporarily replacing a window or you want to do a permanent job, you can learn the basics here in this blog.

    If the windows on your home are over ten years old, chances are that they don't compete with new, energy efficient models. When it comes to window efficiency, it's often measured in U-factor specific to windows as opposed to R-value—which is the resistance to heat flow within your home's roof, flooring and walls. The lower the U-factor stated on your home's windows by the manufacturer, the better insulating properties it demonstrates. If your windows are outdated, unsealed or cracked, it may be time for an upgrade.
