A good set of windows adds a big boost to your home’s aesthetic and overall curb appeal. But these windows are exposed to different elements, which may compromise the material. If you’re worried about this, then a full-frame window replacement can freshen up your windows and your home. Here’s how.
A full frame window will give you more glass real estate. Most traditional windows usually suffer from the lack of glass visibility or space. With full frame windows, you get all the glass real estate that you want, improving the overall view from your windows.
If you are planning on just getting a window insert, one of the issues to note is that the new insert won’t always match the frame. There will always be a difference in texture and color, since the frame will always bear the weathering it has sustained over the years. Once you go for a full-frame replacement, the color and texture of the insert and frame of your windows will match.
Full-frame window replacements are more energy-efficient than inserts because the frame and the pane are designed for each other, creating a better hermetic seal. This window will thus help improve your home’s insulation regardless of the season, which can also improve your energy efficiency.
You may think that window inserts are the easier option because you no longer need to get rid of your old frame. In this case you have to constantly check if the pane fits your old frame. You might also need to check if the frame will last as long as the new insert. In order to have a more beautiful yet low-maintenance new window installation, choose full-frame windows for your home.
