Norwood Window Replacement

Windows might not be absolutely necessary when you get right down to it—but nobody wants to live without the natural light, fresh air, and views they provide. In fact, windows are one of the most defining features of our homes and do a lot to make our indoor spaces livable, comfortable, and appealing. For something that is largely made of glass, they're surprisingly resilient. That doesn't mean they'll last forever.

When considering window replacement in Norwood, MA residents sometimes assume that it's just a matter of taking out the old glass and putting in a new pane, but window units are more complex than just a sheet of glass.

Full-Frame Replacement Vs. Pocket Window Replacement

If you've noticed some of the signs that indicate it's time (or possibly well past time) to get a window replacement, Norwood, MA handyman professionals will start by asking if you're looking for a pocket replacement or a full-frame window replacement. These two replacement methods have some notable differences, along with their own sets of pros and cons that are worth knowing about.

Full-frame replacement, as the name suggests, means that the entire window package is replaced. Your Norwood handyman will start by removing the existing unit, leaving just the rough opening behind, and then insert a new unit that includes the frame, panes, sashes, and muntins or mullions in one package. Pocket or retrofit replacement, on the other hand, means removing the sash and panes, along with the muntins and mullions if it has them, and putting new sashes and glass panes into the old, existing frame.

The main trade-off to keep in mind when choosing between full-frame or pocket Norwood window replacement is that pocket installations are generally less costly than full-frame, but they do reduce the amount of visible glass by several inches. If you already have a small window, that may not be a sacrifice you're willing to make. It's also worth noting that the existing frame needs to be in good condition for pocket window replacement, with no warping, rot, or other types of damage. If the frame itself has suffered damage, full-frame replacement is the only viable replacement window option.

Frequently Asked Norwood Window Replacement Questions

Can Norwood Window Replacement Reduce Energy Costs?

If you currently have one or multiple windows that are deteriorated and letting in moisture or air drafts, or you have an old home with single-pane windows, Norwood window replacement can make a considerable difference in how much you have to pay on your energy bills by reducing the energy usage of your HVAC system.

Your heating and cooling system is likely the biggest expense on your energy bill, and that's true of most homes, whether they're in a warm or cold climate. Your furnace and air conditioner need a lot of fuel to keep your house at a comfortable temperature year-round. But when your house has issues like deteriorated or damaged windows that are allowing heat transfer to occur, it puts additional strain on your HVAC system because it has to operate more often and for longer periods of time to compensate for the warm or cool air that is escaping through the damaged window unit. Naturally, that extra energy usage can really increase the energy charges on your utility bill.

Getting Norwood window replacement services to swap out an old, deteriorated, or single-pane window with a new energy-efficient window can make a difference to your budget but also really improve the comfort of your home and prevent it from suffering further issues such as water damage from a leaking window frame. Energy-efficient windows feature low-emissivity (low-E) coatings to block UV rays and typically include two or more panes of glass that are sealed together at the edge with a small insulating gap between them. The gap can be filled with argon gas for extra insulation to prevent heat transfer.

How Much Does It Cost for Window Replacement?

While it makes perfect sense that local homeowners want to know how much Norwood window replacement will cost so they can make the best possible decision about what's best for their budget and their home, there are just too many factors at play to give an accurate cost assessment for window replacement cost until our window experts have more information about your unique property, the needs of your household and the steps necessary to bring back its efficiency, appeal, and comfort.

Whether you seek energy-efficient options or affordable options, our installation professionals are happy to guide you through the process. However, here are some of the factors that can impact the final cost:

  • Size and number of units being replaced
  • Ease of accessibility
  • Climate conditions
  • Style of window
  • Cost per window unit
  • Pocket or full-frame installation
  • Single-hung windows or double-hung windows

Once we've had the chance to assess the project in person, we'll be able to explain our recommendations clearly and offer you an honest, upfront cost for the work that needs doing. That way, you know exactly what you'll be paying before we get started on the work and can decide if it is the right move for your household.

What Time of Year Should I Get Norwood Window Replacement Services?

When you live in colder climates like Massachusetts, where it snows in the winter, it's best to wait for warmer weather in late spring, summer or early autumn to schedule Norwood window replacement services. After all, there's going to be a big hole in the side of your house while the replacement is underway, and no one wants that when it's below freezing, and the snow is blowing. However, if you do need window replacement during the winter and simply can't wait, it is possible to do it then. Some people think it's not feasible because the sealant won't cure properly in cold temperatures, but there is sealant available that can cure in very cold weather if necessary.
