One of the most common questions we hear when customers have decided to replace their windows is should they replace them all at once? While everyone is in a different situation, there are a few points to consider before making your final decision.
3 Questions to Ask Yourself when Replacing Windows
There are a few quick questions you can ask yourself to get you on the right track to replacing a few or all of your windows at once.
- What is Your Budget? – This is an easy starting point. If you don’t have the budget to replace all of the windows at once then you have your answer. It can get a little more complicated if you do have a budget large enough to replace, but not enough to get the style of window you are looking for.

- Will They Look OK? – If you are considering only replacing a few, will the new windows match the old ones? Older windows are often made from styles that no longer exist, making them hard to combine with new windows. Another aesthetic point to consider is what condition all of the older windows are in. If they are beat up or cracked, they are going to quickly become an eyesore against your beautiful new windows.
If you can’t outfit the entire house in new windows, consider doing one side at a time. For example, replace the entire front of the house and do the back at another time. This way, all of the windows you can see at one glance are the same. You can replace the other side when you have the money to do so.
- Are You Planning to Sell? – If you are planning to put your house on the market anytime in the near future, it is worth your investment to replace all of the windows. Not only will it increase your home’s curb appeal and value, but you will likely get a nice return on your investment.
New windows mean lower utilities bills.
Homeowners can expect lower electric bills in the summer since the air won’t have to be set as low, because the air conditioning is not escaping through the windows. Additionally, gas bills can be lower in the winter when your furnace does not have to work as hard to heat the house.
