Getting Replacement Windows In San Antonio For Style
When you buy a new home, the most important aspect of the home is, “will I enjoy this house?” Issues and flaws you notice only after closing can give you a bad dose of buyer’s remorse.
For example, windows in San Antonio homes that don’t match updated exteriors are a real eyesore. Imagine giving a home a Spanish-style makeover, but leaving colonial-style windows? Believe it or not, it happens more often than you think in San Antonio home renovations. A homeowner has a grand idea and attempts to achieve it in phases, then something comes up and they have to move, or run out of funds. The mismatch can lower the value of a home drastically.
So naturally, when it comes to replacement windows in San Antonio for added curb appeal— you have to decide which option is better for your budget and design constraints.
Replacing A Single Window
Let’s say you take the window-by-window approach due to your smaller budget. Replacing an outdated inefficient window with an attractive new high-efficiency window is going to give a boost to your curb appeal. Here’s the problem though, it’s going to look mismatched with the rest of your home. We strongly recommend against this approach.
However, if this is the route you must take, start with the back windows first and work your way around the front. Driving up your driveway every day and seeing mismatched windows is going to gnaw at you. When it comes to single replacement windows in San Antonio one by one, the rule is out of sight, out of mind. If you can’t afford to upgrade your entire house with windows, there is a bit of a compromise.
Go For Multiple Windows
You can give your home an instant upgraded look with replacement windows in San Antonio by just replacing the front windows. Sure, the back windows will not match, but how often do people see the backside of your home? Once you save up again, you can then go back and bring the back windows up to date. One tip though— use the same San Antonio window replacement company to make sure you get the same models you have in front. Also, try not to wait more than a year to avoid your style being discontinued.
