Building a new home from the ground up can be a very exciting endeavor for a homeowner. It can also be incredibly stressful. There are a lot of decisions to make. And some of these decisions will affect not only the look of your new home, but also performance. One of these decisions is your windows.
Not only do windows play an important role in terms of curb appeal, but they are also incredibly integral in the comfort and efficiency of a new home. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), windows account for 25-40% of your annual heating and cooling costs. As you can imagine, the right windows make a ton of difference.
Tips for Selecting the Right Windows for a New Home Construction
- Do Your Research: The Internet is filled with all of the information you will need to find the right windows for your new home. Read up on product information, as well as customer reviews. The more information you find, the more confident you can be in your final decision.
- As Your Architect and Home Builder: Your architect and home builder have (more than likely) been in the home construction business for several years. They should have some insights on the best windows on the market. They will also know which windows work best in your area and which windows work best with the existing home plan.
- Ask Local Window Suppliers: Local window suppliers work with the industry’s top brands on a daily basis. They will have insights into the industry that few others will.
