Basement Window Replacement

Basement window replacement is a job that might not seem that large since in many cases these window units are quite small. But the installation must be done right in order for the window to be weather proof and to stay properly in place over time. Dealing with a poured or block wall is no picnic in these replacement jobs. It is important to use caution especially while removing old basement windows in preparation for the new install. Homeowners who are not perfectly confident in their ability to handle this task should enlist the services of a low cost high quality installation contractor in their local area. Get some prices together on basement window replacement and compare local estimates from qualified installers to find the products and providers to help you get the job done right.

Replacing a Basement Window

Replacement windows are products that are specifically designed to install in existing homes. In this way they are somewhat different than units built to install in new construction applications or in window sill replacement. However, in the case of basements, sometimes the differences are very slight or even nonexistent, depending upon the type of windows in use and the original installation procedure. Replacing something like this is done for a multitude of reasons. In some cases if a sash is broken by a rock or some other object it is cheaper or easier just to pull the whole frame and start over than to deal with getting the sash replaced.

Sometimes in older homes basement window replacement is done because the old window just is not performing anymore for one reason or the other. Broken locks and latches, missing handles and screens, and cracked glass or bad seals are just a few indicators that it may be time to start thinking in this direction. Homeowners may not realize how much an energy efficient basement really helps. With vinyl replacement windows installed to replace drafty old ones, heat loss is minimized, making the area feel much warmer even with the upstairs thermostat set at the same temperature as always. This is nice whether the basement is used as an exercise area, play room, office, or entertainment center.

Selecting Frame Materials

As with all areas of the house, basement windows come in different materials. Glass block offers a bit more privacy, but double hung style units provide a possible escape route if trouble ever strikes and there is no other way out. Plus, a small slider basement window replacement unit also offers the advantage of providing ventilation in the summer, when some basements start to smell musty. Window replacement projects in these areas of the home have many different purposes, and sometimes the purpose is what drives the selection of frame materials.

If style points matter, we can still get wood frames for these products. Vinyl and aluminum are clearly the most common choices because on the interior and exterior side, these are notoriously the most neglected areas in the home. Replacement jobs for homeowners who can honestly say they probably won't be power washing or sealing the units any time soon after install should probably be done in vinyl or aluminum rather than in wood, regardless of style differences. There is no sense in creating trouble down the line, especially in homes that are not walkouts or anything of that nature. Basement window choices for these small units should really be dictated by the use they will get and the attention (or lack thereof) that they'll receive.
