Key Things to Look for in Aging-in-Place Replacement Windows

You need to consider a couple of factors when getting new windows for your home. When planning a window replacement project, it should be your goal to get units that evolve with your changing needs as you age. If you have older loved ones at home, make sure that your windows are suitable for them as well.

Read on to discover the key features you should look for in an aging-in-place replacement window. 

Easy to Open and Close

Ideally, aging-in-place replacement windows should be easy to open and close. Sliding windows are easier to operate for aging individuals than double-hung windows. Another option is to go for windows with simple, smooth cranks. 

Minimal Maintenance

You want to get window frames that do not need as much maintenance, such as Renewal by Andersen®’s Fibrex® material. This material is twice as strong as vinyl and long-lasting. It is not like wood frames that need regular sanding or repainting and are prone to rot. Fibrex features the natural appeal of wood, but it is virtually upkeep-free. This durable frame will help you save on energy costs by keeping your home well-insulated.  

Improved Privacy

Today, you have a wide range of options when it comes to improving the privacy of your windows. One of the most popular ways to increase the privacy of windows is by adding acrylic blocks with different parts and films.

"We absolutely love our new windows. We had an awful wind yesterday and the windows keep the breeze and the sound out. Our previous windows did not do that and we are so happy with the quality and the installation was superb. The guys were professional and did a great job. I would recommend this company to any who want to improve their home. "
