How Many Windows Should I Replace at Once?

New windows can be a great way to update the look of your North Carolina home while improving its efficiency and comfort, but if you’re only having problems with a few windows, should you replace them all or just those few? It can be tempting to go the cheaper route, but in many cases, that can be a mistake.

How Long Do Windows Last?

If your home in Charlotte or Greensboro is more than a few decades old, it’s not surprising that you’re starting to have problems with your windows. Many windows can be expected to last 20 to 40 years. Here are the life spans of the most common types:

  • Wood windows typically last 10 to 20 years before they start to rot, crack, or warp
  • Aluminum windows can last 20 to 25 years before the frames or seals begin to fail
  • Older vinyl windows last 20 to 40 years before they begin to deteriorate or fail
  • Fiberglass windows can last 20 to 50 years before they need to be replaced

Once a few of your windows start to fail, there is a good chance that the others are not far behind if they are of a similar style and age.

The Benefits of Replacing All or Most of Your Windows at Once

When an installer comes to your home for the initial measurement, as well as the final installation, some costs will be similar whether you install one window, two windows, or a few dozen, such as travel time, mileage, and more.

By combining such fixed costs and dividing them between multiple windows, you can minimize those charges and the costs for the entire window installation. Plus, if all your windows are old, drafty, and unattractive, it makes sense to replace as many as you can.

The benefits of replacing multiple windows at once include:

  • Updating the look and style of your home
  • Ensuring all your windows match
  • Adding significant value to your home if you sell it later
  • Reducing drafts, hot spots, and cold spots
  • Preventing water damage from leaking windows
  • Reducing energy usage throughout your home
  • Lowering your heating and cooling costs
  • Improving your comfort and air quality
  • Reducing HVAC load and improving efficiency
  • Increasing the service life of heating and cooling equipment
  • Simplifying the installation, financing, and paperwork processes
  • Reducing window maintenance and repainting
