Installing replacement windows in Fountain Valley, CA is likely going to require a sizable investment on your part. So if you only have a few windows in your home that are giving you problems at the moment, you might be considering replacing those windows and leaving your old ones in place. It sounds like a pretty good way to save money on replacement windows. 


Taking this approach will save you money in the short term. But it’ll likely end up costing you in the long run in a number of ways. Here are some of the reasons why replacing all of your home’s windows at once is almost always your best option. 


It keeps the look of your home’s windows consistent. 

If you have wood windows in your home right now, you might be under the impression that, as long as you replace a few windows with new wood ones, they’ll look right at home. But this probably isn’t true. While you might be able to find windows that are a close match, you likely aren’t going to find new Fountain Valley, CA windows that look exactly like your old ones. As a result, people will be able to tell that you have mismatched windows in your home when they look at them. It’ll hurt the appearance of your home both inside and out.  

It gives you the chance to enjoy all the benefits of installing new windows. 

One of the biggest benefits of installing new windows in your home is that it’ll make your home more energy efficient. But if you only install a few new windows at a time, you won’t be able to enjoy that particular benefit. Your home might be slightly more energy efficient if you install a few new windows. But it won’t be as energy efficient as it could be with all new windows.  

It increases the value of your home. 

Another big benefit of replacing all your windows at once is that it’ll bring the value of your home up. In most cases, your home’s value will increase by about 70 to 80 percent of the cost of your new windows as soon as they go in. But it’s a benefit that you won’t get to take full advantage of if you only replace a few windows. In fact, replacing several windows could actually bring your home’s value down if your mismatched windows dramatically affect your curb appeal.  

It helps you save money over time. 

Initially, you might save money by replacing a few windows instead of all your windows. But eventually, you’re going to need to get around to doing total window replacement. And you’re likely going to pay more for windows when you buy them a few at a time as opposed to all at once. Most window companies will extend you a better deal when you buy your windows in bulk.
