Replacement Window Envy

Replacement Window Envy

‘Have you ever envied something your neighbor or someone else has? You know you shouldn’t, but you can’t help yourself. You might want that white picket fence your friend has or the luscious paint color a neighbor has. When you start looking at other people’s windows with green eyes, you might have McKinney, TX replacement window envy. But there’s no reason to be envious of what others have. All you have to do is take the project on yourself and you can have windows just as good—if not better—than theirs. Here are a few things to look for in other people’s windows, and then incorporate into your own.’


‘When you see replacement windows, notice the colors you appreciate most and what you’d rather avoid. Color plays a large part in how well the windows fit into the home. Most people simply use white when they go with vinyl replacement windows and that’s a great option. White is a fresh, clean color that goes with anything. The white windows go with your home’s color now and they’ll still go with the home later, even if you change the color. You might also find yourself drawn to something like black, which offers a nice contrast to light house. Or you might like the windows that blend in with the home’s colors.’

Extra Features

‘While you won’t be able to see things like triple pane glass or low—E coatings from the street, you can examine the other extra features your neighbors have that you might want. Perhaps you like the look of grids on windows or you really want a bay or bow window to give your home more architectural interest. You could also be intrigued by different shapes, like octagonal windows or circular windows in certain locations. If you like intriguing things like these, put them on your list for when you move forward with the project yourself.’

Inspect Energy Efficiency

‘You aren’t going to be able to tell who has the most energy efficiency in their windows by looking at them from the outside, but you can do some research online and in window showrooms and figure out what you want for your house. Don’t be jealous of other people for having low energy bills—get them for yourself.’
