Pros and Cons of Installing Storm Windows

Winter can sometimes be a challenge—especially if your windows aren’t up to the task! To restore your comfort and drop those miserable heating costs, you might be considering window replacement this year.

What’s a Storm Window?

These are basically the same thing as, and perform a similar function to, a storm door. A storm window is an auxiliary window installed on the exterior (or occasionally interior) of your existing windows. The storm windows provide an added layer of both insulation and defense against storms and the bitter winter weather we experience once n a while in LA.

Is a Storm Window Installation the Right Choice for Me?

Well, it depends. Storm windows offer up a bunch of advantages, but they won’t fix every problem. The real answer is going to rely on a few important factors that are specific to your and your home. To help you get a better idea, let’s take a moment to look at the pros of storm windows, and the cons.

The Benefits of Installing Storm Windows

  • Highly cost-effective. A storm window installation is much, much less costly than a total window replacement, making it a great option for homeowners on a bit of a budget, or looking to save up for a bigger replacement job in the future.
  • A fast and easy solution. Window professionals can install storm windows in no time, making them a good “I need it now” option to reduce the chill of winter or to baffle the buffeting winds of a storm.
  • Additional protection of existing windows. If you’re quite fond of your current windows and want to put off replacing/protect them against the elements, storm windows are ideal.
  • Versatile. There are a lot of  options for installing storm window, from track storm windows to magnetic. This means you’ve got a lot of options on what to choose, and how you want your storm windows to operate.

Living in sunny California we probably won't be in need of storm windows, but you just never know!
