Octagon windows are a shining star in the world of accent windows. They are unique in style and function but like anything else, they may need to be updated. If your wood octagon window has experienced some sort of decay, you should replace it to avoid further damage to the wall.
To help keep costs down, explore all of your options for replacing the window. Research different window manufacturers to find a trustworthy supplier with fair prices. Be sure to also consider shipping costs, if any, in your totals. Keep in mind that different types of glass (and other clear materials) are available at various price points.
However, remember that your home’s windows are an investment, and ultimately you get what you pay for.
Installing the New Window
For the installation, you have two options: hiring a professional or doing it yourself. The main benefit of hiring a professional is that you can rest assured the window will be installed correctly without leaks that increase your energy bills. However, if it’s more important to you to save money upfront, you can always tackle the project yourself.
New replacement windows will have installation instructions to guide you through the installation process. There are also many resources online for tips on how to make the process of removal and installation go smoothly. Take the time to research what tools you will need and what replacement materials will be required before beginning the job. This will help with budgeting cost and time spent to complete your project.
