Remodeling projects are expensive, and you want to save as much money as possible while also repairing the problem areas around your home. When it comes to replacing windows, many homeowners wonder if you can replace one or a couple of windows instead of them all.

While technically, you can replace a set of windows at a time, it may not be the best strategy. You need expert advice from our window replacement team in Plainfield, IL. Read on to learn how our team at Opal Enterprises can help determine if you should replace all windows at once.

What Determines When to Replace a Window?

Every year, thousands of homeowners across Illinois invest in replacement projects. Their reasons for doing so may vary. Some want to replace broken or damaged windows that are negatively affecting comfort, privacy, and security.

For many who want to replace old and outdated products, it’s more a matter of improving curb appeal. So, like a lot of things in life, deciding on how many windows to replace depends on your situation.

There are some apparent signs a window needs replacement. Some of the most common factors that can help you determine whether to replace them or not include:


Simply put, if one window does not open or close properly despite regular maintenance, it should be replaced as soon as possible. Otherwise, your home will be susceptible to drafty windows, which can drive up your energy bills. But that’s not all; your home won’t be as securely protected against intruders, who can easily exploit the flaws of poorly functioning ones.

Furthermore, ones that can’t open as wide as you want will limit the amount of ventilation you can enjoy. For these reasons, if you have several compromised ones, it’s smart to replace as many as your budget allows. In cases like this, a whole-home replacement may well save you time and money in the long run.


Curb appeal and interior appearance are two of the biggest factors behind window replacement projects. Homeowners want their homes to look good, whether you live in a classic Chicago bungalow or a multi-flat Greystone. If aesthetic enhancement is your reason for considering a replacement, a whole-home project isn’t necessary.

Depending on the location, switching out one or a few outdated or unattractive ones for visually striking options can greatly improve your home’s appearance. In fact, many people who desire a rich aesthetic upgrade install only a single-bay or double-hung window. This simple stylistic change can create a new focal point that goes a long way toward transforming both your home’s exterior and interior.

If you want to transform the look of your entire home, replacing several windows or undertaking a whole-home project may be more suitable. By carefully choosing your window styles and design options or selecting matching styles, you can create a design theme that wonderfully complements your home’s architecture. Of course, this means your investment will be greater, but so will the rewards.

One question remains: what if only one or a few windows need replacement?

What if You Only Need One Replacement?

You do not need to replace all the windows in your home, although it is recommended. There is an option to break up your project over several years. You need to work with a reputable contractor who can work with you over the years. Most contractors will take on a project like this if the homeowner can agree to do five or eight at a time. Anything less, and the company is unlikely to split up the project.

When splitting up your replacement, you can usually work on one or two rooms at a time. The best way to split up the project is to first focus on the problem areas, such as damaged windows.

Next, work on ones that are beginning to show the subtle signs mentioned earlier. The last step of replacement is upgrading the newer ones for better energy efficiency and to match the rest of your home.

Do Windows Have a Life Expectancy?

While you can replace them, after wear and tear, they have a life expectancy. Every 20 years, you must replace them.

Depending on the size of your home, we can complete a total replacement job in a few days. While you will be inconvenienced for a few days, it is better than spending years replacing your windows.
