6 Tips to Buying the Right Replacement Windows

Selecting windows for your home can be a daunting task. Like any specialized area, window technology is constantly changing and these essential home components can be difficult to understand. Before you make your decision and commit to what will likely be a substantial investment, learn from these helpful replacement windows tips.

TIP 1:

Become an educated consumer so that you can make smart decisions about this major investment. You deserve the best value for your hard-earned dollars, and you want windows that you’ll never have to replace again.

TIP 2:

Select windows with premium-grade vinyl frames and sashes. Technological advancements made over the past decade make vinyl the best material choice for energy efficiency, durability, low maintenance and beauty.

TIP 3:

Choose “custom-made” windows. Though the initial purchase price may be higher than standard sized windows, they’re the best value in the long run because installation is faster and practically no “cosmetic” work to the inside or outside of your home is needed. Plus, an exact fit means better thermal performance and lower energy bills!

TIP 4:

Replacing windows is the perfect time to try something different to give your home a fresh, new look. Consider all the various styles, shapes and colors in which windows are now available. Today, window options offer new benefits—from enhanced security and protection against damaging UV light to sound or energy control and new-found comfort for your home..

TIP 5:

Select ENERGY STAR® qualified windows and doors from a manufacturer that participates in the ENERGY STAR program. With continuously rising energy costs, high-performance products will keep your heating and cooling bills lower—and provide a greater level of comfort for your home.

TIP 6:

Choose windows from a specialty dealer who represents a reputable manufacturer. Consider the growth and stability. What do others, including past purchasers, say about the company? What kind of warranty does it provide?
