Tips for selecting new windows:
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.
Select windows with premium-grade frames and sashes. Technological advancements made over the past decade have made the best material choice for energy efficiency, durability, low maintenance and beauty.
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 you home is needed. Plus, an exact fit means better thermal performance and lower energy bills!
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 like enhanced security and protection against damaging UV light.
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.
Choose windows from a reputable manufacturer. Consider the manufacturer’s growth and stability. What do others, including past purchasers, say about its products? What kind of warranty does the manufacturer provide?
