DEBUNKING 4 MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT REPLACEMENT WINDOWS

Replacing your windows is a big decision. To lessen your anxieties, you should ask about replacement windows with your neighbors or local contractors. Listening to different suggestions can broaden your knowledge about your home remodeling in St. Louis, MO. You can also pick up some misconceptions easily.

Debunking 4 Misconceptions About Replacement Windows

As the premier source of high-quality windows, Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis, debunks four replacement window myths that often cloud the judgment of homeowners, such as:

Myth #1: Vinyl Is the Best Window Material

Vinyl is a popular choice for window frames today because of its durability, affordability, and aesthetic appeal. Nonetheless, we offer various options for your replacement windows that can offer these aspects and more. Our Fibrex® window frames are made of composite of wood fiber and thermoplastic polymer. They offer the durability of wood, with the low maintenance of vinyl. They can also retain their structure regardless of the weather. They are resistant to rotting, warping, and decaying. They also have inherent energy-efficiency features.

Myth #2: U-Factor Alone Determines the Energy Efficiency of Windows

U-Factor is the amount of heat that is lost through a window. The lower the U-Factor, the more energy-efficient your window is. Although it is a good measure component, it is only one factor used to determine the energy performance of a window.

Your window’s visible light transmittance, solar heat gain coefficient, and air leakage are also important in identifying your window’s energy efficiency. Our windows in St. Louis come st andard with our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. This allows natural light entry, adequate ventilation, and effective thermoregulation for your indoor comfort.

Myth #3: Windows Replacement will Disturb My Home’s Structure

Many people are hesitant to undertake a window replacement project because they are afraid that it will require tearing out their exterior. Expert window installers, like Renewal by Andersen, have years of experience and skills in replacing windows. We assure you that we can replace your windows without disturbing the structural integrity of your home.

Myth #4: Installation is Not that Important.

Although materials are important in replacement windows, the installation is equally essential. A poorly installed window can be difficult to open and close. It is also more susceptible to be leaky or drafty.

To maximize the effectiveness of any window, you can turn to Renewal by Andersen of St. Louis. We have the expertise and knowledge in proper installation of windows and doors in St. Louis. We observe quality sealing techniques and ensure proper fit in every installation job.

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
