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.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
