Here’s Why Name-Brand Products Are Better for Your Home

As a homeowner, you might be thinking about which brand you should go for when replacing your windows or patio doors. This isn’t always easy as there are several brands. And, with all of them offering similar products, you’d probably think that it won’t matter if you choose to go for a cheaper and lesser-known brand.

The quality of windows you install in your home makes a big difference, and choosing to cut corners will only lead to more issues down the road. Here’s what our team at Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis has to say.

Why Window Brands Matter

Off-brand companies may offer warranties, but will often fail to honor them. They might even offer warranties and end up not being in business long enough to honor them. And, even if you think window brands don’t matter, other people won’t likely share the same opinion. This can become difficult if you’re planning to sell your home later on when a potential buyer finds out you’ve installed windows from unknown manufacturers.

When you choose to get your sliding patio doors and window products from well-known brands, you can be sure that what you’re getting passes a certain standard of quality. This is especially true for older and more established brands as they’ve stayed in business after weathering various economic storms.

How You can Choose a Good Window Brand

If you’re looking for a good window contractor for your replacement job, you can start by checking out the National Fenestration Rating Council® (NFRC) list of window companies and manufacturers. The non-profit NFRC is an industry group composed of members of the window manufacturing industry. This list can help you narrow down the choices to only the brands that are top rated. By choosing windows from NFRC members, you’ll get a certain level of quality that you won’t really find with lesser-known window companies.

Reviews

"We had a large picture window and two side windows replaced. Everyone from the person who took our order to the installers were top notch. We got exactly what we wanted. Granted, we had to wait a few months, just like you do for everything these days, but we were told that up front. The windows were well worth the wait. We've replaced windows before by going to home maintenance stores. Don't waste your money on those. Our Renewal by Andersen windows look great, they operate like a dream, and are worth every penny. Quality through and through."

"My new windows look great!! I can feel the difference in my house and my furnace is no longer staying on constantly. My installation crew was polite, tidy and speedy. It couldn't have went better"

"The workmen were very professional and did a great job. Cleaned up everything. I am very pleased with the new windows. Beautiful!"

B. Young | RBA OF ST. LOUIS, MO - MARYLAND HEIGHTS

"From start to finish everyone we dealt with were total professionals.. The project process was well communicated, the installers did an excellent job and the windows - I’m so excited about our new windows! They look great. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I am looking forward to cleaning them. And it was obvious immediately that the insulation is vastly better than the old windows. Also, I am just a customer who gets nothing for this endorsement. I just appreciate good service and an excellent product. This company knows how to do it right."
