3 Mistakes to Avoid When Replacing Your Windows

Most windows are built to last. In fact, the average window can be expected to last roughly 10 to 20 years before it starts to deteriorate. Be that as it may, no matter how durable your windows are, they will eventually need to be replaced. If the seals are beginning to weaken or if you notice that your utility bills have suddenly skyrocketed without any drastic changes in energy consumption, then you definitely should consider having them replaced. If this is the case for you, here are three things that you should avoid when shopping around for replacement windows.

3 Mistakes to Avoid When Replacing Your Windows

1. Making Your Decision Based on Price Alone

At first glance, all windows may look the same. However, you definitely get what you pay for when it comes to replacement windows. As mentioned above, your windows will protect you and your family for decades to come, which is why you should not skimp on them. Purchasing an inferior product that is likely to fail prematurely might actually end up costing you more money in the long run.

2. Not Doing Proper Research

Window technology has improved by leaps and bounds over the last few years, so it is important to do your research before purchasing new ones. These days, there are many glazing options, finishes and security features to choose from so be sure to do your due diligence before pulling the trigger.

3. Replacing Your Windows Yourself

Some articles and videos on the internet will have you believe that replacing your windows is easy. Unfortunately, this is far from the truth. If you do not have any experience in replacing windows, we highly recommend hiring a professional to do the job to avoid costly mistakes.

"The service provided by Renewal by Anderson is great, both on the sales and the installation side. Our sales representative was very accommodating and helpful. The installation crew was efficient and they all were professional. These are really nice windows and a great upgrade especially from builder-grade windows."

"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!"
