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.

"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!!"
