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.

"Renewal was fantastic! They kept you in the loop from ordering to installation. They informed you at every step of the process of what was happening. The installers were kind, courteous, and professional. Everything was cleaned up after the installation. It was as if they hadn't been there except to see your beautiful new windows. I highly recommend them."

"3rd time using RBA for window replacement. Again, a very positive experience, the windows are great, the installation was done right, the professionalism was apparent from start to finish. Still have existing windows to be replaced and will definitely use RBA again to do it in the future."

"Renewal by Andersen was a good experience for us in replacement of our windows. From the initial meeting with the sales representative, Leslie, through the waiting period for manufacturing, and then to the installment process, our experience was excellent! Communication is key for me and we were kept informed and updated as our windows were being ordered and manufactured. Calls to update us on the installation process were welcomed and appreciated. They know how much is too much so they don't pester you with unnecessary contact. We love our new windows!!! Did I say that already??😂 We can tell a major difference in reduced Street noise and also the temperature at our windows. Excellent company, highly recommend!!"
