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 salesman had previously sold us new windows and was very informative and not a bit pushy. The installation was excellent and as advertised absolutely nothing was left for me to clean up. Highly recommend Renewal by Andersen of St. Louis👍"
