When planning a window replacement, you shouldn’t just choose your new windows randomly or DIY the entire installation. Purchasing good -quality windows won’t be worth the investment if you don’t make the right decisions every step of the way. Doing otherwise will be a waste of your hard-earned cash. and you’ll be left unsatisfied with your new windows.
To ensure the money for your new windows is well spent, avoid the following:
Opting for a DIY window installation. If you’re planning to do your own window installation, you’re risking several things. What you might save on installation costs likely won’t make up for the possible issues you’ll encounter later on. There’s also no guarantee that your installation will be done perfectly: one missed step and your windows could be compromised. This is why it’s recommended to have new windows installed by professionals, as they’re fully aware of what goes into a professional window installation, from insulating the edges to installing the seals.
Choosing windows based on price. It’s important to consider how much you’re willing to pay for your new windows. Picking cheap windows usually isn’t the best decision because their quality may not be up to standard, and it’s unlikely that they’ll last as long as you want them to. You can always go for the more expensive ones, but a higher price doesn’t necessarily guarantee better performance. If you’re not sure what to choose, consult with trusted window and exterior remodeling experts such as our team at Eagle Creek Siding. We’ll help you decide on the right window product for your home, one that fits your budget as well as your needs and preferences.
Selecting the wrong type of window. As much as possible, don’t choose off-brand windows, as their quality is never consistent. We recommend going for tried and tested window brands with ENERGY STAR® ratings and warranty guarantees. Most branded windows are durable as well, and they only need minimal maintenance.
