When researching for replacement windows you’ll often find window experts giving you their top tips on buying quality replacement windows. But what about the top mistakes to avoid? By knowing what not to do, you can ensure that you're getting the best value for your money and that your new windows will meet your needs for years to come. Here are our top mistakes to avoid when buying new windows.
Rushing the Decision Making
One of the most common mistakes most homeowners make is rushing the decision and buying whatever is readily available at the local window supplier. Take the time to research your options and find a high-quality product that can meet your needs and budget. Make sure the windows you choose tick all the boxes in the areas that are important to you, such as energy efficiency, noise reduction, and privacy.
Don’t Forget to Consider Future Maintenance Costs
Many people only take into consideration the initial cost of windows and installation, but it's important to remember that windows are an investment. Depending on the type and material of the windows you choose, you may need to factor in costs for maintenance, cleaning, and painting down the road.
What about Security?
Another mistake is ignoring security. While windows are great for providing a view and bringing in natural sunlight, they should also keep you safe and secure. When buying windows, be sure to consider the safety and security features that are available. Ask your window provider or contractor what add on security options they have available to see if any fit your needs.
Hiring the Wrong Window Installers
Finally, hiring the wrong window installer can be a costly mistake. Be sure to do your research and hire a reputable, experienced window installer who can get the job done right. One way to know you are getting qualified installers is to choose a company that is certified. Check for certification such as Pella Certified Contractor or Andersen Certified Contractor – they are highly trained to install your windows to manufactures specifications.
