Common Window Replacement Mistakes That You Can Avoid

The right set of replacement windows can dramatically improve your home’s beauty and energy efficiency. With the vast selection of replacement windows on the market, finding the right one can present some challenges. In today’s post, local replacement window company Renewal by Andersen® of Wyoming helps you with your search by looking at common mistakes that you can (and should) avoid when choosing replacement windows.

Window Replacement

Choosing the Lowest Estimate

A low estimate can certainly be tempting when you’re shopping around for new windows. However, price shouldn’t be your driving factor when making a choice. Cheap replacement windows are priced like that because of compromises like uninsulated frames and single-pane sashes. The contractor may enlist unskilled installers to cut down on labor costs. Reputable contractors like us will not compromise just to give the lowest estimate because we know that the true test of quality of replacement windows is in its long-term performance.

Ignoring the Importance of Professional Installation

Workmanship is an often-overlooked aspect of window replacement. But it is, nevertheless, a crucial aspect — after all, even the best replacement windows will fail if not installed properly. Poorly-installed windows typically have alignment issues, improper sealing and sashes that open and close on their own. When hiring a replacement window contractor, make it a point to ask about their experience, the training that their installers receive, and whether or not they have a workmanship warranty.

Not Considering Maintenance Requirements

As part of your home’s exterior, windows require maintenance every now and then. People often mistake “low maintenance” for “no maintenance,” which often leads to problems like foggy windows, damaged seals and discolored frames. Fortunately, true low-maintenance options exist. For example, Renewal by Andersen® replacement windows have features like High Performance™ Low-E4® glass, which is resistant to water spotting, and Fibrex® material frames that only require water and dish detergent to keep clean. If you’re in charge of your home’s upkeep, you’ll want windows that will stay looking good without needing a lot of elbow grease and cleaning products.

"This crew was every thing they said. They showed up on time, did a professional job on the install. I was there and they answered every ?? I had. My mane concern was the sealing of the door being that it was on north side of the house. We could tell a big difference after they were done. Thank you Renewal by Andersen doors/ windows of Wyoming."
