Selecting the best replacement windows for your home can seem confusing because there are so many manufacturers for windows, and they all make what sounds like the same claims. Let’s look at a few basic principles that will assist you as you sort through the issues, and find windows that will give you the best value for your money. It is important to develop a clear understanding of what you expect the purchase to do. Naturally, you want to choose windows that will increase your insulating properties as well as decrease your heating and cooling costs. The energy efficient windows of today, if they are ENERGY STAR™ rated, can reduce your energy bill by significant amounts. Keep in mind that when deciding on a window, you should consider the lowest possible U-Factor and the highest possible R-Factor.
After you have decided what type of window you want, you should consider choosing an established company with first rate products and a solid warranty program. Warrantees should range in length based on the quality of the window line, and the manufacturer should offer a product line that carries a lifetime guarantee. You can be assured that a company that produces a line of windows carrying a life time warranty also makes very good windows for its basic lines as well.
Choosing a manufacturer
Aside from the window itself, choosing a solid Company is of the utmost importance. Your Home is your largest investment and when choosing new windows, you owe it to yourself to not only educate yourself on the features and benefits of the product, but also the reputation of the window manufacturer. Additionally, it is important to choose a window manufacturer that utilizes an installer as a dealer. This means that the installer has a close relationship with the manufacturer, and it is in the best interest of the contractor to make sure that the windows are installed properly and backed up with a workmanship warrantee.
Choosing a Greensboro contractor
The company that you choose should be a member of the Better Business Bureau. The company should be highly rated by its customers because the best reference for any company comes from its existing customers. A company with a long history in one place should be paramount. The window installation business is too competitive for poor performers to survive. A company that has been in business for many years means that they are experienced and that they most likely have solid, experienced, and trustworthy. Chances are great that such a company will be around for years, even decades after the sale. The best contractors also offer workmanship warranties, should a problem or service issue pop up.
