Are you getting ready to start a home renovation project? Have you thought about hitting some of the local home shows in our area to get some inspiration? Some of the best relationships we have with our Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey & New York Metro replacement window customers started at a local home show.
3 Reasons You Should Take Your Family to a Home Show to See Replacement Windows
#1. Consult With Contractors One-on-One
Whether you are talking replacement windows and patio door styles, or checking out the latest trends for kitchen counters and backsplash designs, it helps to talk directly to the brands about products and services available. While we strive to keep our website up-to-date and packed with information, there’s really nothing that compares to a face-to-face conversation where you can ask questions about your personal concerns. You learn a lot about a company by their answers to some of your difficult or non-traditional questions.
#2. Touch and Feel the Products for Yourself
Home shows often have their products on display. You may be able to actually open and close a sample replacement window, so you know whether you like the single-handle operation or you prefer a lift-type window – like the single- and double-hung designs. You may know that you want to stain interiors to match your existing décor, but when you see the colors up close, you might be surprised to find out you actually prefer a different combination. The same goes for home improvement products for other areas of your home. When you can slip into a bathtub and stretch out, you get a true sense of whether the style, size and accessories are what you are looking for in your home.
#3. Get a First Hand Look at the Newest Innovations on the Market
If you don’t know which replacement windows you should buy when you want to boost energy-efficiency or whether you prefer tilt-to-clean styles over lift-out panel features in some sliders and replacement patio doors, seeing what is new on the market may help you make better decisions. Brands often release their newest innovations at home shows, or display prototypes that will hit the market in the next few months. Attending a home show is an opportunity to learn about emerging trends, and products that are still in the development and testing stage. You may find that you’re willing to wait for the next wave of wall paint colors to become available, or decide to put off updating kitchen appliances based on what you see and hear at the show.
What Can You Expect When You Chat With a Renewal by Andersen Representative at a Local Home Show?
When we set up a booth at a local home show, we try to give homeowners an opportunity to experience replacement windows and patio doors similar to the way they will in their own homes. You’ll see full size samples of various window styles, grille patterns, glass options and hardware. You can try out the fixtures, get a feel for how easy they are to clean and see the difference between a standard insect screen and the TruScene model with ultra-fine fabric that banishes those no-see-ums to the outdoors. Plus, you can ask all the questions you want, and you’ll be able to schedule a home consultation on the spot with a personal representative if you’re ready to move forward, or you would like an estimate for installing replacement windows in your home.
We participate in several of the local trade shows every year, and we look forward to getting to know more of our friends and neighbors better this year, too. Even if you haven’t made up your mind about the scope of your renovation, or exactly when you’ll get started, it is never too early to start your research. Besides, home shows are a fun way to spend the day.
