When comparing replacement window and patio door brands in New Jersey and New York, you need to be sure to compare apples to apples rather than just looking at who offers the lowest price. One way to do that is to ask each window dealer the same questions about how their products are manufactured, the average life expectancy and how to take care of your new windows and doors.
This week, the Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro team put together four basic questions we believe you should ask (and, our answers to each one) before you decide which brand to work with as you upgrade your existing home windows and patio doors.
#1. How Much Maintenance Is Required?
Today, it is possible to manufacturer modern, high-performance replacement windows that require almost zero maintenance to keep them looking beautiful for decades. Fibrex framed windows are guaranteed never to fade, peel, flake or rust, and we back our windows with one of the finest warranties available to give homeowners the peace of mind they expect from a trusted partner.
#2. Where Do I Go for Help Designing Windows that Add Comfort, Safety & Value to My Home?
A reputable replacement window company provides a start-to-finish project management service that guides you through each stage of the replacement window journey. Your personal representative is available to discuss your energy efficiency needs and decorating vision from the comfort of your own home during the initial consultation. And, the consultant is with you through every step, even after the installation is complete, to help with any questions or issues that arise.
#3. Who Should Install My New Windows & Patio Doors?
We believe that the most qualified person, or crew, to install your Energy Star certified replacement windows has special training on the factory specifications and installation requirements of every window they install. After all, the best window installed improperly is not going to perform to the manufacturer’s specifications. That is why we only allow our own installation crews to perform this very important task. Our 20/2/10 warranty provides two full years of parts and labor coverage, which is double what some brands in the area offer.
#4. How Does Your Price Compare to Other Window Dealers?
Price is an important detail for most people. The investment of updating windows and patio doors to enhance energy-efficiency and beauty can be one of the most expensive home-related purchases beyond the initial cost. Whether you pay cash or finance your home improvement project, be wary of fast talking dealers who offer prices that seem too good to be true. Make sure that your contract includes an itemized list of all fees and extra charges, and that you aren’t paying extra for essentials like window glass and hardware – we have heard of some disreputable dealers advertising a discounted rate that did not include those important features.
When you confirm answers to the important questions above, you will be in a better position to decide which replacement windows and patio doors are the best fit for your family, and which brand is offering the highest value for your investment.
