At Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey, we have a strong commitment to provide homeowners with all the information they need to make wise decisions about buying replacement windows. We believe it’s more likely that you’ll achieve the home improvement goals of your and your family’s dreams if we give you the tools and resources you need to make sound replacement window choices.
If you’re thinking about upgrading the windows and/or patio doors in your New York or New Jersey home, here’s a quick step-by-step guide to help you understand our process.
Step 1: Your Personal Home Inspection.
Our customers usually reach us by calling one of our professional window consultants or sending us a web inquiry to learn more about the different types of replacement windows we offer. Because we can’t recommend the best-fit home improvement products for your home without seeing your property first hand, we schedule a convenient time to meet with you in your home.
If you have a partner, spouse or significant other that resides in the home with you, we ask that both of you be present for the meeting. While we understand that perhaps only one of you makes the decisions about the home, we’ve found that we have the most satisfied customers if we can get input from both of you about decorating styles, the performance features you expect and any financial concerns you each may have.
If you’re staging your home improvement project, we’ll help you identify which windows should be replaced first. During the inspection stage, we’ll take a tour of your home, looking for weak or damaged windows and landscaping elements that could impact energy-efficiency. We’ll also gather precise measurements for every window in your home to ensure your custom-built windows fit perfectly into your existing window openings without any reconstruction.
Step 2: Designing Your New Jersey Home’s Replacement Windows
After the inspection, your consultant will help you compare different styles and accessories. We are equally proud of each window style we offer, but every window isn’t right for every room – or even every wall in a room or every person. Here are a few things we’ll talk about during the design phase:
- Window Styles. Casements, double-hungs, awnings, bays or bows and sliding windows all offer unique benefits for homeowners. For example, if you want to maximize your viewing area and aren’t concerned about being able to open a particular window, you might choose a large picture window. If ventilation is the most important window feature for your bathroom, you might choose an awning style window that is easy to open, even when installed over the tub or counter.
- High-Performance Glass Options. We offer four different Low-E glass options designed for New Jersey homes – plus a line of patterned glass to add extra privacy. Whether you want to control the amount of visible light that comes into your home, or you’re more interested in saving money on your heating bills, we have an option for you. Ask us about our Energy-Star performance ratings to learn more about how much you can expect to save when your replace inefficient windows with Renewal by Andersen Energy-Star rated replacement windows.
- Colors and Accessories. We have dozens of color combinations, hardware finishes and optional grille patterns to help you capture your personal style. You can use the Renewal by Andersen visualizer tool to get a better idea of how each color combination will look in your home before you make a final decision, too.
Step 3: Creating a Financial Plan
After you’ve discussed high-performance frames, styles, glass options and accessories, your personal replacement window consultant will write up a project plan with prices for your consideration. This is a good time to discuss financing options, discounts and staging goals.
Step 4: Placing Your Custom Replacement Window Order
Once you’re comfortable with your decisions and you sign the agreement, we’ll send the order to our state-of-the-art factory. Our team of experienced craftsmen builds every window according to the exact measurements and design details you choose. It takes several weeks to precisely build your windows.
Step 5: Installation Day
The factory sends us notification when your windows are ready for shipment and we’ll contact you to schedule a convenient time to install your new windows. Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey replacement windows are built to fit the footprint of your old windows so, there isn’t any major reconstruction required.
