So, you’ve made the decision to update your New Jersey or New York metropolitan home with high-quality replacement windows. Smart choice. If you’ve done any research, you’ve probably learned that replacing outdated, damaged windows can improve energy-efficiency, possibly helping you reduce your heating and air conditioning bills and improving the view inside and out. But, if you can’t decide which replacement windows offer the best value, maybe we can help. At Renewal by Andersen, we understand this is a serious decision and one that shouldn’t be made in haste. Here are seven things we think you should consider before you choose a brand.
#1. Comfort: An ideal replacement window, starts with superior craftsmanship and materials. The final product provides opportunities to control indoor temperature and air quality, which enhances your comfort year-round. Whether you choose a single- or double-hung style, a casement window or a specialty shape, your windows should allow you to block unwanted air and moisture from flowing through and around the window. With weather-tight windows, maintaining a comfortable temperature is easier, and usually less expensive. And, when weather permits, you can always open the sash to ventilate your spaces with fresh, healthy air.
#2. Confidence: Choosing a brand with a solid reputation in the community gives you peace of mind that is hard to put a price tag on. Look for a window dealer who offers a strong warranty, preferably one that covers everything – including the installation – and is fully transferable.
#3. Clarity: Modern glass manufacturing processes eliminate discolorations and make it possible for you to have a perfect view through your windows. Even replacement windows with factory applied coatings to reduce harsh light levels (glare) indoors shouldn’t create distortion. Properly built windows have spacers between the panes to stabilize the glass so you enjoy the benefit of better insulation without diminishing your line of sight.
#4. Convenience: Opening and closing operable windows should be effortless. When deciding which replacement windows offer the best value, look for sliders you can literally open with one finger and easy-clean styles that allow you to lift out panels or tilt-to clean designs that make it convenient to clean the entire window from inside.
#5. Customization: One of the advantages of buying replacement windows is the flexibility to customize your windows to your needs. Choosing accessories like window grilles, insect screens, paint colors, trim width and hardware styles and finishes give you total freedom to design beautiful home windows with functionality that best serves your family and your lifestyle.
#6. Configuration: Every home has distinct architectural elements. You can choose to replace existing windows with a similar shape and style, or go back with something totally different. Updating your home by replacing a large picture window with a bay or bow window is an opportunity to add a bit of floor space without investing in major construction. Casement windows can be configured with hinges on either the left or right side, which can be very valuable when you need to accommodate certain architectural features, but you prefer the crank-out style over a sash that you raise and lower.
#7. Cost: Price is often a major factor, but it shouldn’t be the only consideration. If you choose the best home improvement products for your upgrade, over time your window investment will save you money on heating and air conditioning bills, and increase the resale value of your home. You’ll save money on maintenance – no more painting and resurfacing to keep your windows performing perfectly and looking beautiful – and you’ll reduce the time you spend cleaning your windows.
