By reviewing Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey & New York Metro replacement windows reviews online we found there are some benefits that consumers seem to mention more often than not. We spent some time reading replacement window forums and talking to our own customers, and this week we want to tell you 5 things our customers – and others who have navigated the home window upgrade journey – think every homeowner should know before they buy new windows for their home.
1. Our Windows Are Finally Draft-Free!
Installing modern, energy-efficient double-pane replacement windows means no more drafty corners during the winter and hotspots during the summer because your old single-pane windows let conditioned air escape and outdoor air sneak in.
From Mike Cucciniello (Five Stars on Google Reviews)
“Second time having windows put in and once again an amazing job. Very happy with the windows. The rooms already feel cooler with the air on.”
2. We Have More Free Time
It’s true that well-built wood frame casement windows will last for decades with some maintenance and TLC. The question is, “How much time and money are you willing to invest keeping your old windows functioning well and looking beautiful?” If you tallied up all the time and money you would spend over the years maintaining single-pane, non-energy-efficient windows you might be surprised. And, when you factor in the hassle and time spent repairing outdated window components that fail due to age and remediating mold, rot and mildew, the expense is even higher.
From a homeowner self-identified as rinqreation on the Houzz forum discussing a recent upgrade with double-pane, duo tone, wood-grain replacement windows:
“Well worth the money (though it will hurt for a while) and not having to paint for the next 30 to 40 years is a major plus too!”
We recommend Fibrex replacement windows over traditional wood windows to avoid investing your precious time and hard earned money maintaining wood windows that often develop mold and mildew issues in humid climates like we have.
3. Don’t Forget the Window Screens
You may have to put up with a swarm of no-see-ums attacking you while you’re sitting outside or on a bike ride, but that doesn’t mean you should put up with irritating insects indoors. When you want to open your new windows to capture a cool breeze or improve ventilation, screens provide protection against those nuisances. Standard insect screens are always included with replacement window and patio door options. If you want to be sure you’re blocking even the tiniest flying insects consider an upgrade to ultra-fine mesh TruScene screens.
One homeowner who left the accessory decisions to the contractor (NOT Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey & New York Metro) had this to say after the installation was complete: “Only thing is that I realized as the summer came on that they hadn’t included screens. What were they thinking?!”
4. Blocking Noise a Surprise Benefit of New Windows
Ann Marie H offered this review in March (2016)
“My new renewal by Anderson windows have made a 100% change to my home, no more noise, no more breezes [drafts], just peace all the way around. I say they are worth the money a lovely home is income to my pocket. The staff very professional. Love you guys.”
Modern designs reduce noise transfer moving from outside to inside and vice versa. So, while you’re thinking about appearance, energy-efficiency and comfort, you can have peace of mind you’ll have less traffic noise and fewer privacy issues once your installation is completed. Remember, if you have areas where you want to block the view from the outside, you have four patterned glass options that obscure the view, without totally blocking natural light.
5. Window Installation by a Pro Team Matters
There is a common concern among homeowners just starting their replacement window journey – “How do I choose a reputable contractor to install the windows?” When you purchase replacement windows and patio doors from Renewal by Andersen, that will never be an issue. We only allow fully trained, certified technicians to install our home improvement upgrades.
If you don’t choose a skilled contractor familiar with the type and brand of windows you’re buying, you run the risk of damaging your new upgrades and potentially voiding your warranty. Plus, even if the installation happens to be done correctly by an outside contractor, you may not have a positive experience. You may be left with a mess to clean up after the workers are gone or you could have to rent a truck to haul off your old windows. Here’s what another customer had to say after the installation:
“I just had windows installed by your team from Jackson Street in Cranford and I couldn’t be happier. Miquel, Edwin, and Victor were punctual, proficient in their work, patient in answering my questions, and immaculate in cleaning the areas, to a point of not knowing any work was done there. I haven’t had any time to evaluate the window efficiency yet since they were just installed but I expect them to be as great as they look! Thank you! 5 star rating from me!” Marilyn K.
