If you’re like most homeowners, your house is probably the largest investment you have ever made. The windows in that house are a key ingredient in your investment. Not only are they your eyes to the outside world (who would want to live in a house with no windows?), but they are essentially “holes” in the building envelope that protects you and your family from temperature extremes and inclement weather. For these reasons, and many more, it pays to protect your home investment by not cutting corners when it comes time to replace your windows.
Window replacement isn’t cheap, and for good reason. The right windows protect and add value to your home for years to come.
When you begin your window replacement journey, it’s important to choose high quality windows that will be installed by a knowledgeable, reputable installer. It’s tempting to cut corners on the window products and installation to save money, but cutting corners can lead to problems that could haunt you (and cost you) for years to come.
Low Quality Windows May Have Poor Energy Efficiency
Windows have been improving in energy efficiency for many years, but it takes a well-designed window made from high quality materials to be truly energy efficient. In order to keep out drafts and extreme temperatures, windows must be made from the right energy-efficient glass and quality window frame materials.
Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro windows are made from high performance, low-E4 glass. Renewal by Andersen products achieved their energy efficient status after years of testing and countless rounds of design improvement. All Renewal by Andersen windows are made with dual pane insulated glass and strong, energy efficient window frames to provide insulation and protection of your family indoors.
Inexpensive Replacement Windows Don’t Last
Inexpensive windows are often made from materials that degrade with time, while high quality windows are made from long-lasting materials that can last for years without breaking down.
Renewal by Andersen makes windows from materials that are designed to last for decades and are warrantied for 20 years to prove it. Renewal by Andersen’s warranty is also transferrable, so anyone who buys your home will be able to take advantage of the same high level of protection. This provides even more value to your home should you decide to sell during the warranty period.
Renewal by Andersen window frames are made from Fibrex, a long-lasting composite wood product that’s virtually maintenance free. Fibrex is made from resin and wood pulp, creating a product that looks like wood but wears much better. Fibrex won’t rot from exposure to water, nor will it mold. As a result, Fibrex never needs to be stained or painted like most other window frame materials.
Cutting Corners Leads to Poor Installation
Have you ever heard the saying that you get what you pay for? Cutting corners when it comes to window installation can lead to poor installation. A badly installed window can negate any of the benefits of that window and cause problems like water damage, leaks, mold, mildew, drafts and other issues in your home.
Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro windows never have this problem because they’re always installed by Renewal by Andersen trained installers. When you buy windows from Renewal by Andersen, you pay for installation with the price of the purchase. Renewal by Andersen installers are fully qualified and well-trained. This gives you peace of mind when the installation is taking place, and for years after.
