Are you ready to buy replacement windows for your home, but all the options and wide-ranging prices seem confusing to you? Here are five important factors that will help you make the right decision.
5 Questions To Ask Before Purchasing Replacement Windows
- Who will install your windows? Installing windows properly is extremely important. Incorrectly installed windows will fail over time.
- How about warranty? When selecting replacement windows, ask about warranty information. Look for a company that offers not just warranty on their products, but also on the installation. If a company doesn’t offer both, think twice before purchasing windows from them.
- Are the windows energy efficient? Glass is responsible for up to 90 percent of window heat loss. To lower your cooling bills, choose energy-efficient window glass.
- What are the materials? Take a close look at the materials used to make the windows. Are they specifically designed for a tropical climate? At ARC-CMR, we only use uPVC materials that are specifically designed for the local temperature and humidity.
- Does the quote include all costs? Beware of companies that advertise the lowest prices in the market. You know the saying “too good to be true,” right? Often companies add hidden fees for installation and even manufacturing. Before you choose a replacement window company, make sure the quote includes the cost of the entire project, not just the windows.
Why is Window Quality and Proper Installation So Important?
The way new windows are installed impacts their long-term performance…and your satisfaction. Incorrectly installed windows won’t seal properly and let cool air leave, keeping your A/C bill unnecessarily high. While some uPVC windows can be structurally weak, VEKA uPVC windows and doors are reinforced, ensuring they will last a lifetime.
If you want replacement windows that will last, choose quality over price. While low prices may be tempting, you could end up spending more in the long run on maintenance…and might end up replacing them sooner than you planned.
