What Not to Do When Buying New Windows

When investing in replacement windows you want to make sure you’re making a smart financial decision. Experts at All States Home Improvement can guide you and answer questions you may have during the entire process. Whether you are browsing different options or needing to replace a broken window, we can be a helpful resource to you.

If you’re a first-time homeowner or have never had to buy them before, we made a list of common mistakes people make when shopping for new windows. Follow these what-not-to-do rules and set yourself up with new windows that will last 50 years or more.

Buying the cheapest option for your new windows

We understand that this type of purchase can be costly but it’s important to buy good quality windows. If you are seeking out the cheapest window option you can find, it may be best to not replace your windows. Keeping the windows you currently have will be a cheaper option for you than making a costly mistake of replacing them with cheaper quality ones. There is a reason you are looking for new windows and you want that purchase to be an upgrade from what you currently have in your home.

Cheaply made windows can leak, build up moisture and let drafts into your home, causing your energy bill to skyrocket and needing you to replace them sooner than you would have hoped. Just because you got a good deal doesn’t mean you are getting a quality product that you will be happy with. You want a window that is energy efficient, looks good, and lasts for years.

Other companies who try to sell you their cheapest option will most likely do an unprofessional job when it’s time for the installation process. Here at All States Home Improvement, we are experts in our field. We are thorough in our installation process from start to finish, you can trust us to get the job done right.

To know if you’re getting quality windows consider purchasing windows that have certifications like Energy Star, AAMA Gold label, and The NFRC label.

Ignoring your energy bill for your home

Having your energy bill be automatically paid for and never looking back at past bills is a big mistake when it comes to owning a home. Dig out your past bills, compare them, and see if they have steadily increased. Has your bill increased each summer or winter? If so, your home may need new windows. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that windows account for 30% of heating and cooling energy loss.

Replacing one window at a time to save money

Staggering the window replacement process can be inefficient and disruptive. We can install new windows in a home with up to 10 windows in one to two days. All States Home Improvement recognizes that replacing all your windows can be expensive, so we offer financing options with payments starting at $98/month.

Do not DIY window replacement

We do not suggest replacing windows yourself. It takes a very skillful carpenter to install new windows correctly. You want your windows to be fully insulated around the window to eliminate drafts, have the seal correctly installed and for a perfect fit. Gain peace of mind with warranty protection on your new windows when using a skilled and trained window installer. Proper installation keeps your home and family safe from outside elements so make sure to use a skilled and experienced professional.
