Replacment Windows

One of the top questions we all want to know when thinking about getting new windows, what will be the price of replacement windows?  Can’t we just simply pick out our windows, look up some prices and go from there?  What is the purpose of having strangers into our homes, invading our space and taking up our time?


In-Home Estimate

Having an in-home estimate is one of the best, if not the best, ways to select your replacement windows and get accurate pricing.  Yes, it is having a company rep into your home, taking up some of your time and walking around your home to assess your current window conditions.  But, the benefits far outweigh the minor inconvenience.


How do you truly know what kind of window you need for your home or want extras you might want.  There are many variables when it comes to replacement windows:  vinyl, double pane, single pane, grids, double hung, casement, etc.  A good company rep will explain all the benefits and features of their windows and show you samples of their windows.  They will also go around and get preliminary measurements and take a look at any potential installation issues.


Finally, the price!  This is what you have been waiting for.  The benefit is that now you will be getting a price on the windows that you are knowledgeable about, are the correct size and have the level of energy efficiency that you are looking for.
