1. Don’t Accept the First Lowball Offer  - You know the feeling you get when something sounds fishy? This should be the reaction you have when you receive an insanely low window estimate. Lowball window offers typically mean two things: the quality of the window is very low, or it’s the base price for the window that includes no features. This means the window likely won’t make a big impact on your utility bills. - Just remember that if the quote sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
  2. Get Your Windows Professionally Installed - Once you pick your perfect windows, don’t take this as an opportunity to tackle a DIY project. The truth is that window replacement is best if you allow the professionals to handle the process. This is because insufficient installation can lead to all sorts of problems, from window leaks to drafts and major energy loss.
  3. Take Advantage of Extra Aesthetic Options - Although white vinyl windows are a classic option, there is no need to stick with the same-old-same-old. If you’d rather have your exterior contain a little more pizzazz, you can choose other vinyl paint colors such as beige, red, and even green. - Aside from the color of the frames, homeowners can also consider upgrades such as decorative glass and grids. Decorative glass adds intricate detail to your windows, while grids can enhance traditional-style homes such as Tudors.
  4. Be Mindful of Energy Saving Options - Installing new windows without energy-saving technology won’t do you (or your utility bills) any favors. To get the best bang for your buck, your new windows must include features such as dual or triple pane glass. Triple pane is not only energy efficient, but it also provides sound-blocking technology to keep your home’s atmosphere calm and quiet.

Argon and krypton are energy-saving gases that should be included in every window. They are responsible for enhancing the window’s efficiency, making your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Lastly, don’t forget about low-e. This is an invisible glazing that is applied to the window’s glass. Its purpose is to reduce ultraviolet rays from coming into your home and helps control heat transfer.

Fall is a wonderful time for window replacement. Keep these tips in mind for a hassle-free window replacement project this season.
