Shopping For Replacement Windows

Renewal by Andersen Offers Tips to Simplify the Process

WOONSOCKET, RHODE ISLAND – 11/19/2010 – Windows play an integral role in your home. Beauty, comfort and increased energy efficiency are all excellent reasons to replace your old windows. Plus, when windows are leaky and don’t work properly, they can be frustrating to operate.

Window shopping, however, can be trying for some consumers, especially considering the maze of choices. Experts at Renewal by Andersen offer consumers these window-shopping tips to simplify the process:

Work with trained window experts.

Trained window experts will help you understand a window's performance, answer questions about energy efficiency and provide sound advice about your window replacement project.

Choose high-quality windows with a reliable warranty.

Carefully read the warranty information before you purchase your windows. Consider asking the following questions about the warranty:  How long does it last? Does it include installation? What is excluded from the warranty? Is it fully transferable?

Choose windows that are custom-made to exact measurements. 

To maximize performance and provide long-term energy efficiency, a replacement window must fit well in the opening. Choose replacement windows that are custom-built to precisely fit each window opening in your home.

Use professional installers. 

Installation is a key component to any window replacement project. Even the highest quality windows will underperform if installed incorrectly. Choose installers that can provide technical expertise and judgment for determining the best installation method. Better yet, choose a company that includes installation as a key part of their window replacement process with installation included in their warranty.

Choose low-maintenance windows.

Windows made from composite materials can be a good option for homeowners who like the look and strength of wood windows but also want the low-maintenance features of vinyl. Composite windows don’t need ongoing staining or painting to maintain their natural beauty, saving time and money.
