Things to Remember About Window Replacement
There may be several reasons why you wanted to replace a home windows. Whatever those reasons are, I bet you are still in a dilemma of how and what would you choose. Cost, quality and warranty are the basic considerations in choosing a window replacement but there are still other things that must be taken into account before you close the deal.
Decide which type of window replacement you like. You may choose from cheap vinyl to expensive wood. Cheap vinyl is ideal if you don’t have any plan of staying long in your house or condo say less than five years.
Make appointment for free in-home estimates. Once you know what type you choose to have, contact at least three window replacing companies and make an appointment for their free in-home estimates. This way, you could have three sources to compare.
Categorize the pricing. Take note of these two categories in replacement window: window price and installation price. Break down the pricing in these two categories from the three reference companies that you’ve asked.
Ask about the windows warranty. Some replacement window companies provide warranty on parts and services but there are also others that do not offer this package. Instead, their windows have transferable warranty. When windows have a transferable warranty, you can transfer it to the next owner during the time of the warranty.
Ask how long your order would take. It’s common for window companies to inform you about a month’s long processing to add some pressure factor on you until you decide to file your order as soon as possible. Take note that the normal duration is from two to three weeks.
