In this post, we’ll discuss how to get replacement windows, from start to finish. There are many homeowners that overlook their windows. Where it may seem like a mundane feature of a house, I can assure you that it is not, and it all comes down to efficiency. Their purpose of providing a pretty view and letting natural sunlight pour in during a lovely afternoon is enticing, yes, but maintenance is key in all things pretty. So, in turn, as a homeowner, it is your undying duty to not let your windows go to waste. Today, we’ll go through the steps on what you can do as a homeowner to make sure your windows continue to do what they do best – Shine!
Do I Need Replacement Windows?
Here are a few simple things you can do to find this answer:
- Make sure your windows open and close properly. Remember that windows are another exit way in case of a fire or a similar emergency.
- If air leaks in, out, or around the window. This is where efficiency comes in. If there is a passage for air to come in and leave, then money is literally flying out of the window. No one likes high utility bills.
- Notice any condensation or fogging that occurs on or between the glass.
- Appearance wise, chipping, deterioration, or water stains on or around the window. To put it simply, stain equals water damage equals mold
- Outdated style or style that does not blend with the rest of the house. Windows shouldn’t stick out in a negative way, ya know?
Where to Get Replacement Windows?
Without a doubt, the best place that ensures quality, energy-efficient replacement window is Andersen. Simply stated, they’re a top-notch, best in the business line of windows whose proficiency relies on craftsmanship and durability. They’re stunning. Andersen has an abundance of styles and designs fit for any home, so you’ll have no problem seeking a product that blends. But, honestly, the main point that grabbed my attention when I first discovered Andersen years ago while working with my father in his home remodeling business, is its ENERGY STAR rating component. I’m quite sure you’ve heard of this rating scale. In fact, if you’ve walked around any home improvement store, it’s extremely difficult to miss. But basically, this system allows a homeowner to numerically see just how efficient a product is. Simple. Easy to measure. Highly informational.
