When choosing replacement windows for your home, it’s important to consider all options before making a decision. Here are five important factors to consider before making an investment.

5 Things You Need to Know Before Purchasing Replacement Windows

  1. Who will be installing your windows. Proper window installation is a vital step in process. If your windows are installed incorrectly, they will fail over time.
  2. Warranty information. When choosing a replacement window company, it’s important to ask about warranty information. The company should offer a warranty on their products, as well as the construction and installation of the products. If the company doesn’t offer both, you should think twice before purchasing windows from them.
  3. Energy efficiency. Experts estimate that 90 percent of window heat loss occurs through the glass. Energy-efficient window glass is key to lowering your heating and cooling bills.
  4. What materials are the window made of? Before you buy replacement windows, ask the company what their windows are made of. Stanek Windows are made with premium vinyl with composite structural reinforcements. Because Stanek Windows controls the process from start to finish, including the manufacturing of each window, you know your windows are made with exceptional attention to detail and superior quality materials.
  5. Does the quote include all costs? Watch out for companies that tout the lowest prices in the market, because they may be too good to be true. The company could add on hidden fees for things like installation or manufacturing. When choosing a replacement window company, be sure the quote includes the costs of the entire project for your specific window sizes.

Why is Window Quality and Proper Installation So Important?

The proper installation of your windows is crucial to their long-term performance. If a window is not installed correctly, it will not seal properly, causing air to leave or enter your home. While some vinyl windows can be structurally weak, Stanek vinyl replacement windows are structurally reinforced, ensuring they will last you a lifetime.

If you want replacement windows that will last, it’s important to choose quality over price. While low prices can be tempting, you may end up spending more in the long run on maintenance costs and the potentially unavoidable cost of replacing low-quality windows that may fail over a short period of time.
