Last post we discussed a technical aspect of vinyl vinyl replacement windows. Welded corners vs. mechanical corners.
This time we discuss getting a great price on home replacement windows.
How come finding the best price replacement windows can seem like solving a Rubik’s cube while juggling? Before you say no one can solve a Rubik’s cube while juggling check of the video at the bottom of the page.
Of course we all want to get a great price on new windows for home but in order to get the best price you are going to have to do a little research.
Now I have measured, installed, sold and bought a countless amount of windows in my 18 years and remodeling. So I’m going to layout simply what I would say if I was giving advice to a friend.
First you need to know what type of window is best for your home. Now if are looking get the best price on your replacement windows in most cases you’re going to want to go with a vinyl replacement window. They are the most economical choice when it comes to window replacement.
Second you’re going to want to get the at least the minimum options that make the window energy Star qualified. These are things like low-e and argon. If this sounds like something from a comic book just check out this other article detailing what makes a window energy efficient.
Third you MUST to get a MINIMUM of 3 quotes. that make sure that you are comparing apples to apples in those quotes. Window salesmen love to push whatever is most beneficial for them and you could have several quotes pricing different types of replacement windows for you. This is why it is important to know what type you want before the appointment.
Now if you don’t know who to call I would first ask friends and family. Also coworkers and see if anyone’s had windows installed for them lately. Find out who they used to get the recommendation or non-recommendation. The biggest window companies in your area are not always going to have the best price replacement windows.
Another option is using a free online service with contacts to local window installers in your area. These window companies are eager to please because they want to continue to receive referrals from online potential customers.
