Many homeowners think that replacing their old windows is a simple enough task and one that doesn’t require too much planning or even a consultation with an expert. While getting replacement windows is indeed easy enough, it is still very important that you speak to a product consultant before handing over your check.
In today’s post, your friends over at Renewal by Andersen® of Denver shares the three questions you should not forget to ask your window company before getting new windows.
1. Ask About Window Operation
A common mistake people make when getting new windows is not asking how a window operates. After all, a window is a window and they are all pretty much the same, right? Wrong. There are certain window types that are better suited for your home depending on the function you want it to perform and where you want to install it. For instance, if you are worried about security, then casement windows have a superior locking system. If you would like to have an unobstructed view of the outside, then picture windows are the way to go.
2. Ask About Hidden Fees
This is a real concern and a lot of homeowners looking to get new windows do not think to ask about any hidden fees when signing the contract. For example, many window installers will clean up and discard your old windows at no additional cost, while others may charge extra for the service.
3. Inquire About Interior and Exterior Finishes
If you are replacing your old windows, then chances are you already have an existing theme or look around your house. By selecting the right finishes for your new windows, you can maintain the harmony of your home’s overall design and architecture and prevent making your new windows stick out like a sore thumb.
