A patio door and window replacement may be less disruptive compared with other remodels. Nevertheless, poor planning would render it more stressful than it should be. For your project to go smoothly and pay off, here are the things you shouldn’t do:
Don’t Commence without a Design
A patio door and window upgrade may not be as big as a roof or siding replacement, but it won’t work if you lack a clear design. You can’t just buy products and install them without putting in some serious thought. Your choice of windows and patio doors in Portland should meet your specific needs.
At Renewal by Andersen® of Portland, we’ll help you plan the design. Our skilled consultant will meet with you to talk about the performance and aesthetic aspects of your replacement fixtures. Our representative will also inspect your home and identify any structural challenge that may arise during the job.
Don’t Be Indecisive on the Details
Delays, especially weather-related, are sometimes inevitable, but you can minimize them by finalizing all the design elements of your Portland door installation and window replacement. You may have a few ideas along the way and ask to tweak something in the design, but keep them to a minimum.
Don’t Undervalue Material
As much as you want to cut your costs, avoid skimping on material. The material of your windows and patio doors define most of everything about them—beauty, efficiency, durability, weather resistance, and maintenance. Instead, choose the material that finds the right balance among these areas.
Compared with other solutions, our Fibrex® combines everything you love about wood and vinyl, minus the drawbacks. Rest assured that your replacement windows in Wilsonville will perform at a high level, remain intact with extreme changes in temperature, and last a long time.
