Investing in new windows offers numerous benefits, from reduced maintenance requirements and smoother operation to fewer drafts and better energy savings. For some homeowners, however, it can be a significant undertaking, especially with all the technical details that come with these types of products. Fortunately, there are ways to determine whether replacement windows are of good quality or not. Here’s what to look for:
Look for windows with attractive hardware and durable sashes and frames. When choosing a style for your home, you can either match them with your existing units or select a completely different style that suits your home’s architecture.
Effortless operation is a sign of good-quality replacement windows. They should open and close smoothly, with cranks and locking devices capable of withstanding heavy use.
3. Window Glass
Our high-quality window replacement units feature two glass panes with argon gas fill in between them and low emissivity (low-E) coating applied on the surface. Be sure that the products you choose have these features as these will play a vital role in keeping your home energy-efficient and helping you achieve better energy savings during summer and winter.
High-quality replacement windows are covered by extensive warranties. Make sure your window warranty provides coverage for labor and parts, especially the frame material and glass. You can even find window warranties that are fully transferable, which means the remaining terms apply to the next homeowner. This is something worth considering if you are planning to sell your home in the future.
