Are you on the edge of making one of the smartest upgrades you’ve ever done for your home? When it comes to getting a return on investment, replacement windows are hard to beat. But picking out new windows isn’t as simple as pointing at a picture in a catalog. There are a lot of details to consider. After all, you’re going to have those windows for a really long time. You don’t want to be stuck with a purchase you’re not completely happy with.
At Window World, customer satisfaction is our top priority. When you’re happy, everybody wins. That’s why we’ve put together this list of top considerations when choosing new windows. Take a quick peek and see if you’ve thought of everything.
WHAT FEATURES MATTER MOST TO YOU?
New windows come with new features. It is important to take a few moments to think about what features matter most to you. Some windows can be opened and will allow air to flow in. Some windows do not open and are meant to let the light in. Bow and bay windows can give you an area to put a place to sit and enjoy a good book or a spot to place plants and decorations that sparkle in the sunlight. Single hung and Double hung windows are great for letting a little light in, but where they shine is in how easy they are to clean.
WHAT WINDOWS WILL FIT THE STYLE OF YOUR HOME?
If aesthetics are important to you, you’re going to want to take into consideration the style of windows you’ll be putting in. Windows with grills may be perfect for a Colonial or Cape Cod style home, but you might want to go with a double hung if you have a cottage style home. Round portholes may be perfect for a Victorian or Neo-Victorian home, but a modern home will look better with casement windows. It also matters where you place the window. Even if the window style complements the style of your home it can look out of place if it is put in the wrong spot.
