If you’ve been thinking about replacement windows or doors for your Eagle, Idaho home, then you might not know where to go. You may be thinking that you could get some quality windows and doors from your local home improvement superstore, either the one with the blue awning or the one with the orange awning.
Either way, you’re going to be wrong. There are plenty of small to mid-sized companies throughout Idaho that can provide the best replacement windows and doors for your home, and they would not only offer you much better windows and doors, but also better quality as well.
What is it about the mega home improvement warehouses?
Still, many homeowners throughout Idaho will turn to those home improvement stores where they can just built something or do something or have access to just about any products that they need to get the job done, but there is something that too many of these individuals don’t realize about these companies.
The quality of the products they sell are low.
That’s right. When you go into one of these store, you’re thinking that you’ve found a goldmine, that you found the only place that you’ll ever need to go in order to get everything that you need for your home. That seems great, doesn’t it?
Of course it does. But what about quality? While you may find some products that are decent, if you begin to shop around among some of the few hardware stores or tool outlets that are still in business today, then you’re going to realize that the quality of those products that these mega stores offer is lower than what you will find at a smaller store.
First, these big stores focus on getting their customers in through the doors based on price. The know that the average American consumer wants to save as much money as possible on anything and everything that they purchase, so they have scoured manufacturers from all over the world and found the cheapest possible products that they can find, and that’s what they bring in for sale in their stores.
Just walk down the lumber aisle and look at the quality of wood that you can have access to. Most of it is cheap, warps easily, and is just full of knots and other blemishes. That might not be a big deal to you, but it is to someone who cares about quality.
You could even walk down the aisle with tools. They might look nice, but when you shop around, the tools that are of a decent quality or not cheaper than you’ll find elsewhere.
Now, what about windows and doors? When you go to these stores, you’re going to quickly realize that the prices they advertise are great. You could find any type of window for your home at a price that most other window and door specialists simply can’t beat.
You shouldn’t shop for this home improvement project based on price alone, though. You should shop based on quality. And at these stores, what you’re looking at is actually low end, entry level types of windows that won’t do very much for your home. They won’t offer you the best energy efficiency. They won’t help to increase the value of your home. They won’t even look that nice once you have them installed. They look great in the store, on the shelves and that’s because they are new and you’re surrounded by concrete. Pictures are often doctored or the images and interior design are set up to make those windows appear to be ideal.
Why are we saying all of this? It’s because when you want to know where to shop for your new replacement windows and doors, the trap is set. You will be drawn to one of these major companies and you will see the prices and you will believe that they are good quality windows.
Then the sales associate who might actually get around to having time to help you, after an hour or two waiting around, will convince you that those windows are just as good as any others you’ll find out there. They’ll convince you that the reason their prices are so much lower is because they have purchasing power and a special relationship with the manufacturer.
It’s nonsense. Windows that are priced cheaply are made cheaply. It’s that simple. There isn’t a lot of money to be made selling windows and doors. There’s not a high profit margin and if you were to ask any small to medium size window or door company in the area about what you’d find in these mega home improvement stores, you’ll hear basically the same answer.
Low quality windows.
If you’re more concerned with spending as little as possible on your new windows or doors, that you’re prerogative. However, when you want the best replacement windows and doors, shop elsewhere.
So where can you find the best windows and doors?
You can choose from a number of small to medium sized companies throughout the area and find some quality windows. Some of these stores, though, don’t cater to the unique characteristics of homes that you find throughout Idaho. They might have one or two manufacturers that they deal with and can certainly deliver custom made windows and doors for any home.
