When you’re looking for the best replacement windows or doors for your Ontario home in Oregon, what do you tend to look at first? Maybe you’re looking at the price of those windows. Maybe you’re looking at the type of windows.
The first thing that you should be looking at, hands down, is the company.
When you choose the right company, you’re going to end up with not only the best windows for your home, installed properly with the best guarantees, but you’re also going to end up saving money in the long run.
Don’t most window companies charge more than the Home Depots and Lowes of the world?
Yes, you will notice that if you comparison shop based on the type of windows that you might be interested in for your home, you’re going to save money by going to one of those mega, international home improvement stores. It’s easy to see as you only need to walk into the store, go to the windows or doors section and see what they sell their base windows for, then go to your local window and door company, such as View Point Hardware and notice that there is a big difference between the two.
That means you’ll save money. In the short term. As noted, when you want to save money in the long run, you should focus on choosing the right company for your replacement windows and doors.
Let us explain.
First, when you go to those home improvement super stores, you’re going to have a choice of the lowest quality windows that you’ll find anywhere on the market. Go to just about any small to mid-sized company that focuses almost exclusively on windows and doors and you will never see any of them carry those windows.
For one, they aren’t going to try to compete on price with those big companies. Second, those windows that you’ll find at the major home improvement superstores are absolutely the lowest quality windows that you’ll find anywhere.
And most smaller companies are in business the help their customers choose the best windows for their home, not the cheapest.
Second, when you go to one of those mega stores, you’re just another number. You’re a bottom line booster. You’re the sales person’s commission. They are going to tell you that the windows they offer are the best. They will tell you that you don’t have to worry about the installation. They will tell you that they will look great in your home. They’ll even tell you that you will likely save money on your heating bills during the winter.
Sounds great, right? Not so fast. How much are you going to save on your heating bills? Not a lot. Not with those entry level style windows. Sure, they are replacement windows, and maybe you recognize the name brand of them, but they are the same exact type of windows that home builders will choose to install on brand new home constructions. They choose those not because of quality. They choose those windows because the price. Think about it: if you were looking to maximize your profits, would you bother installing the best windows and doors in a home?
No, you would be looking to install the cheapest ones that you could find and that’s what you’ll find at those major companies.
Making the right decision when it comes to replacement windows and doors for your home begins by choosing the right company.
How to choose the right company for your replacement windows and doors.
You should have a pretty good idea about what you want when it comes to windows and doors in your home. That means you should spend some time looking at your current windows, then searching online and looking at other similar homes to give yourself an idea about what might look ideal in your home.
Once you have some ideas, even if you’re looking to replace the current windows with something similar, but with better features and energy efficiency, that’s fine, because the quality of the windows will save you money over the life of those windows.
Next, look at the different companies that you can choose from with regard to replacement windows and even doors. Avoid the major home improvement superstores. They won’t give you or your home what you deserve.
Focus on local businesses. These are the people who are your neighbors, people who live in your community, who truly understand what it means to live in Ontario and how beautiful the surroundings are and just why your windows are so important.
If you feel more comfortable, then shop around for the best company in the area, or that serves your area. Call a few and talk to them on the phone. They should be responsive, willing to talk to you and answer all of your questions. They shouldn’t pressure you into making a decision right away. Instead, they should be more than willing to give you the time to take the information that they give you, go home, think about it, and talk it over with your family.
That’s because replacing the windows in your home is a major investment. As a major investment, you deserve to understand everything about them.
