Are you the sort of consumer who prioritizes price over all else? No one can blame you for wanting to get a great deal, but what you shouldn’t do is simply look for the cheapest price when buying stuff you need for your home. So if you’re in need of replacement windows, look at the big picture. While you will be able to find replacement windows that are attractively priced, focusing solely on price could rob you of the right windows for your home.
Here’s a look at why looking for the lowest-cost replacement windows might jeopardize your home improvement project and leave you with buyer’s remorse.
You Might Choose Wrong Windows
If you’re solely focused on spending as little as possible, you might end up getting the wrong windows for your home. The cheapest windows will probably come in the form of single pane windows. But you’ll regret that decision as soon as another Canadian winter comes around. The reason is that single pane windows offer little by the way of insulation. In order to get the right windows, you need to consider what your needs are, what your options are, and what your budget is. With the help of staff at a replacement window store, you’ll be able to make an informed decision.
You Might Forego Important Features
Another mistake you may make if price is the top consideration is forgoing some important features and technologies. When you consult with staff at a replacement window shop, you’ll be presented with options such as low-E glass, which is a coating that blocks UV rays and that keeps your home cooler during the summer and warmer during the winter. You might also be tempted to skip something like inert gas fills that can be placed between panes of glass to offer superior insulation. So while you should consider costs, you should also seriously weigh the benefits of some add-on features.
You Might Get an Unappealing Warranty
If the windows you buy are low in quality, you can’t really expect to get a great warranty. The warranty is an important consideration that should not be overlooked. You’ll want a warranty that lasts a long duration and that covers as much as possible. Without one, you’ll be paying out of pocket for repairs. And low-quality windows that come at bargain-basement prices won’t hold up as well as quality replacement windows.
