This year ‘cabin fever’ has been lasting a lot longer than usual. What better way to get out and think Spring than by attending a Home and Garden Show? Renewal by Andersen of Northeast Pennsylvania is excited to be partnering with the Building Industry Association of Northeastern Pennsylvania as a sponsor of the 2015 Home Expo to be held at the Mohegan Sun Hotel and Convention Center March 6-8.
Renewal by Andersen also just participated in the Central Susquehanna Builder’s Association Home Show in Bloomsburg and the Eastern Pennsylvania Spring Home Show, both held February 27 – March 1. Prospective customers had the opportunity to stop by the Renewal by Andersen booth to ask questions and view samples.
When asked why Renewal by Andersen participates in so many Home Shows, Event Team Lead Andrea Hall replied, “We want to make the process of buying windows as easy as possible while helping you to learn who we are and what sets us apart from other window companies. Home Shows help us do just that – we bring the showroom to YOU!”
She went on to mention that “one of the most common things people want to do is to USE the windows. And we let them! Renewal by Andersen offers windows that tilt-in for easy-cleaning and have other features that customers want to actually have demonstrated for them. It’s one thing to read about them on our website – but it’s another to actually see them in person and be able to actually try them out.”
So if you are thinking about replacement windows, a Home Show is a great place to start! Here are some helpful tips for how to make the most out of your time at a home show:
- Create a list of features and benefits that are important to you, and jot them on a note in your phone or on paper and keep it in your pocket. Is it important that the windows are easy to clean? Do your windows have to all be a certain color? Do you want a window that will last a long time, or are you looking for a quick short-term solution?
- Don’t set an appointment with every company you speak to. You’ll wear yourself out after the second or third appointment. Pick and choose who has the features you are most interested in; typically after the second or third appointment you know which company you will go with.
- Be prepared to answer some ‘easy’ questions about your windows. How old they are, how many you have in your home and if there are currently any issues you are experiencing. This will enable the product representatives to better assess your current needs and offer a solution.
- Lastly, wear comfortable shoes! You’ll be walking, standing and talking a lot – so make sure you are comfortable.
