The Biggest Misconceptions About Replacement Windows

October 12, 2017

winter window installationWhen it comes to replacement windows, there’s a good deal of confusion and misinformation among consumers. Some homeowners believe that the type of material used to construct the window doesn’t make much of a difference, while others may feel that anyone with DIY experience can install a window with the same results as the professionals. Renewal by Andersen of Northeast PA is here to dispel these misconceptions, and to help you understand why we’re so vested in what we do.

Avoiding the Blame Game

One of the most frustrating aspects of the installation and repair of exterior home elements is the blame game that happens if something goes wrong. You go to the installer to get the problem fixed, only to have them refer you to the manufacturer, and vice versa. At Renewal by Andersen, this isn’t an issue for one simple reason: we’re the manufacturer and the installer. We have a vested interest in making sure that our windows are done right the first time, every time. By manufacturing our own windows, we are able to use precise measurements to custom-build each window, ensuring a perfect fit in every window opening. In the same vein, because the installers are our certified installers, we’re able to warrant the installation as well as the windows themselves.

Certified Master InstallerSuperior Materials Matter

Understandably, saving money is a priority for most families, but too often people go for the cheapest option available when purchasing replacement windows – and end up spending more money in the long run. Aluminum windows, for example, are high conductors of heat, making it harder to keep your home cool in the summer. Vinyl windows tend to be weak and break down faster in the elements, and therefore have to be replaced more often. Renewal by Andersen® windows, on the other hand, are made of high-quality materials that are thicker, stronger and more durable than any others on the market. They may be more expensive upfront than some of our competitors’ options, but the tough Fibrex® frames will last for years with very little maintenance, while High Performance™ Low-E4® glass options will help increase the energy efficiency of your home.

The Right Training is Key

Technically, anybody can install a new window. All it takes are the right tools and a YouTube video. However, to install a window correctly, it’s important to have the right training. Windows are big, heavy and bulky. One small mistake can break the glass, potentially injuring yourself as well as those around you. Additionally, professional installers like the certified installers from Renewal by Andersen have been putting in windows for years. They know the right procedures to follow to ensure that the windows are as energy-efficient as possible, with no possibility of air leaking in or out and wreaking havoc on your energy bills. They will also leave your home clean after installation, and can complete installations even in the winter.

At Renewal by Andersen of Northeast PA, our certified installation teams strive to provide the best service possible by keeping up with new installation practices and techniques. If you want a company that cares about your home as much as you do, look no further! Give us a call today (610) 849-2800 to schedule your FREE in-home consultation.
