You deserve to know the truth about what you are buying.
Did you know that most window dealers receive their products from the same manufacturing companies, yet the cost can vary with hundreds of dollars of difference between dealer prices for the exact same window?
You can count on Window Source to be 100% up front and honest about what you receive when you purchase a window from us.
When you use Window Source to provide windows for your home, you are trusting us with a lot and we are up to the challenge! We do not always refer you to the most expensive options. Instead, we look at all of the options and pick the most cost-effective route for you to reach your goals, not ours.
In this blog post we are going to give you a little insider advice to help you get the most window for your dollar.
1. Choose style over material
While wood might be the priciest and most elaborate option, vinyl frames have a classy, beautiful look and will save you money, big time! Plus, this will save you excess maintenance costs in the future; vinyl will never rot and is easy to clean. On average, vinyl window frames tend to last 3X longer than wood! Now that’s a number we like to see!
2. Make sure you need the upgrades
Most window dealers will try to sell you on all of the most expensive upgrades for energy savings. We suggest that you consider your climate and whether or not the windows face the sun before selecting a specific type of energy efficient window. While Low-E coating does make a huge difference for your energy bill, there are several types and you want to make sure you choose the one that will truly make a difference for you and your home.
3. Stay practical
It is so tempting to fall for the cheapest window – a standard glass window that does not open – but don’t rush into that decision! Spend your money where it makes sense. If you would like to have windows that open, invest in that. Keep in mind that you may want to sell your house someday and ease of use and quality of materials is a major selling point for the future.
4. Buy from a dealer with credibility
We will not hesitate to tell you that the dealer makes all the difference. If you buy your windows from someone who is going to try to get the biggest sale, you will spend more money… period. Make sure you choose a window dealer who is interested in doing the best job possible and has your best interests in mind. Window Source is committed to providing you with the best options for the best price… always.
We hope this advice is helpful to you as you navigate the horizon of window shopping! Don’t rush into any decisions and be sure to prioritize the aspects of your windows that are most important to you. If you take your time and do the research, you’re sure to save money in the end.
