The market is currently flooded with options in every area from styles to materials, ensuring there’s the perfect window for every style of home. Unfortunately, so many options can also make the window market feel overwhelming and difficult to navigate. After all, there are a number of decisions to make while buying your new windows, and the more informed you are, the better the quality of the windows you’ll take home. If it’s your first time shopping for windows and you feel like you just don’t know where to start, don’t worry, we’ve put together a list of some tips experts wish you knew while shopping for your windows.
Don’t Read Into the Price Tag
One mistake that homeowners often make while shopping for their windows is believing that windows with a higher price are higher quality. Now, if you were shopping for a luxury item like a car or a piece of jewelry this may be the case, but it’s not necessarily so when it comes to windows. A window can hold a high price tag for a number of reasons that don’t reflect the actual performance. For example, a window may be more on the expensive side due to its aesthetic appeal or because it falls in with a current industry trend. That doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of affordable window options, like vinyl windows, that will provide major quality at a more economical price.
Always Check the Label
When you want to make sure you’re buying the best food for your family, you check the label. Well, your windows work the same way. The label is where you will find a great deal of important information like whether or not a window is ENERGY STAR preferred, or what the window’s U-factor is. If you’re not familiar with a U-factor, it’s similar to the “miles per gallon” rating you find on your car and is designed to tell homeowners just how well a window can insulate a home. Remember, the lower the number on the U-factor, the better its insulating capabilities.
