Who has the best price?

The vinyl replacement window industry is one of those industries that confuses and frustrates people. Like getting your car fixed, buying a home, getting a computer fixed, many people end up paying too much because they don’t know what questions to ask.

I have seen so many ads recently promising 30% off, 50% off, free windows, free installation etc. How do you know what the best value is. Book mark this page.

1.) Most double hung windows have 2 panes of glass, argon and low E.
Double hung means that both the upper and lower sash move
These windows can tilt in for easy cleaning
These windows have a U-factor rating of .29-.31. This number measures
efficiency and energy loss.
Argon is a gas put between the panes for insulation
Low E keeps the suns heat out in the summer while allowing it in, in the winter

These are the main things to look for. If the window doesn’t have all of these, you may want to try another company.

2.) Most companies make 100%+ profit on the windows they sell you. This includes all the famous names you know about. We work hard and keep our markup low. This way we get referrals and make a profit without heavy advertising.

3.) Don’t get lost. Don’t just be a number. We work hard to make sure you are 100% happy with the service and installation of our windows, siding, and doors. We will make it right if there is a problem.

Home Improvement Season in Full Swing

Spring is here and people are exciting about working on their homes. New vinyl replacement windows, siding, roofing, doors etc. we are all excited to get out of the house and do something to beautify or neighborhood.

Business has definitely been brisk as the lead laws start to take effect. People are in a big hurry to install their upgrades before fees go up in July due to the new precautions that must be taken and the fees involved.

Word of advise, don’t wait more and a week or two from now to place your orders.
