At Window Nation, we know windows. Our drive to give our customers the absolute best products and services have put us in the top 10 list of remodelers in the country, and have helped us earn the Angie's List Super Service Award. So, it makes sense that we get a lot of questions about replacement windows. Here are a few of the most common questions.
"When is it time to replace windows?"
If you can feel a draft coming through your windows in the winter, that is a sure sign that you need replacement windows. But, there are a few other ways to tell whether or not it is time for an upgrade.
If your windows need a stick wedge to hold them open, or the latches don't lock anymore.
If the frame is starting to break apart.
If your windows are stuck.
If your windows are painted shut.
If your windows are over 20 years old, you can benefit from modern advancements in window technology.
"How much does it cost to get replacement windows?"
We wish there was an easy answer for this one. But, the truth is that the cost of your replacement windows can vary greatly depending on what you get, and what you need. There are a lot of variables. That is why we offer a free, no-obligation, in-home consultation. Before you commit to buying anything, we'll let you know exactly what your options are, and help you get your new windows into your budget.
"Can I get windows that are bigger than my old ones?"
You sure can. Our Installation Masters™ Certified Installers can advise you on how much larger. There are many factors involved. But, usually, it's no problem. We can even put new windows in a wall that has never had a window. Our team can install everything from a simple venting window, to a large, multipaned bow window.
"What is Low-E?"
This is a metallic coating that is put on a window pane to resist heat transfer. The higher the rating, the better the glass will be at keeping heat from radiating through. But, this is only one of the many ways replacement windows can save you on your energy bills. Our windows come with Krypton or Argon gas to further resist heat transfer, and double or triple pane glass for added protection. And, many of the windows we install come with insulation built right into the frame.
"How long will my new windows last?"
We cannot promise that your windows will last forever, but we make them durable and built to last. In fact, we offer a Lifetime Plus guarantee for the windows we manufacture. That means they are protected for as long as you own your home, and for 15 years for the next owner of your home.
"When do we start?"
Only you can answer that question. Help is just a click away.
