What does a ballpark have to do with your windows? You’re about to find out and it’s probably not exactly what you had in mind! Elephant in the room: we are not selling Dunkin’ Donuts Park, but one of the first questions most potential customers ask when shopping for replacement residential windows is what does the ballpark cost? Here at Window Nation, we understand that when it comes to the quality of the products you put in your home, Nutmeggers want the very best. Knowing that we can provide that at a price that won’t break the bank is important to us. That being said, we will do our very best to give you a basic pricing outline. But the answer to the “ballpark” question is somewhat difficult to explain. Think about the last big purchase you made, a potential lifetime investment. For example your Hartford home.
Do Your ResearchUsually, the first step is researching the features and style you want and compiling a list. Some items on the list may be negotiable such as room for a garden in the back yard. Others might be “must-haves”, such as the number of bedrooms or a two-car garage. With so many different styles and options to choose from, prices often vary. Replacement windows and doors are no exception.
Choose The Right Windows For Your HomeBut the truth is, whether we’re talking about your home or your windows these are tough choices you’re going to have to live with. Choices like living in Hartford and supporting the Yankees over the Sox. We’ll forgive you, but you’re on thin ice. So wouldn’t you prefer to do it right the first time AND get all the qualities you’re looking for? At Window Nation, we take pride in our ability to provide every homeowner what we like to call a “good”, “better”, “best” in terms of budget. We offer a wide variety of options to choose from, over 1500. This allows us to provide windows to meet your needs and your budget without sacrificing quality because every Window Nation window is custom-made just for your Hartford home. So whether you’re looking for the best money can buy or something a little simpler, we’ve got you covered. You may be thinking “they’re just windows, what’s the big deal?” (If you are, careful, your inner T-Town is showing). But when it comes to the windows in your home, they’re just as unique as you are. Understanding that you’ll be looking out of your windows and unlocking your door quite regularly is important. And not just any old window or door will do. The one you choose will be essential to your overall satisfaction with our products. We want to ensure maximum satisfaction with minimal maintenance over the lifetime of the product. Windows are typically a one-time investment and there are many factors to take into account when researching and purchasing your windows such as glass options, safety features, durability against reckless Hartford drivers on their phones, and operational mechanisms. Unfortunately, many first-time shoppers focus solely on the initial cost of their home remodeling project and fail to realize the long-term consequences of finding the “cheapest” estimate.
Cost vs. ValueWhen buying new windows it’s important to remember the difference between value and cost. For example, UConn is arguably the better value, where UConn Stamford has a much more realistic cost. In many cases, a lower price tag compromises things like the warranty, quality, aesthetic appeal, and lower maintenance. When it comes to pricing a window here are a few items that it’s almost impossible to provide a substantiated estimate without:
- Window Style
- Window Interior/Exterior Color
- Size of the Window
- Material of the Frame
- Customizations & Add-Ons
- Labor Required
- Existing Window Conditions
