“Everyone was courteous and nice and the service was great”

Although the Thomas family has only lived in their home for 3 months, they knew window replacements were on the horizon. The Thomas family spotted a Window Nation ad in the newspaper and decided to replace the old, worn out windows in their suburban single family home with state-of-the-art Grandview windows. Although they did scope out the competition, the Thomas family ultimately decided to give their business to Window Nation since we offered them the best price, along with the promise of unmatched customer service.

Besides the savings on their energy bill from installing new, energy efficient windows, the Thomas family said that the new windows improved the look of the house. See for yourself in the before and after photos below!

With the New Year, many people consider making changes in their lives and homes. If you’ve been thinking about making changes to your home, the pros at Window Nation have lots of ideas for you! To improve the overall look of your home, we would like to suggest new vinyl siding. Anyone who has ever gone from traditional wood siding to beautiful new vinyl siding understands the benefits of this home improvement; here are just a few of the reasons we think this is the change you should make for 2014!

Vinyl siding is tough stuff! It withstands high winds, weather extremes and anything else Mother Nature can throw at it! With vinyl siding from the Exterior Portfolio by Crane, you can trust that it is designed to stand up to many years of harsh weather conditions.

Vinyl siding delivers style and beauty, improving the overall look of your home. Your new vinyl siding can be customized to your home and to fit your style; along with vinyl siding trim and other vinyl siding accessories, your home’s curb appeal will skyrocket!

Vinyl siding requires a minimal amount of maintenance to keep it looking great. Traditional wood siding requires annual scraping, sanding and repainting, where vinyl siding only requires a little soapy water and a garden hose! You’ll save time and money with vinyl siding from Window Nation.

Vinyl siding is easily installed and when it is done by the professionals at Window Nation, you know it will be done correctly. Our vinyl siding panels are made in standard shapes and sizes, which means that there is very little room for error during installation. Vinyl siding is not secured to your home the way that traditional wood siding is; vinyl panels are attached by nails that are hammered through holes at the top of each panel. This allows for the panels to expand or contract, depending on temperature fluctuations outdoors. This type of installation also allows for panels to be easily replaced should they become damaged or go missing in a storm.

Window Nation prices are some of the most competitive in the market and we would be happy to discuss your vinyl siding budget. Contact us today to help improve your home in 2014 with exceptional vinyl siding from Window Nation.

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen improvements in the cost-value ratio for home improvement projects. This ratio compares the cost of home improvement projects to the value they add to your home. The higher the ratio, the more money you will recoup in the selling price of the home. This year, the overall cost-value ratio has reached 60.6%, which is a pretty big improvement from the past few years, during which the overall ratio was only 57.7%. We’re excited to discuss this, because it quantifies the value of home improvement projects and replacement projects (such as replacement windows and replacement doors) and shows homeowners that updating their homes will pay off in the end.

A growing trend that’s remained constant throughout the years is the higher value of exterior replacement projects compared to more discretionary projects. Homeowners can see that the better value is in sustainable improvements that will have long-term benefits, like energy efficiency, for example. One thing that’s for sure, energy efficient replacement windows are a great way to save money long-term in utility bills and also reduce the amount of resources used, such as fuel.

At Window Nation, our replacement windows are all designed to create a more comfortable home that remains warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer… all for less money. Our windows are designed with the highest quality materials and technology to keep the home sealed off from the outside elements. You will experience a more even temperature throughout the home and no longer will your heating and cooling dollars literally slip out the window.

Another component of the 2013 Cost vs. Value Report that we would like to point out is that home replacement projects yield a higher cost-value ratio than home remodeling projects. And as we enter the spring season and home improvement projects really get under way, now’s a great time to consider which replacement projects will be the best value for your home and budget.

If you would like to learn more about replacement windows in Baltimore, Maryland; the D.C. Metro; Lorton, Virginia; Charlotte; Cleveland, and throughout our entire service area, please contact Window Nation today. And remember, in addition to a higher cost-value ratio, energy tax credits are back!

It’s here! Tax season that is, and what better time to remind you that some of the home improvement projects you’ve been contemplating or completed last year now qualify for tax credits for 2012 and 2013. If you’ve been thinking about buying energy efficient replacement windows or doors but have been holding off, the window replacement professionals here at Window Nation have put together some information on the 2012 – 2013 tax credits.
