What does a ball park have to do with your windows? You’re about to find out and it’s probably not exactly what you had in mind!
One of the first questions most potential customers ask when shopping for replacement windows is: What is the ballpark cost?
Here at Window Nation, we understand that when it comes to the quality of the products you put in your home, you 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 home. Usually 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, “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. But the truth is, whether we’re talking about your home or your windows these are choices you’re going to have to live with, 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 15 name brands including many you may have heard of before like Pella. With the extensive number of brands we offer come 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 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?”
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 and we want to ensure maximum satisfaction with minimum 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 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. When buying new windows it is important to remember the difference between value and 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, approx. size of window, and material of frame, options, labor required and existing window conditions.
We provide in-home estimates at no cost to each and every customer for exactly this reason. Just like a mechanic cannot confidently diagnose a car problem without first looking at the car, as window experts we typically like to come out to home, sit down with our customers and take a look at the project before determining the cost. Of course there is no obligation to buy at the time of the appointment and once the Window Nation design specialist gives you an estimate in writing, it’s good for 60 days.
As you can see, we like to be extremely thorough and it certainly reflects in the quality of work we produce. We want to be sure that our customers are educated on the relevance of each detail leading to the overall success of their project.
We hope this article has helped you to understand what we are all about, as well as grasp the reason behind our replacement window pricing. Thank you for taking the time to read our blog and we look forward to working with you in the future!
