If you’re considering a window replacement project, you have many options. Do you replace the windows yourself or use a contractor? Do you use pre-made windows from a box store or do you custom make your windows using a window replacement company? It’s a difficult decision, and each option has its benefits. Pre-made windows are often cheaper and easier to find, while custom-made replacement windows are built to fit your home’s needs. However, when you choose pre-made windows, you might be sacrificing quality and energy efficiency for a lower price.

At Window Nation, all our replacement windows are custom-made to fit your home’s needs. When you schedule a consultation with our team, an exterior design consultant will come to your home to better understand your needs. They will discuss all your options and provide recommendations about which windows are best for your home. Your windows will then be custom-made to meet your needs. Coupled with our expert installation, your windows will be the perfect fit for your home.

Compliment Your Home

Custom-made windows are made specifically for your home. You can build them to compliment your décor or add character to your space. Replacement windows from Window Nation are available in hundreds of styles and colors, so you can find the perfect combination for your home. Your windows can also be customized with add-ons like grids and decorative glass patterns for a unique touch. The options are endless! You can even mix and match your windows to fit different rooms – you might want white vinyl double hung windows for your bedrooms, but you might want a wood bay window for your living room. Regardless of the style you choose, custom-made windows will give your home a much-needed makeover you’ll enjoy for years to come.

Built for Your Climate

Improved energy efficiency is one of the biggest benefits of custom replacement windows. All Window Nation windows are built with premium energy efficiency features to keep your home comfortable no matter the season. We offer double pane and triple pane windows, so you can choose between windows with the best value or the best energy efficiency. If you live in a climate with harsher weather, like Boston or Kansas City, you might consider triple pane windows for an added energy efficiency boost. You’ll also enjoy fewer air leaks because each window is measured to fit each opening, creating an airtight seal. No matter the climate you live in, you’ll enjoy lower energy bills for years to come.

Easy Installation

An airtight seal isn’t the only benefit of custom replacement windows. When you choose custom replacement windows, installation is often quicker and more efficient than DIY window installation. Before your windows are ordered, our team will come to your house and measure each opening down to the millimeter, guaranteeing a perfect fit. On your installation day, your installers will simply remove your old window from the frame and pop the new window in. As a result, most installations are finished in just a day or two. Your home will feel more comfortable in no time!

Older windows can mean a cold, drafty home during the winter months. Many homeowners don’t notice just how bad their windows are until cold weather arrives. Your windows could be letting the warm, comfortable air inside escape, causing strain on your HVAC system – which could result in higher energy bills. Don’t wait until the temperatures warm up to replace your windows – our team of window replacement experts can replace windows in all types of weather conditions, including harsh winter weather. If you’re looking to install replacement windows this winter, learn more about our winter window installation process straight from the experts.

Winter Window Installation Process

Some homeowners might be concerned about the comfort of their home during their window installation. However, our windows are custom-built to fit each opening, allowing for an efficient installation. Our windows are measured down to the millimeter to guarantee a perfect fit. Your new windows simply slide into the opening, creating an airtight seal to keep the cold air outside where it belongs. We also use caulk to insulate your windows for added protection from the cold.

Our team of installers will also take extra precautions to keep your home comfortable. We replace just one window at a time in order to reduce heat loss, so there will only be a small “window” of time when there is an open space in your house. We will also close off the door to the room we’re working in to keep your home as comfortable as possible. If the room can’t be shut off, we will use tarp or protective barriers to keep the cold from spreading throughout your home. Our team will also take steps to keep your home clean, laying down drop cloths to prevent snow, dirt, and mud from tracking through your home.

It can seem like the great unknown – the huge abyss! For most of us trying to decide the what, when, where, and how of replacement windows is such an intimidating task that it often will sit on our to-do lists without a check mark for years. It’s not that we don’t think it is important to accomplish or that it doesn’t really need to be done, but rather it is the fear of the unknown that keeps us from completing this job. After all, how much practical experience do we really have with replacing windows? It’s not exactly like it is a job that we do often, and for many of us, it is a job that we have never done before. We don’t have any basis in our experiences that would make us feel that we can tackle this huge undertaking successfully; so we put it off.

Well, that procrastination, no matter how understandable, is still costing you money; and the need for new windows is not going to just go away on its own. So let’s take a look at the main mysteries in the window replacement process and try to gap that huge abyss of the great unknown.

First of all, you need to know what the overall process is. Here at Window Nation, your experience will begin with a phone call to set up a free no-obligation in home inspection or a visit to one of our showrooms. Once your needs are clearly determined, you will receive a written proposal which will list all of the time frames, costs, materials, etc. Also, financing options will be discussed and finalized if necessary. Next, one of our specialists will discuss the details of your specific project with you, and we will order your windows and will set your install date.

Secondly, you need to know what to expect during the actual installation of your new replacement windows. Your installation team will arrive at the appointed time led by a factory trained and certified Master Installer. He will perform a walk-through with you to ensure that there are no misunderstandings or unanswered questions and to survey the work site again. Next, your existing window openings will be re-measured to ensure accuracy. Drop cloths will be laid to protect your floor and other items from dust and damage. We are also equipped and trained to follow EPA lead containment practices if necessary. Once this is complete, we will remove your old windows making sure not to disturb any interior trim or framework. The new custom built windows will be set into place, insulated, sealed, capped, and the exterior trim will be reinstalled. Finally, your team leader will review the job with you, show you how to operate your new windows, and answer any questions you may have. The very last thing is to make sure all areas are as clean as when we arrived. It is that simple.

Lastly, you may want to know if you should shop around. This last item is really a personal decision, but here at Window Nation, we are so sure of the superiority of our products and the expertise of our team that we are not afraid for you to compare ‘apples to apples’ so to speak. Look and see what is out there. In the end, we are certain that you will agree that Window Nation is the best choice.

Now that we have cleared the abyss and taken the fear out of the process of replacement windows, we encourage you to finally check ‘replacing windows’ off your to-do list; and just imagine the peace you can experience by filling your memory bank with the experience of a job well done and removing the fear of the unknown that you once had. When you think “Replacement Windows,” think “Window Nation!”
