4 Considerations When Buying New Windows

December 01, 2016

Trading away your old windows for replacement units is always a good idea. It’s a long-term investment, so you have to make sure you’re choosing the right windows for your home. Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee, the premier windows contractor in Milwaukee, discusses four considerations you should make when buying new windows:

Buying New Windows

1. Needs

Aside from disposing your inefficient windows, you have to figure out what specific function your new windows will provide to your home. Do you want to improve ventilation in your kitchen area? Perhaps you want to expand space in your living area?

You can count on us to provide you with windows that will address your needs. We have casement windows that will let you conveniently control the amount of airflow in your home. We also have space-saving gliding windows as well as bow and bay windows that add floor space to your home.

2. Window material

Windows come in various materials, and each has its own unique features and benefits. Wood windows make for a beautiful option, while fiberglass and vinyl materials don’t require much upkeep. Our windows in Milwaukee, WI, however, come with Fibrex® frame composite. It offers the natural beauty but twice the strength of wood and low-maintenance qualities of vinyl. This allows us to create thin frames for more glass surface area, resulting in bigger views of the outdoors and more daylight. Furthermore, they will not to fade, chip, crack, and warp, ensuring long-term beauty and performance.

3. Energy efficiency

Always look for windows that have the ENERGY STAR® label. This will tell you if your prospective window comes with energy-efficient qualities. We take pride that our windows have this label. They feature High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass that will lessen the amount of heat buildup in your home.

With this, you don’t have to overwork your HVAC units, which can drive up your energy bills. Aside from this, they can block UV rays that can damage your furniture while allowing more natural light in your home. You can also expect this component in our patio doors in Wisconsin.

4. Warranties

These will protect you from defective products and poor workmanship. You can have the peace of mind knowing that our windows come with exclusive warranties. If our window underperforms during the coverage period, expect us to fix it for you at no additional cost.

Lastly, make sure to consider the window company you’re getting your windows from. After all, your window’s overall quality and performance is reliant on the ones who installs it. Working with Renewal by Andersen of Milwaukee will ensure you a swift, airtight, and flawless job. You can expect our windows to deliver superior performance for years to come.

Hear From Our Customers

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.
