A window replacement project isn’t something that every homeowner is ready tackle. There are many factors that have to be considered, such as finding a contractor, choosing the brand and materials you want for your window, and most importantly, estimating the cost. Replacing your windows is a significant investment, after all.
In this post, A&A Services Home Improvement discusses four different methods you can use to get the best deal on your replacement windows.
Negotiations– Replacement window companies are usually fairly willing to attempt price negotiations with you. This is because they’re competing with one another for your money, which puts you in a good position to negotiate for lower prices. With this in mind, don’t be afraid to haggle for a price that both you and your local window company can agree on.
Contractors – If you want to get a good deal on your window replacement, research your contractor thoroughly. There are some window contractors out there who have a special relationship with the manufacturers, which enables them to negotiate for the best window prices on your behalf. In addition, hiring an experienced contractor can also save you a lot of money in the long run, as they’re less likely to make installation mistakes.
Less Costly Materials – While solid wood windows can be a good choice for your home, for the best deal you should choose windows with fiberglass or solid vinyl frames. Both are a less costly alternative to wood, and you often won’t even be able to tell the difference since most of these window types can be made to mimic the texture of actual wood.
Foregoing Extra Features – When talking to a replacement window company, chances are they’ll offer extra add-ons and features for your window like laminate exterior glass, company-supplied hardware and integrated grilles. As these aren’t mandatory, you most likely don’t need them. If this is the case, be sure to avoid adding on extra features to help keep down costs.
