Window Replacement Guide
For Lakewood Homeowners
The Best Windows Have Triple-Pane Glass
& A Reinforced Frame
Comparing different replacement windows can at first seem overwhelming.
There are a lot of replacement window companies serving Lakewood, and at first it can seem like there are hundreds of different options to choose from. But the truth is most windows being offered are very average and pretty much the same.
While different Lakewood window contractors will emphasize different features of their windows, the fact of the matter is most fall into a fairly narrow range of quality. You can find superficial differences, but the performance of these windows is nothing special.
The average window on offer has:
- A single or double-pane window that is somewhat energy efficient.
- A vinyl frame that is either hollow or has some foam filling.
- No special design features and a standard look.
- Have some version of a “Lifetime” warranty, but with lots of fine print that makes the actual warranty coverage weak.
Don’t settle for these average windows. If you pick the right window the first time, you’re only going to do this once and then live with the results for decades. When you install lesser windows, that means less comfort in your home. It means higher energy bills, month after month for decades. And it means your home will be less attractive than it could have been.
You can get the very best replacement windows installed on your Lakewood home if you know what to look for. Here’s what the best windows have:
Triple-pane glass. Triple pane glass has a huge positive impact on the performance of your window. The majority of companies will be pushing a double-pane window, but triple-pane will keep you much more comfortable and save you more on energy. That extra pane of glass makes all the difference.
Strong frame. The next key component of your window is the frame. The truth is that many windows being offered are hollow vinyl frames, or foam-filled frames with very limited reinforcement. What you want is a frame this is reinforced all over with High Density Resin. This makes the window frame super strong and keeps the window performing well decade after decade.
Reliable Warranty. A lot of warranties sound good, but when you read the fine print and exclusions, you often find that the coverage is significantly less than you thought. Always understand the details of your window warranty and don’t settle for a warranty that is vague or has a bunch of loopholes.
