1. Assuming that quality is out of your price range
First and foremost, you need new windows that are of good quality. If you choose cheap materials then you can count on them looking cheap. If you choose windows that aren’t of high quality, then you’re not just risking windows that don’t look great, you’re likely to end up with poor energy efficiency. You can even be facing safety issues if your windows aren’t installed correctly and are easy to break into.
2. Assuming that spending as much as possible results in the highest quality product
We don’t want to see our clients buy the cheapest possible windows just to save a little today and pay more tomorrow. That said, we also don’t want them to assume that if they buy the most expensive options on the market, that they’re going to get the best quality. The reality is that you want to find the right value by looking for the best price on the best quality. Charles Window can help you better understand your options and each of their benefits.
3. Trying to self-install windows
This may seem tempting as it will seem to save you money. The truth is that it’s going to cost you in the long run. Not only does the average homeowner not have the requisite experience and knowledge to properly install windows, but they don’t have the right tools and equipment. It doesn’t make sense to buy what you need for a one-time project, which is part of the reasons it’s cheaper to hire a window installation company. Remember as well that some manufacturer’s warranties only cover windows installed by professionals.
