Are you thinking about having your old windows replaced? If you answered yes, then you’ve probably heard a few stories and misconceptions about getting replacement windows. Here are some of the biggest myths related to replacement windows that you may have already heard… and why they’re nothing more than misconceptions.
Myth: Replacement Windows Are One and the Same
Contrary to popular belief, window replacement is far from a simple cookie-cutter process. Different homes have different window replacement needs. What works with one house will not yield the same results if put on a different home. This is why you should make sure the people installing your windows will take a look at your house prior to installation so that they can help you determine what will work best for your home.
Myth: Replacement Windows Are Too Expensive
While the upfront cost of getting new windows may seem too much for most homeowners, looking past these fees will show you that your new windows can actually save you a lot of money in the long run. For example, Andersen® windows have energy-efficient features that can help you cut down on your monthly electric bill, saving you hundreds and even thousands of dollars in energy costs.
Myth: Replacement Windows Don’t Last Long Compared to Fresh Installations
If installed according to manufacturer specifications, replacement windows will last for a very long time, perhaps even longer than the original windows that you had replaced. This is especially true for window replacements made of extra durable materials, such as our very own Fibrex® frames.
There’s no need to feel discouraged by misconceptions about getting new windows. Just remember that the sooner you replace your windows, the more value you can get out of them.
