Why Great Windows Are Worth the Cost

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

Knowing which replacement window to buy can be difficult. There are many types and styles to choose from, and every seller seems to offer a deal. Sometimes homeowners come up against less-than-reliable customer sales reps that promise them a great price for what turns out to be a not-so-great product. Read on for ways to choose wisely.

Too Good to Be True

We’ve all heard “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is,” and the world of replacement windows is no different. As in any industry, you’ll find some window companies who are out to make a quick sale, and the deals they offer usually bear closer scrutiny. There are a number of deceptive sales tactics used by unscrupulous window companies that you need to be aware of before you shop. Listed below are some of the most common tactics you may encounter:

  • Inflated retail prices that make customers think they are getting an amazing sale price
  • High-pressure sales tactics to lure customers in and then an up-sell to a different, more expensive window.
  • Quoting prices for a certain window but delivering a lower quality version
  • Over-estimated energy efficiency and savings
  • Not making buyers aware of the window’s lifespan

You Get What You Pay For

A window that will last as long as your home will not be found on sale at a discount window dealer. Materials and craftsmanship that are top-of-the-line will, by necessity, cost more than a mass-produced window with lower-grade materials that is built for a budget. Fiberglass windows, such as the Infinity from Marvin fiberglass windows, are constructed with a patented material that resists the damaging effects of time and weather. It’s a buying decision that more than pays for itself because the product never needs replacing.

The Value of Great Windows

When calculating the window cost for your home, keep these points in mind about Infinity from Marvin fiberglass windows

  • Energy efficient windows help reduce monthly utility costs
  • Fiberglass windows do not require painting
  • Patented Ultrex fiberglass windows do not rust, chip, rot, warp or peel
  • Eligible for federal tax credits
  • Enhanced curb appeal
  • Weathertight
  • Custom-built

Armed with these tips, you can better shop for replacement windows for your home. For a free estimate, contact North Georgia Replacement Windows today.

 

 

4 Things to Know When Replacing Your Windows

Tuesday, December 15th, 2015

living-room-389264_640

Window replacement is something that homeowner’s typically don’t consider.  Unlike a car or even a home itself, windows are not something that is top of mind for most people when it comes to something to upgrade.  As a result, when the time does come to replace windows, the process and choices aren’t as clear as it might be for major purchases.

NG Windows has a process in place to make you feel as comfortable as possible through the process.  But, the more you know before even make your initial call about replacing your windows the easier it will be to ultimately make a decision.  Following are 4 things to keep in mind as you begin the window replacement process.

Know the Process

We have a five-step process in place that we use and it works.

  1. You make the call
  2. We schedule a meeting
  3. You receive a proposal that encompasses everything
  4. Together, we agree to the details, based on your needs and desires
  5. We complete the project

How much should I expect to pay?

There are a lot of factors when it comes to price.  We recommend one of four different materials, vinyl, wood, milled PVC or fiberglass.  The price will depend on which one you choose, how many windows need to be replaced and how customized they need to be.  It’s important to keep in mind that replacing your windows isn’t like replacing a leaky faucet.  This is a decision that will enhance your home in a variety of ways.  Cost is certainly a factor, but shouldn’t be a deciding factor.

What can I expect during the actual replacement?

NG Windows literally rolls out the red carpet for you.  Any project on your home is a hassle.  It’s a disruption that can be a legitimate reason not to move forward with a project.  We have a “white glove” approach to make your life as easy as possible while we replace your windows.  All you have to do is stay out of the way, we’ll do the rest.  When the project is complete, you can expect your house to be in the same condition that you entrusted to us when we began.

Should I get multiple quotes?

We know that you’ll get the best quality and best service from us, but, you need to know that too.  We don’t take window replacement lightly and neither should you.  Replacing your windows is a major event, by all means, do your research.

 

By taking the time to prepare yourself before you begin the process, the stress of the unknown will be alleviated.  You’ll be able to make an informed decision on a product that will help to define your home.  To speak to an expert with absolutely no pressure, to answer any questions you might have, please contact us at your convenience.

Remember This When Replacing Your Home Windows

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Did you know that nearly 30 to 40 percent of the energy in your home is lost through your windows and doors if they are not up to par with modern efficiency standards? Installing a new set of ENERGY STAR windows can save you upwards of $500 a year on heating and cooling costs by upgrading from single-panes alone. When considering that most windows can last up to 30 years or more, this is one long-term investment every homeowner should make.

While you can certainly replace one window at a time, the best savings come from large-scale projects. Most window contractors will advise you to do this if your budget allows, but at the end of the day, the savings will start to add up right away.

Of course, to make the most of your investment, there a few things to take under careful consideration. Hiring a reputable and licensed contractor such as North Georgia Replacement Windows is important, especially for people who lack the requisite experience needed to perform this job.

Improve the Outside of Your Home with Bow Windows

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Bow windows are very similar to bay windows – to such an extent that they are generally considered to be a more specific type of bay window. They naturally extend outward from the walls of your home and provide architectural interest in the same way that a bay window installation can.

Construction

Bow windows are generally made by gently arcing anywhere between three to five windows together. These windows can function as a solid unit or as individually operable units depending on how the bow window is constructed and which window styles are used to create the overall structure.

Bow_window

Bow windows are perfect for larger openings because they can provide a full viewing range and bring in a significant amount of light while still offering an overall functionality to your home’s interior and a revitalized sense of style to your home’s exterior.

Roof Attachment

Our replacement window installation teams are able to attach your bow windows to your home either by tying them in to the existing roof or by adding on a customized hip roof. Depending on the grade of the curve you desire in your window, either of these can be an excellent architectural decision. We will be certain to let you know if the size of your window will limit your roof attachment options.

Materials

Each of our bow windows for your home comes in a variety of materials, finishes and casings. Choose between custom-stained, furniture-grade veneers, aluminum or fiberglass components, then choose your finish. We currently offer bow windows in white or woodgrain interior finishes, and any color on the exterior.

If you are ready to bring some more visual interest to the exterior of your home, it may be time to consider adding a bow window. Call one of our associates today to discuss your options and begin the process of installing your replacement windows.
