Whether you are replacing your windows out of necessity, or simply to update the look of your Anaheim home, shopping for replacement windows can be an exciting process. While this opportunity allows you to experiment with new looks or finally pick up those dream windows, it’s important that you keep the right factors in mind throughout the process to avoid common mistakes. At Pacific Shores Windows & Doors, we want to set you up for success so we have provided a short list of mistakes frequently made my homeowners while shopping for replacement windows.

#1 Don’t Assume a High Price Tag Means Quality

When it comes to windows, there are a number of factors that will determine a windows’ final cost. They include material, import costs, and how ‘in demand’ a specific style or model is. Still, a high price tag isn’t always a sign that a window is up to par. Some windows have higher price tags simply because they are aesthetically beautiful or aren’t as easily available as other window models. There are many window models and materials, like vinyl windows, that come with a highly reasonable price tag and a long list of benefits.

#2 Don’t Just Consider Your Short Term Budget

It’s always wise to consider how much you want to spend on your windows prior to shopping for a new frame. However, it’s just as important to consider your long-term budget as it is to consider your short-term budget. Your short-term budget is the amount of money you plan on paying up front, or the original investment in buying the actual windows. Your long term budget is the amount of money you are planning on spending on upkeep, repairs, maintenance and eventually the windows replacement. By considering these long-term costs, it will be easier to determine the type of windows you are looking for by checking how they will perform over time.

#3 Don’t Just Jump On a Trend, Especially if You Plan on Selling

Industry trends come and go, but if you plan on selling your home in the near future, we recommend speaking with a real estate agent or visiting homes for sale in your area to find the type of windows that are considered standard in your market. Not only will this improve your odds of increasing your resale value, but it will also save you from having to replace your windows yet again right before putting your home up for sale in the future.
