It’s finally time to purchase new windows for your Anaheim home and you’re ready to give your exterior a fresh new look! Before you head straight to the showroom floor, it’s important to remember that the market is currently filled with options. The more you know ahead of time, the better the final result will be. At Pacific Shores Windows & Doors it’s important to us that you love your new windows for years to come, so we’ve created a short list of questions to ask yourself before shopping to help ensure just that.

What are my short term AND long term budgets?

Many homeowners hit the showroom floor with a good idea of what their short term budget is, or the amount of money they are willing to spend on the initial cost of their windows. However, it’s important to think about the long term costs of your windows as well. Windows will vary in the amount of upkeep, maintenance, and repairs they’ll need, so it’s wise to consider these costs ahead of time. You’ll also want to think about the average lifespan of each window material and how long until you’ll be expected to buy their replacements.

How much time am I willing to invest?

Time is money and deserves equal consideration, especially if you plan on handling your upkeep and maintenance on your own. Remember, some window materials like wood will require annual peeling, sanding, painting and staining while other window materials like vinyl only need to occasionally be cleaned with soap and water. If you’re fine with putting in extra work for some sharp looking windows then that’s great, but if not it’s best to know this ahead of time so you’re not saddled with unwanted chores. 

Do I plan on selling my home sometime in the near future?

Buying windows is a great way to reflect your unique style and taste. However, if you plan on selling your home in the near future, you’ll want to keep that goal in mind while window shopping. Recent real estate reports have shown that some homes tend to sell for more than others simply due to the type of windows they have installed. To make sure your new windows are a solid investment we suggest visiting some local open houses or speaking with a real estate agent in your area to determine what’s considered standard for your market.
