While shopping for replacement windows for your Orange County home, it’s important to keep specific factors in mind to ensure you are fully satisfied with your purchase. Whether you are replacing your windows due to damage or simply to update the style of your home, chances are there are some elements of your original windows that you could do without. Here we will provide you with some helpful questions to ask yourself during the buying process to ensure your new windows are an improvement from the originals.

  1. What did I dislike about my original windows?

The best way to ensure your replacement windows are an improvement from the original is to steer away from any of the issues you experienced in the past. For example, if your original windows required annual peeling, sanding, staining and painting to maintain their quality look, you may want to shop for windows that don’t require as much maintenance or upkeep. If your current windows often developed drafts or did a poor job of insulation your home, than it may be wise to purchase replacement windows with strong energy efficient capabilities.

  1. What are my goals for my new windows?

While it may seem odd to have goals for your windows, they actually play a greater role in your home than you make think. Ask yourself what you would like your new windows to do for you. Perhaps you would like them to provide more light of ventilation? Or maybe you are looking for a model that can help you reduce your monthly energy bill or increase your homes resale value? All of these goals can be completed by the right type of window style and material. The clearer you are about your expectation of your windows, the easier it would be to find a model that fits those expectations.

  1. What am I willing to invest in my replacement windows?

How much money are you willing to spend on your new windows? What about the amount of time you are willing to give? Every window material varies with the amount of repairs, upkeep, and maintenance it requires. By knowing ahead of time what you’re willing to invest in your dream windows, you can ensure you won’t be stuck with paying more money or spending more time than you anticipated.
