Looking for new windows or doors for your Anaheim home? There are certainly plenty of things that you should be thinking about, but we’re going to help you discover five of those things. This isn’t meant to be an all-inclusive list of things to consider, nor is an endorsement, either by admission or omission, about the aspects that are important to choosing the right windows and doors for your home.

With that said, at Pacific Shores Window and Doors, we take great pride in helping every single customer who comes through our showroom doors in Fountain Valley. That means that even if you decide that you’re better served by another company, we’ll do everything we can to help you get the right information.

And information is one of the most important assets to have when it comes to home improvement projects. This brings us to the first thing to think about when looking for new windows and doors for your home in Anaheim.

1. The mega home improvement stores are traps

You can find just about anything you need for home improvement in these mega home improvement outlets. Walking into the store, you’re overwhelmed with all of the items, from garden to outdoor tools, lumber, plumbing, and all the way to appliances and, of course, windows, and doors.

The problem with that is when it comes to windows and doors, you’re rarely going to find a brand that is of high quality. You will likely recognize the brands that these stores carry, and while name recognition is important, they are lower-quality windows and doors. Forget the price tag: pound for pound, they won’t stand up to the best manufacturers in the country.

So why do these companies offer them? They cater to new home construction with these brands. They are inexpensive and that tends to attract homeowners looking to replace their windows and doors. However, they won’t help increase the value of your home nor will they do nearly the job at improving energy efficiency. Let’s face it, living in Anaheim, energy efficiency is important when cooling your home. Shop around at these places, but make sure you also visit Pacific Shores Window and Doors before making a decision. We’re confident you’ll understand why we’re simply the better choice.


2. You are only limited by your imagination and your budget.

Put out of your mind the fact that you have certain size windows in different rooms on your home, or that the entry door is a single door and you’d like a double-wide door. When it comes to home improvement with windows and doors, you’re only limited by your imagination. And your budget.

Just about anything that you want to do, as long as it doesn’t interfere with structural support is possible. You’ll spend more, but you can certainly completely transform your home with a few changes. The best way to get some great ideas is to visit the Pacific Shores Window and Doors showroom in Fountain Valley. It’s one of the largest showrooms for windows and doors that you’re going to find anywhere in the area.


3. Savings

This can cover a couple of different things. You don’t want to spend too much on the windows in your new home. Doors can cost several thousand dollars, especially the entry door. You want to make a wise investment in your home, but you also want to temper it with some savings.

The best way to boost your savings is to do your homework before making any decision about windows and doors. The more you learn about all of the available options and how much you could save by adding certain options (such as saving on your energy bills), the more you’ll be able to make the best decision for you and your family.

You could potentially save hundreds or even thousands of dollars on cooling expenses every year with the right windows and doors. More heat (in the winter) and cold (in the summer) air is lost through your windows and doors than in any other part of your home. The more savings you get every year, the more these new windows and doors will pay for themselves over time.


4. Company installers or independent contractors?

Once you decide on the best windows and doors for your Anaheim home, you’re going to be met with some questions about installation. Most window companies provide their own installers, but you may be tempted to hire your cousin’s best friend who has a pickup truck and tools, and maybe he’s installed a few windows in the past. You could certainly save some money by doing this, but the risk could cost you thousands in the long run.

At Pacific Shores Window and Doors, we train every single one of our installers and all of our crews have been installing different types of windows for 20 to 40 years. You just can’t beat that level of experience.

That’s not the only reason, though. When you have high-quality windows, manufacturers warranty them. Unless they are not installed by certified, trained installers. Just because someone knows how to install a basic window, many new windows, if installed improperly, may not function properly or could break (if not level, etc.).

You’ll fare much better by hiring someone with a lot of experience, and you’ll protect that important manufacturer’s warranty.


5. What do you need to worry about when it comes to installation?

When you’re expecting installation for your windows and doors, some companies require that you move all furniture away from the windows to be replaced. At Pacific Shores Window and Doors, we understand that this can be challenging for some homeowners, so we offer assistance with this, at no extra charge.

We also provide drop cloths to protect your floors. Once we’re done, you’ll never even know we were there, except for the brand new windows that you’d have in your home.

So now that you know some of the common things to consider when replacing the windows and doors in your home, what are you waiting for? Contact Pacific Shores Window and Doors right now and you could be enjoying brand new windows and doors in as little as two weeks!
