Unless you’re an expert, it can be hard to tell good windows from bad windows simply by looking. So if you don’t do your due diligence, you could wind up buying a sub-par replacement window in Central PA… or paying too much for a good one. And since you’ve likely never purchased replacement windows before, you probably have no idea how to know if you’re getting the best deal.
That’s why we’re here to help.
Below are a couple tips for finding the best replacement windows—at the best price—in Central PA. Follow this advice, and you’ll be in a MUCH better position to get a great deal on superior windows.
This might seem obvious. But you want to beware not just of replacement windows out of your price range, but also replacement windows BELOW your budget.
We’ll explain. If a company quotes you $400 or less per window (including installation), that’s a bad sign. It’s simply not possible to manufacture, sell, and install QUALITY vinyl replacement windows at such a low price. Replacement vinyl windows that cost $400 or less are almost certainly made with inferior parts. The result is a weak window that performs poorly and has inadequate energy efficiency.
The best vinyl replacement windows in Central PA are priced around $499 to $799, installed. A lot of companies charge more than that for vinyl replacement windows. But in these cases, you’re not getting a better window—you’re just making the company more profit!
Have you ever seen those commercials where a company spokesperson blindfolds someone and has them taste-test their product and the more expensive brand’s product? If so, you know how those commercials always end: the taste-tester either can’t tell the difference between brands, or actually prefers the less expensive brand.
It’s like that with replacement windows.
The truth is that the most well-known (i.e., most advertised) window brands are not always the best. The most expensive? You bet. But the best value? No way.
There is substantially NO difference in looks, performance, energy efficiency, or anything else in a quality replacement window from a “prestigious” window brand and a quality window that costs hundreds of dollars less. The big-name brands simply position their windows as high-end windows to sell to people who want the highest quality and don’t know the difference.
See the numbers in the chart below to get a feel for where all that extra money is going when you buy expensive windows—remember: the window in this example is identical in every important performance category. The extra money goes mainly into ADVERTISING—both on behalf of the manufacturer AND the dealer. So unless you want to foot the bill for as much as $5,000 (for a whole house of windows) in advertising that it took to get you as a customer, you’ll be better off with a less expensive window.
