If you’re researching window and patio door companies in Central PA for your project, you no doubt want to get the best value for your money.
But there is a common misconception many homeowners have when it comes to value in this industry: People tend to think that the lower the price is, the better the value they are getting.
In reality, this usually couldn’t be further from the truth.
Let’s say you get three quotes for 10 vinyl replacement windows in Central PA. One quote is $3,000, one is $6,000, and the other is $10,000.
The $3,000 quote is, sorry to say, not going to get you the quality you want. This quote works out to $300 per window. If you read this blog with any regularity, you know that replacement windows at these prices provide substandard energy efficiency and performance (see exhibits One, Two, and Three). That’s not just us saying it — do an internet search for customer reviews for windows at these prices. The results aren’t pretty.
On the other hand, the $10,000 quote is simply WAY too much for 10 vinyl replacement windows. That works out to $1,000 per window — a price you should pay only if you need something like wood windows for a custom home. Even the best vinyl replacement windows shouldn’t cost this much. If a window and patio door company in Central PA quotes you a price like this, it means they are just plain greedy with their markup. In this case, it’s “Danger, Will Robinson!”
What about the $6,000 quote? Is it a good value? Yes. Among these three quotes, the $6,000 window quote is hands down the best value. This works out to $600 per window, right in the “sweet spot” for getting the best vinyl replacement windows WITHOUT overpaying. This price covers the cost of manufacturing, selling, and installing the windows without outrageous markup. In other words, it’s the best value!
