Which Replacement Window Brand is Best?

If you’ve been shopping for replacement windows for any length of time, chances are you’re overwhelmed with information. You’re probably wondering if some companies are intentionally confusing the issue and chances are… you’re right!

When deciding which brand of replacement windows are best for your home, you’ll need to ask yourself a few basic questions:

  1. What look am I trying to achieve with my replacement windows?
  2. How much am I willing to spend on windows?
  3. Am I wanting name brand windows or simply good quality windows?

which replacement window brand is best

What Look Am I Trying to Achieve?

In Central PA, many of the houses have a similar style and much of the work we do is similar from home to home. Most homeowners are trying to get energy efficient windows that look nice (and don’t break the bank!).

Important questions when choosing which replacement window brand is best for your home based on look or style are:

  • Do I have to have wood windows (which are often more expensive) or would an exterior PVC bonded vinyl window serve the same purpose and cost less?
  • Does the brand of window offer the styles I need or want for my home?
  • Does the window manufacturer have finished work in the area so I can be assured the look I’m trying to achieve can be accomplished with the brand of windows I choose?

If you get confused in this process drop us a line so we can help you sort it out. Even if you don’t choose Zen Windows for your project, we love trying to offer some clarity.

How Much Am I Willing to Spend on Replacement Windows?

You could easily spend tens of thousands of dollars on replacement windows. There are dozens of companies that will happily overcharge you!

You can check out the annual Cost vs Value report to see the average cost for the most basic double hung style windows.

After you’ve read that, check out this post I wrote for another blog about replacement windows. I hope you find it useful!

Should I Get Name Brand Windows?

When I was in high school, I HAD to have a pair of Guess jeans (I know… it was a few years ago!). Paying that premium for the name alone probably cost me about double what I should’ve paid.

It’s no different with replacement windows when choosing which replacement window brand is best for your home. There are a number of manufacturers who do excellent work but don’t carry the expensive label of the big two or three that everyone has heard of.
