Time for New Doors & Windows?


By C&L Ward

With housing values rising, homeowners are considering more cosmetic updates that will help increase the value of their home. For the exterior, consumers are purchasing higher-end windows for the better functionality, beauty and energy efficiency. Front doors have been an easy and inexpensive way to give instant curb appeal, security and efficiency. For the interiors, the trend is barn doors to compliment the modern rustic interior style. In addition, closet systems are very popular for better functionality and organization.

How should I get started?

Make the call. Speak to a knowledgeable representative from a reputable company. Be prepared to answer questions about your project to figure out the best course of action – whether you want to repair or replace your product. If you decide replacement is the way to go, schedule an in-home consultation with a trained expert. The expert will come to your home and spend about 1.5 hours measuring, talking to you about the options and color choices and giving you a breakdown of the price, which can be viable for 30 days, depending on the company.

What should I consider?

  • Quality of the product – #1
  • Reviews from other clients
  • Style options
  • Price and Financing

Advice to Homeowners

Take your time and choose a company based on their positive reputation, years in business, customer service, warranty policies, quality of their craftsmanship and product selection. A decision should not be made on the least expensive quote. A consumer will regret purchasing low-quality products or skipped steps during the project installation. Be mindful who is installing your project. Is it a reputable company with a warranty? Or one guy in a truck who might not be around tomorrow? The lowest price may save you money today, however it could cost you more in the long run.
