When designed well and installed properly, replacement windows are one of the very best ways to elevate your New England home—boosting its energy efficiency, transforming its style, increasing its resale value, and more. The benefits are practically endless!
Of course, the key to a lifetime of satisfaction is choosing the right window replacement contractors for the job. Here are a few key factors to consider.
1. Quality Engineering
New England’s four seasons are a major draw for local residents and tourists alike, but they also mean that your windows must withstand everything from warm sunshine to blustery blizzards. For that reason, you need home replacement windows that are built to endure!
Look for key indicators of window construction quality, including:
- Fusion-Welded Frames
- Durable Frame Materials, Such as Insulated Vinyl
- Double- or Even Triple-Pane Glass
- ENERGY STAR Certification
- Built-in Screens for Pure Airflow
- Tilt-in Sashes That Offer Safe, Easy Cleaning
2. Product Variety
Even the best replacement windows will fall short of your expectations if you’re limited to just a few styles. To make sure that your needs are fully met—from form to function—choose a company that offers every window style on the market.
At ProEdge Remodeling, for instance, we’re proud to install everything from bays and bows to casements and double hungs. We even offer custom windows and ultra-tough storm windows, too! Each window style is held to the same exceptionally high standards, giving you great aesthetic and functional variety with proven performance.
3. Reliable Warranties
Warranties matter just as much as the windows you choose, ensuring that if anything goes wrong, you’ll be safe from the unexpected nightmare of massive repair costs. Don’t just accept the vague promise of warranty coverage, either! Take the time to ask what’s included and what’s not.
At our New England replacement window company, we offer:
- Lifetime Parts and Labor Warranties
- 25-Year Labor Warranty on Transfer
- Vinyl Window and Aluminum Product Warranties
4. Experienced Installers
For almost every home remodel—from roofing to siding to windows—the most common cause of premature failure is improper installation. That means that you absolutely cannot settle for window installers who don’t know what they’re doing!
In addition to the hard number of years in business (which is 55+ for us at ProEdge Remodeling), check for other important characteristics that denote experience you can trust:
- Positive Customer Reviews
- HomeAdvisor Screened and Approved Status
- Proper Licensing and Insurance
- BBB Accreditation
5. Local Business
Last but not least, make sure that you get reliable results by working with a local replacement window company. Only locally based businesses truly know the area’s housing market, common construction styles, municipal/state building codes, energy efficiency requirements, weather patterns, and other pieces of key information. You’ll also get peace of mind that should anything happen, your window installers can be easily located to help.
