Need to replace your windows? A window is an expensive home addition, and buying the wrong window can be costly.
According to this video by Huston Window Experts, there are five common mistakes you can make when buying new windows. Knowing what these mistakes are can help you avoid the pitfalls and make a buying decision you can live with.
The mistakes you may make when shopping for windows are:
First, shop for a window instead of evaluating the window companies on offer. Remember that the window company will be in your life for a while, and you need to find the best and most scrupulous company around.
You want to make an informed decision about the windows on offer and not be pressured into a decision by an overzealous salesman.
Second, don’t focus on sales numbers. Choose a window that will match your home.
Third, don’t buy what is in style at the moment as thick framed windows will only look ugly. Your windows should let in light.
Fourth, don’t rush your buy. Wait and a sales manager will call you with a better offer.
Finally, always choose cash over credit. If you take a deal that offers zero interest, you should know the price has been padded since the company needs to pay the interest.
Choose wisely when window shopping. Don’t feel pressured into choosing what’s popular or what’s on sale. Instead, look at the window company’s reputation, consider their products, and choose a window you want to look at forever.
