Planning for Replacement Windows

Step 1  Figure out which windows in your home need to be replaced.  Do you want to replace all of them or just certain ones?
Step 2  Determine your budget so you know just how much you have to spend.  The number of windows and setting your budget are determining factors as to what style of windows you can purchase.

Step 3  Examine various window types and decide what style would best fit your home.  Be sure to find the right windows to suit your needs and that are right for our region.

Step 4  Do research and gather all the information you can.  Familiarize yourself with the products and options available to you. This is a great opportunity to write down any questions you want answered.

Step 5  Get in contact with several local replacement window distributors and dealers.  Ask questions and receive price quotes.

Step 6  Find out about the warranties and service support.  Learn about the company itself and their qualifications. The credibility of the company is important.

Step 7  Based upon window type, price, service and your impressions, select where you would like to make the purchase.
