Considerations When Choosing Vinyl Windows (or Not choosing Vinyl)

Fiberglass windows

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2017: When choosing vinyl windows one important consideration now might be: Is vinyl the right choice?

Some fiberglass windows now are really outstanding and provide an amazing value. There has been a lot of innovation in fiberglass window technology in the past few years and I have to say I'm impressed.
I am working on a full article outlining the benefits of fiberglass....look for it soon or Contact Me if you need information sooner.

There are certain questions you need to ask yourself before you can decide if a vinyl window meets your needs, wants and budget. Below are three essentials.

What's The Reason For Getting New Windows

What is your main goal? Save money on heating and cooling? Investment in your home for possible resale? Reduce painting and maintenance? Improve your curb appeal? These are a few of the most popular reasons to replace your windows. Once you decide on replacing your windows it is important to select the window to meet your original goals. For instance a vinyl window for low maintenance, or a wood window to maintain a certain historic look on the interior. There are other materials as well but vinyl if by far the most common because of it's cost effectiveness and performance.

Finding a Replacement Window Contractor

Choose wisely here. Your contractor makes all the difference because a great window installed poorly is worse than a poor window installed perfectly! Make sure they've been in business for a long time, can provide numerous references and are experts in their field. Check the BBB and other online resources for reviews and feedback. Make sure they are properly licensed and insured in NJ. Also, ask if they use subcontractors or their own employees? If they use subs, how long have the subs been with them. I always suggest getting multiple quotes and selecting someone who meets all these qualifications and is also someone you feel very comfortable with. At TRC we maintain an A+ rating with the BBB and I am personally on every job from beginning to end!

Is Quality Worth It

Once you have selected a contractor, make sure they are representing a good window manufacturer. Our windows are one of the best on the NJ market and come in 3 trim levels depending on budget and needs of the homeowner. Even our lowest trim level is an excellent value and will outlast inexpensive off-the-shelf type windows from a retail center or national window chain. We are dedicated to quality materials and quality workmanship that will outlast all others! All of this at a price that will beat the competition. We keep our prices down by having no salespeople to pay, no subcontractors and having strong relationships with our manufacturers!
