But is it, really?
The short answer is no, not always.
Oftentimes, you get what you pay for, and that holds true for replacement windows. Paying $200-300 per window might seem like a bargain, but these low-cost, high-hassle windows aren’t built to last. In addition, these windows rarely, if ever, come with a service warranty. This means you could be opening your wallet for replacement windows again in just a few short years or less.
Don’t believe it? Just ask around. When you buy based on lowest price alone, bad things can happen that end up costing you more money than better quality, longer lasting windows would have cost you in the first place.
More important than price is value. Value is the entire package you’re receiving from a company. To get the best value for your money, you should consider price and several other factors including, company reputation, professionalism, stability, and customer service.
To truly understand what is included in the cost of replacement windows, you should do your homework and find out as much information as possible about each company from which you receive a quote. In actuality, a reputable, trust-worthy company should provide this information before a quote is ever given. The more you know, the better prepared you are to make a wise investment that will last a lifetime.
