Before you do anything, make sure you start this project at the right time of year. Although the weather worldwide can be temperamental, your best choice would be to choose late spring or early fall. While windows are being replaced, your home will be open to heat, cold and rain, so it’s best to do this during the mildest possible time. If you live in a climate zone or a latitude that provides year-round good weather, you won’t have to worry about this issue before starting.
When you are getting bids from individual companies, be prepared for aggressive salespeople who are only concerned about making a sale. Don’t make a decision without taking the time to make comparisons and getting emotions out of the choice. Remember that you are in charge, and that the decision is yours. When you have several estimates you will be able to think things through, and make the best conclusion. You do not want price alone to determine which company to use.
Another important aspect to consider is the security factor of the new windows that you are about to install. Unfortunately, in this day and age, you have to consider how secure your windows are and how inviting to burglars and intruders. What we are referring to is having a great locking system on the windows themselves so the burglars will not be able to so easily enter your home. Take a few minutes to look at the different lock options on the windows that you are going to purchase prior to installation. Some people think that window locks aren’t that important because a thief can always break the glass, but the fact is most burglars are looking for a quiet and safe way to enter a home and don’t want to start smashing glass, so a good lock will deter them.
