What Questions Should I Ask When Buying Minneapolis Replacement Windows?

Of course you’re going to have questions if you’re shopping for replacement windows here in Minneapolis At least, we hope you do!  But knowing which are the important questions to ask will go a long way to you being happy with what you choose.

Spoiler:  ‘How Much Will This Window Cost’ Isn’t on the List of Important Questions

Most people ask about the price of the window and the installation cost.  While we understand the financials may have an impact on your final decision, questions about price should rank lower on your list than other elements.  We caution prospective customers about letting price be the most important factor.  Letting price be the reason you choose a window could lead to disaster. And it will likely result in your wasting money.  There’s a reason ‘you get what you pay for’ is such a popular saying.  With replacement windows that’s definitely the case – buy cheap windows, and you won’t get the value you’re looking for.

The most important question to ask is, “What will I get if I replace my existing windows with these?”  A question like that opens up the dialog between homeowner and replacement window technician as to benefits of a particular window.  We’re going to assume that you and your window company rep have already had a conversation about your reasons for replacing your windows.  That allows the window company to recommend particular window styles or manufacturers that would be a good match for your purposes.  And then the answer to your question should address those.

The follow-up question we’d recommend is, “What additional options are available with these windows?”  For example, if your top priority is cutting your utility bills, then discussing what’s available to customize your windows to maximize energy savings is a good way to get to the perfect window solution for you.
