Not all replacement windows are of equal quality. For fewer problems and long-lasting durability, homeowners should purchase windows that are fusion-welded as opposed to those that are screwed together.

The supplier you choose is at least as important as the window itself. To ensure quality service well after the windows have been installed, it is important to work with an experienced company that is locally owned and operated; someone who you know will be there when you call.

Before deciding to install replacement windows yourself, always check the manufacturer s warranty. Some replacement window manufacturers will not cover their products unless they ve been installed by a professional.

No matter what other features a window may have, the most important thing to look for is the Energy Star logo. To be designated an Energy Star product, a replacement window must meet the highest standards for energy efficiency. With Energy Star windows, you can expect to save up to 35% off your fuel bills.
