When thinking about new replacement windows for your home, expect a lot of information to be thrown at you. A lot. The very first decision you should make is choosing a respected and experienced company. Be very aware of “pop up” companies that offer you a “too good to be true” deal. What typically happens is that once you start experiencing problems with your windows these “pop up” companies have already packed up and set up shop in another town. Instead, choose a company that has been selling quality window for a long time! It’s as simple as that!
