It’s More Than Just Buying The Best Replacement Windows

Investing in replacement windows is one of the least expensive upgrades to a home and provides great return on investment!  Today’s replacement windows are energy efficient in both aluminum and vinyl versions.   Ensuring your replacement window of choice serves you for years to come has a lot to do with the installation.

The Direct Windows installers deliver years of experience gained from doing custom window and  replacement window installations in Akron, Canton, Cuyahoga Falls, and throughout Ohio. 

  • Replacement window installation of energy efficient double pane windows, triple pane windows, single or double hung windows requires precise measuring when ordering to ensure windows fit just right. 
  • Prior to installation, handling of the replacement window to ensure Argon, Krypton, Low-E, Fusion-welded frame and sash, and multi-layer weather stripping are maintained as prepared at the replacement window manufacturer requires attention to detail to assure your investment will serve you for the long-term.
  • Caulking the surround of replacement windows adds weatherproofing and ensures the window is well set.  Using the best quality caulk, applying with a steady hand, and creating clean lines makes for easy cleaning during spring and fall window cleaning.
  • Bending metal for capping with a seam ensures it does not show waves over time.  This fold over produces a solid metal piece that holds its structure well, again assurance your investment will serve you for years to come.

The Direct Windows installers are committed to these methods and materials for the long-term durability of your replacement windows, and your long-term satisfaction on your investment. 

How can you tell if the replacement window installer you are hiring is going to do a good job?

When hiring an Ohio replacement window installer in Akron, Canton, Cuyahoga Falls, or anywhere else for that matter, a factor that is often not considered is the materials used for the install.

The obvious is to ask for references and read reviews of past work. While this can certainly give you a good idea as to the short-term quality, it isn’t always the best predictor of long-term quality, since references and reviews are usually provided within days, weeks or months of completion of the replacement window installation.

Warranty on the replacement windows and replacement window installation is another factor to consider. Are your windows covered by a 5, 10, or lifetime warranty? Is the warranty transferrable if you sell your home?

Another way to gauge the likelihood of a good replacement window installation is by checking the Better Business Bureau for accreditation and rating, and if they are HomeAdvisor “Screened & Approved”.

As for the long-term durability and satisfaction with a replacement window installation, perhaps the best method is to ask questions. The best replacement windows installation services in Akron will be able to tell you specifically what materials they will be using, and why. This is in addition to the replacement window features and type of replacement windows as discussed above. This can include the flashing tape, caulk, insulation and even the type of screws or nails.
