What Considerations are Important When Buying Windows?

Be a Knowledgeable & Confident Shopper in the Window Replacement Journey!

There are five factors to keep in mind to have a knowledgeable conversation about what kind of windows you’re looking for and to proceed confidently into the window replacement journey. When you’re ready to discuss your home improvement goals call The Window Source for professionalism, honest pricing, and service.

1. Lifestyle Goals

The windows you choose should match your lifestyle! Keep in mind the people, places and things that are important to you as you shop for windows. Envision the rooms your new or replacement windows are going into and how those spaces function at various times of the day.  How does the natural change in seasons impact those visions? Are there safety features that are important to consider?  Do you redecorate frequently?  Do you live in an area with extreme temperatures or weather events?  Is your neighborhood noisy? The climate zone where you live will influence the type of window that would be the most energy efficient for your home.  Your lifestyle goals will influence the styles of windows you choose. 

2. Budget Goals

Factors like window materials, the size of windows, and additional features or options all play a factor in determining the cost of a new or replacement window. When you’re ready to start planning your budget, schedule a free in-home consultation to get a better idea of what windows will cost. The Window Source has low maintanince, energy efficient products for every homeowner. Always remember to ask about special financing offers or seasonal promotions that can help you save.

3. Window Types

The Window Source offers many types of windows including awning, casement, sliding, bay and bow as well as single- and double-hung windows, all of which are custom ordered to fit your home. Special Order windows, including picture windows and shape windows are also available. If you’re not sure which window type(s) to choose to match your design concept, don’t worry – a member of The Window Source team will share ideas about which style of window will fit best in the various spaces in your home.

4. Window Features and Options

Selecting the window colors and finishes to match your lifestyle goals is another consideration in the window buying process.  Grille patterns that complement the architecture of your home and glass options that enhance overall energy efficiency are also ways to customize your windows.  Learn more about ways you can personalize by browsing through our resource pages and our project photos for additional inspiration.  

5. Window Science

Multi-pane glass, warm edge spacers, Low-E glass coating, non-toxic gas filler, and glazing are all considerations in the science of energy efficient windows. Learning more about these key elements in energy efficient windows will help you understand why replacement windows reduce home energy use.

“Fantastic Company and true to their word! The crew was so professional and polite. We had our entire house of windows done and it only took 2 days. The quality of these windows are amazing and we couldn’t be happier! Don’t pay the high price that other companies want. This is the real deal!”

Jennifer Rochester, NH

“The Window Source of Tulsa was recommended to us. We received bids from three window replacement companies. Window source had the best product at the best price. The installation was on time and professional. We were kept informed through out the process. We are very pleased with the final product. About two weeks after the windows were installed I broke the outside pane of one window while mowing the yard. I contacted Window Source and told them what had happened, offering to pay for the replacement. They replaced the window free of charge. They are a pleasure to do business with.”
