Building Your Dream Home and Buying Windows from Your Contractor
Congratulations! Building your dream home is an amazing feeling!
This is your opportunity to design your home exactly the way you want it. When you think about windows, chances are you spend the time thinking about where to place them in the room and what window style and color to select. What surprises me, is most people don’t spend much time thinking about what material their windows will be made from. This can be attributed to the endless other decisions you are making: floorplan, finishes, flooring, cabinets, color choices – the list goes on and on. It also can be because you trust your contractor, and you should. After all, they are responsible for the final product – YOUR DREAM HOME!
One thing most homeowners don’t realize is your contractor usually suggests installing builder grade windows. These windows are usually mass produced and meet the bare minimum Energy Star standards. An article published on Angie’s List outlines material hierarchy as follows: ultimate custom grade, custom grade, quality grade and finally builder grade. While installing builder grade windows may help in reducing initial building costs it can have long-term effects due to reduced energy efficiency resulting in higher heating and cooling costs and drafts, warranty type and length and the need to replace your windows in 7-10 years.
All new or replacement windows from AHT Wisconsin Windows come with the features below:
