  1. Failing to ask enough questions
    There just aren’t too many questions to be asked when you’re in the process of such a huge investment like replacing your windows. When you begin the process of vetting companies and looking through style, material, and price options, it’s only natural to feel some anxiety. But, don’t let the excitement or anxiety keep you from asking everything you want to ask! It’s imperative that you feel fully informed and completely comfortable with the decisions you’ve made. So, don’t hold back; ask away! 
  2. Choosing a window based exclusively on price
    Window replacements aren’t a yearly thing—on average, homeowners experience this process once or twice in a Windows are an investment. Though it’s tempting to choose the most attractive price, consider the investment you’re preparing to make and the longevity and semi-permanence of the project. You don’t want to have to replace your windows again, so it is wise to choose exactly what you want and what your home needs to function well, be energy efficient, and (one day) help you earn a return if you choose to sell. 
  3. Replacing windows without professionals
    No matter what the home design television shows say about “doing it yourself,” a window installation project does require a professional team. There’s just too much risk, too many required tools, and too much expertise needed for the average homeowner to handle this him- or herself.
