How To Choose a Window Contractor
When it comes time to choose Minnesota’s best window contractor, don’t get fooled by those commercials and advertisements promising low cost windows. Many of those companies advertise the cost of the window itself, but forget to mention the up-sells and additional costs of actually installing the windows.
You won’t get that with the professionals at Great Northern Builders. We provide competitive prices, but we are also honest and upfront and will send a trained field supervisor to discuss whether you need a window replacement or complete new window installation package. There are differences and that’s what many companies forget to tell customers in those commercials.
How Do you Know When Your Home Needs New Windows?
There are some obvious warning signs, such as a draft coming through the windows.
“If you feel air coming through your windows, it’s time to consider installing new windows,” says Chris Biljan, owner of Great Northern Builders.
And that’s what you want to avoid. You’re basically throwing money away if that’s the case, especially when it comes to the cold Minnesota and Wisconsin winters, or those extremely hot summer months. Homeowners with poor quality windows, leaky windows, cracked windows or windows that don’t open and shut properly are throwing money away because many think the solution is to turn the heat up or air conditioning down to help regulate/find the right temperature.
The bottom line is this: Drafty windows can drive up energy bills, costing you more money over time.
Common Window Specifications
“Installing energy efficient windows lowers your energy bills because your heat is not leaking out in the winter and your cool air is not leaking out in the hot summer months,” says Biljan.
