Windows are a smart investment.
There is a misconception in the market place that windows are cheap. They are viewed as a commodity rather than an investment into the value of your home.
Think about it…
A lot of homeowners spend thousands of dollars on one bathroom remodel.
Nor do people think it's strange to spend upwards of $30,000 on a car, though, once driven off the lot, quickly depreciates in value.
So why are windows any different?
Yes, there are windows out in the marketplace that are cheap. But that doesn't mean they're good. Likewise, if you want good windows, they are probably not going to be cheap.
How are windows an investment:
An investment builds value.
If you think about it, each window in your home is the only thing standing between you and the elements...heat, cold, rain, bugs, UV rays, etc. Without that window, there is nothing stopping these things from freely going in and out of your house.
And that includes energy and money savings!
In addition to saving on heating and cooling costs, a good window can save on maintenance expenses in the future. (How much does it cost to paint a window, let alone an entire house full of windows?) In order to upkeep wood windows and keep them from deteriorating and rotting, painting is needed.
But with Infinity from Marvin fiberglass replacement windows, they have a commercial grade finish which means you are save on painting costs since that is not needed. Likewise, you get the peace of mind that you are doing your project right the first time - so no more replacing 'replacement' windows.
Listen to a testimony from one of our customers on how they saved money with Infinity replacement windows.
While saving on painting, maintenance, heating and cooling costs, you are also adding to your home by putting in a product that looks good. No plastic windows with bulky frames. No plastic parts and pieces that come apart over the years. And because the frame material and the glass are made out of the same original elements - silica sand - you don't have to worry about seal failure when your windows expand and contract throughout the seasons.
