It’s finally time, and you are so excited! You have been dreaming and planning of this since you bought your house 10 years ago. You knew that your home really needed new windows, but you also knew that it may take time before you could do it. Well, that time is now. Reflecting back on the last ten years you start to double check your list and be sure that you haven’t missed anything.
Design and Style:
The old wood single hung windows that are in this house have some traditional style value, but they sure don’t look good nor are they energy efficient. Not to mention you can barely operate the warped old sashes up and down. You have decided to replace the existing single units throughout the house with replacement double hung units. Being able to open the top sash for venting and the tilt in cleaning features are both amazing! Yes, double hung it is, except over there in the breakfast nook. Those four windows are going to be replaced by a beautiful bay window! That bay is going to open up that little nook so much! And over there, in the parlor, that big picture window is going to be replaced by a bow window. Choosing a bow for that spot over another picture window means that you’ll be able to open it up for venting but still will have all that wonderful natural lighting, and can’t you just see the plants sitting on the window sill? Plus, the curve of the bow will soften all the strong lines in that square room. Yea, most surely a bow will go perfectly there! Don’t forget the new half round picture window that is being put in the entryway to brighten up that space. Such a subtle yet fun way to open up a small space and add some natural light! Yes, you have considered design and style and these are just a few of the windows! Don’t get daydreaming again about the combination unit that is going in the master bedroom with the trapezoid and the sidelights over the venting awning, it’s all so exciting!
Installation and Warranty:
Designing which windows are going where and choosing style are crucial. Then there was the question of which window manufacturer to choose and who exactly would do the installation. Well, after researching all the major national brands, the obvious choice was a local company with a top of the line window that is locally manufactured and comes with a no worry “Lifetime Plus” warranty. With Window Nation, this part was easy. Their product is superior and their installation and service are outstanding. They have been a dream to work with. You were able to show them your ideas of changing things around; and they were open, honest, and helpful. They offered an expert view and opinion to your thoughts. They were and are most certainly your partner in this project. Window Nation sales and installation was and is most definitely the best choice.
There it is! Ten years of preparation. The design, the product, the installation, the warranty, the financing, yes they offer financing options as well, so why would I choose anyone else?
Here at Window Nation, we are proud to say that we can be your partner with every step of the window replacement project process. We can get you from design to finish with financing offered by Wells Fargo Financing National Bank with approved credit.

It can seem like the great unknown – the huge abyss! For most of us trying to decide the what, when, where, and how of replacement windows is such an intimidating task that it often will sit on our to-do lists without a check mark for years. It’s not that we don’t think it is important to accomplish or that it doesn’t really need to be done, but rather it is the fear of the unknown that keeps us from completing this job. After all, how much practical experience do we really have with replacing windows? It’s not exactly like it is a job that we do often, and for many of us, it is a job that we have never done before. We don’t have any basis in our experiences that would make us feel that we can tackle this huge undertaking successfully; so we put it off.
Well, that procrastination, no matter how understandable, is still costing you money; and the need for new windows is not going to just go away on its own. So let’s take a look at the main mysteries in the window replacement process and try to gap that huge abyss of the great unknown.
First of all, you need to know what the overall process is. Here at Window Nation, your experience will begin with a phone call to set up a free no-obligation in home inspection or a visit to one of our showrooms. Once your needs are clearly determined, you will receive a written proposal which will list all of the time frames, costs, materials, etc. Also, financing options will be discussed and finalized if necessary. Next, one of our specialists will discuss the details of your specific project with you, and we will order your windows and will set your install date.
Secondly, you need to know what to expect during the actual installation of your new replacement windows. Your installation team will arrive at the appointed time led by a factory trained and certified Master Installer. He will perform a walk-through with you to ensure that there are no misunderstandings or unanswered questions and to survey the work site again. Next, your existing window openings will be re-measured to ensure accuracy. Drop cloths will be laid to protect your floor and other items from dust and damage. We are also equipped and trained to follow EPA lead containment practices if necessary. Once this is complete, we will remove your old windows making sure not to disturb any interior trim or framework. The new custom built windows will be set into place, insulated, sealed, capped, and the exterior trim will be reinstalled. Finally, your team leader will review the job with you, show you how to operate your new windows, and answer any questions you may have. The very last thing is to make sure all areas are as clean as when we arrived. It is that simple.
Lastly, you may want to know if you should shop around. This last item is really a personal decision, but here at Window Nation, we are so sure of the superiority of our products and the expertise of our team that we are not afraid for you to compare ‘apples to apples’ so to speak. Look and see what is out there. In the end, we are certain that you will agree that Window Nation is the best choice.
Now that we have cleared the abyss and taken the fear out of the process of replacement windows, we encourage you to finally check ‘replacing windows’ off your to-do list; and just imagine the peace you can experience by filling your memory bank with the experience of a job well done and removing the fear of the unknown that you once had. When you think “Replacement Windows,” think “Window Nation!”
Are you feeling it? That frustration when you have windows that are a pain to open, hard or impossible to close and latch, or need a stick to stay open? Do you have a window that you wish you could open, but it is painted shut? How about a window that has been cracked for years and you just haven’t been able to do any more than apply duct tape to the crack? If you’ve had the windows in your home since you purchased your house, there is a good chance you’re dealing with window issues. You’ve probably heard the saying, “They don’t make them like they used to.” Well, when it comes to windows, that is actually a good thing. We’ve made incredible advances in window technology. It has never been a better time to upgrade. So, why not take that step? Here is the big reason many of us have for not getting new replacement windows, and why you might be making a mistake.
“I just don’t have the money to upgrade my windows.”
For most of us, money is tight. The last thing we want to do is spend money on something practical. But buying windows isn’t like installing a new furnace. This isn’t an investment that is going to hide in some dark recess of your home. New windows add quality of life. They can bring more light into your house. They are easier to clean than old windows. And, they can transform a home into something exciting to come home to.
It is easy to think that we can’t afford to get new windows, but for many homeowners, they can’t afford not to. Those old windows are actually costing you money. They let heat out in the winter and cold air out in the summer. New windows have specialized coating that prevents heat transfer. Light can get in, but heat is reflected. Plus, your new windows will have double or triple panes with gas in the space between to create a barrier that heat will have a harder time passing through. When you replace windows, you stop throwing money out your windows and start putting it into your pocket. It is an investment that literally pays for itself.
Replacement windows are outside my budget. At Window Nation, we have an incredible selection of windows and a team that knows how to customize those options to your specific needs. We know how to give you the best bang for your buck and how to stretch value while keeping your new windows within your budget.
Where am I going to get the money for replacement windows? We have financing options available that will turn that window remodeling job into a low monthly payment rather than one lump sum.
There are lots of reasons to wait on getting new windows, but don’t let them stop you. Take the savings from your energy bills and put it on your monthly window payment and start living with gorgeous new windows today.
