Replacement Windows and Doors in Des Plaines, Illinois
Many homeowners, whether they live in Des Plaines or any other suburb of north Chicago, who consider replacement windows for their home think first and foremost about the cost that is associated with this home improvement project. At A ll Star Products, we understand the common concerns and questions that you might have when it comes to replacing the windows in your home and we want to answer any questions that you may have before you begin to commit to any purchase decision.
Below are some common questions and concerns that people have had about window replacement, with answers that will hopefully allay your concerns.
Why shouldn’t I get the cheapest windows I can find? After all, they’re just windows! They are windows, but that’s not all they are. Your windows and doors are where you will end up losing the most heat during the winter, and the most cool air during the summer months. They are also the heart and soul of your home and its connection to the outside world. When you have beautiful windows that bring the right character into any room, you’re going to enjoy spending more time in that room. Also, windows are the center, the beginning point, of any interior design. You begin with the windows, the light that they let in, and the coverings that you’ll choose (whether that’s a wooden shutter, drapery, blind, or other style) will set the tone for the entire room. If your windows don’t look great, are old and dingy, or don’t allow the ideal amount of sunlight into the room, then they aren’t doing their job. If you want the cheapest windows that you can find, then you’re going to miss out on a lot of benefits, including a higher assessed value. That’s right, with the right windows, you can actually increase the value of your home.
I don’t want to spend a lot, though. Sure, everyone can understand the concern that homeowners have about window replacement when it comes to cost. You see your windows as something basic, and just like your furnace or the garage door that has become sticky or broken, you don’t need to spend that much to replace them, right? This manner of thinking originates from the concept that windows are just another expense that homeowners have to deal with from time to time. It’s why do many homeowners put off replacing their windows for as long as possible. However, those same homeowners will spend $20,000, $30,000, and much more renovating their kitchen and bathrooms. They’ll spend thousands of dollars making the outside patio area livable, yet they balk at spending money on new windows. Next to kitchen renovations, window replacement can actually have the most significant impact on your home’s appeal and value. That’s why it’s so important to think about it as an investment and not an expense. When you think about it as an investment, you’ll begin to understand that it’s more important to choose the rightwindows for your home, rather than trying to save money.
If window replacement in Des Plaines is going to cost me several thousand dollars, I’ll have to pass.For now. You might be worried about how much it will cost to get new windows in your home. This is the main reason why homeowners in Wheeling delay replacing their windows. However, there are a number of options that could help you get the windows that you not only want, but the windows that will add value and aesthetic value to your home. You can contact the financial institution through which you got your mortgage and if you have any equity in it, you might qualify for a home equity loan. This could give you the money that you need to improve the quality and value of your home. You could also get financing through a window replacement company. No all window replacement companies will offer financing options, so it’s a good idea to choose one that will help you manage this investment in the most affordable and cost-effective manner. All Star Products can assist with helping you get the financing that you might need to make this dream a reality.
Do I have to pay for windows and installation up front? At All Star Windows, you don’t have to pay for your windows up front. You would be required to pay a certain amount once you find the windows that you want, and then make a payment once every window has been installed in your home. If you choose to finance your windows, then that would be a slightly different process. All Star Windows aims to make the process of buying new windows as easy as possible.
Can’t I save money by installing them myself, or choose a cheaper contractor? You could, on paper, save money, but in the long run, you could end up spending far more for this effort. You see, at All Star Products, we not only offer a wider selection of brand name windows than any other window replacement company, but our team of installers are certified to install each brand. If you want to install them yourself, that’s your choice, but if something is wrong with the window, or doesn’t go as planned, don’t expect the manufacturer to honor the warranty. The same holds true if you choose an installer that isn’t certified by the manufacturer. The best investment you can make is to choose a company that has plenty of experience installing the windows that they sell. All Star Products has been serving the Des Plaines region for almost 30 years and we have the professionalism and knowledge to handle any job, any size window, in any location.
