With an abundance of information readily available at our fingertips, it’s easy to see how some false information on replacement windows can make its way into the bunch. Unfortunately, the majority of Mississauga homeowners don’t have enough experience with replacement windows to separate fact from fiction, which can result in paying high amounts for low-quality windows. At Magic Windows we want to ensure you have the right information to find your perfect windows, which is why we’ve created a short guide to common replacement window myths to be aware of.
#1 A Higher Cost Means a Better Window
While shopping for luxury items like watches or cars, it may make sense to believe the higher the price, the better the product. However, windows is one area where that isn’t always the case. Some replacement windows will sport a higher price tag simply due to their aesthetic appeal or due to a current design trend. However, there are still a number of models and materials, like vinyl, that come with a low price tag and a wide range of benefits.
#2 Always Go for Vinyl Windows with the Blue Tint
This is one myth that is derived from fact. It all began when word got out that some of the higher quality vinyl windows have a blue tint as evidence of an additional chemical added for increased insulating capabilities. Unfortunately once word caught on, some manufacturers began adding a blue dye to their windows to create the same appearance. When in doubt, always check the label to know what’s real and what’s just show.
#3 It’s Impossible to Customize Your Windows
With the right window material you can easily customize your windows to fit whatever color or style you like. Depending on the material you can either customize the windows yourself by painting or staining the frame or place a custom order with the manufacturer.
#4 Glass Density Doesn’t Matter
Sadly, the density of a window’s glass is one area that commonly goes overlooked by homeowners. While it may not seem like a significant matter, having windows with double or triple paned glass installed in your home can help block out excess exterior noise, improve your home’s insulation and even reduce your chance of a break in.
