Difference Between Cheap Windows and High Quality Windows
When looking for windows, you’ll always be faced with a choice. Whether you choose inexpensive windows or high-quality grade windows, one thing is certain, you want to know the right choice for your home or even rental property.
Low quality windows (also known as builder grade) are one of the most readily available windows on the market. They are used for large construction projects and are basically a one-size-fits-all window. They can be limiting in the options you might want. Yes, they can be very cheap and can help with a quick renovation on a house that you might want to sell as soon as possible. Low quality windows tend to last about 10 years. This is half or even less than the life expectancy of a higher quality grade (about 20-25 years). Unfortunately, they are poorly constructed since they are mass produced and it’s hard to have quality control over how many they produce. When it comes to reselling the home they also fall short in this aspect- in that they don’t retain much of their value. They are good for flipping houses, a quick fix, or if you’re on a tight budget.
If you are looking for something with a long life span and won’t need as much maintenance, then a higher quality window will be the right choice for you. Built with premium grade vinyl, they will definitely outlast the builder grade windows by 10-15 years more. High quality windows like our C5 Windows are not only custom made for each opening of your home, but come with exclusive ®Neat Glass- a special coating that will keep your windows clean for longer without washing or cleaning them yourself. Since they are custom made to your specifications you can choose your color, how they open, as well as how they operate. C5 Windows also come with a 1 time transferable Lifetime Warranty. Yes, they can be more expensive at first. If you do the math on how long they last vs. cost, a lower grade window will end up costing just as much (or more) in the long run.
