Building a new home can be one of the most exciting, stressful, and terrifying tasks you ever undertake. While the final product is everything you have always wanted (you are helping to design the thing, remember?), the process itself can be a bit overwhelming.
One of the best parts about building a home from scratch is also one of the worst parts. You get to decide exactly what everything looks like. You get to choose every last detail of your home, from the floor plan to the bathroom fixtures. There are so many decisions to make, but you don’t know the first thing about construction or siding, roofing, and new construction windows. So how do you decide? How can you be sure you are making the right decisions?
How to Choose New Construction Windows
When it comes to windows, it is best to first choose a company. There are numerous options out there, from JELD-WEN to Panda, Tradewood, and more. Each brand of window has its own unique set of benefits. So how do you compare each to make the best decision?
- Aesthetic Appeal: While it shouldn’t be your only concern, curb appeal does matter. So it is important to find a window that you like or, better yet, love.
- Energy Efficiency: The right windows – Energy Star qualified windows – can save homeowners up to 30% more energy than a home built to the national energy code. Plus, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), “New, energy-efficient windows eventually pay for themselves through lower heating and cooling costs, and sometimes even lighting costs.”
- Glass: Great energy efficient windows start with energy efficient glass. And glass also plays a role in UV control and noise reduction.
- Warranty: What kind of warranty is offered with your new construction windows? And remember, a warranty is only as good as the company behind it.
At the end of the day, perhaps no window matches those of JELD-WEN, one of the industry’s leading manufacturers and marketers of windows. JELD-WEN offers multiple replacement and new-construction lines in popular double-hung and casement styles, including wood, wood-clad, vinyl, and aluminum.
