Hi again… if you read my home page then you should know by now that I’m a home improvement professional. Besides building all sorts of structures and buildings over the years. I’ve also been installing windows for about 20 years as well. We’ve been replacing Colorado Springs windows here in Colorado Springs and near by surrounding areas since 1993. In the beginning I started out, like many of us working for one of those big box window places.
I’ve seen it all, from a fast talking sales pitch to a 20 window one day installation job.. Wow….! I always wondered about that?
Colorado Replacement Window
It didn’t take me long to figure out that many unsuspecting customers were being taken advantage of. I always felt uneasy about these types of practices, so I then started my own business. I wanted to give people an honest deal and a quality installation job. Our motto is to do one window job at a time, we’re there everyday, all day, until all the windows get done correctly, efficiently and most importantly cost effectively.
According to many surveys from the real estate industry the buying and selling trend for homes these days.. isn’t so much about name brand anymore. People are looking for decent quality and value. There are a few good companies that have been servicing our area for many years. Read what this window manufacture with a service office right here in Colorado Springs has to offer…. I have personally installed hundreds of these windows and to this date, have not any complaints.
Although Alside window is not a big name brand that is nationally recognizable, such as a couple of other big box names, regardless, the proof and quality stands for itself and that’s good for you.. I have found very little difference in the window construction and the actual make up of a vinyl window from a name brand manufacture as opposed to a not so famous brand of windows. The specifications are virtually the same, all of the LOW E features are the same, and they also provide the same warranties to qualify for the recent Gov’t $1500.00 tax credit..in 2010-11. These specifications must be adhered to in order to qualify for this credit. So does it make much sense to pay for a name brand source.. you be the judge?
I take nothing away from name brand windows they have earned their right to charge what ever they feel is justified, and for many homes this is the way to go.. but take a look at this window replacement project from a local home here in Colorado Springs ..
Prior to this makeover the wind was howling into the front window..the new vinyl window with LOW E along with the proper installation and surrounding insulation in all the right places made a huge difference. We also did the stone work and the front siding, giving this home a completely new front look from the way it was before.
Home owner has made a couple of references on our behalf . Its great thing to do a wonderful job as it always has a way of coming back.
