3 HOME IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS YOU’RE SURE TO LOVE

Refresh Your Walls

Whether it’s a new color on the walls, some fresh artwork to improve your space, or even just a bit of thoughtful rearranging, changing up what’s on your walls is a quick and easy way to completely transform your living space.

Let’s tackle the paint idea first. Perhaps you moved into a home with white on every wall and ceiling and didn’t think much of it. Maybe you painted the walls when you first bought your house, but it’s feeling a little stale. If that’s the case, a new coat of paint can make all the difference in the world!

Once that’s taken care of, figuring out what should go on the walls is really what will help to tie everything together. Whether that means rearranging what you already have by taking pieces and putting them up in different rooms or it means going out and getting completely new art, the end result is that your home will feel wonderfully updated, fresh, and exciting.

Declutter The Basement

If your basement is like most people’s, there’s a good chance that there is some stuff hanging around down there that you just don’t want anymore. From old dishes to beat-up furniture to books, a lot of things tend to end up in our basements.

Why not take the opportunity to get rid of the stuff that’s just taking up space? You’ll feel so much better each time you descend the steps into your basement when you open the door and find that there’s not much down there, and what is is well organized. At the end of the day, getting rid of the stuff you no longer want or need is never a bad idea!

Get Replacement Windows

Have your current windows seen better days? Are you interested in updating the look of your windows? Did you hear that the newest energy efficient windows can save you big bucks? Whatever the reason, having replacement windows installed in your home is never a bad idea. 

Best of all, at WinChoice USA, we’re licensed, bonded, and insured, so you know the job will get done right. On top of that, we back our work with an industry leading lifetime warranty for maximum peace of mind. No matter your reason for getting new windows, we think you’ll find that they’re just the thing that makes your home a wonderful place to live. And hey, if you have them installed now, you can enjoy the unbeatable feeling of opening them in a couple of months to let that soothing spring breeze in.

Window Installers: Why Should You Choose WinChoice USA?

There is no doubt that having new windows installed is a big project for your home. For many, it’s and undertaking that can feel downright intimidating. At WinChoice USA, we totally understand. After all, no one really wants to spend the money on this type of upkeep for their home. It’s the things like new roofs, water heaters, air conditioners, and windows that aren’t exactly easy to get excited about. 

The truth, however, is that once you’ve replaced the things in your home that are outdated or aren’t working properly anymore, you often realize that it was money well spent. When it comes right down to it, these are the things that keep your home feeling comfortable and cozy. It’s not like you can simply let water come in through the roof, take cold showers every day, or deal with drafts coming in through the windows and driving your electricity bill through the roof.

Like we said, they’re repairs that aren’t often fun or exciting, but they are necessary. The good news is that at WinChoice USA, our team of window installers understands the situation that you’re in, and that’s why we’ll go above and beyond to make your life just a little bit easier even when things feel stressful.

That’s why we’ll make the entire process of getting an estimate one that goes as smoothly for you as possible. We’ll work with you to find a time that works for us to come by and we’ll get to work.

Instead, we’ll give you the facts, make sure you have our contact info, and wait for your call. It’s as easy as that.

In short, you can always count on us to be upfront with you and then to stand by what we do. It’s that same attitude that led us to create our unbeatable limited lifetime warranty.

Why Our Windows Are Made in America

At WinChoice USA, we love making our products right here in America. It’s right there in our name! After all, because we strive to be America’s choice for replacement windows, we want to ensure that you end up with a quality product, and the best way to do that is for us to make them right here in the States. 

Sure, we could enlist the help of overseas companies to manufacture the products that we make, but that would mean that we couldn’t be as hands-on when it comes to quality control. Instead, we make them here so that our team can ensure that everything is made just the way it’s supposed to be. We have high standards for the quality of the replacement windows we make because we want them to stand the test of time.

Speaking of which, each of our products is backed by an industry-leading limited lifetime warranty, ensuring that no matter what the future holds for your windows, you’re covered. It’s just another part of what makes our products so great! However, it starts with the quality of our products, and as we mentioned, the way we ensure top quality is to manufacture our windows in the good old US of A. It’s what sets us apart, and we want to share an inside look at what you can expect. Keep reading to learn more, or contact our team today to get a free estimate for your window installation project. 

Better Products — Period

When is the last time you bought something that was made in America? These days, it gets  harder and harder to do it even if you want to. It used to be easy to walk into a store and grab a pair of blue jeans that were woven at a local mill, sent to a local factory for assembly, and then shipped by a worker to their final destination. Nowadays, you likely have to take your search online to find jeans that are made in the United States.

The same is true for many other products. From boots to shirts to razors to dishes to watches, most of the items that we use on a daily process are made overseas. Why is that, you ask? There are a number of factors at play, and we certainly don’t want to pretend that we know how other companies make their business decisions. In many instances, however, it often comes down to the bottom line. In other words, can a company minimize its costs upfront to maximize its profits? This is a fair question. After all, overseas labor is nearly always less expensive than it is in the States.

Unfortunately, like we mentioned above, it means that the company doesn’t have as strict of control over the quality of the final product. Let’s go back to the example of blue jeans. If you’re old enough to remember this, there was probably a time that you could walk into a store and buy a pair of pants in your size without even trying them on. After all, the tag said your size, so you knew they’d fit. Nowadays, quality control is less rigid, and five pairs of pants in the exact same size will probably all fit quite differently.

The Same Is True of Replacement Windows

If the standards for quality control have disappeared for clothing, imagine what it’s like for windows! Is a window that’s supposed to measure 4’ x 4’ actually going to be that size? Add in the fact that many factories overseas are using the metric system and it gets even more confusing. American windows are generally measured in inches and feet, and similar measures in centimeters and millimeters are often just a little bit off

Do the workers in these factories do a fine job? Absolutely! Workers overseas are good people who work hard. At the end of the day, they’re just trying to make a living. Unfortunately, sometimes measurements can get lost in translation and products can arrive damaged during shipping. It’s just a fact of life.

We certainly don’t want to come across as a company that bashes products that aren’t made in America just for the sake of doing so. In fact, many products that come from factories across the globe are known for their high quality, craftsmanship, and attention to detail. For us, however, it just makes sense to manufacture our windows in the United States because it allows our team to be involved in every step of the process. The end result? A product that we know is superior because we’re able to oversee its production from the time your order is placed until the time our window installers are placing your replacement window in the frame.

When you choose WinChoice USA, the end result is a beautiful window, custom-made to suit your specific window opening. They’re made in the style of your choice, so whether you’re updating the look of your home or you’re simply in need of something that’s more energy efficient than what you have now, we think you’ll be pleased with what we have to offer.

You’ll also get our limited lifetime warranty, so you know you’re covered no matter what. It doesn’t get much better than that!

Why You Should Upgrade to Energy-Efficient Windows

If you are a homeowner, you have likely heard that energy-efficient windows can make a huge impact on your energy bill. As a certified installer of energy-efficient windows here at WinChoice USA, we are here to confirm that energy-efficient windows can have a huge impact on your energy bill and how comfortable you are in your home. 

Between the 1970s and 2010, there was a huge push towards the use and implementation of energy efficient windows in new construction. That said, this left most of the homes built prior to 1970 with less efficient windows.

At WinChoice USA, we believe that if you own an older home that you should seriously consider having energy-efficient windows installed — because even if you are happy with your current energy bills, it might just be because you don’t know what you are missing out on. 

In today’s blog post, we will be discussing why you should consider upgrading or replacing the current windows in your home with newer, more efficient windows. 

The Case for Energy-Efficient Windows

As a homeowner, it makes sense that you are reluctant to spend money on home renovations — after all, once you get started, where does it end? That said, if there is one renovation that you should seriously consider (aside from general maintenance), it is the installation of energy-efficient windows or the updating of your current windows. 

In the Southeastern United States, where WinChoice USA is the premier Top Rated National® window installation company, we live in a rather temperate climate — meaning that it can be easy to overlook your need for more efficient windows. While snow might not fall as often as northern and western states, homes in the Southeastern United States can still lose anywhere from 25-30% of the heating and cooling in any given home via inefficient windows. 

If you want to increase the retention of your home’s heating and cooling, we strongly suggest that you get in touch with us to schedule a window upgrade or window installation consultation. Below, we will explore the benefits of each option. 

Updating Existing Windows

Not only is our team here at WinChoice USA qualified to install new energy-efficient windows, but we are also a Top Rated National® window repair provider, here in the southeastern region. If your current windows are in good condition, taking steps toward increasing their efficiency might be the most worthwhile solution for your home. 

In fact, the following are all high-quality ways that our team can increase the efficiency of your existing windows:

  • Check the Existing Windows for Air Leaks – Over time, windows can shift — developing small cracks and openings that are hardly visible to the eye that allows air to pass through. When our team is performing a window consultation for your home, they will look for such problem areas and likely suggest that you have them repaired. 
  • Caulk & Weatherstrip the Existing Windows – If our team identifies air leaks in your windows, the next step is to caulk or weatherstrip the window so that the air can no longer pass through. The solution that our team chooses to use will be affected by the severity of the air leak. 

Things that you can do to increase the efficiency of your windows includes:   

  • Adding Window Treatments – If you want to increase the efficiency of your windows without getting our team of professional window repair specialists involved, you can always utilize window treatments like heavy curtains during winter months to minimize the effect of the air leaks or to help your inefficient windows retain heat. 
  • Install Storm Windows – Storm windows are also a valuable tool that you can use to increase the efficiency of your existing windows — and they act in the same way as a window treatment might. Storm windows can be temporary or permanent, but if you choose to have permanent storm windows installed, we urge you to let our team of window repair specialists help to prevent long-term damages.

While we do advocate for increasing the efficiency of your windows in whatever way possible, there really is no better way to do so than to have energy-efficient windows installed.

Upgrading to Newer, More Efficient Windows

At Winchoice USA, we always recommend that you upgrade your existing windows to a newer, more efficient option. Why? Well, to put it simply, while it might seem like a large investment, it is also an investment that will last longer. If you simply decide to upgrade your existing windows, you are solving the problem, but you are not necessarily extending their lifetime. 

When you have decided to update your windows, there are still a few considerations that you want to make (all of which our helpful team of window installations specialists would be happy to help you with):

  • What type of framing is best
  • What time of glazings are best
  • What style of window is best
  • What kind of spacers and fillings are best

Energy-Efficient Window Installation

Once you have worked with our window installation team to determine what energy-efficient window styles and qualities meet your needs, it is time to begin the installation process. When you work with our team you can expect quick, efficient installation so that you can rest easy knowing that your home is protected by high-quality windows. 

NOTE: When you have energy-efficient windows installed, it is important to make sure that they are installed in compliance with the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure that the window warranties are not voided. Luckily, when you work with our team, you can rest assured knowing that the installation technicians are experienced in following the manufacturer’s instructions — especially since at WinChoice USA we are both the manufacturer and the installer. 

Energy Efficiency Is a Click Away

Rather than continuing to pay high energy bills, we urge you to consider scheduling an appointment with our certified window repair and installation team. We would be happy to inspect your current windows and recommend a course of action that ultimately leads you paying lower energy bills and enjoying a more comfortable home. 

So what are you waiting for? Contact us today to schedule your free consultation!

What to Look for in Home Window Replacements

There comes a time in the life cycle of every home where the windows need to be replaced. For some, it is because of window damages and defects. For others, it is because the windows have served their 15–20-year lifespan and are simply outdated. 

Regardless of the situation that led to you seeking home window replacement, WinChoice USA is here to help you with all of your window replacement needs. From window shopping to window installation or custom window manufacturing, WinChoice USA is the premier Top Rated National® window manufacturer, seller, and installer in the southeastern United States. 

If you are considering replacing your home’s windows, we urge you to let our team of experienced window sellers and installers can help you find the perfect windows for your home. But what are the perfect windows for your home? What should you be looking for in new windows for your home?

In today’s blog post, we will be discussing what you should look for when shopping for new windows, as well as some of the important qualities that matter most in a home window replacement. Continue reading to learn more. 

Qualities That You Should Look for in Home Window Replacements

Below, we have listed a few of the qualities that you should look for in your home window replacements, as well as the company helping you find the proper replacements. 

Window Qualities

Energy Efficiency

When you are spending the money to replace the windows in your home, it makes sense to look for windows that will provide you the greatest value — and there is no better way to do so than to buy energy-efficient windows. Energy-efficient windows can retain 25–35% of your home’s heat in the winter and cool air during the summer. 

By purchasing energy-efficient windows that have high-quality insulation, you can protect your home’s envelope — better known as the interior of your home and attic — from losing heat and cooled air. In doing so, your heating and cooling systems will not have to work as hard to maintain the temperature in your home, thus saving you money on your monthly utility bills. 

At WinChoice USA, we manufacture all of our windows using WinChoice USA® INSULATED GLASS SYSTEM. Our energy-efficient, insulated glass is specially designed to keep your home from losing heat in the winter and cool air during the summer. 

Low-Maintenance

If you own an older home, it is more than likely that your current windows were manufactured using a wooden frame. While wooden frames are strong, they require quite a bit of maintenance — requiring you to strip them and repaint them every couple of years to ensure that cracking, warping, and rot do not develop. 

If you are shopping for home window replacements, we strongly recommend that you look for a window that is manufactured using maintenance-free vinyl construction. Vinyl is extra durable and does not require maintenance every couple of years as wooden windows do. 

At WinChoice USA, all of our replacement windows are manufactured using our WinChoice USA® VINYL COMPOUND — an extra-durable compound that is built with the intention of lasting for years on end without needing even the simplest of maintenance. 

Beauty

When shopping around for home window replacements that you can rest assured that will last you a lifetime, it is easy to get caught up in the specifications of the window. That said, if you are purchasing replacement windows for your home that you intend on keeping around for the long-haul, you also want to consider the aesthetic value that the home replacement window brings to the table — after all, if the windows are going to last forever, you want to make sure that you like the way that they look. 

At WinChoice USA, we manufacture a wide selection of high-quality windows that are paired perfectly with aesthetics that are sure to compliment your home. To view our wide selection of windows, we urge you to check out our window gallery

Value

The last, but certainly not least, thing that you should consider when shopping for home window replacements is the value of your purchase. Home window replacement costs can vary greatly depending on the number of windows that you plan to purchase, the size of the windows that you plan to purchase, and the company that you choose to purchase them from. In order to find the best value, be sure to request local window companies to provide you with an accurate quote. 

At WinChoice USA, we go out of our way to foster the best customer experience for each and every one of our customers — and the greatest way that we can do that is to be 100% transparent about the quality of our windows and the estimates that we provide to our customers. If you would like a free home window replacement estimate, we urge you to get in touch with us to request an estimate today.

What to Look for in a Home Window Replacement Company

If you are seriously considering replacing the windows in your home, it is important that you choose a window replacement company that you can trust. At WinChoice USA, we manufacture, sell, and install all of our windows — ensuring you that there is no middleman process and that all of your windows will be installed in compliance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

On top of that, we also offer a Limited Lifetime Manufacturer’s Warranty — because we are 100% confident in the value, efficiency, and durability of our windows.

Our Commitment to Our Customers

As a homeowner, hearing the words “renovation” or “home improvement” is likely enough to make you cringe. While the idea of sprucing up your home might be exciting, the financial burden of a large project is impossible to ignore.

As it is with any home improvement project, shopping for replacement windows has its share of difficulties. You first have to decide what kind of windows you’d like, find a window manufacturer that has those windows, and then schedule window installation with a contracting team. Not to mention that as you do so you are always looking for the best possible deal. So in short, yeah — shopping for replacement windows is difficult. 

At WinChoice USA, we would like to challenge the idea that shopping for replacement windows always has to be a burden. Why? Simply because we have found the solution — a full-service window buying process and unmatched customer service. 

Continue reading to learn more about our commitment to our customers. 

What Sets Us Apart  

As our full-service window company began to grow from our first five employees to our current 5,000 employees, we noticed that there are not many window companies that can take care of you during the entire window replacement process. Instead, we noticed that there were window sellers, window manufacturers, and window installation contractors — forcing homeowners to contact and schedule appointments with three separate companies.  

While the traditional model of window replacement worked for homeowners, it was a long and painful process. In fact, people knew that it would be a long, stressful process before they contacted the window seller, but at the time, it was their only option. And that is exactly why we decided to make Winchoice USA different. 

When you get in touch with a member of our team, you can rest easy knowing that we will be there with you during every step of the window buying process. Rather than getting the windows that we sell from a manufacturer to flip, we manufacture our own windows right here in the United States. So when you speak with a member of our sales department, you can rest easy knowing that we aren’t peddling a cheap product. 

But we don’t stop with sales like other regional window sales companies. Rather than dropping your windows off and moving on like other companies, we have our own window installation contractors — meaning that the transition from sales to installation is seamless. And the best part is, once they are installed, you won’t have to worry about replacing your windows again for years to come.

Let Us Help You With Your Next Window Needs

If you need replacement windows or windows for new construction, we urge you to get in touch with a member of our team today. Serving the Southeastern United States, our team is here to make sure that your window shopping experience is easy, affordable, and leaves you with a smile.

The Advantage of Full-Frame Window Replacement

If you are a homeowner, window replacement might be something that has crossed your mind. Whether you have just moved to a new home and would like to update the windows or if it is simply time to replace the windows in your current home, WinChoice USA is here to help. 

As the premier replacement window manufacturer, seller, and installer in the Southeastern United States, WinChoice USA is your one-stop-shop for all things window-related. 

So you are looking into replacement windows. Should you go with a standard window replacement or a full-frame window replacement? Continue reading below to learn more. 

Full-Frame Window Replacements vs. Standard Replacements

Before we can begin to discuss which window replacement would work best for your home, it is important to understand the difference between the two methods of replacement. That said, if you stay up to date with the WinChoice USA blog, you may have heard us talk about the two window replacement styles before. 

Most often, when we are discussing these two styles of window replacements, we refer to the windows as replacement windows and new construction windows — with new construction windows being full-frame window replacements. New construction windows and full-frame window replacements are the same type of window used in two different situations. In new construction, the window is mounted to the wooden infrastructure of the wall while the home is being built. When used in a standard window replacement situation, new construction windows become known as full-frame replacement windows because the frame of the old window must be removed so that the replacement windows can be installed just as they would be in a new construction build.

The Case for Standard Window Replacement

While we fully advocate for full-frame replacements, we do believe that standard window replacements can sometimes be the best option. For one, standard window replacement is more affordable than full-frame window replacements because the installation process is less intensive. In addition to having a less intensive installation process, the material cost of the windows will also be lower — as the windows are made smaller so they can be mounted on the interior of the existing window frame. In short, standard window replacements can prove to be beneficial in some situations. 

If you have any questions about standard window replacements and would like to discuss the logistics with a member of our sales team, contact us today. 

Why Choose Full-Frame Replacement Windows

Before we begin advocating for full-frame replacement windows, we want to point out that while they are more expensive, they add greater value to your home in the long run. So when you are looking at the two window replacement options, consider the installation of full-frame windows as an investment. But why does our window replacement and installation team recommended full-frame window replacements?

Efficiency

If you are looking for window replacements that are energy-efficient, we always suggest that you choose full-frame window replacements. In standard window replacement, the new window is mounted directly to the frame of the existing window. When this is done, there is an increased risk of airflow and energy loss in your home as there are now two critical seals along the exterior of the window — the seal between the old frame and the wall and the seal between the old frame and the new frame. 

Aesthetics

If there is one reason that you should always consider full-frame replacement windows it is because of their aesthetic value. When you have full-frame replacement windows installed, you don’t have to sacrifice any windowpane surface area. 

When a standard window is mounted within the frame of another existing window frame, the surface area of the pane is significantly decreased as the window must be manufactured to a smaller scale. 

Durability

When it comes to having a durable, long-lasting replacement window installers, there are no options better than full-frame window replacements. Due to the installation method, you can rest easy knowing that your windows are secured in a low-risk way that increases energy efficiency and protects your home. 

Standard replacement windows, if damaged or improperly installed, can lead to future home damages that could otherwise be unavoidable. Full-frame window installation allows the installation team to firmly seal and secure the replacement windows in a way that will last for years to come.

How to Tell If You Need Replacement Windows

Are your windows damaged? Yes. Do you need new windows? Probably. 

When it comes to major home improvements like window replacements, it can be difficult to determine when the right time to take action is. On one hand, you don’t want to have faulty windows, and on the other hand, if your windows are still in decent enough condition, you’ll likely want to avoid the expense of window replacement. 

Determining whether or not you need new windows is not an easy task — unless the damages to your window are as obvious as the neighborhood kid’s baseball sitting on the carpet beneath the windowsill. Because it can be difficult to diagnose the extent of most window damages, our team at WinChoice USA offers free window inspections with each in-home presentation. So if you suspect that your windows might be damaged, be sure to schedule a consultation with a member of our team today. 

Below, we have outlined a few of the telltale signs that you might want to consider window replacement. 

Outside Noise

When you are sitting in your house, it might be normal to hear cars and pedestrians walking by. That said, if you can hear every word that the pedestrians are saying or the rattling muffler of the car as it drives past, there could be an issue with your windows. 

When a window is installed, it is meant to be a barrier between the indoors and the outdoors. If excess sound is making it through the shut window, it is a sign that the window sealant has failed or that the window was installed improperly. In some cases windows allowing sound to pass through can be fixed, but if the window was installed incorrectly, it is more than likely that window replacement will be necessary. 

Drafts

Another telltale sign that your window seal has failed or that a window has been installed incorrectly is if you can feel air passing through the window. Drafty windows are more than just a nuisance — they are also a utilities drain. 

When you have drafty windows, up to 30% of the energy used to heat and cool your home is lost. Sometimes drafts can be remedied by applying more sealant to the outside of the windows. Other times, however, windows can’t be fixed and will require replacement.  

Water Damage & Active Rot

One of the more obvious window damages that you might notice is the presence of water damage or active rot caused by water damage. If a window seal is damaged for a long period of time without being repaired, water can actually get inside the wooden frame of your window. If the window saturation goes unnoticed, it can lead to rot. 

If you see water damage on a window, it is important that you investigate the extent of the damages right away. If you don’t limit the damages caused by the rot, it could spread to the wooden supports in your wall.

Difficulty Opening, Closing, & Locking

Everyone has experienced a stuck window in their life. No matter how hard you push down or pull up the window it resists. And when you finally do get it to move, it makes a loud creaking noise. 

When a window is stuck, it is usually a result of exposure to moisture — whether it was past exposure or constant exposure. Past exposure can lead to the metal components rusting and window frame warping — thus making it harder to open and close. Current, prolonged exposure can lead to active window rot. So if your window is difficult to open, close, and lock, it is a surefire sign that it is damaged. 

Condensation Build-Up 

Above, we discussed how improper window seals can lead to drafts and excess noise. Similar to the window frame, the window panes can also become damaged if improperly sealed. The two panes of a window are used to act as a thermal barrier. If the outer seal is broken, so is the barrier. 

When the outer seal of a window pane is broken, it can allow condensation to build up. When moisture begins to accumulate, it negates the energy efficiency of the window while also restricting your ability to look through it.
