This makes sense, of course, because your home is where you spend quite a bit of time. It’s where you wake up and enjoy breakfast with your family. It’s where you enjoy some rest in the backyard.

If you’d like to get a few helpful ideas for improving your home, keep reading to learn more.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Because all of our windows are custom-made for your needs, it’s a breeze to find the perfect style of window for you.

From calming whites and grays to blues and greens that stand out, we can help you find the perfect color. No matter what you’re looking for to boost your home’s curb appeal, color plays an important part, and that’s why we’re proud to customize replacement window colors to meet your needs.

Upgrade Your Home With Energy Efficient Windows

Functionality

Although the primary concern is curb appeal, you should also think about the way your windows function and how they can meet your needs. For example, windows that give a cool cross breeze can make a huge difference, and if you’re considering selling your home, the way the windows function can work together with your home’s curb appeal to be very appealing to potential buyers.

Bonus Benefit: Energy Efficiency

Another huge benefit of having new windows installed is that your home becomes much more energy efficient, saving you money on your monthly bills and keeping the weather outside where it belongs. At the end of the day, lower energy bills means a more appealing home for everyone. It doesn’t get much better than that!

The 5 Essentials of Window Value

So it is time for you to look for replacement windows — it should be easy, right?

When it comes to shopping for replacement windows, most homeowners are a little rusty. After all, it has likely been years, possibly decades, since most people last shopped for replacement windows. Because of this, there are new window technologies and new features that replacement windows have that you might not be aware of. 

At WinChoice USA, we manufacture, sell, and install high-quality, long-lasting windows. Because we understand that it has likely been years since you last had to shop for windows, we thought that we might share some of the essential things that you should look for in a window. Continue reading to learn more. 

Aesthetics/Appearance

While windows have changed in the past decade, one thing remains the same — you have to like how they look. There are many window designs, functions, and features that should be considered when choosing new replacement windows for your home. 

When you are choosing replacement windows, always choose windows that fit the current look of your home. At WinChoice USA, we have a variety of replacement window options so that you can match the glass, frames, and hardware finishes with the current look and style of your home. 

Function

Next, consider the function of each window that you will be replacing. Do you open certain windows more than others? Do you need a window that is easy to clean? Do your windows face the road and need to dampen road noise? All of these questions and more can determine what window is best suited to replace your current ones. 

Cost/Value

Window replacement, like most home renovations, is usually a costly project. As a homeowner, it can be difficult to justify spending a large amount of money on a window replacement project. That said, you shouldn’t sacrifice window quality for a reduced price just because you want to avoid a large bill. Instead, it is important to find the perfect balance between quality and cost. 

Energy Efficiency

If it has been a decade since you last replaced your windows, you might not be familiar with the benefits of energy-efficient windows. In recent years, technology like Low-E glass and insulated window frames have become more efficient and less costly — meaning that there is no reason that your next replacement windows shouldn’t be energy efficient. 

Security

Last, but certainly not least, it is important that you find replacement windows with adequate security features. While most people think of window security as being a window with a functional lock, window security also means security from the elements. Impact-resistant windows both add to the security of keeping people with poor intentions out of your home while also protecting your home from elements such as heavy, sustained winds.

Window Maintenance 101: Tips From Your Local Replacement Windows Company

When you decide to invest in new windows, you do so with the expectation that they will last for another 20 years before needing replacement again. Sadly, not all windows will end up lasting as long as they are marketed. 

When it comes to the lifetime of a window, two factors will determine how long the window will last. First, it is important that you purchase your windows from a trusted manufacturer like us, here at WinChoice USA. Second, you’ll want to take good care of the windows for the years to come — because, with a little work, you might be able to make your windows last longer than 20 years without developing any issues or weaknesses.

At WinChoice USA, we provide the Southeastern United States with high-quality replacement windows and window installation services. As a leader in the window industry, we thought that we might share with you some of the most basic ways that you can care for your new windows and maximize their longevity. Continue reading to learn more. 

Clean, Clean, & Clean

The best way to ensure that your windows will last for the years to come is to clean them thoroughly and often. Not only is cleaning your windows a great way to benefit the aesthetics of your home, but it is also a great way to prevent grime and gunk from building up and negatively affecting the performance of your window. 

When you are cleaning your windows it is incredibly important that you avoid using abrasive cleaning products and scrubbing tools. Abrasive products can create minor scratches on the surface of glass, vinyl, and wood — causing them to deteriorate faster. 

Be Mindful of Film & Coating

If you are considering shopping around for replacement windows, we strongly suggest that you consider looking at energy-efficient options. Energy-efficient windows are coated in a thin, unnoticeable coating or film that reflects a significant amount of radiant heat — thus keeping conditioned air in and outdoor air out. 

Over time it is possible for coating and films to be damaged as a result of general wear and tear or improper cleaning. If the coating or film is damaged, the efficiency of the window significantly decreases. So make sure you clean your windows correctly and contact a window repair contractor if you notice damages. 

Clean Your Window Tracks

When people think of issues that they’ve had with their past windows, they usually think of the aggravating difficulty that they had opening and closing them. Luckily, this issue is completely avoidable. The most common cause of windows that are difficult to open and close is the presence of water or dirt in the window tracks. If water sits in the track of a wooden window, it can cause warping. If dirt and other debris are in the track, it can cause the track to get stuck or hung up on itself. 

Cleaning window tracks is incredibly easy — and you don’t even have to do it all that often to prevent future damages. For water, simply soak it up using a sponge, towel, or cloth. For dirt and debris, use a dry brush to remove the buildup from the track.
