Why Buy Windows from a Local Company?

Big-box stores offer great prices and can be a convenient way to shop for many different home improvement products. Replacement windows, though, aren’t one of them. While you may find a window bargain or two at a mega-warehouse, you still need skilled professionals to install them and trained technicians to repair them if something goes wrong down the road.

When you buy replacement windows from a local distribution company, you typically pay less than “factory direct” and get all the benefits of professional installation along with best-in-the-business warranties.

Benefits of Buying Replacement Windows From a Local Dealer

There are many reasons it makes sense to buy your new replacement windows from a local window installer instead of a big-box store. Here are just a few of them.

Better Selection

Because they offer so many types of products, big-box stores don’t always have a large selection of the products they sell. That’s particularly true when it comes to oversized items. They might have an aisle or two of windows, but that doesn’t come close to the number of options you get from a local supplier specializing in windows. At a big-box store, you’re also limited in your choice of grid styles, frame colors, screen types, hardware, locking mechanisms, and other features like windows that open or tilt out.

Greater Freedom of Choice

Big-box stores have warehouses filled with windows that have already been manufactured. When you buy from a small, local firm, you can choose from windows manufactured by leading brands like Marvin, JELD-WEN, Ply Gem, Simonton, and Sprouse Windows & Doors, and they’re built to your specifications. Instead of having to choose from what’s available, you get to choose the style, materials, and features you want.

Specialized Staff

The staff at your local big-box store might be friendly and helpful, but it’s unlikely the person you’re talking to in the window aisle is an expert in the industry. That makes it pretty frustrating when you can’t get your questions answered, or your needs met. You also won’t find professional installers on staff, either. They may say they offer installation, but the job is usually contracted out to a third party who wasn’t involved in your purchase. The store where you bought the windows won’t be held responsible if the installer doesn’t do a good job. A local dealer offers the knowledge, installation expertise, and personalized service you need for a high-quality window replacement.

Non-Competitive Prices

What at first glance looks like a real bargain more often than not ends up costing you more when you purchase replacement windows from a big-box store. That’s because established window manufacturers and installers have longtime relationships that enable them to offer better deals on their products and services.
