Does Brand Really Matter When Buying Windows?

This entry was posted in Windows and Doors on .

When choosing high quality windows for your home, it’s important to consider factors such as budget, window style and efficiency ratings. Another thing you don’t want to overlook is the brand. Yes – the brand of windows you purchase makes a difference.

There is fierce competition among window manufacturers, and they use different metrics to rate their windows, so finding a reputable window company can be a difficult process. Plus, there can be a big price difference between a name-brand window and an off-brand window. So how do you know if it’s really worth it?

Let’s learn more about why brand name matters when it comes to new and replacement windows in Arizona.

Why Brand Name Matters When Buying Windows

Do you really need to look for brand-name window companies or can you look at smaller, regional brands? Branding does matter because there are hundreds of window companies, and the industry is fragmented. This means that there are many window companies that compete and there is no single brand that dominates.

By choosing an older, well-established brand, you can expect a certain minimum of quality. Established businesses have made a name for themselves by offering consistent products for many years. And, if anything fails with the product, warranties are in place to cover the purchase. This is critical as the homeowner making the investment.

Off-brand window companies may not have the same mechanisms in place. You could invest thousands of dollars into new windows, only to find that the company no longer exists a few years down the line. Or, the business may not honor their warranty when you need it.
