When you become a homeowner—especially the owner of a home that could be considered a fixer-upper—you can start to become excited about things that you never gave a second thought to before. You start going to home improvement stores on the weekends just for fun, or you begin obsessing about flooring and countertop materials. You agonize over paint samples with the same intensity you used when choosing the name of your first child.
Before owning a home of your own, you probably never even considered a home’s windows, but now that you’re a homeowner, you might start to notice that certain windows don’t open and close very easily, while others are drafty. You worry about how much energy you are using to heat and cool your home, while, at the same time, your windows are letting in the heat and cold from outside.
At some point, you will realize that it’s time to consider installing replacement windows in your Carlsbad home. Then, you’ll have to start thinking about what brand of replacement windows you should purchase and who you will hire to install them. Fortunately, there are one-stop-shops in Carlsbad that will sell you windows and also install them. These window companies, like BM Windows, specialize in replacement windows and provide professional installation using highly trained installers.
Professional installation should be a top consideration when purchasing replacement windows for your Carlsbad home because improper installation can cause all kinds of problems. Over time, your windows won’t perform as well as they should. They might become difficult to open and close, or they won’t be as energy efficient as you had hoped. In addition, if you ever have to make a warranty claim with the manufacturer, the repair may not be covered if it is determined that your windows were improperly installed.
Purchasing high-quality windows should also be a priority for Carlsbad homeowners. The good news is that you can often find high-quality windows at competitive prices. You just have to look beyond the “household name” brands. Michal Bohm, owner of BM Windows, says, “Some of the best replacement window brands out there are ones that most homeowners have never heard of. That’s because the manufacturers don’t spend a ton of money on advertising to homeowners or getting their products in retail stores. Instead, they focus on making quality products, which they sell through authorized dealers like us. This helps them keep their prices affordable for the average homeowner.”
According to Bohm, a couple of replacement window brands to consider are Anlin Windows and Doors and Monte Verde Windows & Doors. Both of these brands are made specifically for sunny, mild climates like Carlsbad’s and do a great job of keeping homes cool in the summer and warm in the winter. They also have great sound suppression technology built into their products. You can find both of these brands at BM Windows, which services Carlsbad and the surrounding areas.
