Welcome to “As the Window Turns.”
It’s another exciting episode.
To catch you up to speed, you can read all about where we started here.
Here’s the second chapter about eight mistakes not to make when buying windows.
And in today’s installment, I went all old school and visited the local window store.
Someone mentioned visiting the store in the first round of advice I got about selecting windows….
….and whoever said it was brilliant.
Pat yourself on the back.
There’s something about seeing the windows and the features that makes all the difference. Being there and seeing first-hand all of the window options and all of the features, helped me make all of my window decisions.
For example, it cemented the fact that I wanted double-hung windows with the tilt feature.
When I saw them in person, I am officially clearing my calendar to clean them at least once a week because it was so easy.
And I love the attachment on the window frame itself that allows you to safely open the windows just a little and holds them in place.
I also saw the color selection of the windows in person and the different grid options (even though I’m not choosing grids).
I learned that the white and beige color options are the most cost-efficient and I was so happy I decided to go with white.
I’ll be sure and drop it in conversation to my husband how much money the white windows are saving.
Lauren, the manager, demonstrated the energy efficiency with the heat lamp and the difference types of glass.
You could actually feel the difference.
But why read all about it or listen to me describe it or imagine what it was like visiting the store, when you can actually see my trip.
Here’s a quick video I made of the trip and my discussion with Lauren on all things window.
It’s sure to be our highest-rated episode yet.
I’ll be back next month with the next step in the process, but in the meantime I have to go.
I want to make sure the networks know my number. 🙂
