Window FAQ's from Krumm Siding & Roofing
What kind of windows do you recommend?
Vinyl windows. They are energy efficient, look good, and are easy to maintain. And because they are so durable, they are backed by outstanding warranties.
We give you a choice of 3 best quality manufacturers. Simonton windows are proven elite quality – they have rated highest in their category from JD Power for 4 straight years. We also carry Grandura, one of the most respected exterior home product companies in the nation. Grandura is a particularly good choice for those who want to “go green.” Another outstanding choice is Alside windows. These are superior vinyl windows with a great warranty.
I’ve seen windows advertised for under $200. Are your prices that good?
No. And chances are you won’t get that price when you sit down and talk with whoever advertised that price. A lot of times this is the classic “bait and switch” – they know installing a window of that poor quality is not practical, so they immediately try to sell you on an upgrade. And if they do sell you that window, it will cost you so much in higher energy bills that it is no bargain at all.
We never play those games. We offer superior quality windows at a reasonable prices. We install it perfectly and give you an outstanding warranty in writing. No gimmicks. Just honest work at a fair price.
There are so many window companies out there, so many prices, so many options. How can I know what window I should get?
The best way to figure this out is to start with what you want. A good question to ask yourself is: why you are considering replacing your old windows?
Do they stick all the time? Are you sick of climbing ladders to paint? Is your home uncomfortably cold in the winter near your windows? Does your windows appearance bother you?
Whatever the answers to these questions will point you in the right direction toward what you do want and what is most important to you.
To select the right contractor, take it one step at a time. Research companies online, talk to them on the phone, and then meet with the ones you like. Make sure they’re honest and dependable, and you’re on your way to getting the best windows for you.
