Deciding how to choose the right replacement window company to install your new windows may be one of the biggest home improvement decisions you will ever make. New, quality replacement windows are very important and can save you money on heating and air conditioning bills and modernize your house and improve the quality/value of your home.
Choose The Right Replacement Window Company to Save $$
Do you have high energy bills? Do you have drafty windows or windows that ice/freeze over in the winter? Is air seeping out when your air conditioning is on in the summer? Are they hard to open? Then it’s a good time to consider replacement windows. In most cases, over time, replacement windows more than pay for themselves with lower heating and cooling bills. In fact, replacement windows provide one of the best return on investments of any home remodeling project.
But choosing the right company to install your replacement windows is no easy decision. The professionals at Minnesota Roof Contractors, a locally owned and operated company that serves the entire Twin Cities and Greater Metro area, understands what you’re dealing with. In fact, Mark Gerber, our founder and President, knows exactly what questions people have when searching for replacement window contractors, because he answers them on a regular basis as a frequent guest on the WCCO AM 830 Real Estate Radio Hour show and by appearing on The Patriot AM 1280 show All Things Real Estate.
