Windows have come a long way in recent years as far as technology is concerned. In the past, windows basically consisted of a wooden frame, a single sheet of glass, and a rudimentary device for opening and closing the window. Now, you have to educate yourself on things like glazing systems, insulated gas units, and various frame options in order to make an informed decision on replacement windows. In addition, there are terms like “Solar Heat Gain Coefficient” and “U-Factor” that mean nothing to the average consumer, but are important to understanding how energy efficient a replacement window is (or isn’t).
If you’re like most homeowners, buying replacement windows for your home is foreign territory. You likely have never done it before and have no idea where to start. You want to make an informed decision, since replacement windows can be a substantial investment in your home, but how do you know which windows are a good value or which replacement window company you should go with?
Fortunately for homeowners, one San Diego replacement window company, BM Windows, has decided to help by producing resources that can help homeowners learn more about replacement windows and take some confusion out of the replacement window buying process.
BM Windows owner and replacement window industry veteran Michal Bohm has authored two e-books that he offers as free downloads on his San Diego company’s website.
The first is titled Investing in Your Home: Replacement Windows and Doors. This e-book is for homeowners who are in the beginning stages of considering window replacement. They’re wondering if it’s even worth the cost to replace their windows. Will new windows increase their home’s value or help lower their energy bills? The e-book answers these questions and addresses other factors to consider in your decision of whether or not to replace your windows, such as safety, curb appeal, and the livability of your home.
The second e-book written by Bohm is called A Homeowner’s Guide to Replacement Windows. The title perfectly describes what you’ll find in this e-book—a step-by-step guide that will walk you through the entire process of buying replacement windows. It addresses common mistakes made by uninformed homeowners and how to avoid them. It helps homeowners figure out what to look for in a replacement window company and how to compare the estimates they receive from various companies.
Buying replacement windows can be confusing and overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be! Educate yourself on the details and process of window replacement, and you’ll likely be much happier with your purchase in the long run!
Both of the e-books written by Michal Bohm were published by Founder Nonfiction (formerly Maven Publishing USA) and are available as free downloads on the BM Windows website.
