5 Myths About Window Replacement Debunked

BLOG Posts

In the age of the internet, it’s only natural to turn to web browsers when we encounter a problem. We find ourselves searching for answers from strangers on the other end of a screen.

“What do my symptoms mean?”

“Where is the best restaurant in my town?”

“How do I know if I should replace my windows?”

But what we often tend to forget is that the information we find isn’t always accurate. While there may be some truth or experience behind those answers, there’s always a professional who can answer your questions in better detail.

At Legend Windows, our professional window installation team is here to debunk the myths and rumors you may have heard about window replacement. Let’s take a closer look at some common misconceptions surrounding replacing your windows and the truth behind them. 

Myth #1: All Window Replacements Are the Same

This is one of the most common misconceptions when it comes to window replacements. A majority of homeowners think that all windows are essentially the same when in contrast, they couldn’t be more different from one another. Each window available on the market offers its own features and benefits—better insulation, noise reduction, enhanced durability, and more—equally adding value, protection, and curb appeal to your home.

At Legend Windows, we offer a variety of window options, including:

When you replace your windows with Legend Windows, we offer a customized solution to allow natural light to enter your home while staying within your budget. At Legend Windows, no two window replacements are the same.

Myth #2: DIY Window Replacement is Easier & Cheaper

We understand the love for DIY projects and the ability to look at completed work to say, “I did that.” But when it comes to window replacements, it’s important to leave it to the professionals. While our team appreciates the ambition to tackle window replacements on your own, this type of work requires specialized knowledge and skill.

If window replacement isn’t completed properly, it can lead to poor insulation, leaks, and other concerning issues in the future. Additionally, DIY window replacement can void the warranty of the products, leaving you without coverage. When it comes to window replacement, leave the installation to the professionals.

Myth #3: Windows Don’t Need to Be Replaced Unless They’re Broken

You know the old saying, “If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.” But when it comes to windows, just because they aren’t physically damaged doesn’t mean they’re working to their fullest potential. Old windows can pose threats to your home, even if the glass isn’t shattered and the locks aren’t broken. If you’re experiencing higher-than-normal energy bills, wind whistling through at night, and raindrops pooling inside the window pane, you may be in need of a window replacement.

Myth #4: Window Warranties Aren’t Important

This is one myth you should absolutely not believe about window replacement. Warranties cover defects and any other issues with your windows, ensuring you’re not left to spend hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars to repair or replace your windows.

At Legend Windows, we believe protecting your property well into the future is important. For this reason, we offer an all-inclusive transferable limited lifetime warranty for our window installations and replacements. On top of our warranty, we offer a fuel savings pledge—if you don’t save at least 35% or more on your fuel bill, we’ll pay the difference.

Myth #5: Replacing Windows is a Disruptive Process

This myth couldn’t be further from the truth. While window replacement is not always an easy or quick process, it is a well-organized process. Our professionals install your replacement windows with as much respect to your home as our own. We clean up after ourselves, minimize the mess, and work during days and times that are best suited to your schedule.
