Home / Blog / Window Quality and Affordability: Your Guide to Finding the Perfect Balance

Usually homeowners want the highest quality for the lowest price. But it’s not always so simple, especially when it comes to home renovations, where not every window stands the test of time.

With each dollar we pour into upgrading our homes, we want to see it result in high value. These welcome additions should not only look awesome and do their job, but they should also stick around for the long haul—without you having to sink endless money into it.

The right windows are durable and cost-effective, and they exist. Let’s explore window quality and affordability and guide you in the right direction for your next home renovation.

The Long-Term Cost of Window Quality and Affordability

Cutting corners might seem like a real money-saver at first, but cheap windows will have you spending more on repairs and replacements in the long run. Risking issues, like your window not operating correctly or forming a solid seal, which could cause indefinite upkeep on something that should last for years.

When you buy a quality window that’s built to last, you’re getting something that will save you time and money in the long run. Cheap windows take you down a road of unexpected costs and maintenance appointments that you can do without.

Instead of saving money at face value, make an informed purchasing decision with a company you can trust.

Pella’s high-quality windows are crafted with premium wood, fiberglass, and vinyl materials. All our windows go the distance and are built to withstand the elements.

Make Your Home More Energy Efficient

Let’s talk about comfort. Everyone’s idea of it is different, but most homeowners want to make their homes feel as comfy as possible—while also sticking to a budget. What if you could relax more, knowing that your home’s energy efficiency is on point?

Whether it’s through the warm glow of natural light rippling through the room or the fresh air ventilating your home, quality windows make your home feel “homier” in more ways than one. But on another level, the quality of your window directly affects your indoor comfort based on how well it insulates your home during winter and cools your home during those summer months.

If you have windows that aren’t sealing or aren’t installed properly, it’s going to cost you more to heat or cool your home, as energy escapes through the cracks of those ineffective windows. Don’t risk spending more money on energy bills or window repairs when you can get a quality window from the start.

For added protection, you can opt for specialty glass on your new windows designed for low-emissivity (Low-E). Low-E helps keep the heat inside during winter and outside during the summer, which can be a total game-changer if your current setup isn’t cutting it.

Pella has four different Low-E Glass options, including our AdvancedComfort Low-E Insulating Glass and Advanced Low-E Insulating Glass, which we recommend for our Omaha and Lincoln residents. All our Low-E glass products come in dual-pane or triple-pane designs.

Being able to relax during the day and sleep through the night is invaluable. But those of us living in the heart of the city are intimately familiar with the medley of cars, sirens, and construction sounding off at any given hour.

Having windows with superior sound insulation means that you can minimize outside disturbances, even if your home is in a busy area.

Pella’s noise-reducing glass for windows can help. With our STC (sound transmission class) sound glass, your new windows can dampen outdoor sources so you can relax.

Our noise-reducing glass is available on all dual- and triple-pane windows.
