Typically, 5 Star Construction offers the following window manufacturers to our customers looking to replace windows:
At 5 Star Construction, we view ourselves as ‘brokers’ in the window business. We don’t offer one brand or one style to our homeowners. We will give our clients the manufacturer they request or we will suggest what we believe will work best for their application. In our appraisal of your project might offer Pella or Anderson or Woodright widows.
We explain the difference in affordability, function, and value. The best window is the one that works best for you. When a customer presents us a budget we give that customer the best bang for their buck. We offer the best window we possibly can for that amount of money.
We work the same way with our clients who are looking to install siding or a deck or flooring, gutters or concrete.
Our attention is to whatever the customer wants. At 5 Star we won’t tell you we have ‘the best product’. We will offer you the best product for your situation.
There are several indicators that a home needs new windows:
- the sill plates are broken
- there is fog between the glass
- the sill nose is rotted
- curtains blowing around the windows
- noticeable water or moisture around the window pane
We can install new flashing around the windows. We also replace wood rot. There are several types of windows to choose from:
- wrap windows
- vinyl brick molds
- full composite window systems
We don’t think triple pane is necessary and we believe it is overkill.
If you have a home office and you replace windows, a portion of your home improvements are tax deductible. Remember to keep track of the receipts warranties to go with it.
Let’s say you your home needs new windows. The fact is, there are many window manufacturers you can choose. when we work with you, we want to know one of two things: do you care what your windows look like, or do you need to replace them due to wear and tear?
Looking at or through the window
A customer’s main focus is either looking through the window or looking at the window. If how the window looks is more important to you than how the window functions, chances are you are paying more attention to the finish, the trim, the welds, the joints and the grids in the glass. You’re looking at the detailing of the screen. In the end, your main focus is on ‘how’ the windows look in your home.
A customer whose main interest is to look through the window primarily wants to know what the pricing options are. And we will show this customer the most economical way to get new windows installed. We think both of these customers are important.
All of our customers receive 5 Star service
Both kinds of customers are important to us. One customer is not better than the other for our business. Making sure we get you the windows you want, that is our main priority.
We work with customers in the same way who are interested in remodeling or installing a new deck or doors or flooring. We help our customers in their decision making by knowing what is most important to them.
A client that is most interested in how the carpet looks, and the texture and the feel of the carpet on bare feet, may be more inclined to buy designer carpet and a thicker, plush pad.
A client looking to replace carpet for a rental property may be looking to purchase carpet at an economic price. We try to understand each job in such a way that it benefits your specific needs.
The products we offer are tailored to you. A customer with a strict budget who wants a new deck is going to want a wood deck. The deck is going to be fundamental, and nothing fancy, but it will definitely
do the job.
If a client’s primary purpose is the look at the deck, then that client may opt for cedar wrapping, black balusters, stair and deck lighting, and a composite floor. There are many options available for a new deck. We will recommend deck options depending on customer wants and needs, the intended final look and the budget for the project.
It helps us to classify projects in such a way that we serve the best interest of the customer no matter what the project or the budget.
Details in the appearance and amenities can add to the experience of being on the deck. But just as important is a deck that will function as a deck.
How the window looks and functions
In working with couples, we have discovered that each member of the house is different, so we look to find that common ground between looking good and coming in at budget, so both are comfortable. At 5 Star, we don’t view our job as trying to sell you what we believe is the next best thing since sliced bread. In truth, we don’t care what the latest and greatest products out there are. We think it’s our job to offer the products that work best for you and your situation.
If we were to say to clients, ” we have this one window and it is the best window ever, and it’s two thousand dollars each” We wouldn’t be serving our client’s best interest unless the client indicates they want the most expensive window on the market today.
We know our customers are going to spend somewhere between three-hundred-dollars and a $2,000 for a window. We believe we serve our customers best when we listen and pay attention to what they want. In doing so we tailor what we offer to our clients.
That same philosophy applies to the installers we assign to a project. If we have a client looking for detail, we make sure the installer we put on that job is great at the detail work. If a customer’s goals it to get the job done fast and done right, we assign an installer to the project who can meet those needs specifically.
We replace windows by listening to our customers and providing them with the best brand of a window for them. We don’t sell our customers anything. We know we do best by our clients by offering them the best products for their goals. Whatever that is. Every customer is a 5 Star customer to us and deserves 5 Star service, no matter what the budget.
