How Can Zen Windows Give You An Accurate Quote Without Going To Your Home?
When you talk about replacement windows, this is one of the times that you can say, “Size doesn’t matter.” Well, not that much anyway.
The largest expense involved in manufacturing windows in the factory is not the materials. Each window is custom made. However, all replacement windows require the same number of steps in setting up the jig, the same number of components, the same number of welds, etc. These things don’t change in any way based on the size of the window being made.
As far as the materials needed to make a window that’s 9 sq. ft or 12 sq. ft. in size, there won’t be that much of a difference in the cost of the glass or vinyl. To be exact, we’re only looking at a $6 difference. When you compare that to the cost of a window, you’ll know that it’s not something that we at Zen Windows Houston will lose sleep over. But, there’s a point where it does make a little more difference and that would be windows that are larger than 17 sq. ft. (101 unified inches, e.g. 41″ X 60″ = 101″). This is why we’ll ask you for the size of your largest window and how many windows are of that size or close to it. However, even if we get the computations wrong, we won’t end up with a death sentence that’s going to put us into a state of bankruptcy.
To make the answer simple, replacement windows really aren’t that complicated and the tolerances for giving an estimate that both of us can live with won’t require a visit to your house just so we can give you an accurate quote.
