How to choose a plastic window? – Choosing the right window
Choosing plastic windows, notice, then windows have not only an aesthetic role. Most of the windows and windows are located. Not for nothing PVC windows are also called plastic windows. New PVC windows not only create an impression of the building but must also be responsible for its safety.
Choosing company-manufacturer of PVC windows, what is important?
The term of the company’s presence in the window market.
As a rule, the first three years are the most important for the company. Even during the first year, a company will manifest itself as a quality manufacturer or leave the market.
The number of showrooms
The wider the network of the company’s window shops, the more likely, as they say, that the company has come for a long time and will not allow reducing its reputation.
It means, that every customer is important as a source of positive emotions and further recommendations.
Is a company a manufacturer or only a dealer?
As a rule, a manufacturer has more powerful service and delivery departments, and also a supply service. Therefore, the speed and quality of response to possible complaints from him are much higher.
Availability of product samples in the window showroom
Try not to order PVC windows in shops, there are no full-fledged samples of windows. If a company doesn’t invest money in full-fledged samples of PVC windows in the shop, will it invest money in fixing all the issues that may occur during the execution of your order?
Responses about company
As a rule, successful companies have albums with photos of completed orders shown on the website. Try to view such a reference page and photo gallery. Responses about the company are better to read on the Internet. If the company doesn’t have a website, maybe they don’t have anything at all?
Type of profile used
There is a huge amount of poor-quality, weak, flexible profiles on the market, with a small number of chambers, with weak metal or no metal inside at all.
Read on the Internet about the profile that the supplier offers you.
We use the German profile GEALAN, a world famous brand, one of the best profiles on the market, with 6-chambers. Moreover we’re using 1.5mm and 2mm thick metal inside the frame, depending on the window.
Make sure the window manufacturer uses mechanisms from well-known brands.
Our company, for example, uses the mechanisms of Siegenia Aubi (www.siegenia.com), it is a world famous German brand.
In accordance to the standard, for manufacturing of double-glazed windows it is allowed to use glass not thinner than 4 mm and marks not lower than M1. You cannot determine the mark of the glazing, it can be achieved only by laboratory methods. But you can check its thickness! Ask workers to show the glass from any window and measure glass with a ruler. Make sure that it is not thinner than 4 mm! There have been cases (especially with cheap windows) when thickness of the glass was only 3 mm. Again, saving on a standard PVC window is about 100 NOK.
