The right windows and doors can transform spaces in your home and moments in your life.

But shopping for windows and doors isn’t something people do every day.

Whether this is your first replacement project or you’ve done this before, here are some things to keep in mind as you start the shopping process.

Inspiration is everywhere — you just need to know where to look.

Sites like Houzz and Pinterest are filled with beautiful photos from homeowners, designers and manufacturers.

Collect photos of rooms that reflect your personal taste.

Also — friends, family and neighbors may be a source of inspiration and advice.

“It was easy, and now it’s made the house so comfortable…”

Visit a home improvement store, a window and door showroom, or a local home show to see and operate various window and door styles to help narrow down your choices.

Replacing windows and doors is an investment that can pay back over time.

Like lowering your heating and cooling costs and increasing your home’s safety and security.

New windows and doors can also increase the value and curb appeal of your home, decrease outside noise and make cleaning easier.

Prioritizing the benefits you value most can help steer you toward the right window or door for your home.

Once you’ve gathered information, it’s time to talk to an expert.

"I have a lot of things to show you today. Things I think you’re really going to love…"

Whether you do it yourself, hire a contractor or work directly with the manufacturer, it’s important to get the information you need to get your questions answered and review the details necessary to get a more accurate price quote.

Shopping for the right window and door starts with finding the best options to fit your home, lifestyle and budget.

Once you know where to look, you can start creating a space you’ll enjoy for years to come.
