Windows from Wilson’s Home Improvement vs Big Box Store Windows

When big box stores like Home Depot and Lowes opened its doors to Americans all over the US, it drove small hardware and home improvement shops out of business. Why? Because they simply could not compete with their prices and selection. However, what does Wilson’s Home Improvement have that big box stores don't? Employees who truly know the products and care to help you and installation protocol to make sure you get the best of the best for less. The window industry has always consisted of small retailers and glass shops. Windows didn't make their way into big box stores that long ago. So how does buying windows from the big box stores compare to a store specializing in windows? It makes a big difference and a result you will be quite surprised about.


When an employee has very little experience with selling and installing windows, their expertise in this field is very limited compared to our window estimators. On average, a person replaces their windows twice in their lifetime. So, it’s important that you find out the correct information because you want these windows to last. The unparalleled service that is offered to you at a Wilson’s Home Improvement from getting a free estimate, to getting a quality installation, cannot be compared to big box.


To your surprise, most big box window prices are more expensive than Wilson’s Home Improvement. Of course, you can't compare what the big box stores have on the rack, so we are talking custom sizes. This common misconception that all prices in big box stores are cheaper than anywhere else is prevalent in our society. Wilson’s deals with the best and when our estimators come out and show you the difference, you will understand why we offer the brands we do.

Don't buy windows off the shelf if you don't have to

Wilson’s does not have any windows in stock that you can walk in and pick off the shelf. So, in this regard, big box stores have an advantage. But who buys windows off the rack? Only those who are installing new construction windows. Otherwise, if you are replacing existing windows, you need to get custom made windows. I say it again, IF you’re replacing existing windows, you need to get custom made windows!  One mistake many homeowners make is buying windows off the shelf at big box stores because they are cheap. Then you end up paying someone lots of money to make that window fit. Unless you are reframing the opening and adding a new window, don't buy windows off the rack. You will spend more money trying to make that window fit than just buying a custom made window which will be sure to fit. Sure it takes more time to receive a custom window, approximately 2-3 weeks depending on the manufacturer, but in the end, you have installed a window the right way.

In short, always remember that you do get what you pay for. If you are making the investment to have new replacement windows put in your home, you want to make sure it is done the right way. If you are in the market for new replacement windows, call Wilson’s today and set up your appointment for a free estimate
