5 Easy Steps to Choosing the Right Windows

A simple breakdown on how to decide which window type is best for your project.


STEP 1

Do You Need Replacement OR New Construction Windows?

You need Replacement windows for: 

  • Replacing old, cracked or painted shut windows
  • Upgrading to more energy efficient windows
  • When installing into an existing window opening

Replacement windows DO NOT have an installation/nailing fin. 

You need New Construction windows for: 

  • Remodeling or room additions
  • New construction or home building
  • When the existing frame is completely removed

The primary distinction of New Construction windows is the presence of an installation/nailing fin 

STEP 2

Choose Your Features and Styles

What is important to you about new windows? Is it energy efficiency? Upgraded strength and insulation? Performance glass? And which operating styles fits best with your home?

STEP 5

Decide Who Will Install Your Windows 

Do it yourself or have a professional install your windows for you. Please ask a Lowe’s store associate for complete details.
