Today Only Pricing Tricks

When you’re shopping for new windows you’re likely to run across a company using today only pricing. That means that for one reason or another they’ll tell you that the price they can offer today will change tomorrow.

It’s important to remember that this is a sure fire way to know you’re getting a bad deal.

Why would a company offer today only pricing that is only good for one day?

Because they know that if you have time to think it over you won’t buy it.

Now, they won’t tell you that’s the reason. If they did nobody would buy it and then the owner of that company wouldn’t be able to make his boat payment.

How might they explain today only pricing?

Good question. Common strategies are to say they have an appointment saver discount, to a neighborhood discount, or a rebate that is ending or some other promotion that already ended but could be accessed today only. These things just aren’t true.

We write about some of these strategies on our window sales tactics section. If you haven’t seen that section of the site yet you should check it out here.

My advice to you is to know that nothing in this business changes every day. The price today is the price tomorrow and the only reason it wound’t be is if the company wants to to make a rash decision.

Now to be fair prices do change over time. We sometimes hear back from someone 2 years after they’ve recieved a quote from us and they’re ready to place an order. That customer is sometimes unhappy to learn that the price isn’t the same.

Prices do change over time, but not every day. We’re not trading pork bellies here.

Why would they price windows this way?

Sometimes these things are easier to understand if you take an example to the extreme. Imagine there are 100 window companies in any town. One of them must be offering the worst deal out of the 100 companies.

Now you don’t know which company that is, but they do. Everyone in the business knows what other companies are offering. They likely know that they have the worst deal around. They’ll even brag about it at industry meetings. They’re usually pretty proud of the prices they’re able to charge.

How would the worst company in town continue to survive if they let you shop around? They wouldn’t. The only way they can continue to exist is if they can talk you into making a bad decision. That’s why they operate that way.

Good luck with your window project!

As the YouTube channel gets going we’re going to be looking for new and interesting topics to use for our new videos. If you have a window question that you’re struggling with post a comment to let us know. We might just use it for an upcoming video.

If we use your suggestion we’ll send you a TheWindowDog t-shirt of your very own!

The Argon Gas Trick – How Much Argon Gas is in Your Windows?

We can tell a lot about your window shopping experience by the questions you ask us. One common question we get is about the percentage of argon gas in a window we’re offering. This one tells us that you’ve met yourself a creative window salesman.

There is a certain type of window salesperson out there who likes to tell creative stories about the products he sells and about the products sold by “the other guys”.

One of those stories has to do with how much argon gas is in a window. I’ve been through quite a few window plants over the years. When you tour these facilities one thing you notice is that they all use the same types of equipment. You see the same welders, the same cleaners and the same argon filling stations. There could be small changes in the end result, but I’ve never seen any substantial difference.

Why would they lie like that?

I think the window salesperson telling this story is always selling pretty expensive windows. He needs a way to explain why you should pay thousands for for his windows than other options in town. This isn’t the only reason he’ll give, but it’s one of many.

He’ll give you a laundry list of reasons why his windows are far superior to any other window a layperson like you has ever laid eyes on. Then, when he finally shows you the secret price and you gasp, he’ll politely remind you of all of the reasons that his products cost so very much.

I believe he thinks he can get away with this story because argon gas is clear and you can’t see it. Unfortunately for him the National Fenestration Rating Council posts efficiency ratings for every residential window out there. Every window comes with a sticker that shows the ratings and the website shows how the ratings were achieved. The argon’s percentage is right there on the website.

But that’s not completely right?‽!

When I recorded this video yesterday the only examples I found on the site we’re 90/10 meaning 90% argon gas and 10% air. I asked in the video for anyone with any other info to post a comment and someone did in just a matter of hours. You guys are the best.

He posted that 2 manufacturers in the DC area offer options that are 95% argon and 5% air. He was absolutely right.

I checked it out this morning and found just what I expected to find. The addition of 5% more argon gas didn’t seem to make any substantial difference in the efficiency rating. The U-Factor for those options were still in the regular range for any double pane window meaning these options were not any more efficient. Just what we suspected, the additional 5% of argon gas didn’t make the window any better.

If anyone thinks I’m wrong about that post a comment or send me a message. I’d love to hear from you.

If a tree falls in the forest…

If there is 5% more argon gas in one window than another, and the windows have the same efficiency ratings is one better than another? In my humble opinion, no.

I’m not suggesting that manufacturers aren’t being truthful about the efficiency ratings for their products. Rather, I am suggesting that there are in-home salespeople who are comfortable tell stories that are disconnected from the truth.

If you’re interested in looking up any of these things for yourself you certainly can. The website is here and you should know that it’s not very user friendly. It can be a bit of a challenge to navigate, but all the info is there for you to see.

So, when you hear a window salesperson tell you that his windows have more argon gas than another product I would suggest you quietly roll your eyes and show him the door the first chance you get.

Unfortunately, the salesmen that use this type of tactic tend to be the pushiest so you’re likely to hear about the super special discount you can get if you buy right now and then once you say no he’ll probably call the manager for a super special deal.

Should I by from them anyway if the price is great?

My advice is to not feed the wild animals. No matter how high his original price or how fantastic his discount may seem there’s definitely a better value out there and a company that treats you honestly isn’t that hard to find.

Good luck with your window project!

Virgin Vinyl is a Waste of Time

If you’ve been inviting window salespeople into your house lately the odds are good that you’ve heard all about the virtues of virgin vinyl in window frames. What they don’t tend to tell you is that it doesn’t matter. That is why we’ve made our newest Window Wednesday YouTube video.

You see window salespeople can be a funny bunch. They tend to just repeat stories about windows that they’ve been told without much concern for the truth. Virgin vinyl is a great example of this.

You’ll hear them tell you that their windows only use virgin vinyl. They’ll tend to insinuate that other windows aren’t so virtuous. That’s where their story tends to go off the rails.

Why doesn’t this matter?

The part they tend to leave off is that every window uses virgin vinyl. I’m not aware of any window that uses recycled or regrind vinyl. So, it may be true that the product your friendly window sales rep is selling uses brand new fresh virgin vinyl that has never before been anything else. Unfortunately, every other window out there also falls into that camp.

Does excess vinyl get recycled?

Now the scrap vinyl material at the window plant does typically get recycled if possible. Manufacturers can sell scrap vinyl to other companies that produce products that don’t need the same structural integrity as a window.

For example a vinyl siding company can sometimes use regrind vinyl in accessories like j-channel or finish trim or my favorite, the f-channel. Those parts aren’t structural. They’re not sealing out the elements. Using recycled material in them typically won’t hurt anything.

They can also sell the scrap material to companies that make completely unrelated products like trash cans or park benches.

So, when you hear a salesperson talk about the wonders of virgin vinyl just know he or she is probably just repeating what his boss said at the training meeting. It’s a fine feature, but it doesn’t differentiate one product from another.

As the YouTube channel gets going we’re going to be looking for new and interesting topics to use for our new videos. If you have a window question that you’re struggling with post a comment to let us know. We might just use it for an upcoming video.

Common Window Shopping MISTAKES

Here is the very newest video on our fancy YouTube channel. We’re highlighting 3 very common window shopping mistakes and how you can avoid them.

We deal with thousands and thousands of customers and everyone is facing the same challenging situation. You want to get good quality and good prices without overpaying or getting windows too cheap that you won’t be happy with. Everyone is facing the same challenge and everyone responds to that in the same several ways.

Mistake #1 Falling in love with a window brand before you know if there is a reputable company in your area offering that product.

We see this happen ALL the time.  In fact, you can see it too in the comments on this site.  You’ll see people write in to say that they want to buy windows made by company X but the local dealer is a jerk and they’re frustrated that they can’t find anyone else selling those windows.  Don’t fall into this trap.

Mistake #2 Falling for the today only window pricing tactics.

This is another very common mistake.  Nothing in this industry changes every day and no company has prices that will be different tomorrow than they are today.  It’s just not true, but unfortunately people don’t know any better and the salespeople can be very convincing.

In the video we’ll tell you how to get a better price out of these guys, but you still may not want to work with them.

Mistake #3 Buying windows from an installer because you think it’ll be cheaper.  

People do this all the time and they think they’ll save by avoiding the pushy in-home salesperson.  There are several downsides to that and we’ll walk through them in the video.

A cheap window installed by an independent installer can turn out to be a pretty mad move.  We’ve seen that first hand and we’d hate to see you fall into that trap.

As the YouTube channel gets going we’re going to be looking for new and interesting topics to use for our new videos. If you have a window question that you’re struggling with post a comment to let us know. We might just use it for an upcoming video.

If we use your suggestion we’ll send you a TheWindowDog t-shirt of your very own!

Welded Windows Don’t Matter – New Video

Hi there everyone. Our new YouTube bonus video for this week is on welded windows or welded window frames. You may hear a window salesperson going on and on about certain features. Usually it’s a high priced salesperson trying to separate himself from “the other guys”.

They’ll sometimes pick one feature or another and make a BIG deal about it to prove their value. Welded windows are a great example of this. More often than not the feature they pick out is not remarkable at all. That’s the case with welded windows.

Here you can find the newest YouTube video we’ve posted. Our YouTube channel is just getting restarted so there are only a few new videos there, but if you have a project in mind you might want to check it out and hit subscribe.

You’ll even hear the story of one of the shadiest home improvement salespeople I’ve ever met in my entire life. And I’ve met a lot of them.

Announcing Window Wednesday Video Series!

You may have noticed that I’ve been slacking off a little when it comes to new contact on the site. Our company has been busy as ever and that’s been taking up a lot of my time, but more than anything I was just at a little bit of a dead end. Luckily, I’ve solved that problem. At least for the next year.

Starting today, and every Wednesday for the next 52 consecutive weeks we’ll be publishing a new video on our YouTube channel. The series is called Window Wednesday and it came from about 1000 requests from our readers and customers. Here’s the very first episode:

Now I know that frequent visitors of the site already know who I am and what we’re up to but we get comments from window salespeople who are offended by me revealing their secrets all the time. They usually tell me what a no good idiot I am and I tend to get a kick out of it.

You see they often just got out of sales training 101 where their heads were filled with dreams of riches. Then they go out into the world for their first few weeks of actual window selling where they learn it’s not so easy to close those deals at $1,500 per window. They hear about our site from a customer who doesn’t fall for the model home discount or one of the others, and they come hear to tell me about how dumb I am.

So, this is the very first episode. We’re just getting warmed up. The next episode will be about the difference between employee and subcontractor installers. After that we’re going to talk about the one and only reason window companies use today only prices and from there the possibilities are endless.

If you have a suggestion for a video topic, let me know in the comments below. I have 20 or 30 ideas written out and we have 52 weeks to fill so I’m absolutely open to suggestion. Think about what aspect of shopping for windows has seemed the most difficult or the most challenging to navigate. I bet you lunch I can help to make sense of it.

If we use your suggestion we’ll send you a TheWindowDog t-shirt of your very own!

Now Offering Alside & Revere Windows (almost) Nationwide!

In the fall of 2015 we started testing a program offering both Alside and Revere windows with and without professional installation in several cities across the country. Thanks to our fantastic readers this program has been a HUGE success. As a result, we’ve expanded to 37 markets nationwide and launched our new brand, Window Universe Express.

If you’re looking for new windows for your home this is the easiest possible way to get there and I’ll show you why. Check out our FAQ (link below) for even more info.

widow dog replacement windows
Here’s the window dog hard at work with the team at a home and garden show. He has to earn his kibble around here!

First, we’re offering a wide range of window options from both Alside and Revere. Our most popular options have been the Alside Mezzo and the Revere Berkshire Elite and there are many others to choose from. We’re also offering all styles of windows including casements, bay windows, garden windows, sliding patio doors and much more.

Next we’re offering top quality installation with a local project manager and top quality installation crews to make sure everything is done right. You can also install the windows yourself if you’d prefer.

Best of all, if you’re in an area covered by this program, we can get you a complete itemized quote for your project without ever inviting a salesperson to your home.

That’s right, you could spend several evenings inviting salespeople into your home to give you their sales pitch, walk you through their predetermined “price drops” and try to close the deal with their 50% off today only special after calling the manager for a special deal 3 times. Or, you could exchange a few emails with our industry experts to get your project moving along quickly and easily.

It’s up to you…

So who is Window Universe?

window universe replacement windows

Window Universe is the company we founded many years ago. We’ve grown from one small business operating out of an apartment to a multimillion-dollar business with 16 stores in several states and more on the way.

With our Window Universe Express brand we have the same top-quality products and services that we offer through our retail stores.

How does this all work?

It’s pretty simple, which is why I love it. When you’re ready to get a quote for your replacement window project just fill out the form below and we’ll get back to you with the most helpful email we can write as quickly as we can.

You’ll see we don’t need the sizes of the windows to get you a quote. This seems unusual to some folks, but even in markets where we have stores our reps don’t measure the windows.   It’s just not necessary to get a quote in the vast majority of projects. We’ll get the windows measured before the manufacturing begins, but it’s not needed yet.

The basic info we’ll need is how many windows you want to replace, how do you want them to open, what color window frames do you want, etc. Just the basics.

If there is anything about your project that you think is unusual just note it and we’ll address it when we get back to you. The whole process is really easy.

What have our customers been saying about this program?

 Here’s one example:

If you don’t want to DIY your windows but pride yourself in being an informed consumer, Window Universe Express is the way to go! After sitting for hours listening to people tell me why their windows were the best, I couldn’t figure out why the window packages I was being presented with were so expensive ($10 – 12k for 7 slider windows)…

We are so pleased with the windows, the installer, and the process… Window Universe Express has created a great way to inform yourself as a consumer and be able to get real numbers. No games, gimmicks or “guess what your price is going to be if you buy it today!”

I rarely write reviews for products/services, but I was so impressed with the process, price and product, I told Dan that I would be happy to endorse them!

–Excerpt of an Angie’s List review from Andrea in Seattle, WA

Here’s another.

Every aspect of this window experience was excellent. They didn’t give a sales pitch, but instead provided links to specific information about all different types/brands of windows with ratings and specifications, so I was able to make an informed decision. 

He then provided a very detailed quote so I knew exactly what I was paying for, and was able to add or remove options and see the price impact of these changes. The accountant in me loved this approach.  Once we agreed to the window specs, I was given a final price and the measuring was scheduled. 

The gentlemen who came to measure the windows arrived when scheduled and was quick and efficient.  The windows were promptly ordered and once the windows were ready, the installation was scheduled.  The installation crew arrived on time and got right to work.  They put down tarps on my carpets since the install was on the 2nd floor and it was wet and snowy outside.  They installed the windows in a few hours and cleaned up afterwards.

–Excerpt of an Angie’s List review from Lisa in Philadelphia, PA

Here’s a bit more feedback from Austin in Dallas.  You get the idea.

Folks love it.

Why are the prices so great?

Ha.  Good question.  Window Universe Express is a completely different kind of window company.  We’re able to offer top quality products and expert level service at a very low price because we don’t spend our money on things you don’t care about.

Most traditional window companies spend tons and tons of money on sales and marketing.  It’s not unusual for a company to spend 30%-40% of their total sales dollars on things that you don’t care about like sales commissions, marketing and advertising.  Paying people to walk around neighborhoods knocking on doors is expensive, so are tv commercials and billboards.

Another company may be able to get to a similar price by offering cheap windows or by using cheap subcontractors.  That’s a low price, but it’s not a great value.

A typical company offering the products and services we do would charge $10k for a project while we would charge $7k or less.  It’s just a great deal.

I have more questions

Great! I love it when folks ask great questions. I’ve been emailing with many people about this program since we launched. I’ve noted most of the questions we get and put the answers all in one place for you.

On our FAQ page you’ll find answers to all sorts of questions like:

  • Will the price change after the windows are measured?
  • Who does the installation?
  • What is the warranty on these windows?
  • Are these the right windows for my climate?

Answers to those questions and many more on our FAQ page here – this will open in a new tab so you don’t lose your place here.

How do I get a quote?

That’s the easiest part. When you’re ready to get a detailed itemized quote for your project just fill out the form below and we’ll send you back an email just as quickly as we can.

If you don’t know the answer to any of the questions or if you’re not sure about something just make a note of it and send in the form as complete as you can. It’s ok if you don’t know all of the terms for these things. We don’t require you to be a window expert.

What if I don’t know the window terms?

Don’t worry about it.  If you’re unsure about something just take your best guess and let us know you’re not quite sure.  We can always revise the proposal later.

Another great way to learn about window styles and options is to take a look at our window design studio.  You can see the common styles and options with the right terminology.  Give it a try.

Andersen Windows Sells Silver Line and American Craftsman brands

This is a deal that happened a little while back and at the request of some commenters who may be Renewal by Andersen salespeople we’ve posted it here.

We used to find it funny that the Renewal by Andersen salespeople would pick on vinyl windows while their company was producing thousands of them, but now they’ve sold these vinyl brands.

Maybe they took our advice that producing cheap vinyl windows didn’t help their sales pitch for more expensive options. Either way, here is the press release they issued back on August 28th.

Now that the American Craftsman and Silver Line window brands are owed by Ply-Gem windows we’ll see if there are any updates to the product lines. Ply Gem has a lot of experience producing vinyl windows so perhaps we’ll see some much needed upgrades.

BAYPORT, Minn., Aug. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Andersen Corporation, America’s premier window and door manufacturer, today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to sell its hollow core vinyl window and patio door business, including the Silver Line and American Craftsman brands, to Ply Gem, a leading manufacturer of building products used in both new construction and home repair and remodeling across the United States and Canada. 

Andersen has been leading the window and door industry for more than 115 years by creating different and better products and services and building brands people value and trust. In recent years, the company has achieved unprecedented growth, driven by its Andersen®, Renewal by Andersen® and specialty brands. 

“This divestiture is part of Andersen’s broader strategy to sharpen our focus on our Andersen, Renewal by Andersen and specialty brands, continue to make the significant investments required to support our fast-growing, proprietary, Fibrex® engineered composite products, and deliver exceptional value to our customers for years to come,” said Andersen Corporation Chairman and CEO Jay Lund. “In addition, we believe the Silver Line and American Craftsman brands and the talented employees who have built these brands will have continued growth opportunities under Ply Gem’s stewardship.”

Ply Gem will acquire the four Silver Line manufacturing plants, associated distribution and support services for $190 million, which represents a 10X multiple of Silver Line’s trailing 12-month EBITDA through the second quarter of 2018. The more than 4,000 employees working in these locations and functions will transition to Ply Gem with the business.

“The Silver Line and American Craftsman brands are industry leading brands and have been trusted by customers and consumers for over 60 years and Ply Gem is excited to add them to our existing portfolio of quality window products,” said Gary E. Robinette, Ply Gem’s Chairman and CEO.

The transaction is expected to close by early in the fourth calendar quarter of 2018, subject to regulatory review and approval.

Vista Window Company Closes Their Doors

Unfortunately another smaller window manufacturer has closed their doors for good.  It looks like Vista Window Company is gone.  Their voicemail says they closed due to unforeseen circumstances and their google listing says they’re closed for good.  We always hate to see a company struggle.  Unfortunately, I think it’s going to continue to get more difficult for smaller window companies to compete.

vista windows bankruptcy
Vista Window Company closed their doors on January 14th 2019.

What happens with the Vista Windows Warranty?

We’ve reached out to Vista Window Company and asked about the status of any pending orders and if there is any process for warranty claims as I’m sure our readers will be asking.

Right now, I would guess that there is no warranty and owners of these windows may be out of luck.  If we hear back with any info I’ll update this page right away.

What about pending orders for Vista Windows?

If you have an order pending for Vista windows I’d reach out to your contractor or dealer right away to make sure they can offer you something else.  Most reputable contractors will have credit terms established with manufacturers so they likely haven’t actually paid for your windows.  That means the contractor still has any deposit you’ve given them and you can (hopefully) order something else.  If they tell you the deposit is spent you might want to check with an attorney as you’ll probably have a hard time getting that money back.

If you hear any info that is different than what we’re written here please let us know asap.  You can post a comment or contact us privately.  I’m sure many folks will have questions about the status of Vista Window Company so any info you have to share will be helpful.

What if I was about to order Vista Windows?

Consider yourself lucky!  It’s time to order something else.  I’d look towards larger manufacturers.  You never know what the future may hold for any company, but there are plenty of large and we’ll established companies out there.  There’s no need to take a gamble on a smaller player.

If/when we receive any new information on Vista Windows we’ll post it on this page so feel free to bookmark this page and check back for updates anytime.

If you’re still shopping for new windows a good first step is to check our list of great local companies.  You can also find our detailed window reviews here.  Have fun!
