Are You Tired of Window Companies MISLEADING you about PRICE?


Replacement Windows & False Promises

If you’re in the market for new replacement windows, you’ve inevitably seen advertising claims for $189 windows. And while at first you may be thinking…wow, what a great price, that’s really inexpensive…what you’ll soon find out, is that there’s much more to the story. And I’m about to reveal it to you, right here, right now.

What’s happening…is that these window companies are using an impossibly low price to catch your attention.

Have you ever seen an ad on TV for a really nice car, at a price that seemed too good to be true? A price that made you say…whoa!…I can have THAT car for THAT low of a price.

Have you ever heard of someone going to the dealership looking for that deal, only to find out that there was “only one” of those models in stock, but the salesman would be happy to show them another car?

This is what’s known as “bait and switch” advertising.

The extremely low priced car was the bait. And when the person visited the car dealership, the model advertised was conveniently out of stock. But don’t worry…they’ll gladly show you another car while you’re there. The switch.

In the replacement window business, this type of advertising has become very popular. The bait? $189.00 for “any size” window. A price that is over $700 CHEAPER than the national average, according to the Cost vs. Value report published each year by Remodeling Magazine. Think about that.

So if the bait is an impossibly low price, what’s the switch? Here’s how it works.

Method 1: The salesman will tell you that the $189 model will take an extraordinary amount of time to be delivered and installed in your home. 12 weeks, perhaps even 16 weeks or longer. Therefore…the homeowner, who is interested and in need of new replacement windows, says: “I can’t wait 4 or 5 MONTHS for my project”. To which the salesman says: “Well, we do have other models that are manufactured and installed in less than 4 weeks. Would you like to hear about those?”

And as you’d expect…that other window is “just a bit more expensive”. You have effectively been baited, and then switched.

Method 2: You can in fact purchase the window for $189.00, BUT…additional options are extra. What options, you ask?

How about things such as a screen, or insulated Low E coatings or Argon gas. How about a charge to REMOVE the old windows from your property?

That’s right…some companies will charge you to haul away the old windows. If you don’t want to pay that charge? Well I guess they’ll just leave the old windows in your yard.

Can you imagine this?

And I mentioned charging extra for a SCREEN…remember. Let me tell you another secret…windows don’t COME without screens.

The only way a company could NOT give you a screen…is to remove it from the window BEFORE they came to your house. It is a trick…to charge a little extra.

And when you add up all these additional upcharges, that $189 price tag just got a LOT bigger.

Let’s think about this: What are the chances you’re going get a quality replacement window that insulates your home and makes it more quiet and attractive, installed by professional craftsman, and that carries a strong warranty…all for $189.00?

We’re extremely happy with our window purchase. …Installation went very smoothly. The team was very professional.

Rob & Stacie

It’s refreshing to work with a company that cares about their customers the way that Clear Choice USA of Mason City does. We purchased replacement windows from them and absolutely love them. Our initial meeting was a little lengthy but extremely informative they even measured all the windows that were being replaced since their manufacturer custom makes each window to size. Install was exactly four weeks later and took about six or seven hours they removed all the construction debris and walked us through the proper operation of the new windows. We plan on sharing our positive experience with everyone we know.

Jimmy & Georgia

Clear Choice Exteriors of Mason City was referred to us by a family member and we couldn’t be more pleased. Our initial meeting was very informative and we felt the price quoted for triple pane windows was very doable on our budget. Installation was completed within a day and they hauled away the old windows as well as cleaned up the work areas immaculately. We’re planning on replacing our vinyl siding in the spring and will definitely be calling Clear Choice Exteriors of Mason City to do the job.
