Benefits of High-Quality Windows
If you replace your current windows with our high-quality windows, here are the benefits you will enjoy:
If you install high-quality, energy-efficient windows, you will save quite a bit of money on utility bills. High-quality windows can lower your energy costs substantially by eliminating overcompensation of your HVAC unit due to air leakage in the summer and winter months. You can also enjoy tax rebates, credits, and incentives for upgrading to energy-efficient windows besides the monthly cost savings on your utility bill.
One of the most common complaints when it comes to older windows is drafts. Strong direct sunlight shining on older windows can also heat up the interior of your home, causing discomfort for everybody inside. Replacement high-quality windows are built to eliminate drafts and reflect heat greatly thus improving your indoor comfort level.
You have spent significant resources creating your dream home with the right paint colors, carpeting, wood floors, curtains, and fabrics for the upholstery. The ultraviolet rays of the sun streaming through old, uncoated glass can cause all of these to fade and deteriorate. Today’s high-quality windows have low-emissivity coatings that can reduce fading by as much as 75 percent.
It can be a hassle to clean and maintain old windows, but the newer high-quality windows of today have special features that make maintenance and cleaning significantly easier. Older wooden window frames had to be refinished every few years, but today’s composite frames require such little maintenance that they can be considered essentially maintenance-free.
Window coverings such as shades, curtains, and blinds can all harbor dust and allergens and can be difficult to clean regularly. Today’s high-quality windows include options for shades and blinds incorporated right within the windows. This means that dust cannot accumulate on the shades or blinds, and your home will have one less landing place for dust and allergens that can be incredibly irritating.
Types of Windows We Offer
We offer windows of many different types and styles. Our classification of windows is on two main levels:
It refers to the choice of materials used to make the window and here we have two options available:
Vinyl windows are made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which is the same material used to make both pipes and fittings for plumbing with ultraviolet light (UV) stabilizers that prevent the sun from breaking down the material.
Vinyl is an excellent choice for those that want to ensure that their choice of windows matches their home style. Vinyl windows are also affordable, are good insulators, have good moisture resistance, and don’t require painting. The hollow cavities of vinyl window frames can be filled with insulation, which makes them superior to wood frames.
Composite windows, on the other hand, mimic wood and are made by combining several wood products, such as particleboard and laminated strand lumber, with some even being mixed with polymer plastics. The inner material layer is then covered with aluminum or vinyl to protect the wood within.
Composite windows are incredibly stable and have the same or better thermal and structural properties as conventional wood, and have better moisture and decay resistance. These structurally sound windows are an excellent choice for those looking for the traditional style of wood without the inflated costs and maintenance hassles.
It refers to the actual design of the window and here we have seven different options for you to choose from:
Double-hung windows have 2 large sashes that slide up and down within vertical tracks. Weights concealed in the wall pockets behind case moldings counterbalance sashes in older windows, but in today’s double-hung windows, it is more common for the sashes to be counterbalanced by springs concealed within the side tracks.
Single-hung windows look identical to their double-hung counterparts. You can find them in any home in the United States but are particularly common in the coastal areas or parts of the country with high wind. Unlike the double-hung windows, the defining feature of these windows is the fixed top sash. It means that only the bottom portion of the window is operable.
Instead of opening vertically like single-hung and double-hung windows, sliding windows open horizontally by moving from side to side. Sliding windows are popularly used in areas of the home where you might not have the space or leverage needed to easily open a hung window, such as over a washer/dryer or behind a kitchen sink.
Picture windows don’t open, which makes them the ideal choice for framing great views without sacrificing security or safety. The windows work particularly well in areas of the home with limited access, such as vaulted ceilings and recessed walls. Picture windows are often combined with other window styles to create unique configurations that add charm and character to the home.
Bay windows are similar to picture windows but instead have angled operable windows on both sides. Bay windows are ideal for living rooms where you want to show off the view while also letting fresh air into the home. Bay windows extend slightly outside the interior wall thereby adding light, depth, and architectural interest to your home.
Casement windows swing outside when opened via a crank. During installation, you can decide whether you prefer the window hinges to be on the left or right side. These crank-out windows open all the way to give your home more ventilation compared to other window types. That’s why you need to clear nearby trees or bushes that block casement windows.
Awning windows are essentially casement windows oriented to swing open vertically. Just like casement windows, awning windows also provide good ventilation and usually seal well. You will often find this type of window in bedrooms or in narrow or high places such as above doors since the crank mechanism is rather easy to operate even when some reaching is required.
