As an integral part of a building's exterior, windows are exposed to weather and other harsh conditions. Following are some of the reasons you may be looking to replace your windows.
We repair and replace any window type. You can stay with a similar look or choose a whole new style when replacing windows. Some available window types are listed below.
When selecting new windows, an item to consider is their frame material. Each material has its benefits.
Made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), vinyl window frames are affordable, good insulators, and don't stick due to expansion and contraction.
Aluminum windows have a sleek, modern style and are low-maintenance. They do not degrade in sunlight and do not have rot or mold problems.
Composite window frames are easy to maintain, energy efficient, sustainably sourced, and come in a variety of colors.
In addition to looking better and having improved functionality, a replacement window can also save you money on your energy bills.
While more affordable, single-pane windows are the least energy-efficient and do not dampen outside noise. Double-pane windows offer a nice balance of affordability and energy efficiency. They lower energy bills and help keep inside temperatures comfortable. The majority of windows we install are double-pane. Triple-pane windows are the most energy-efficient on the market. They are excellent insulators resulting in superior energy efficiency and noise reduction, although they are more expensive than double panes.
Double and triple-pane windows may be filled with Argon gas or Krypton gas in between the panes for added insulation purposes. Both are odorless and nontoxic. Argon gas is most commonly used. Krypton gas is denser, making it more energy-efficient; it is also more expensive.
A gentleman selected Weatherford Glass to replace the windows in his two-story home. He chose triple-pane windows. Before the window replacement, he could hear people's conversations outside through his upstairs window. After installing triple-pane windows, he couldn't even hear a diesel truck running just outside the windows. It's incredible how much new windows can improve sound deadening.
Cardinal Low-E 366 glass is used in most windows on the market today because it has a good balance of clear visibility and solar control.
Low-E (low-emissivity) glass coating allows light to enter but blocks the heat. A Low-E coating can keep the home cool on a hot day by keeping the heat out. The coating also reduces the ultraviolet light entering, protecting carpet, furniture, and artwork from fading. In addition, Low-E glass keeps most indoor heat from escaping through the glass when it's cold outside.
Solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) measures how much solar energy passes through the window. A higher number means a higher percentage of solar heat passes. Lower numbers are better.
Following are some examples.
Windows have R-value ratings. The higher the R-value, the better the energy insulating properties of the window. Following are some examples of R-ratings for various window types.
