Aluminum window frames conduct heat rapidly making for poor insulation. This allows for a hot home on hot summer nights and a drafty home in the cold winter nights which ultimately costs you not only money but, discomfort as well. These old frames are especially difficult to find now-a-days because the industry has learned of their poor performance overtime.
Single Pane Glass
According to ENERGY STAR, replacing single-pane windows for a typical home to an ENERGY STAR rated window can save you from $146-$501 annually and 1,147-3,839 pounds of CO₂. (ENERGYSTAR.gov) In addition, upgrading to double or triple pane windows will increase your overall home comfort and security.
The type of window in your home plays a big role in noise transmission. Living near a busy street or a noisy neighborhood can make for noisy nights and lost sleep. Our windows are created using advanced technology to reduce sound transmission.
Fading Furniture, Carpets & Drapes
Older windows allow ultraviolet rays to beam through the windows causing the fabrics in your home to fade in color over time. Our windows have a Low E film that blocks up to 95% of the sun’s ultraviolet light to protect your valuables while still allowing natural light into your home.
This is a sure sign window replacement should be considered. Leaky windows are especially problematic here in the Northwest where rain is abundant. The excess moisture is the perfect environment for mold and mildew growth in your home.
