Finding the right window for you is crucial, but all your effort will go to waste if you don’t make sure that your replacement unit is installed right. Windows are only as good as their installation, after all, highlighting the importance of choosing the right window contractor.
If you’re in the market for replacement windows , you’ve probably heard the term “low-E glass” — but you may not know exactly what it means. In today’s post, the experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Central PA explain what low-E glass is and how it boosts the energy efficiency and overall performance of windows.
Once you’ve shortlisted your window design choices, it’s time to consider materials. Window material will matter in almost every aspect of a window replacement project, from product and labor costs to window maintenance and longevity. Needless to say, you have to choose the right window materials to ensure that your investment proves worth it.
Many replacement windows are built with vinyl or wood frames. While these materials have some advantages, they also have major drawbacks, such as poor insulation and onerous maintenance requirements. A far superior frame material is Fibrex®, a composite material exclusively available through Renewal by Andersen®.
Unless your windows get damaged by natural disasters, you will likely only need to replace your windows once in a lifetime. This makes it all the more important to carefully choose the right replacement windows.
