Vinyl Replacement Windows & Doors
Vinyl Replacement Windows & Doors not only increase the resale value of your home, they are also an excellent way to make your home more energy efficient. All of the windows and doors we install are double strength dual pane glass allowing for a higher insulation value. This will protect your home from unwanted loss or gain of heat and cold transfer from the outside elements. The windows and doors also insulate your property from unwanted noise originating from outside your home such as busy streets, loud school yards, neighbors doing yard work, etc.
Our vinyl replacement windows are custom manufactured to fit the finished openings in your home down to 1/8″ and come in a variety of styles, colors and meet almost any budget. Over the past 20 years, Vinyl Replacement Windows and Doors have become a very viable alternative to Wood framed windows or Aluminum framed windows due to the fact that they are virtually maintenance free and carry a limited lifetime warranty that is unlike any other warranty in the marketplace. There have been many advancements in the technologies regarding Low-E windows in the past few years that have changed the entire world of energy efficient windows and doors. Currently, the Energy Code sets certain standards for the performance of products installed in new and existing homes. These codes now require Low-E Glass in all residential homes as a standard. If you currently do not have dual pane Low-E windows, you are not up to code.
Vinyl Replacement Windows Low-E
Low-E is a film that is several layers of metal poured microscopically thin over the surface of newly poured glass. This heat reflective film is transparent but can be darker or lighter depending on the type and manufacturer. Low E glass is up to four times more efficient than clear glass. Our windows offer the highest quality spacers between the panes of glass, which reduce the failure rate and conduction that allows seal failure. In windows that are not manufactured to this standard, this creates “fogging” or condensation to form between the panes. Modern windows also have optional gases between the panes that have higher insulative qualities than air, such as argon or krypton gases.
