Reduced Energy Bills

Unfortunately for us that own or rent homes, we pay to heat and cool them. Equally unfortunate is the fact that exterior windows and doors are the weakest link of the building envelope in terms of allowing the transfer of heat and cold. Changing out your inefficient windows and doors with new and efficient alternatives can reduce your heating and cooling costs by over 25%. With rising energy prices, the dollar savings can be even greater. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a few extra dollars a month to use elsewhere?

Low Maintenance

Many new window, and door products are designed with low-maintenance in mind. For instance, vinyl frames will never have to be painted, and fiberglass frames are inherently stable so their factory paint stays on for a lifetime. In addition, many of the hardware systems for windows and doors are made of durable, die-cast zinc or stainless steel material that go through thousands upon thousands of cycle-tests to ensure they will hold up in your home. In fact some window manufacturers today offer a full lifetime warranty to the original homeowner that covers both labor and materials. Wouldn’t you like that kind of peace-of-mind and low-maintenance from your windows and doors?
