What is a replacement window?

A true replacement window is a window that’s custom built to fit within the opening of an existing window. It’s built to fit precisely and can be installed without disturbing the interior and exterior areas around the window.

Do replacement windows really pay for themselves or is that just a sales line?

It’s true, if you select high-quality, energy-efficient windows. Savings will vary, but expertly engineered and well-built windows lower home energy consumption. With vinyl-framed windows, maintenance is also virtually eliminated. No need to scrape and paint windows. These energy and maintenance savings will allow you to recoup your window investment over time.

How are replacement windows any different from older windows in terms of cleaning?

Many high-quality windows are actually engineered to make cleaning easier. For example, double-hung windows with the latest internal constant force balance system allow a homeowner to easily maneuver the sashes up and down. They tilt in—and lock securely in place—for safe, easy cleaning. Quite a difference from old wood windows that stick and are difficult to move up and down.

What are the advantages of vinyl windows over windows made with wood, metal or a combination of materials?

Vinyl is THE ideal window construction material because it:

– Doesn’t deteriorate or rot.
– Can be extruded and shaped into brilliant window designs.
– Doesn’t damage or corrode when scratched.
– Can be fusion welded to eliminate air and moisture leaks at the joints.
– Offers excellent insulating properties—especially when used in multiple-cavity frame designs.

What makes a window energy efficient?

Numerous factors, including how the frame and sashes are engineered and built, the type of glass used (single-, double- or triple-pane), the weatherstripping, the type of low-emissivity coating on the glass and the presence of argon or krypton gas.
