The year’s about to end and it’s been a good year for homeowners looking for replacement windows. In case you haven’t been following window market news closely in recent years, here are some industry-wide updates on replacement windows in Milwaukee and surrounding areas you may have missed:
Energy-Efficient Window Options on the Rise
Largely due to the fact that energy tax credits are now being given out, and also due to the energy savings they can make, homeowners are now making it a point to make more parts of their home energy-efficient. Unlike their more outdated types, energy-efficient windows have that added benefit of helping homeowners cut down on their utility bills, making them attractive even without government incentives.
- New frame types – Window frames are traditionally made of wood, mainly due to the material’s look and durability. Over the years, non-conventional frame materials such as metal, aluminum, vinyl, and composites have also emerged and are now being utilized.
- Glass innovations – Most of the innovations for glass are focused on its insulating properties, with insulation-filled and evacuated glazing as popular techniques. These improve heat transfer and keep heat gain and loss to a minimum.
Focus on Both Style and Functionality
Gone are the days when shopping for windows means just looking for windows that can adequately protect us from elements, provide security and privacy, and aid with lighting and ventilation. With more styles, sizes, and colors readily available, more homeowners make it a point to incorporate their personal taste in their choice of windows. This comes hand in hand with the growing realization that windows have a large role in a home’s overall design and curb appeal.
