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.
Why should I replace my home’s windows?
Window replacement affords a variety of benefits including higher resale value for your home, reduced energy bills, and overall comfort of your home.
What is Low-Emissivity or Low-E Glass?
Low-E Glass is outfitted with a microscopically thin, virtually invisible, metal or metallic oxide layer deposited directly on the surface of one or more of the panes of glass. The Low-E coating reduces the infrared radiation from a warm pane of glass to a cooler pane, thereby lowering the U-factor of the window.
