What Colorado Springs Homeowners
Need To Know About Replacement Windows
Triple-Pane Glass Windows Make The Difference
If you’re searching for replacement windows, it’s easy to feel like there are way too many choices to sort through. But the truth is most of the windows you’ll see aren’t all that different in terms of quality.
Most Colorado Springs window replacement companies offer windows of average quality. Many of them are close to identical – in fact, sometimes different companies are selling the exact same windows from the same manufacturers – the windows are just called different names!
Even when windows are from different manufacturers, they typically are constructed in a similar way and with similar materials.
Here’s what most Colorado Springs window contractors install:
- A single or double-pane window with some energy efficient qualities.
- A hollow or foam-filled vinyl frame that might be reinforced in a few areas.
- No special design features and a standard look.
- The windows come with a “Lifetime” warranty, but the exact duration is often unclear and there are typically a bunch of exclusions and loopholes.
What if you want replacement windows that make your home more comfortable, keep energy costs lower, and make your home more attractive?
In other words, something better than the average window.
Colorado Springs homeowners can get the very best replacement windows. Here’s what to look for:
First, find out what kind of glass package your replacement window will have. Always go with triple-pane glass. It is the best for keeping you more comfortable in the dead of winter or the height of summer. Triple-pane glass saves you money on energy bills and cuts down on noise penetration, making your home more peaceful.
You should also find out about the frame of the window. Is it very low maintenance? More importantly, find out if it is reinforced throughout with High Density Resin. Many window frames now are hollow vinyl or foam filled, with limited reinforcement at best. Always get a window with reinforced High Density Resin.
Also, always look for frames that add elegance and curb appeal to your home. Neat design touches like integrated locking mechanisms can make a big difference in the look of your window.
Finally, always make sure you understand how long the warranty is for and what the exclusions are. Many warranties are called Lifetime, but are often vague when it comes to details.
