How To Find The Best Windows
For Littleton Homeowners
Don’t Settle For Double-Pane Glass And Weak Frames
Finding the right replacement windows for your Littleton home can be relatively easy if you know what to look for. While it might seem at first like there are lots and lots of different kinds of windows available to you, the truth is most of those windows are very much the same.
There are a lot of different contractors willing to install replacement windows in Littleton. But most of those companies are installing window that all fall into the same basic category: average.
The typical replacement window has:
- 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.
When you buy replacement windows, you’ll live with the results for a long time. If the performance of your windows is lousy, you’ll be less comfortable in your home and your energy bills will be more costly than they need to be.
Fortunately, not all replacement windows being installed in Littleton are of mediocre quality.
Look For Windows With Triple-Pane Glass, Strong Frames, And Great Curb Appeal
The first question to ask any window company is about the glass in their windows.
The best answer is that all their windows come with triple-pane glass.
Triple-pane is far superior to single and double-pane options. You’ll notice the difference in comfort inside your home, as triple-pane keeps your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summers.
Your home will also be quieter with triple-pane glass because sound penetration is cut way down. And because breaking through or removing triple-pane glass is so much more difficult, your home is also more secure.
The other big key to a best-quality replacement window is the frame. Avoid hollow or foam-filled frames. The best frames are reinforced with High Density Resin (HDR). You might hear about some windows reinforced in a few spots only – always look for windows that are reinforced with HDR throughout.
The other key is finding a window that increases the curb appeal of your Littleton home. Cool design touches like integrated locking mechanisms can make a big difference in the look of your window.
