Most homes have been constructed with builder’s grade windows, many times with single-paned construction. Even models 10 years or older that have a double pane may be less energy efficient than the new thermal break style of windows. Thermally insulated glass system with an advanced non-conductive edge spacer retards heat and cold transfer through the edge of the glass for additional energy savings. Additionally, double paned thermally insulated glass provides excellent noise reduction and converts a drab window opening into a window with a touch of class.
The two main styles to choose from are SINGLE HUNG or DOUBLE HUNG windows. Our preference is the double hung. Both sashes can ventilate or tilt-in for safe and convenient cleaning from inside your home. There will no longer be a need to climb exterior ladders or hiring expensive window cleaners.
Another option for homeowners is Storm Windows . Storm windows offer a viable alternative in thermally efficient window products that can save substantial heating and cooling cost. Storm windows help reduce air, dust, and pollen infiltration and also are effective on outside sound control.
Entry doors must be tough enough to withstand wind, rain, scorching sun, and would-be intruders, yet handsome enough to make a good first impression. You'll find dozens of options for panel and glass designs, grille patterns, sidelights, and transoms. Most older ones are made of wood or wood veneer, both of which warp, crack, and delaminate after years of exposure to the elements. Metal doors don't last forever, either--the surface on some older steel doors can peel.
Whether that describes your front door or you just want to trade a solid door for one with glass panels that offer more light, you'll find plenty of options available. There are new wood doors that resist the elements better than earlier versions, as well as metal and fiberglass ones that look like wood but provide greater security and often cost less.
The measurement and replacement of windows and doors are simplified due to our personalized service and our professional installers who are bonded and insured. The desired effect is noticeable through lower energy bills, less solar heat coming into your home, and improved noise reduction.

Clad Windows are a good option if you are looking for durability and low maintenance. These windows are typically wood on the inside with fiberglass, vinyl or aluminum material secured to the outside for added protection and elegance. The fiberglass, vinyl or aluminum material is manufactured to cover the sash and frame of the window.
Double Glazed Windows consist of 2 panes of glass with sealed spaces of ideally 12 to 16 mm in between. This space can be filled with air or an inert gas (like argon). Triple Glazing has 3 panes of glass (any glass combination can be used) with sealed spaces of ideally 12mm in between. Some triple glazed windows can have a u-value as low as 0.9.
Most manufacturers offer dozens of door styles, and you'll find a broad selection at lumberyards, home centers, and door dealers. Doors also come with a variety of detailing -- glass, iron, inlays -- and are either painted or stained. The options, generally, are:
