Crucial Clues it’s Time to Upgrade Your Windows


  • Scraping and Painting: Older windows are often painted and require regular maintenance to prevent rotting. New vinyl and aluminum windows have little to no upkeep.


  • Ease of Use: If you begin to struggle when opening your windows, it may be time to repair or replace your windows. It shouldn’t be difficult to take advantage of basic window functionality.


  • Condensation: Moisture that collects on the glass and clouds your view can cause mold growth and increased utility bills. New windows with improved energy efficiency reduce or eliminate this problem.


Keep an Eye Out for Energy Efficient Window Options


Many educated buyers place a high priority on the energy efficiency of the windows they purchase. When you shop around for windows, take a look at the R-value. This value indicates the energy efficiency of the materials and insulation. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation properties.


Also, pay attention to the U-factor — the rate of non-solar heat flow the glass conducts. The lower the U-factor, the better a window’s energy efficiency.


When you work with our team, we’ll identify the most energy efficient window option for your home. Always keep in mind that Energy Star rated windows often come with tax credits.


Getting to the Good Stuff: Select a Window Style Perfect for Your Home


Homes in Jacksonville, FL greatly vary in age and design from town to town. The window style you choose comes down to your preference and the aesthetic of your new or old home. You have a few main options when you choose to install new windows:


  • Hy-Lite Acrylic Block windows are a great option to increase the privacy in certain areas of your home. The blocks come double- or triple-paned to automatically increase your home’s energy efficiency. Chat with our team about your many shape, size and customization options.


  • Sliding windows are a common choice amongst Jacksonville homeowners. Depending on the style and level of windows you choose, this option is typically very affordable and low-maintenance. The only possible downside to sliding windows is restrictions in ventilation because only half of the window opens.


  • Casement windows are perfect if your home requires clean, contemporary finishes. Casement windows pivot open on hinges. These hinges mimic the action of opening and closing a door. This window design is typically tall and narrow.
