What to Look For When Buying Home Windows?

One of the common questions we get revolves around what people should look for when they buy home windows. It is a combination of everything including the quality of the windows, the brand name, the features of the windows, the warranty that may or may not comes with them, as well as the trustworthiness of the company that is selling them to you.


How Do You Compare Energy Efficient Windows?

Any new window that you buy is going to be pitched to you as an energy efficient window. How is it, then, that you can compare one window to another? What differentiates them from each other?  Windows are going to have a label that is known as the National Fenestration Rating Council or NFRC label. When you check out this tag, it is going to provide you with information as to the energy efficiency of the product. The rating is going to hit on everything from the solar heat gain, visible light transmittance values, as well as the u-value. Whether or not the window replacement options you choose in Jacksonville are Energy Star approved or not can also be a major determining factor.


Why Are My Windows Drafty?

The fact that you have air making its way through the windows means that you probably have aging windows that need to have attention paid to them. As your windows get older, they are going to lose energy efficiency. The glass is going to weaken, the frames will begin to crap and break down, and the air from the outside is going to have that much more ability to pass right through. This is what can lead to drafty windows, so much that you may be able to feel the air pass right through them.


What is Low-E Glass?

Low-E glass is something that is talked about a lot when you are shopping for new windows, but it is often misunderstood as to exactly what it is. Low-E glass is a coating that goes on the inside of the windows. The coating is intended to provide you with added protection from the harmful UV-rays of the sun, blocking it from being able to break through, reducing the amount of heat that passes in as well.


How Long Does a Window Replacement Job in Jacksonville Take?

Window replacement jobs go a lot quicker than you think. Our professionals can usually replace the windows of a reasonably sized home in roughly one day, maybe two at the most. It all comes down to our ability to get the old windows out, clean up and prepare the area, and get the new windows installed.  


Should I Repair or Replace My Windows?

The most common question we get is about repairing or replacing windows.  A new window replacement project in your Jacksonville home is something that is very appealing.  Who doesn’t like something that is brand new and flashy? Who doesn’t like windows you can quickly open, close and clean.


The decision as to whether or not you should repair or replace depends on the state of what you have. Are the windows you have now truly a pain to operate daily? Are any of them cracked or broken entirely?  If you answer yes, then it probably makes more sense to invest in a set of brand new vinyl windows.


How are my Windows Replaced?

We get a lot of questions around the actual job of installing new windows.  In most cases, we can use the frame that already exists. We will remove the old window and insert the new window right into the frame that was there before. You get the amazing benefits of high-efficiency glass and framing.  


If we cannot take this path, we frame the windows up entirely in the location so that they get that perfect fit.


Replace One or All Windows?

Does it make more sense to replace just one window or a whole set of windows for a house? Chances are you are going to want to do the whole house at once. The cost per window is going to reduce the more windows you have installed. On top of that, the house is going to look that much more uniform when all of the same types of windows are used throughout the residence.  Once you start to mix old windows with new ones, it may not look right.


There are several other common questions that we get about the window replacement jobs in Jacksonville that we do every day.
