Home remodeling often times includes replacing the existing single pane windows with new insulated windows. New windows can really spruce up the looks of a home. The aluminum framed replacement windows are available in the colors Desert Sand, White, Silver and Bronze. While the vinyl frames are offered in White, Desert Sand and Adobe colors. Once installed a color matching frame caulk is used to seal the window frame to the home.
Insulated windows offer our clients a new clean exterior look. While raising the home’s curb appeal, replacement windows can also provide other benefits for you. They can help save money on energy costs and reduce the dust and noise levels in the house.
This can be achieved due to the new window’s superior construction compared to the typical original windows. Many homes are built with cheaper windows to save on costs. These windows are generally single paned and not insulated, which allows for a much higher temperature transfer rate into the home. Also, many homes with single paned windows can suffer from extra dust and noise. Our insulated replacement windows are designed to stop most of the air and dust from entering the home.
For tackling the temperature transfer into a home, our aluminum windows are built with a thermal barrier in the frames and sashes. This barrier helps stop the heat or cold from conducting through the aluminum frames into the home.

Fight the Dust
Our windows help stop the air and dust from entering the house as well. This is done by having an outer and inner air barrier all around the sash. Also, the windows come with aluminum, not plastic, glazing which can last much longer and can prevent air and moisture transfer into the home.
