Q. Do you do the installation all year long? And how does this impact my heating and cooling?
A. We are able to offer expert door and window replacement all year long. We understand your concern for heating or cooling loss. We assure you that we take every measure possible to minimize the amount of energy loss during an install job. Our technicians are expertly trained in all facets of the job, including lessening the likelihood of heating or cooling loss. The good news is that your new energy-efficient doors and windows will make up for any incremental energy expenses resulting from the initial installation.
Q. What should I do to prepare the home for replacement doors and windows?
A. To help save time and make the process go smoother, there are a number of things that you can do. One of the main things is to take down any window treatments that you have in place. If you have a security system, this would be a good time to have your service provider remove and deactivate the existing window sensors. Create a clear path for the installers, and remove any items from the walls that could be knocked loose - better safe than sorry.
Q. What will happen to the old windows?
A. Part of the job we do is also to properly dispose of the doors and windows we replace. We do this for both safety and convenience. However, if you would prefer to keep your old doors or windows, notify us prior to the completion of the job and it will be handled accordingly.
Q. Some of the terms are confusing. How will I know what they mean?
A. You would think a window would be a window until you hear someone talking about sashes and double-hung windows. You can rest assured that by working with us, you will get the accurate information that you need to make a good choice. And if that means you want to learn all the jargon and industry terms, we will help with that, as well.
Q. Can replacement windows and doors really help lower my heating and cooling costs?
A. Absolutely! The amount of how great the difference will be depends a lot on the age and type of windows you currently have. Simply put, modern replacement windows are engineered with energy-efficiency in mind. Technologies like insulated frames help prevent energy loss. Getting rid of your older, inefficient windows and doors will reduce your energy costs and that also means a smaller carbon footprint.
Q. Is it necessary to replace all the windows at the same time?
A. While it is not a requirement, any reputable window replacement company would advise against any other approach. In order to maximize energy savings and maintain a consistent look for the entire home, it is wise to do all your windows at the same time, if at all possible.
