Windows and Doors

Experience and Excellence for Windows and Doors

Windows and doors are so constant in our daily lives that we can often overlook them. As soon as they begin to malfunction, deteriorate or become outdated, however, we quickly realize how important they are.

Perhaps a door or a window starts to let in cold drafts, or it doesn’t open as easily as it used to. Or, maybe it’s time to coordinate your windows and doors for a home repair or remodel.

Window Replacement and Installation: Starting Thoughts

If you’re thinking about replacing or installing windows, note that windows are typically available as three types:

  • Single pane Least expensive, lighter, easier to repair, more translucent if single glazed
  • Double pane Most popular with consumers, more insulated (energy efficient) than single-pane windows
  • Triple pane Thicker and heavier than single and double pane, most likely to reduce energy costs long term

Other window qualities to keep in mind include:

  • Durability Resists water, cold air and environmental elements
  • Comfort Keeps cold air out and warm air in; has strong frames, firm locks and insulated glass
  • Energy efficiency Helps reduce heating and cooling bills while conserving energy
  • Aesthetic appeal Attractive to the eye and stylistically adaptive to your home

Additional factors for choosing the right windows can be noise reduction and home security.

Door Replacement and Installation: Starting Thoughts

Doors offer a range of materials for both function and personal style. Just a few include:

  • Timber Versatile, highly customizable for different types of homes; some have medium-density fiberboard (MDF) cores to prevent shrinkage and expansion
  • Red cedar Very popular; won’t warp, shrink or swell
  • Aluminum Strong, durable, common for garage doors, available in various colors; with an enamel finish, won’t rust or require re-painting
  • Fiberglass Built to last, resistant to harsh and humid weather; won’t rust; can be stained to match or complement your home
