Houston Windows Replacement
Vinyl Windows are made from impact-resistant polyvinyl chloride (PVC). They are hollow inside keeping them heat and condensation resistant. They are non-corrosive, low-maintenance and do not require any painting or staining.
Wood does not conduct cold or allow for condensation as much as other materials, and is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Wood windows are usually unfinished unless you order them painted. In the long term, be prepared for maintenance, such as repainting or refinishing.
Fiberglass frames have grown more popular over the years. They are made of a mixture of glass fibers and resin. This design protects against warping by slightly expanding and contracting due to temperature changes. The frames are extremely strong and durable, and can hold large panes of glass perfectly in place. Fiberglass does not need repainting, however, the material can be painted if desired.
Aluminum windows tend to be more durable and longer lasting than wood or vinyl. This option provides decreased heat loss and reduced condensation due to the thermal barrier. Aluminum windows are not recommended for beach homes due to salt corrosion.
Our Houston windows replacement service offers several top brands that meet the ENERGY STAR standards for your specific climate requirements.
What Makes an Energy-Efficient Window?
Dual and Triple Glazing deliver energy-efficient windows that provide exceptional insulation from the Houston heat and chilly winters. The glazing is offered in either dual or triple pane glass.
Low-E Glass Coatings – Low emissivity is a thin solar coating applied to one side of the glass which regulates consistent temperatures, even in Houston. Heat is reflected from its source during the summer months and retained during the winter months. Harmful UV rays are reduced by 84%, which helps protect your carpet and furniture fabrics from fading.
