Does your home have old or drafty windows? Are you looking to bring your home up-to-date or increase energy efficiency? Let Cornerstone Construction give your home an instant makeover and save you money in the long run with new or replacement energy-efficient windows.
Cornerstone Construction is here to assist you from start to finish with all of your residential window project needs. We will help you understand the important considerations to make while picking the right product to integrate with the existing style of your home.
- Window frames: The structural integrity of the window lies in the material of the frame. Wood, vinyl, and metal are popular choices, but it’s important to understand the pros and cons of each material before making your choice. Wood and vinyl are probably the most popular options. Wood is considered premium and a bit higher maintenance, while vinyl is slightly inferior but virtually maintenance-free. Metal is the strongest of the three and most commonly used in commercial applications.
- Window Glass: The number of glass layers and coatings on the glass will determine energy efficiency. It’s important to examine this closely in conjunction with your climate when selecting a window.
- Window Openings: Fixed windows have higher thermal performance simply because they cannot open or close. Different opening styles will have different amounts of air leakage and, consequently, varying thermal performance.
