Elements of a Great Window

Choosing great new windows can be a difficult and slightly scary new process for you. It can also be a bit difficult to determine what truly makes up a great window. As a matter of fact, there are quite a few things that make up the perfect window and that is what we have outlined for you below.

  • Frame: Having a great, strong frame is perfect for a home, as it will hold up in even the worst of weather. This being said, the weather in New England can be quite violently changing, from humidity and heat one day, to wind and snow a week later. Rain comes at a random time, and because of all of these reasons, it is important to make sure that the frame, which acts as a base, is perfect for your home.
  • Air Infiltration: When getting new windows, it is important to make sure they have weather stripping. This holds up to dirt and dust extremely well and ensures that your home is safe from weather.
  • Glass: Making sure that the glass is efficient is extremely important. This being said, a clear glass needs a good protective coat to ensure it is as efficient as possible.
  • Ratings: Checking the ratings is important because sometimes it is beneficial to know other’s experiences with the same product.
  • Value: You will want to check to see how the product performs in the long run. If you are making this kind of investment, you will want to know what the value of the windows truly is.

Benefits of Replacing Windows

Replacing windows can be a huge decision that you will have to make as a homeowner. While it can be expensive, there are many benefits that replacing windows include, and over time, in the long-term, this investment can really go a long way. Let’s take a look at some of these benefits.

Lower Energy Costs: By replacing your windows, the quality of the material is typically much better, and because of this, the amount of air getting into and out of the house decreases due to a better seal technology. This being said, a better seal on the window means that you are saving money because the temperature will not be fluctuating due to drafts from the area. Heat will stay inside of the home during the winter time and air conditioning will stay in the home during summer months.

UV Protection: Natural light can be important to a room because it is natural and costs nothing in regard to electricity. However, the rays can be harmful to you, as well as the interior of your home. Many new windows now have the ability to block most of these rays, which protects your skin, as well as makes sure that your interior does not fade.

Maintenance: New windows require a significant amount less maintenance than old windows. This is because the technology is better, and therefore, you will not have to deal with broken pieces, drafts, etc.

Noise Reduction: Due to the seal of new windows, as mentioned above, most newer windows allow for less noise to come into the house. This will give you peace of mind, as well as help to keep the noise in your home to a minimum.

Home Value: By installing new windows to your home, you are looking for a higher home value. If you are looking to sell your house in the next few years, adding new windows may be a valuable project to take on, as it can pay off when you sell the house.

Window Transformation In New England

Our team recently finished up an amazing window transformation of a home in New England. The contractors on the project truly specialized in installing these gorgeous bay windows to the exterior/interior of the home. They installed one style of window, which was the Harvey Building Products Bay window. This was created with the utmost of craftsmanship, as well as the highest quality of products. Harvey Building Products has an amazing track record, as they have been selling replacement windows, alongside other elements of a home, such as doors, since 1960. We entrusted this brand of windows for many reasons. While they serve both homeowners, and contractors, such as ourselves, they provide a consistency that is hard to beat. With over 50 years of experience, Harvey BP was the perfect person for the job, and they really did the incredible job that we had expected.

From the exterior of the home, bay windows really give an additional curb appeal unlike any other. While a bay window does look fantastic, these specific windows will have results that last a very long time. Because Harvey Building Products started on the East Coast, their products are built to withstand all elements. This is the perfect product to use in New England, as there are harsh winters and hot/humid summers. This makes for the perfectly comfortable, secure and energy efficient window. While a window is supposed to keep out the cold in the winter and keep the cold in, in the summer, these windows help by creating a true barrier between your home and the outside. This can help to cut down on many costs, including heat, AC and energy.
