You may not realize it, but your windows are one of your home’s most important features. Not only do they have a big impact on your property’s curb appeal, but they also affect how energy efficient your home is.
There are several reasons for this: first of all, the quality of your windows will help prevent energy from leaking in or out of your home.
Secondly, by bringing in natural light, your windows help reduce your reliance on artificial light, thereby reducing your energy use further. With that in mind, if your existing windows begin to show wear and tear or are no longer as efficient as they once were, you may need to consider replacing them.
Installing Replacement Windows
If you need to replace your existing windows, then the following are some factors you’ll want to take into consideration when choosing new replacement windows:
- They need to fit your home’s design. – You’ll want to choose replacement windows that compliment your home’s existing style. If they clash with your home’s design, they will hurt your curb appeal.
- They need to last a long time. – Windows built with high-quality materials should last a long time. If they aren’t, they will experience more wear and tear more quickly, which can compromise their efficiency, security, safety, and function — not to mention visual appeal.
- They need to be energy efficient. – Make sure the window is built using insulating materials and that the glass is rated by Energy Star to ensure proper energy efficiency.
- They need to be easy to operate. – If you’re planning to install windows that can open (whether up and down or side-to-side), make sure the replacement window is easy and safe to operate.
- They need to be secure. – Any window that opens up needs to have a high-quality locking mechanism that makes it easy to lock, keeping your home safe and secure.
Armorvue Replacement Windows
Our windows are built using high-quality insulating materials (such as foam core) and Energy Star labeled glass to help ensure their energy efficiency. We carry two main lines of windows: our Platinum Series windows and our Gold Series windows. We also offer a wide range of different types of windows that can be customized in a variety of ways to fit your unique replacement needs.
The following are a few of the types of replacement windows that we offer here at Armorvue:
Double hung windows are more traditional in that they feature two sashes. Our double hung windows have operating sashes that allow you to open both the top and the bottom parts of the window. They also feature tilt-in sashes, which make the exterior glass easy to clean.
Casement windows are windows that are attached to the frame by the side using hinges. They can be installed by themselves or paired in twos. They’re easy to clean and are a great way to bring in fresh air to the home. They’re typically bigger than double hung windows.
Awning windows are similar to casement windows except that they are hinged at the top and open outward from the bottom. They are often installed on higher walls to provide privacy or above other types of windows to help improve the view and airflow.
Slider windows are popular because they provide an unobstructed view of the outside and are easier to open than double hung windows since they can be slid open instead of lifted open. Our slider windows are unique in that they have all the benefits of a typical slider window but are also designed using swing-in sashes to make cleaning easier.
Bow windows bring in a ton of sunlight and offer a great view as a result of being a collection of four to five windows all installed next to each other. The structure is curved as well, thereby creating a rounded appearance that can boost your curb appeal. Bow windows are often used in the living room and dining room spaces, but can also be wrapped around the corner of a building.
Bay windows are similar to bow windows. The major difference is that they usually only consist of three windows — a static central window and two smaller side windows. Bay windows tend to protrude farther from the wall as well.
The main purpose of a garden window is to improve your home’s visual appeal. They stick out from the exterior and typically provide shelf space within the window that you can use to display things like potted plants. Our garden windows are designed using trapezoidal operating casement windows and PVC-coated shelves.
Armorvue can produce a window to fit any shape or size area that you need. Create a unique custom sized window for your home, with a shaped window.
An inside tilting hopper window is a favorite among homeowners for small spaces like the basement, laundry room, or bathroom.
Glass block windows can add privacy and safety to bathrooms or basement areas while still providing some natural light and they’re available with or without optional vents.
