Window replacement is a big undertaking, and a lot of homeowners really question whether or not the process is worth it. The entire process from order to installation takes around six weeks, and we understand the frustrations that can come with any large-scale project like this. So, is a window replacement really worth it?
New Windows Provide a Lot of Benefits
- Curb Appeal
- Added Security and Safety
- Noise Control
- Added Value To Your Home
- Reduced Energy Bills
If you’re selling your house or just want to help up the value of your home, new windows are an easy way to do it! Older windows also become less secure and energy-efficient. At the end of the day, new windows can do a lot for a home, and it’s generally worth it to spend the time and money on quality replacements that will last for years and years to come.

How Energy-efficient Windows Work
There are different aspects to EE windows that work to help lower your energy costs.
Low-E glass has a microscopic coating that allows short rays in (warmth during the winter) while reflecting radiation long waves (heat in the summer). It works year-round to help you save based on the season.
Another option is the warm-edge spacer system. A spacer system is a component that separates glass layers, and it has a remarkable impact on the energy efficiency of the entire unit. A traditional spacer system can increase heat loss and cause condensation to form on the edge of the glass.
Our warm-edge spacer is designed to block the path of escaping heat far more effectively, reducing condensations on winter glass. Non-conductive edges eliminate glass-to-metal contact and contribute to a reduction of edge-of-glass temperatures.
Spacers can also be filled with Argon to further help insulation with your windows. Argon is a colorless, odorless, non-reactive gas and is the third most prevalent gas in the atmosphere, and its low thermal conductivity and high density make it an ideal insulating agent.
