Why would you want to replace that big, beautiful picture window? After all, the view it frames gets rave reviews. And then there’s all the sunlight it lets in that makes the room so bright and cheery.
But with that sunlight comes the UV rays that bring extra heat into the room so the A/C has to work harder to keep it all comfortable (if you have A/C!) And don’t even begin to think about how those same UV rays attack your furnishings causing fabrics to fade and turn brittle while discoloring your floors.
What are picture windows?
Picture windows are a large, unbroken expanse of glass that allows light to flood into a room. The name literally comes from the “picture” of the exterior that is created by the “frame” of the picture window. Picture windows are particularly popular for use in living rooms and great rooms. Generally, picture windows do not open for ventilation.
Picture windows give you a wonderful view of the outdoors, but they’re also a huge opening in your walls that provides only minimal protection from outside heat intrusion in the summer and interior heat loss during the winter. If you don’t have a new, dual pane picture window with all the latest engineering enhancements, your old window is costing you money – and comfort!
Looking to replace your fiberglass windows?
Fiberglass-framed windows are durable and highly energy efficient. They are a great choice for areas that get a lot of sun exposure because they can dissipate heat so it is not transferred inside the home. (Yes, it’s not just that glass surface that leaks heat….) One of the advantages of fiberglass construction over vinyl is that it can be painted any color. This can be added by you, the homeowner, or you can select from a wide variety of factory-applied paint colors. A very popular option with fiberglass is wood veneer surfacing on the inside of the window. This combination provides the all-weather durability of fiberglass on the exterior with the rich, warm look and feel of wood on the inside.
Be sure to ask about this frame-construction option during your free, in-home consultation with one of our professional, window replacement specialists.
Our window replacement craftsmen are factory-trained to install fiberglass-framed windows and we back their work with a lifetime warranty. We’ll even come inspect it one year later, if you desire. All fiberglass window products come with lifetime warranties from the manufacturer and are made in the USA.
