New windows can help a property look more aesthetically pleasing while also providing greater comfort. Aside from your structure’s doors and construction material, its windows will often be what people pay attention to the most.
Fortunately, there are several different styles of windows and materials for frames available today, so you can select these according to your taste and budget. The team at Adelphia Exteriors has extensive experience with window installation services and can thus ensure this essential component of your home or office building is properly set up.
Types Of Residential Windows We Install
Adelphia Exteriors can install various types of residential windows, including single-hung and double-hung windows, accent windows, glass block windows, bay windows, and casement windows. Single-hung windows have an adjustable bottom sash (that moves up and down) and a fixed top sash, while double-hung windows have two operable sashes.
We also have experience handling many different types of frame materials, such as wood, aluminum, fiberglass, and vinyl, and we can install commercial windows. Whether you want new storefront windows, display windows, school windows, shutters, or residential windows, we’re here to efficiently install these items.
Our professionals can also offer recommendations for materials, colors, and styles if you’re unsure about what the right fit for your structure is. Be sure to always weigh the pros and cons of each type of window and frame material. For example, vinyl is typically inexpensive but is difficult to customize with paint. Meanwhile, aluminum is also affordable and more durable and strong. Fiberglass is one of the most expensive types of window frame materials but it’s also the most energy-efficient.
Wood is a strong aesthetic material but is not resilient to rain and other inclement weather. Wooden windows generally last significantly less than aluminum or vinyl windows, even with routine upkeep. Vinyl and metal windows are normally highly resistant to water damage and other types of damage, such as that caused by insects.
However, factors besides maintenance, such as warranties, a window’s thermal efficiency, and direct exposure to sunlight or intense climate, can also all impact the lifespan of a window. If you live in an area where natural disasters such as hurricanes occur frequently, it’s especially important for you to take regular care of your windows and replace them as soon as you notice that they begin to crack or warp. Vinyl windows are also typically more affordable than their wooden counterparts, so be sure to keep this in mind when searching for replacement windows.
Window Replacement Services
In addition to installing brand new windows, we can also replace old windows. This can help optimize your establishment’s overall energy efficiency by reducing infrared (IR) light, which can increase your home’s temperature. Common signs of outdated windows include warping, cracks, and glass condensation, so be sure to look out for these, especially if you have wooden window frames.
Drafts can easily enter your property if your windows are aging, especially during the wintertime. Depending on the amount and temperature of the air you wish to allow into your property and the overall look you’re interested in, you can choose either single-hung or double-hung windows (With the latter type of window, you can let cool air flow inward through the bottom sash and warm air flow outward through the top sash.).
Window replacement services can also help more natural light enter your property, reduce the level of noise from outside, and provide better insulation. Our contemporary windows include features like low-emissivity Low E-glass, which restricts the amount of ultraviolet (UV) light that streams through a structure.
Thus, your carpets and furniture can fade less. Given all of these improvements, your property’s overall value can also increase. Depending on your location and the types of windows you choose to have installed, you may even qualify for an energy-saving tax credit.
