Why replace your windows?

Energy Efficiency: We live in a region with a mild climate, but your house is still perpetually cold in the winter and warm in the summer. You may have spent a good deal of money on a new heating and cooling system and want to maximize its efficiency while taming skyrocketing utility bills. Single-pane and even old dual-pane Aluminum windows are notoriously energy inefficient, allowing air to circulate between the outside and the inside of the house. Vinyl dual-pane windows also offer sun protection. Many companies apply a "low-e" coating to the glass, which blocks out a significant percentage of the sun's harmful UV rays. This protects your carpets, hardwood floors, your drapes and furniture, and most importantly, your family from sun exposure.

Security: The locks on the old aluminum windows are flimsy and would be easy for a burglar to break. Safety is another reason to take the vinyl window plunge. The old windows have flimsy or non-existent locks. New vinyl replacement windows offer solid and secure locking mechanisms and burglar-proof features.

Noise Reduction:
Another key reason to replace the aluminum frame windows is the noise factor. Your street is busy with commuter traffic in the mornings and afternoons and the traffic noise can be very loud. You may have noisy neighbors on both sides of the house. Dual-pane windows provide a significant noise barrier that practically eliminate outside sound.tures.

Of course, aesthetics is a major reason to consider vinyl replacement windows. They simply look better. In many cases, your old window frames are a hodge-podge of silver and black.  Companies offer a variety of styles, configurations and looks in either white or almond vinyl.  Finally, vinyl windows can add to your home's resale value. Unattractive windows can be a deal-killer for even the most beautiful home. Figures vary, but some studies show that new vinyl windows can add $20,000 - $30,000 to a home's asking price.
