Window Replacement Part 2: Qualities to Look For

When it comes to windows, rigidity is about staying weathertight for as long as possible despite extreme temperature variations. Materials tend to expand when the weather is warm and contract when it’s cold. If your chosen material for window replacement isn’t rigid enough, it could crack as a result of the constant cycle of temperature changes.

Window Replacement Part 2 Qualities To Look For

Read on as we discuss the main qualities you need to look for in a window to prevent these issues:

Energy Efficiency

Reducing the transfer of heat from one place to another is one of the main roles of windows. The best way to determine the energy efficiency of a window is to review the ENERGY STAR® label, which tells you whether the product is designed for your climate. In addition, you should find out how good of an insulator the frame and sash material is.

Decay-Resistant

Products with immunity to decay are generally low-maintenance. They don’t need regular scraping and repainting because moisture has no negative effect on them. To minimize the upkeep of your windows, choose a material that doesn’t rot for window replacement.

Customizable

With the right combination of design elements, your windows can add rich character to your home. Adorning them with the right grille pattern can help maintain the architectural integrity of your home. The right color can either make them mesh with the rest of your space or pop. Matching the existing hardware finish in the room will tie design elements together and create a sense of harmony.
