5 Tips to Help You Buy the Best Replacement Window

Wooden window shutter is essential in beautifying a home. However, it can be damage by some factors. To restore its beauty, you can paint it. Here are steps that may guide you.

1. Take off the shutters.
Remove the shutters from the windows. Put them in a safe, shady place like garage or patio. Avoid painting when there is direct sunlight. This will cause irregular dryness of paint. Also, keep the place clean by covering it with scrap papers.

2. Polish the old paint.
Use a knife to remove any old paint. Make sure that you will gently do this so that the shutter will not be damaged completely. You can do this within 30 minutes.

5. Do the painting.
Before starting, you must see to it that no direct sunlight and strong winds can disturb you. Apply first the first coating. Make it light so that the second coat will be noticeable. Spray paints or paint guns are available. You can use them so that the result will be perfectly fine. Let it dry before putting it back to its position.

Now you are done with your wooden window shutter. Put it now to its place to create a new look in your house.

Aluminum Replacement Windows

Double Pane Windows and Argon Gas

Single glazed refers to windows that are made up of a single sheet of glass and this was once, until fairly recently, the only available option to architects, house builders and homeowners. The single glazed windows were flagged up as an issue as soon as global warming became came to the media's attention, at the same time as discussions around ways to reduce the human impact on climate change. The single pane of glass makes these windows instantly unsuitable for externally facing windows due to their inability to retain heat and to keep out the cold but this doesn't mean that all houses have automatically been converted to a more efficient solution, but they really should have been.

Modern glazing is not expensive when you consider a number of things, firstly that you will be able to turn your heating down in the winter and need to have it on for less hours because double glazing will instantly make it more efficient. Aside from this, a double glazed house is far more attractive to potential buyers or tenants if you are looking to sell and rent because they are more secure, warmer and enjoy lower bills. So when you consider single glazed versus double glazed, there really is no competition, double glazed windows wins hands down.

Single Glazing Versus Double Glazing

If a double pane window is better than a single pane window, should I use triple pane windows?

This is getting to be an appropriate question, "Should a window retrofit use triple pane windows?" The vinyl window manufactures are getting so good at making energy-efficient windows, it doesn't take much for them to throw in another pane of glass or two. Wonder if we will be considering quad pane windows one of these days?

If you were really interested in saving energy and wanted the best wall construction possible, you wouldn't put a window in the wall to begin with. A wall without a window has a greater R-value and fewer air leaks. We know how to build a wall that will separate the outdoors from the indoors - what we don't know how to do is build a wall that will keep the outdoors out and the indoors in and still let light through. Come to think about it, our need to let light in is at the root of the problem.

Actually, letting light in is just one of the needed benefits of having a wall with a window. Being able to see through the wall is another benefit and being able to get out of a room during a fire is another. Energy wise, a door is not much better than a window, so I guess windows are here to stay.

The Space Between the Glass:

A window with more than one piece of glass is a real blessing for saving energy and helping with indoor comfort. There is more to a vinyl window than just several panes of glass. Two panes of glass also come with an insulated frame, mounting flange, and better air seals. But the most important part is not the glass, but the space between the glass. Considering window performance, it's the space between the glass that makes the difference.

The Future of Windows:

In the near future, the efficiency ratings of windows will continue to drop. The only way a window manufacturer will be able to reach the energy efficiency ratings of the future is with three or four panes of glass. If you are seriously considering a retrofit window project, you should select the best window for your climate and that means the window will have three panes of glass.

Yes, three pane windows are more expensive than two pane windows. Shop around for the best U-factor and the best SHGC for the best price. If finances are the deciding factor, it will be better to install two triple pane windows than three double pane windows. Stick with the triple pane window and you will have greater energy efficiency for the future which will save you money for years to come.

P.S. Buy your windows and window installation from a local glass company or a licensed general contractor. Please don't buy our windows from a super salesman at a home show that has all the financing you need and a worthless lifetime warranty to go with it.

Thanks for stopping by, please come back soon, but I won't leave the light on for you...
