9 Reasons to Use Fiberglass Replacement Windows

Basement windows are an essential component of any usable, sub-surface area. They allow light and air into the space, giving a basement much more comfort and warmth. They will also be required by most building departments when you finish your basement.When you have windows for your basement, you often have window wells. These can be a source of water getting into your home, so you should always use window well covers. They will divert the flow of water when it rains, so that it won't build up at the bottom of the window well, seeping in through the framing of the window.For this reason, you should always keep your windows in good repair and make sure they seal tightly when closed. Furthermore, make sure the ground around the window well is sloped away from the house and does not funnel water toward the window. Windows are an essential component of any usable, sub-surface area.

Safety is a number one concern when you decide to replace window sills and windows. Remember, a glass window can be easily broken by a burglar's foot, fist, or object.Being in the basement, it can be hard to hear. The solution is to reinforce the windows, so they are safe, or by using glass bricks to build them. There are other solutions, as well, such as the use of window coverings, or the use of a cross brace.Basement windows should always be locked from the inside. You don't want burglars entering your home through the basement. There are requirements that must be adhered to when installing these windows. There is an International Residential Code which says that any windows installed in the basement must be a minimum width of 24 inches and a minimum height of 20 inches. This is to allow a viable escape exit in the case of a fire, or a way for firefighters to enter a residence if need be. It is different for each municipality, but at least one window in a basement is generally required. If a basement is used as a living space, then it would be wise to have as many as possible.Windows are also a source of cold air leaking into the home. To prevent higher heating bills, make sure the windows are sealed and insulated. Double-pane glass is a good idea. Anderson Windows And Doors

Vinyl Replacement Window Companies, Which One and How Do You Rate Them?

I have written a number of vinyl replacement windows compare or comparison-based reviews. Each time I consider various aspects of the subject matter. Today I have picked some few brands that I want us to look at. I have not limited this article to only these so do read right to the end.

You can buy the Milgard Tuscany vinyl windows for your residential home. I have found them to work great except that they do not tilt-in especially this single hung one. This really makes it difficult when trying to clean them. Despite all that when I considered the other brands like Amerimax, Atrium and Simonton - Milgard was the cheapest of them all.

As for Pella - this is a great company with great windows buy I am not impressed with their Pella ThermaStar. In my opinion they are low-grade vinyl windows for those people looking for a cheap price.

When looking at vinyl replacement windows - compare various things not just the price. You need to look at the service, durability, functionality and proximity of the supplier.

Vinyl Windows - Benefits Of Vinyl Windows

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...
