Wooden Windows - When To Repair Or Replace
If anyone doubts that a small business can grow to international prominence, he need only look to the Andersen Corporation. The growth of the company is a classic example of entrepreneurial success.
In 1903, a Danish immigrant, Hans Andersen, founded the company as a lumberyard in Hudson, Wisconsin. A small town near Minneapolis, Hudson received logs on the St. Croix River.
Today, Andersen is the country's largest manufacturer of wood windows, patio doors and storm doors. Its sales top $1 billion annually and Andersen employs more than 10,000 employees in the U.S., Mexico, and Canada. Its subsidiaries include such respected brands as Eagle Windows, EMCO, and American Craftsman.
Andersen's manufacturing policies limit greenhouse gas emissions and produce energy-efficient products. What's more, the company's commitment to consumer education has reinforced its position as a green company. Through Andersen's websites, media messages, and advertising campaigns, Andersen consistently disseminates Energy Star information.
Andersen has also participated in another of the EPA's programs--the National Environmental Achievement Track program--not just once but three times, proving that a company can be simultaneously successful and green.
The History of Vinyl Windows
I have been answering the same question over and over again on Home Improvement web-sites, which window is the best. Most window buyers have no idea how to rate a window company.
Rating windows is not as easy as saying one is better than the other one. Consider these things when rating windows:
Looks- which window looks the best to you the owner. Does the window look good viewed from both the inside and the outside?
Function- does the window meet your needs? Do you want the sashes to tilt in for easy cleaning?
Customer service- will the company handle your window issues in a timely manner. If one of your sashes (glass) breaks how long will it take to get you a new one.
You should check the BBB reports, and several of the other on-line complaint databases to get a feel for what people are saying about a company.
To start, make a list of what your needs are and what options you require then start shopping.
Wooden Windows And Doors - The Many Advantages
A single pane of glass used to be the only option for windows, but not anymore. Double pane windows have become very popular in new construction and as replacement windows over the years, due to their energy efficient properties and other advantages, such as sound reduction. Double pane windows are very good insulators, keeping warm air in and cold air out. What makes them such effective insulators? Part of the answer lies not in the glass itself, but in the space in between the two panes.
The space between the two panes in a double pane window is usually about half an inch wide, and is typically filled with argon or another inert gas. These gases are nontoxic, nonreactive, clear, and odorless. Argon is also inexpensive, making it a common choice for this purpose.
Inert gasses are heavier and denser than air, so their molecules do not move as easily. Having inert gasses between the panes of glass makes it more difficult for the warmer inside air to pass through the glass to the colder outside. This helps keep warm air from escaping during the cold winter months, saving on heating costs.
With lower heat loss, the window's R-Value, which measures its resistance to heat flow, is increased. A higher R-Value means a more energy-efficient window. A single pane glazed window generally has an R-Value of about 0.85, and a double pane glazed window without an argon fill may have an R-Value between 1.5 and 2.0. A double pane glazed window with an argon gas fill is considerably more energy efficient, as seen by its higher R-Value, between 2.7 and 3.6.
