When it comes to big decisions about your home, it can easily become overwhelming. How do you decide where to start? You might begin with considering curb appeal, energy efficiency, longevity, or all three. Upgrading your windows addresses all of these concerns. But before you invest in new window installation, you’ll want to consider the following details.
The Features And Benefits Of Upgraded Windows
New windows not only make the exterior of your home more attractive—they can make your home safer, quieter, and more energy-efficient. When moving forward into window installation, you should first consider your priorities. Below are some qualities and resources to consider while choosing new windows. Note that these are not mutually exclusive, and there are window options that can cover multiple benefits.
- Impact Windows: Laminated glass is double-strength and can help protect against forced entry, bad weather, and even UV rays. Particularly strong windows can also stand against hurricane force winds—and in Baton Rouge and the rest of south Louisiana, that is often a concern. Impact Windows also help reduce noise to keep your home quieter as well as safer and can withstand the neighbor boy’s soccer ball as well as potential ne’er-do-wells.
- Security: Windows are often the most accessible entry point for those looking to do damage to your home and family. But who wants a house without any windows? Thankfully there are choices you can make to increase the safety and security of your home. For example, vinyl windows can deter burglars with a vent latch to prevent them from being opened past a certain point. Combined with impact-resistance, your home’s weakest points will be reinforced as much as possible.
- Wood Windows: Wood windows are arguably the most classic-looking and beautiful but also potentially the most high maintenance. Our specially treated wood window frames can prevent damage from rot, water damage, and termites. Using Auralast technology, sealant isn’t just dripped on, but permeates to the core promising years of protection against rot and insect damage and delivering long-lasting, natural beauty that can complement many styles of homes.
- Energy Star Rated Windows: This is a logo you might see often. A certified Energy Star Partner can only manufacture these windows. Energy Star Rated windows are tested, certified, and verified by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC). The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires these windows to meet strict energy efficiency guidelines. With the right windows, your home will stay cooler, and your floors, furniture, and artwork will be less at risk of fading.
