Your windows do more than just make your facade look pretty. They are also responsible for much of the natural ventilation in your home, and their energy efficiency (or lack thereof) plays a huge role in your monthly energy costs. Ultimately, your windows are also responsible for protecting your interior from weather damage.
So how do you ensure the continuing resilience of your windows? Renewal by Andersen® of Kentucky explains how in the context of window installation:
Know When to Replace Them
A window on its last legs won’t be up to the task of bearing the brunt of adverse weather. Do a routine check of all of your windows and determine if they’re in need of replacing. If a window is letting a draft into your room, or you see cracking and rotting, it’s time to replace it.
Pick a Sturdy Window Design
The design of your windows will determine how well they stand up to bad weather. Pick a window design known for durability, such as double hung windows. Not only do double hung windows boast a sturdy design, they are also very airtight compared to other styles. This means you won’t have to worry about drafts or precious warm air escaping.
Consider the Window Frame
The framing of the actual window is more than just an aesthetic piece; it’s what’s keeping the window together. Your choice of windows should feature sturdy framing.
Our casement windows are built with a very sturdy window frame, whose tall and low profile still allows ample daylight into your rooms. Casement windows are universal, making them great for both traditional and contemporary homes.
Keep in mind that a window is only as good as the quality of the installation. For more information, call us at (270) 215-5825. We install windows for homeowners throughout Louisville, KY.
