If you are dreading the yearly cleaning, scraping, repairing and repainting of your windows this year maybe it’s time to have maintenance free windows installed. Maintenance free windows decrease the amount of work you have to spend on them to keep them looking good, meaning you get to spend more time doing activities you enjoy in your free time.
Maintenance Free Window Glass
Have you ever stared at your dirty windows wishing they would stay clean or would magically clean themselves? Well, this is one wish that has come true for many homeowners.
With our high-performance Low-E4 glass homeowners hardly have to lift a finger to keep the outside of their windows clean anymore. This is because our new Low-E4 glass is designed to use the elements outside to clean themselves.
When they become dirty, the titanium dioxide exterior coating releases the dirt from the glass when the sun shines on the coating. The dirt is then simply washed away with the next rain. The titanium dioxide coating also makes the glass dry faster when it’s wet, as well as a 99% decrease in water spots on the window.
Maintenance Free Window Screens
The type of screen you use in your home makes a big difference in the look of your windows and the maintenance you will have to perform. TruScene High Transparency Insect Screens are nearly invisible giving you a better view out your windows; they also let in more light, and increase the ventilation to your home.
Maintenance wise, these screens have smaller openings which prevents smaller insects from getting through or getting trapped in them. With fewer trapped insects, less cleaning is required to keep your screens looking good.
The screen is also made with micro-fine stainless steel mesh that doesn’t tear as easy as regular screen material.
Maintenance Free Window Frame
The key to maintenance free window frames is using a material that is strong and requires little attention. It was thought that vinyl was this material because it doesn’t require the attention of sanding and painting that wood does. Vinyl kept looking good longer than any of the other materials on the market; until it showed its weakness was the sun.
Once vinyl heats up in the sun it gets soft and warps. This warping is worse than having to repaint wood every couple of years, because once vinyl warps it has to be replaced, it cannot be painted over or fixed.
Fibrex on the other hand doesn’t warp and has the same maintenance free characteristic as vinyl does. Fibrex is made from a special combination of a thermoplastic polymer and recycled wood fibers, so it is resistant to weather, mold, and mildew.
Best of all Fibrex doesn’t need to be sanded, scrapped or repainted to keep it looking good.
So if you are ready to spend more time enjoying yourself instead of working on your windows, it’s time to look into maintenance free windows.
