4 Important Things You Need to Know About Old Windows

Aside from your home’s shape and layout, your windows are one of the most important factors in your home’s architectural design.

Old Windows

Here are four things you need to know about old windows:

  1. Old Windows Do Not Have the Advantage of Advanced Window Glass – There have been many advances in window glass technology in the past few decades. Single-pane glass, like the ones you can find in many old windows, are not that energy-efficient. This can lead to higher energy bills and less comfort. Fortunately, all of our windows comes standard with our energy-saving High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages. Our products can save you up to 25% on your energy bills.

  2. Old Windows Can Become Hard to Open – Old windows can become hard to operate because of the age of their moving parts. In some cases, finding parts or service for broken down windows can also be difficult because of the lack of manufacturers and craftsmen. This won’t be the case when you install our double hung windows in Orange County, CA. We handle everything in the window process and provide you with whatever parts or repairs that you need.

  3. Old Windows Are More Susceptible to Weather Damage – The older an object becomes, the more vulnerable it is to damage. Even if you constantly maintain and repair an old window, the costs will eventually add up. It makes more sense to choose a window replacement. We use our innovative Fibrex® material on all of our window frames. Fibrex will not crack, chip, peel, warp, peel, corrode, or blister. It can stand against any kind of weather.

  4. Old Windows Are Part of Your Home’s Style – Old windows can have designs and grille patterns that are no longer in use. This makes your home look distinctive. We can capture your windows’ unique designs and styles with our products. We can custom manufacture a window of any shape and size, and we can design custom grille patterns.
