Bring Life to an Aging Exterior
With many older homes, the original company that provided the windows is no longer in business. So as springs, latches and parts break, there is nowhere to go for replacement parts. Plus the sills and frames can sag and rot, causing the exterior to have a drab, worn down appearance. New windows from a reputable company, like Pella, can renew the exterior of the home and also provide a long-term warranty on replacement parts as the years go by.
Increase Energy Efficiency
According to the national Remodeling 2013 Cost vs. Value Report, you can recoup about 75% of your investment by replacing your windows. On top of this is the monthly savings you’ll experience in your heating and cooling bill. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, homes in our region can save up to $213 a year by replacing single pane windows with ENERGY STAR models. As a Pella Certified Contractor, we use high quality windows that are 74% more energy efficient than a single pane wood window.
Also, most contractors fit windows inside an existing frame during replacement. This reduces the amount of glass and produces less light transmission. Instead, we use a new construction-style window to increase light transmission and efficiency.
