ENERGY EFFICIENT WINDOWS AND PRICE

Category : Replacement Windows

A respected builder I know told me how he learned the true value of energy-efficient windows. In the course of his business, he installed a builder’s line of windows from a well-known manufacturer in every house he built. He felt good about his choice; he purchased the windows from a manufacturer with a reputation for quality, but they cost 10% less than the same manufacturer’s standard line of low-E, argon-filled windows, saving him about $600 per house. He even put them in his own new home. The first winter he lived there, though, he noticed that the windows seemed cold. Only then did he compare the U-values with the same manufacturer’s standard windows. He did some math and concluded that his windows were costing him about $150 a year. By his estimation, the windows did not meet his expectations. Too often in Colorado I see a homeowner save money on a window replacement project, only to have the need for new windows again in 5-10 years. Value is important when choosing windows and doors, that is why we use only the best products for our customers. We will make sure your job fits in your budget, even if the job is only one or two windows to start. Patio doors too. Some companies expect you to replace all the windows and doors at once. We operate differently. Small jobs to big jobs, whatever our customers prefer is what we will do! So if a homeowner wants proven, energy saving windows with expert installation, we are here to serve. We always say, “QUALITY far outlasts the MEMORY of cost!”
