Generally companies do not sell the same identical window. Windows vary dramatically in design, structural strength, and performance ratings (depending on the glass option used). The customer should always compare windows by the performance rating labels. Keep in mind the most important rating here in the south is the solar heat gain because of our extreme summer heat.

What kind of damage will the installation cause in Brick/Vinyl siding/ Stucco?
Usually, there is very minimal damage if any. The way your old windows are removed, makes all the difference. We actually breakdown your old windows in the openings and collapse them. Then we remove them piece by piece eliminating most of the risk of damage.
Both of the Low-E glass options we offer will make a significant difference in your homes energy consumption. The Low-E 23 has a better Solar Heat Gain rating than the Low-E 36 and will reflect more heat. The only noticeable difference between the two is the Low-E 23 is darker in color. Either one will perform significantly better than ordinary clear glass.

Yes, it will increase the value of your home. Usually the cost of the windows is easily regained if you were to sell your home.
If I get an estimate, but I’m not ready for the windows, do I have to get another estimate when I’m ready to order?

When I get an estimate do I have to order all the windows at once?
No you do not have to order all your windows at once. You can order your new windows a few at a time as you are ready for them.
Do windows cause condensation?
Condensation buildup on window surfaces is commonly thought to be a leak in the windows. Usually not the case, the moist warm air inside your home will condense when comes in contact with an object that is significantly colder in temperature. Older windows that are non-insulated or have an aluminum frames will usually have more condensation or sweating than a warmer window that has a vinyl frame or insulated Low-E glass.
