Replacing windows and doors is one of the most popular home improvement projects in Western Washington, and for good reason. It produces dramatic results from a modest investment; no other element impacts a room’s feel as dramatically as its windows. They frame natures light and add a distinctive personality to each room. New windows update your home and increase street appeal. Here are the most popular reasons for replacing your windows.
Windows account for about a third of your total heat loss in a home. So, it’s important your windows perform well. We carry Energy Star program certified windows. This means they’re over 40% more energy efficient than required under most building codes. When you increase your home’s energy efficiency you not only save money, you save the environment too. A report published by Cardinal Glass estimated that you can save up to $324.00 a year on your heating bill by installing new high performance windows with Low-E2 glass (based on a 2500 square foot home).
There are a variety of materials available in the market today. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages.

While we are not limited to any particular brands, we do try to choose those that give the best value to our clients and meet their design and aesthetic needs. Your design consultant will work carefully to help you choose the window that best meets your individual needs and budget.
