Did you know?
Using a Low-E coating on your glazing can do two different things: keep heat inside in the winter, and stop unwanted heat gain in the summer. Giving you savings in energy costs, a payback on your investment, a more comfortable environment to live in, and add resale value to your home.

Fixed Sash: Or “balanced sash” is a non-operating window built to look like, and appear the same if placed beside an operable window to give an overall pleasing uniform look.
Hopper: Window with sash that swings inward from the top, typical in basements, used mostly for bedrooms giving the largest clear unobstructed opening of any window type to meet building code fire exit requirements.

Preserve Protective Film
We use Preserve Protective Film on nearly all of our windows. This is a heavy factory-applied peel and stick film on the glass, to protect from damage, scratches, paint, stucco and drywall mud. Home builders say it takes 4 to 6 hours to clean windows on a house costing $300 to $400 and scratching can occur. Also if left on too long chemicals in these products can etch permanently into glass. Preserve Protective Film eliminates this issue. Once project is complete pull film off and discard. No need to even clean window glass at all.

How your windows and doors appear and how balanced and aesthetically pleasing they are can make a huge difference in the real value of your home and can reflect your personality and the character of you and your home.
