Do you have old windows that need replacement? Is your contractor quoting a very high price to replace your window? If you are one of those who are facing this problem, you will be glad to know that hurricane windows produce as much energy saving as the full replacement windows and they cost less than 30 percent of the price. Also, they reduce the long-term maintenance need of your house.
Many of the technologies used in window replacements, such as low-emissivity glass that prevent heat from entering and escaping from the house and weatherproof gasket to stop drafts, are a standard in new impact resistant windows. Also, these windows keep the water and other corroding elements away from the window sill, which prevents rot in the most rot-prone area of the home.
The existing window of your house may be several years old, which means that their color has faded, the rubber which holds the glass has dried, and the window panes rattle every time the strong winds blow. If you are looking for an effective solution for your problems, here are a few recommendations for you. You can use any of the following recommendations to upgrade the effectiveness and appearance of your existing storm windows.
These windows use the same format as the traditional windows you have in your home. They come with a screen and two glass panes; the panes are set in their track so you can raise it and lower it with the seasons. Also, they can easily be removed for cleaning. These windows are factory made to suit the window size opening. Modern triple track windows are more efficient when compared to aging units and are less noticeable because they can be ordered to match the decor of your home.
Another variety of windows commonly used in the residential setting is double –track storm windows. These factory-made impact windows also come with a screen and two panes that can be easily positioned up or down, depending on your requirement. However, these three components operate only on just 2 channels. Instead of sliding the parts up and down, they can easily remove the screen from the channel, then rearrange the panes and reinstall them. Rearranging the panes will take a little more effort when the season changes, but this makes the window thinner and therefore less noticeable.
Wood Exterior Storms
These are single pane windows that come with a wooden frame that can be painted to suit the decor of your room. These windows typically hang from hooks and are mounted on the window trim that looks nearly invisible. When placing an order for these windows, it is a good idea to order a few screens when placing your order so you can easily swap them onto the existing windows occasionally to allow light and fresh air to enter your home.
Some households prefer these windows because they cover the existing windows from inside. It helps in maintaining the antique look of your old house. These factory-made storms are made using thin aluminum that can be painted to suit your interiors. When these windows are installed correctly, they will press tightly inside the existing window opening. These windows may not protect the window sill from damage, but they have a better look than the plastic window insulation kits.
