In window replacement, any season is a great season to do it. The less time you waste, the sooner you can enjoy the practical benefits of this energy-efficient home project. But then again, you shouldn’t rush into things. Although it’s considerably less disruptive than other remodels, it nonetheless requires some serious thought to make it succeed.
To upgrade your windows this year, Dreamstyle Remodeling wants to share some of the hottest trends to facilitate your decision-making:
Energy Efficiency is Still Sexy
Sustainability has been a popular theme in window replacement in general, and that’s not going to change any time soon. In fact, appealing to the green factor is one of the right reasons to get new double hung windows. Their older counterparts inherently have drafty frames and sashes, leaking heat and offering little resistance to outdoor breezes.
Apart from advanced Low-E glass, composite materials make a sound purchase. An excellent case in point is Pella®’s composite window frame material. When it comes to insulation, this exclusive material is on par with wood, vinyl, and fiberglass. Also, its exceptional rigidity keeps it from expanding and contracting too much, allowing it to maintain its airtight seal without compromise.
Go Big or Go Home
Oversized windows have taken America by storm in 2016, and they wouldn’t run out of style in the coming years. Compared with regular-sized units, floor-to-ceiling windows make impressive accents. They have a knack for admitting plenty of natural light and providing sweeping views.
In this respect, Pella’s frame material is also a huge differentiator. Its incredible strength makes it possible for us to build narrow frames, which translates to more glass and view.
Details, Details, Details
Attention to detail separates windows with lasting beauty and those with short-lived charm. Grilles, interior-exterior color, and hardware pieces won’t go unnoticed. With plenty of custom options at your disposal, you should really sweat the small stuff to make your bay, bow, and casement windows stand out.
Trends make a great guide when designing windows, but many other factors go into the process. We serve homeowners in Albuquerque. Call Dreamstyle Remodeling today at (877) 721-1590 to schedule your free, in-home consultation.
