With plenty of product options and design possibilities, buying new windows today is both exciting and overwhelming. To help facilitate your decision-making, draw inspiration from the latest trends:
Energy Efficiency Remains a Big Deal
Energy efficiency is still the number one consideration when choosing replacement windows in 2017, just like in the previous years. High-efficiency glass units reduce unwanted heat gain, make your wall openings tightly sealed, prevent conditioned, indoor air from escaping, and admit natural light.
At Dreamstyle Remodeling, we chose to carry Renewal by Andersen®’s custom products. Our partnership with this trusted brand gives us the exclusive privilege to offer Fibrex®, which combines wood’s rigidity and stability and vinyl’s moisture repellence. Compared with aluminum-framed products, Fibrex-made units insulate 700 times better.
Moreover, Renewal by Andersen is home to the most innovative glazing technologies. Their most efficient Low-E4® glass package, the SmartSun™, blocks 72% and 95% of solar heat and ultraviolet radiation, respectively, while letting 65% of sunlight through.
Big Units Are Still Hot
Large windows are becoming synonymous with traditional and contemporary homes these days. Oversized units let you hit two birds with one stone: capturing sweeping views and maximizing daylighting.
If regular-sized double hung windows are emblematic of your home’s character, installing a bow or a bay is the solution. Bows and bays are large projection units that could comprise multiple double hungs, solving your aesthetic and functional goals.
Small Details Matter a Lot
While the window replacements center on the glazing and frame material, hardware design is equally important in the grand scheme of things. The perfect finish could tie your glass unit with other design elements in the room for visual harmony.
Our Estate™ collection gives you considerable latitude to enhance the look of your sliding and casement windows. It consists of eight distinctive, metallic hardware finishes, featuring two varieties of brass, chrome, nickel, and bronze. Most of them have a special coating for tarnish and corrosion protection. Our bronze options come with a “living” patina that grows more gorgeous with time and use.
Let Dreamstyle Remodeling help you outfit your home with high-quality windows that can add tremendous value to your Albuquerque home. Call us now at (877) 721-1590 to schedule your free, in-home consultation and learn more about our customization options.
