When it comes to resilient home design, the proper choice of window matters. Not all sustainable products are durable enough to withstand the rigors of nature for decades and keep a house livable during extreme weather.
A window replacement is no easy task. Even when you hire a reputable contractor for the job, you may be asked to do your part in the project for it to be successful. That would mean preparing your home prior to the crew coming over on installation day. Today, Renewal by Andersen® of Denver focuses on the important things you need to do to ensure there willl be no complications during the process.
Off-the-shelf windows are a good choice for a dream home you’re planning to build. Most of them bear the ENERGY STAR® seal, meeting the energy-efficiency requirements in your climate zone.
The ENERGY STAR® label is one of the first things you should look for when buying window systems. They tell you about the energy-performance ratings of the particular unit. Provided by the National Fenestration Rating Council, they indicate how good the window is at insulating and reflecting unwanted solar heat.
If you’ve been searching around for replacement windows, you may already have seen the term “low emissivity” or “Low-E”. Glass packages with this feature offer several benefits. In this blog, Renewal by Andersen® of Denver takes a look at the benefits from these glass packages, especially our own High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass.
