Top 3 Things That Make Up a Great Window Product

For those investing in a window replacement for the first time, the project can be a bit overwhelming. After all, windows come in all shapes, materials and sizes that it’s difficult to tell which ones are high-quality or not. But Renewal by Andersen® of Sacramento, the trusted source of high-quality double-hung windows in the area, can make it easier for you. Here are the things that separate a great window product from a not-so-great one:



1. Framing Material. We’ve mentioned that windows are available in different materials. These include wood, which offers great insulating properties and a warm, natural look to your home, and vinyl, which is cost-effective and low-maintenance. But they’re not without downsides. Wood is prone to rot and mold, requiring constant maintenance, while vinyl tends to warp over time.

You might want to choose a better alternative instead–Fibrex® composite that’s exclusive to Renewal by Andersen® windows. This material offers the best features of wood and vinyl, such as extreme durability, superior insulating value and low-maintenance performance, but without the drawbacks. Fibrex, in fact, is durable enough to be shaped into any window style and even allows for ones with slimmer frames and a larger glass area.

2. Glass Option. Most windows today are double-glazed, with an inert gas fill between the two panes for good insulation. Renewal by Andersen® of Sacramento takes this to another level. Our replacement windows use High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass with an argon gas fill, ensuring reliable thermal performance. By reducing heat transfer into your home, they help maintain a cooler and more comfortable indoor environment–minus the high cooling bills.

3. Signature Installation Service. Of course, a great window product isn’t limited to the material and glass it uses. You’ll need to take into account how it’s installed, as well. Renewal by Andersen® of Sacramento has a proven window replacement process. From the initial in-home consultation to post-window installation cleanup, we make the experience smoother and easier for homeowners. We don’t take shortcuts–only superior workmanship that leaves no room for mistakes.
