3 Key Qualities of a Well-Designed Window

Replacement windows play an important role in maintaining the comfort of your home. They allow natural sunlight into a gloomy space and provide healthy, fresh air flow to your home. They also help control your heating and cooling costs that may potentially spike during extreme weather conditions. Thanks to new innovations, well-designed windows today are expected to last for a long time. If you’re wondering what’s behind this type of windows, here are the qualities you should look for.

3 Key Qualities of a Well-Designed Window

1. High Performance

A window can qualify as a high-performing component if it has undergone repeated testing during the development process. The materials that make up a high-performing window are carefully selected based on how well they stand against certain weather conditions. This is to ensure that the product will deliver impressive results when actually used by homeowners, whether they live in hot or cold climates. Some of the best-made windows are composed of hardware, glass and composite materials.

2. High-Quality Materials

Of course, a window can only be considered well-designed if the materials used are of super quality. Reputable window and door replacement contractors only offer windows that meet, and exceed, aesthetic appeal and function requirements of the strictest inspectors. Most of the time, low-emissivity (low-E) coatings are applied over the glass sections of windows. This is to keep heat transfer at a minimum, providing a more comfortable home.

3. A Complete System

A well-designed window has a complete system, meaning it pays equal attention to functionality and beauty. With wide selections of textures, materials, colors and styles, it’s easy to create a window that attracts the eye. However, this critical interior feature should also be able to prevent drafts and water leaks, improve energy efficiency and regulate ventilation. It’s also important that your windows can adequately diffuse heat and reflect light that passes through them.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
