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.

"I can't say enough about Renewal by Andersen. From our initial sit down with the salesman to the final touches being put on our new windows, the whole experience was great! The windows look amazing & the installers were very careful to keep everything clean & cause minimal disruption in my home. Yes, they may be a little expensive, but you pay for what you get. These are quality windows installed by trained professionals. Communication was great & time frame was faster than i expected. They really deliver! I literally had nothing to worry about accept writing the check. I would strongly recommend this company to others! And I'll be calling them back out in the Spring to replace the last 3 windows on my house!"
