Our Free In Home Window Diagnosis Process
When we first visit your home our goal is to “diagnose” your existing windows & doors. Our first step is to gather information so we can put together a detailed proposal.
We want to understand what you have in mind, and what new windows and doors will do for you, your home and your family’s lifestyle.
Below are just some of the many items we take the time to consider when assessing your existing windows and doors.
❑ SINGLE PANE GLASS WINDOWS
60% of the customers we visit have single pane windows. Single pane windows are by far the least energy efficient windows on the market. A lot of heat loss & heat gain in your home occurs here.
❑ HARD OR INOPERABLE WINDOWS
It is surprising how many homes we find with hard to open or completely inoperable windows. Older homes and windows may have shifted or moved over the years, making the windows and doors hard to operate & impossible to lock. We also find that a lot of windows and doors are just worn out over 30, 40, 50, or more years of use.
❑ WINDOW SEAL FAILURE
You may not be familiar with the term “seal failure”, but you have probably seen it. This is when a dual pane window has moisture in-between the panes of glass, or is fogged up. This is an indication that the seal around the glass has failed, which greatly reduces the window’s ability to insulate against heat and cold infiltration.
❑ WARM & COLD SPOTS
After a lifetime of use many windows ability to seal are gone. The weather stripping that once kept the cold, wind, dust & dirt out is worn out or permanently compressed – eliminating the windows ability to seal out the elements. If you have noticed that your home getting dusty quickly, or you feel slight breezes on windy days while your windows are closed, this is what is happening.
