“I wanted to take the time to tell you how much I am enjoying my windows! During the entire summer I have been enjoying the benefits of cross-ventilation. I believe the new windows also helped to reduce my energy bill last winter. New windows allowed me to keep my bills constant, while using less energy than the year before. So, thanks again to you and your crew for your contributions to my house!” -D. Twight, Seattle

Shedding Some Light
on New Replacement Windows
Today’s windows make your life much easier. New materials like vinyl/thermal and fiberglass frames make window maintenance (like scraping, painting, caulking) a thing of the past. Many windows tilt in for easy, inside cleaning of the outside glass. New insulated glass designs, glass coatings, and improved pane insulation cut your energy costs. Your home is more comfortable while actually costing you less to heat and cool.
Some contractors will try to save money by installing standard sized windows and trying to make them fit into your window openings. These windows, usually purchased from a building supply store, are not a good value. Here’s why: over time, a home settles. As it does, the window openings are never 100% square and level. So, in order to get a precise fit, a contractor will have to try and level out, “build up”, or “shim” the window opening.
But the best way — the Snowridge way — is to ensure a precise fit and airtight installation by precisely measuring the window openings and then custom building the window to those dimensions. You may think this sounds expensive. Actually, it doesn’t cost much more to have a custom made window than to have a standard sized one. Plus, you’re assured of a perfect fit.
