According to Weathershield Windows, the company’s impressive line of doors and windows provide customers with many years of enduring functionality and beauty. Weathershield Windows stresses the fact that a purchase of Weathershield products may qualify a homeowner for a wide range of incentives and rebates. Here, Weathershield Windows explains how its offerings continue to be the right solution for families across the United States.
Q: How can homeowners achieve incentives and rebates on their Weathershield purchase?
Weathershield Windows: Throughout the United States, utilities and governments often issue cash incentives to businesses and homes that take energy efficient measures.
Q: What new product lines are now available to the general public?
Weathershield Windows: Either on our website or through our phone number, customer service representatives can now assist clients with three new product lines: the Premium Series, the Signature Series, and the Aspire Series.
Q: How does the Premium Series stack up to other similar products on the market?
Weathershield Windows: The Premium Series is tailored for more discriminating homeowners and architects. As part of this line, our company provides an extensive collection of wood patio doors and windows. By offering a wide array of accessories, upgrades and other options, clients have the ability to reach the zenith of their creativity.
According to Weathershield Windows, loose-fitting or weathered frames and windows are not only unattractive, but they are structurally unsound and waste a significant amount of energy. For homeowners embarking on a remodeling project, the most prudent way to correct these issues is to completely replace the window, including the exterior and interior trim, as well as the frame. At Weathershield Windows, an extensive line of replacement windows feature traditional details while leveraging modern technologies. As a result, they are historically accurate, remarkably attractive, and energy-efficient. Available in a variety of sizes and shapes, these windows give clients the ability to create their own custom fit.
An alternative to full frames would be pocket frames. Often referred to as an insert, these fully assembled windows have been designed to fit directly into the “pocket” of the homeowner’s current window. As an added bonus, pocket frame windows are generally installed without affecting the exterior or interior trim. Pocket frame windows are one of the easiest and quickest ways for a homeowner to update the home’s windows, affirms Weathershield Windows.
When selecting an architect, Weathershield Windows suggests clients start with neighbors, relatives or friends who have previously worked with architects, remodelers, designers or builders. Satisfied customers tend to be the best points of reference when embarking on such an enormous task, says the team at Weathershield Windows. Organizations that can provide further insight into this process include the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, the National Association of Home Builders and the American Institute of Building Design.
For complex changes or major additions, an architect may be a solid investment during the planning stage. Weathershield Windows recommends asking to see examples of the individual’s work, as well as an exhaustive list of references. It will also be helpful to set up a time to meet with each candidate and take along sketches or photos of ideas and designs of interest. For further details on the wide variety of options available on today’s market, homeowners should contact either the Society of American Registered Architects or the American Institute of Architects.
Q: What are “architectural windows?”
Weathershield Windows: Architectural windows, also known as architecture grade windows, are not a window type per se, but rather a window style. Architectural windows can be built from a wide array of materials, and offer the homeowner an extensive style selection as well as architectural authenticity. For homeowners who demand performance, sophistication and style, architectural windows have proven to be a popular option across the country.
Q: Do architectural windows contain traditional or more modern elements of style?
Weathershield Windows: Architectural windows can sometimes be modern in style, but are generally known as historically accurate re-creations of traditional window designs. They have proven to be tremendously popular with homeowners who live in historic districts. For those who long for the elegant and timeless look of the old days, architectural windows fit the bill.
A partner with Energy Star®, the environmentally conscious team at Weather Shield Windows and Doors has been an industry leader in developing state-of-the-art door and window products. Based in the north woods of Wisconsin since 1955, Weather Shield Windows and Doors caters to clients located throughout the United States. Below, Weather Shield Windows and Doors makes the distinction between two product types: new construction and replacement windows.
Q: Is there a significant difference between these two types of windows?
Weather Shield Windows and Doors: In all reality, there’s precious little difference between these two types – replacement and new construction.
Replacement windows are one of the most sought-after items in the Weather Shield Windows and Doors extensive product line. Existing window frames can be used with replacement windows depending on their condition and age.
For homes with older or poorly insulated windows, the team at Weather Shield Windows and Doors typically recommends a full-frame window replacement. Full-frame replacement windows are designed to decrease air leakage and address insulation needs in the window frame. Over a long period of time, materials naturally decay and become much less efficient. Full-frame replacement windows have proven to be an excellent choice for lowering the overall energy costs in a home.
