Window installation is an important aspect of home maintenance. It can cost a minimum of $1,000 to replace a window and up to $10,000 to make home repairs to new floors, drywall, and electric. Windows are the last line of defense against water damage, so it's important to be installed by a trained professional. Improper insulation can lead to costly energy loss and other problems such as air leaks, drafts, condensation, and mold. Choosing a reputable company like Window Nation, with attention to detail and experienced installers, can ensure that windows are installed correctly.
There are several key elements to a new window such as the frame, glass, operation, and coatings. The most common window frame is vinyl, which is low maintenance and affordable, with superior moisture resistance and energy efficiency. Window coatings, such as low-E and spectrally selective, can also reduce solar heat gain and improve energy efficiency.
