3-How To Differentiate Between High and Low Quality Windows?
For either New Construction or Replacement windows, be sure to look for certain features that differentiate between high and low-quality windows. Some key elements to look for include:
• The NFRC Label: National Fenestration Rating Council
• Metal lock components that fit together well—stainless
steel is recommended.
• Matching colors on all components.
• Heat-welded joints as opposed to the window sash and
frame being mechanically fastened and held togethe
by screws, brackets and caulk.
4-What Is A Grid?
A grid is typically an aluminum flat
bar or profile which is crossed inside an insulating unit to give a window a "divided lite" colonial appearance. This is referred to as a grid because of the equal boxes it creates.
5-What are the Types of Grids?
• Flat grids are 5/8 inch in width and referred to as flat due their smooth profile. Flat grids are the most economical grids available.
• Sculptured grids are wider than flat grids at 1 and 1/16
inches in width. Sculptured grids have a higher profile than a flat grid as well as edge detail. Simulating a true divided lite -- as seen in wood windows -- a sculptured grid gives a higher-end look.
6- What are my Glass Options?
• Insulated glass
is a standard feature with all our new windows. It provides more energy efficiency than traditional single pane glass windows. It consists of two sealed tiles of glass joined with an aluminum spacer to create an insulating airspace.
• Clear Glass allows natural colors to show without distortion, provides maximum light transmission and can be tempered for use where safety glass is required.
• Low Emissivity (Low-E) Glass reduces wintertime heat loss from inside your home due to a thin, nearly colorless metallic coating that reflects heat back into your home. It also allows moderate solar heat gain while reducing harmful ultraviolet light which can damage drapes, furniture and carpets. Additionally, the Low-E coating reduces summertime air conditioning loads by reflecting radiated heat outside your home.
Many more Glass options are available such as:
• Tinted Glass
• Solar Cool Reflective Glass
• Obscure Glass
• Tempered Safety Glass
• Laminated Glass
