Where To Find Replacement Window Reviews

The easiest way to find reviews of a certain replacement window that you are considering is to “google” “replacement window reviews [company name].” Your results will list tons of review sites. The key is understanding the most important ones. While this often changes based on where you are, the ones on the first page are usually the best in terms of getting a representative sample.

The one’s you typically want to look at in particular are Houzz (a relatively new social network that is home improvement specific), the BBB, Yelp and Angie’s list. Google reviews are also important, but are harder to come by, as the reviewer must have a Google account before posting a review. https://goo.gl/KThKii

We’re proud to now exclusively offer Restorations by Sunrise Windows to our Charleston, Savannah and Hilton Head homeowners.

This product is the top of line window in the Sunrise Windows family. It’s designed to look more like a wood window, with none of those unsightly tilt latches most other vinyl windows have. The proprietary Q-4 locking mechanism incorporates the tilt latches within the lock itself.

Restorations by Sunrise Windows also takes advantages of the positives of fiberglass, strength and thermal efficiency, without the high cost and necessity of upkeep, by inserting the fiberglass into the sash rails. This guarantees strength, security and thermal efficiency.

We’re so excited that our product partner, Restorations by Sunrise Windows, was featured in a recent spot on Designing Spaces on Lifetime. Charleston, Savannah and Hilton Head area homeowners who want to know more these beautiful replacement windows should check out the video and call us for a no pressure, no obligation, in-home appointment. You can also learn more at the Sunrise Windows website. https://goo.gl/JAKf8m

DON’T BUY NEW DRAFTY REPLACEMENT WINDOWS
One of the “dirtiest little secrets” about buying new replacement windows is understanding how drafty replacement windows can be. As a matter of fact, in some cases brand new replacement windows can be just as drafty as the old ones that you are replacing.

Previously, we discussed a couple of ways that you can look at someone’s sample window and determine whether or not their new window would be drafty.

One of the criteria that we mentioned was the NFRC sticker. The NFRC is the National Fenestration Ratings Council; a great place for educating yourself about windows, entry doors, and skylights (“fenestrations”). It’s also protection…protection from unscrupulous contractors that may say anything to get you to buy their product.

You see, member manufacturers are required to get all variations of their products tested by the NFRC for certain criteria. The results are reported on a sticker that must be affixed to every window delivered to your home for installation.

While by no means all the criteria that you should use to determine the best product for your Charleston, Savannah or Hilton Head area home, these numbers do provide a way to objectively compare the performance of different products.

The one that previously has been the most overlooked is the fourth block, or Air Leakage number. Technically, this is a measurement of how much air passes through the window assembly over a period of time. Obviously, a drafty window is a problem, and the number one reason that Low Country homeowner’s replace their old, inefficient windows. https://goo.gl/tf2evD

REPLACING WOOD WINDOWS WITH VINYL WINDOWS
Can you tell if it’s a Wood Window or a Vinyl Window in the picture below?

On Hilton Head Island we replaced “original to the home” wood windows with vinyl windows. Really! Can you tell the difference? Our installation crew installed vinyl windows to a part and 1 part is wood. We used brick mold and wrapped with PVC trim coil using a buddy break to maintain the existing look.

Vinyl windows comes without the hassle of continual painting, wood rot repairs and any other routine maintenance that comes with upkeep of your home and windows. In the picture above the small window above the double hung window is the original wood window. Both windows have the same window frame thickness, style, color and the window pane pattern is exactly the same. Back in the days everyone wanted their windows to be made out of wood. Now 10 to 15 plus years later these wood windows have damages and wood rot. Especially in the coastal areas the salt air takes a toll on wood and metal framed windows.

Many vinyl replacement window manufacturers limit your aesthetic options when it comes to color; often only offering some version of white and a tan or almond color. However, most homeowners would prefer the option to match, or create anew, the decor of their home. https://goo.gl/jMrYcu

The manufacturers we are direct dealers with offer over 130 standard color and finish combinations, including six interior woodgrains. Additionally, you can have any exterior color you like through our custom-matched exterior paint option.
