You're a homeowner who needs to increase the efficiency of your home and boost curb appeal. You decide to tackle the project yourself and improve your Indianapolis home with some new windows. Once you begin browsing window styles and learn about window installation requirements, you realize that you might be in over your head.
If this sounds familiar, you're not alone. Some homeowners may choose to bypass hiring a window contractor as an attempt to save money. However, there are many downsides to tackling a replacement window project on your own. Here are the reasons why you need a pro to get the job done and when it's time for new windows:
When you want the job done just right, don't cut corners with window installation. Many professional installers have certifications such as InstallationMasters. This means that the contractor took initiative to stay current on industry regulations, and they have the know-how to install your windows safely and efficiently.
There are several signs that it's time to hire a professional window company. High energy bills is one of the telltale signs, as it indicates that energy is being lost through the sash and sill. Drafts are another indication that it's time to hire a window professional—which are bound to make your home feel uncomfortable during the winter and summer.
UniShield® Windows are exclusive to Universal Windows Direct. This glass package incorporates the most energy efficient features to help homeowners save money on their energy bills. These features include argon and krypton gases, which maximizes the thermal efficiency of the window. Krypton gas is the denser option which comes at a higher cost, and it’s typically used with dual pane windows instead of triple pane.
UniShield® also includes one-to-two coats of low-e glazing to control infrared energy. Homeowners can also choose between dual and triple pane glass to top off their energy efficient home windows.
