Common Questions & Answers

Q: If I have my windows replaced now,how long can I expect them to last?
Get Answer:
A: Much depends on the quality of window you have installed and the options you select. A high quality replacement window properly installed should maintain its usefulness and efficiency for 35 years or more.

Q: How do I, as a lay person, know the difference between a high quality window and one of lesser quality?
Get Answer:
A: If you purchase the highest quality replacement window or one of a much lower quality at a much lower price, once installed, to the average eye, they will look the same. However, once installed these windows will be subject to expansion and contraction, excessive climates and other vagaries of the weather, including wear and tear from operation(raising, lowering,sliding). Because of this, it is important to see what the inside of the window frame looks like and what is built into its manufacturer to deal with these elements. It is also very important to examine the glass package of the window. This includes glass thickness, coatings, gas, and spacer material.

Q: How do I see the inside of the window frame and how will I know what to look for?
Get Answer:
A: Most window companies will furnish a cutaway sample for the customer see the inside of the window frame. They will also have a small sample window to explain and demonstrate how the window actually works.

Q: How do I know what type of glass packages bests serves the needs of my home?
Get Answer:
A: The answer is complicated and will require research from the homeowner. In central Texas, we have a very long cooling season, so Low-E glass is mandatory, as is Argon gas between the panes of glass. A silver coating is also highly recommended. A qualified replacement window contractor will have studies available for the homeowner to best make educated decisions as to glass options.

More Q' & A's

Q: What is the difference between a single hung window and a double hung window?
Get Answer:
A: A single hung window is built where only the bottom sash of the window raises and lowers for ventilation. (most home builders install this type of window). A double hung window both the bottom and top sashes slide up and down, thereby enabling the homeowner to ventilate using one or the other or both.

Q: My home has old wood siding on it and there are several places where the wood is rotted and needs repair. If I install new vinyl siding will all the old siding have to be torn off prior to installing new siding?
Get Answer:
A: When installing new vinyl siding over existing wood siding first any warped, rotted or decayed wood is replaced. The industry standard is up to 25% can be replaced, over that amount then all wood must be torn off prior to the new siding installation.

Q: I have vinyl siding on my home now that is over 25 years old. It has held up well but the color is faded and it is chalking when touched. Is there anything I can do do restore the siding or will it need to be replaced?
Get Answer:
A:With 25 year old vinyl siding over the years the sun and elements have faded the colors and broken down the polymers in the siding. You can use a mild detergent to wash the siding but the color will still be faded. The siding industry has made great strides in the composition of materials that are used today in the new siding products. Most siding warranties today do cover fading issues where 25 years ago they did not. It is time ti replace the siding.

Q: I am considering installing new siding on my home. It has asbestos siding presently on it. Will the asbestos siding have to be removed prior to installing new siding or can it be left on house and the new siding put on top of it?
Get Answer:
A: The old asbestos siding must be removed!! There are Federal and State guidelines that must be followed when dealing with asbestos. Your siding contractor should adhere to these guidelines and be licensed to perform asbestos installations.
