Large windows let you see the beauty of the outdoors and the surroundings in your community. They make us feel connected to the outside world, but from the comfort of inside the home. Windows have evolved from small holes in the wall to large panes of glass that provide a spectacular view.

When you are in the market for new windows, you might see the option for a full-frame or a pocket installation. A full-frame window installation is when the entire window is removed and that consists of removing the entire frame, glass, sash, casing, and trim. This option is great for windows that have rotted or damaged frames and air leakage problems. A full-frame installation is the option to choose if you want to enlarge the window frame. Pocket installation will keep the existing perimeter of the window frame and only replace the full window. Homeowners should consider this option if the existing window frame is unique or historic to the home’s style.
What is low-e glass? Why do I need windows with Low-E glass?
Low E glass stands for Low emissivity gas, which is a colorless, thin, non-toxic coating that is applied to windows. This reflective coating makes windows and doors more energy efficient.

Essentially, your home will keep the heat in during the colder months and keep out the heat during warmer months.
