There are times that homeowners call us because they would like a professional opinion on whether custom window replacement is needed and there are other times when homeowners know without a doubt their windows need replacement. In Hans’ case, he fell into the latter category. With exterior temperatures dropping, he was noticing that his living windows were drafty and prone to condensation. He also suspected that the seals were broken, and that new exterior trim was needed. Having listened to our weekly home improvement show on WCCO Radio, he had confidence in our team of experts and sought our advice for the best window for his 1940’s era home. When we shared with him the details about our SeasonGuard window line, he knew he’d found the perfect match for his home. Here’s why!
Full Frame Window Replacement: Hans was pleased to learn that Lindus Construction specializes in full frame window replacement. This installation technique allows us to inspect the window’s rough opening for dry rot once the old windows have been removed. At that time, we can make upgrades to the window insulation and flashing. On a home with windows as old as Hans’, this was an important step towards a long-lasting window installation.
Energy Efficiency: Hans’ current windows hadn’t been comprised of triple pane glass which had been detrimental to his home’s energy efficiency. He was pleased to learn that SeasonGuard windows have three panes of glass separated and filled with Low-E and high-density argon gas. These properties allow SeasonGuard windows to prevent exterior air from penetrating the home and lowering the temperatures during the winter months, and hot exterior air from raising the home’s internal temperature in the summer months.
