A couple years ago, Ginnee opted to downsize from her single family home to a townhome located in Prior Lake, MN. The property was built in 1997. With a move-in date in the month of July, there was little evidence that the home’s doors and windows were at the end of their lifespan. However, once the mercury began to drop and the snow began to fall, it quickly became evident that something needed to be done. Her windows and doors began to experience ice build-up and condensation. This resulted in mold and mildew. Equally as frustrating was the cold air that the double pane windows were allowing to filter in. The final straw was that some of the windows took coaxing to open and close.
Knowing that several windows and doors within her Twin Cities townhome would need replacement, she began conducting research for a contractor and product that would be the perfect match. She made the call to Lindus Construction to learn more about the windows we offer. While out there, our expert also noticed that a substantial amount of cold air was leaking in from around her front door.
“I decided on SeasonGuard windows because of the look and the fact that they were triple pane for better insulation. I liked everything about them. And because I live in a townhouse with a very strict HOA with exterior look rules, they had to look exactly as they did,” said Ginnee.
Exclusive to Lindus Construction, SeasonGuard Windows win high marks with homeowners for not only being aesthetically pleasing, but also increasing a home’s energy efficiency. SeasonGuard windows come with a transferable manufacturer’s guarantee that even covers glass breakage. Their glass surface area is expanded, which allows in significantly more daylight. They also excel at noise reduction.
With two cats, Ginnee, appreciated that our installation team took steps to ensure they wouldn’t sneak through the window openings during the installation process. “They even took down my window treatments and put them back up as they were!”
“One benefit to the new windows I wasn’t counting on is the wider window sill. My old window sills were only 2”. Now I have 4”! That’s enough space for my cats to sit SeasonGuard slider window comfortably on the sill to look out. I can now also put fresh herb plants in my kitchen window. BONUS!”
When asked which window is her favorite, hands down it’s her slider. In one word, she describes it as “stunning.” She finds it superior to those available at big box stores because it’s more solid. She also appreciates the beautiful hardware that adorns the window and the ease at which she can operate it. “It glides so smoothly! I just love it!”
