Replacement windows provide you with the beauty, function and energy efficiency of new windows without the high cost of removing your old windows.
Benefits of replacement windows:
- Greater comfort. Say goodbye to cold winter drafts from leaky, inefficient windows.
- Energy savings. Reduced heating and cooling costs.
- Improved home resale value. Increased curb appeal + reduced operating costs = more home value.
- Zero maintenance. Vinyl replacement windows never need painting.
- Smooth operation. New windows open, close and lock easily.
- No exterior alterations. Replacement windows can be installed without any alterations to your home exterior.
In a typical replacement window installation, only the glazed parts of the old window (referred to as the window sash) are removed. Your replacement window comes in its own frame sized to fit inside the jambs of your old window. The installation is done from the interior of your house. No alterations to your exterior siding or trim are required.
Halco installs replacement windows the right way with Sunrise Windows!
There are many companies who make replacement windows, and even more local contractors who install them. With so many choices, how can you be sure you’re getting a top quality window along with expert installation?
Here are the keys to success with a replacement window project:
- Exact measurements. It’s critical for the installer to measure your existing windows correctly so that each replacement window can be made in exactly the right size. Taking proper measurements can be tricky in older houses --especially when window openings aren’t perfectly rectangular. An experienced window technician will be able to overcome such challenges and get correct measurements.
- Smart prep work. A skilled installer will protect your home interior before removing the old window sash. The installer will also make sure that your existing window sill and jambs are in proper condition to receive replacement window units.
- Quality window units. Some replacement windows are definitely better than others. The Sunrise brand replacement windows available from Halco offer exceptional value.
- Professional installation. It’s important for the installer to seal all gaps between the new replacement window frame and the old window jambs. This work is typically done with special low-expanding spray foam.
- Well-crafted finish trim. The final installation step is to install interior trim that integrates your replacement windows with existing trim details.
