Choosing Replacement Windows
Do you need to replace the windows in your home? If so, here are a few factors you should consider when deciding on the right contractor.
Quality of material
While many vinyl windows look the same, there is a wide difference in quality. This is the difference between a window that breaks down after five years, and one that operates efficiently for the life of your home.
After 16 years in the window business, Windows Hawaii has isolated the most cost-effective brands that stand up to Hawaii’s weather.
The company’s Anlin windows use Mikron vinyl, which is manufactured for yachts so that it can stand up to heavy salt exposure and direct sunlight.
The windows also are guaranteed not to fade or crack. The glass is double strength (1.5 times the thickness of regular glass) for better sound and heat insulations, as well as protection from breakage.
Anlin also uses stainless steel hardware to better resist the elements.
Even without air conditioning, a good quality dual pane window can keep your home at least five degrees cooler during the summer months. Reputable window brands such as Anlin display their energy ratings. This means lower energy costs and more comfort.
If you use an air conditioner, you will save 30 percent on your energy bill.
Lawnmowers? Barking dogs? Road noise? Anlin leads the industry in sound protection.
Do your windows pass California Forced Entry (CFE) requirements? Do they have double-strength glass and cam-locks? All Anlin windows do.
Does your warrant last three years? Five years? At Windows Hawaii, the company guarantees the installation for the life of your home. Also, the warranty is transferable to the owner after you.
