Why top-of-the-line windows matter
STORY BY Brandi-Ann Uyemura
People who choose the right windows for their home don’t think twice about it. But those who make decisions on their window purchase casually and in haste, or based purely on things like price and a good deal, often realize the importance of quality windows too late. While there are many choices out there, Ali‘i Extreme Windows by Windows Hawaii continues to be the windows customers ask for and recommend to their friends. Here are some features of this high-performance line that make it a fan favorite with local customers:
• Reduces your energy costs. Ali‘i Extreme Windows comes with an Infinite Plus High Performance Glazing System, which consists of triple-layer silver glass coating, cam-style locks and a triple-fin weather strip. Together, they reduce thermal transfer and block 95 percent of harmful UV rays. This is great for hot Hawaii households and energy bills, reducing cooling costs.
• Keeps your home quiet. These windows come with a three-chamber silicon spacer that provides an airtight seal, which is great for keeping both heat and sound out. This means less external noise and accounts for the reduction in your typical outdoor soundtrack of traffic, noisy neighbors and barking dogs.
• Buys you peace of mind. Its metal-reinforced locking system passed the California Forced Entry Test, which measures a window’s ability to remain locked and closed, despite extreme pressure.
• Offers an aesthetic look inside and out. A streamline appearance and “Better Vue” screens mean the windows are nice to look at and beautiful to look through. Its UPVC frames also prevent yellowing and cracking that occurs after repeated sun exposure.
• Comes with a lifetime guarantee. Ali‘i Extreme Windows’ residential homeowner warranty gives you a limited lifetime warranty that is transferable to future owners. The warranty also covers insulated glass unity and vinyl parts, and any accidental glass breakage.
To get the best quality performance windows for your home, make sure you ask for Ali‘i Extreme Windows. It’s one of the reasons why Honolulu Star-Advertiser readers voted Windows Hawaii, an exclusive distributor of the Ali‘i Extreme line, as the best windows replacement company for two years in a row.
