Navigate climate challenges
As the first-place winner as the top “Window Replacement” store in Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s Hawaii’s Best People’s Choice Awards for eight consecutive years, Windows Hawaii truly is the unsurpassed leader in the field and continues to bolster its stellar reputation, one customer at a time.
Homeowners are reminded that doing the appropriate research prior to embarking on a window replacement project is a must to ensure customers aren’t burned by companies looking to take advantage of clients. Windows Hawaii general manager Mario Garcia stresses the importance of making sure companies are vetted by the Better Business Bureau (BBB), hold valid licenses and are appropriately bonded and insured to avoid risk to the customer.
“There are some companies out there that are not accredited by the BBB, yet they mislead customers to think they are,” Garcia says.
“It’s important to check with various trusted sources — including the BBB, Department of Planning and Permitting, City & County records and sites such as Yelp — to find helpful reviews and guidance during the process.”
With the unique and sometimes extreme weather and climate challenges in Hawaii, why invest in a window system that isn’t designed to stand up to the adverse conditions? Daniel Powlison renovated his Lanikai home in 2004 by installing new windows throughout the two-story dwelling near Kailua Beach.
However, he soon realized that the new windows were subpar as they fell apart after being exposed to saltwater spray and Hawaii’s heat and humidity.
“With the location of our home, things need to be built to last because it’s like living on a boat!” Powlison says.
In 2015,Powlisoncontacted Garcia who introduced him to Anlin’s Alii Extreme windows, which are created specifically for Hawaii’s climate and offer multiple benefits including premium noise reduction, exceptional UV protection, heat reduction,and easy operation and maintenance. Powlison had more than 30 brand-new windows installed at his home, and they continue to perform as promised.
“I was attracted to the Alii Extreme windows being made for Hawaii’s climate, and they continue to hold up very well,” says Powlison, who decided to add seven more windows to the home. “I figured it was time to get more Alii Extreme windows in here. The customer service has always been great, and the team at Windows Hawaii has been extremely helpful over the years.
“Mario is a super friendly guy, and he gave me added confidence in this big investment because he genuinely likes and believes in the products.I would definitely recommend Windows Hawaii.”
SunMatrix is a popular feature of the Alii product line that provides four layers of low emissivity coating, which greatly improves energy efficiency. SunMatrix blocks 99% of harmful UV rays — a feat not offered by any other brand of windows locally, as Windows Hawaii is the sole source for SunMatrix in the state.
Anlin’s unmatched true double-lifetime warranty offers a superb lifetime installation and product warranty on Alii Extreme windows for as long as one owns their home. Also included is a lifetime complimentary accidental glass breakage replacement feature. Couple this manufacturer’s warranty with Windows Hawaii’s installation warranty, and there’s no going wrong as the warranty also covers labor and installation.
