Many pleased customers rely on Windows Hawaii as the local company who has carried the banner as the first-place winner representing the top “Window Replacement” store in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s Hawaii’s Best People’s Choice Awards for eight years running.
Windows Hawaii builds trust within the local community by offering top-quality product lines, including its best-selling Alii Extreme windows and doors. The Alii Extreme line includes a next-generation, high-performance glazing system: Infinite-Plus, which offers a triple-layer silver coating to reduce solar heat. The glass provides 99% UV protection with Windows Hawaii’s new Sun Matrix upgrade, which helps preserve furniture inside the home. This exclusive Sun Matrix addition provides four layers of “low-e,” which no other manufacturer on the island offers.
These superior products feature an incredible U-Factor, which measures how well a window insulates a home from heat, of 0.26; on the scale of 0.20-1.20, this rating designates the Alii Extreme windows as highly efficient when it comes to insulation. The windows feature a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient, which notes how much of the sun’s heat comes through the window, just 0.18 — 0.25-0.80 is considered the normal range for residential windows — so the Alii Extreme products are industry leaders.
Alii Extreme windows offer a 0.40 Visual Transmittance rating, which refers to the amount of natural light allowed to filter through, and this is an ideal figure when paired with the ability to keep heat out. The window line is rated with a 0.60 Condensation Resistance, which is great in Hawaii’s warmer climate as the windows help to regulate humidity within a home.
Additionally, Alii Extreme windows can withstand winds up to 120 mph, reduce up to 50% of outside noise and feature three weather strips per window (sliders), which triples the protection against moisture, dirt, noise, bacteria, mold and mildew thanks to an antimicrobial treatment.
Windows Hawaii general manager Mario Garcia stresses the importance of doing the appropriate research, utilizing quality products installed by industry professionals, making sure licensed companies are vetted by the Better Business Bureau 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 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.”
Pat Martin, a longtime Windows Hawaii client from Honolulu, has relied on the Alii Extreme window line at several of her properties, including apartments and single-family homes.
“They have serviced me very well over the years and accommodated multiple projects with specific products to meet the needs of the homes,” says Martin, who feels at ease when working with Garcia and his knowledgeable team. “Looking at the products in the showroom, and comparing them visually to the competition, Windows Hawaii simplified the process of understanding the warranty, privacy, sound suppression and security elements that Alii Extreme windows offer.”
