Windows on a home

Moving into a new home is one of the most exciting times of your life. Whether you are moving into your first home or upgrading to a home big enough for your entire family, a new space is a blank slate that is full of promise and hope. When you look at a home you’re likely paying more attention to the space and the size rather than whether or not the windows glide open or what material they are made out of. Once you sign the papers, though, the house is yours, windows and all, so make sure to take a look at the condition of the windows of your future home. Here are a few things to look for. (more…)

We’ve mentioned previously how a window is more than just a pane of glass. The supportive frame is what really gives the window its identity. Of course, that’s not saying that the double pane of glass that keeps over 80% of UV rays from passing through that come standard in quality windows nowadays isn’t important, it most definitely is as a safety precaution and energy saver. No matter how fine the craftsmanship of the window is, if it’s not installed correctly, it won’t be long before you’ll regret your decision to replace your windows. (more…)

How NG Windows Put Its Stamp on Historical Atlanta

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

Historical Atlanta

Architecturally speaking, Atlanta is on the wrong side of history.  Due to a few unfortunate fires including one as recently as 99 years ago the city of Atlanta has been more in the rebuilding process rather than in the restoration business.  Despite the age of a majority of our buildings, Atlanta is known globally for its rich history.   From when the Zero Mile Post was driven into the ground in 1837 Atlanta has been a thriving capital city. It played pinnacle roles in both the Civil War and the Civil Rights movement 100 years later.  Atlanta is home to global corporations that have GDPs larger than some mid-sized countries, such as Coca-Cola, Turner Broadcasting and Delta Airlines.  It is also home to the busiest airport in the world.  With such a rich and dynamic history, such a vibrant present and a great outlook for the future, there’s no better place than right here in Atlanta, Georgia.  Of course, when we were asked to put our small stamp on Atlanta history, we jumped at the chance.

Remodeling Your Home? Don’t Forget the New Doors and Windows

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Remodeled Window Door

Remodeling your home is one of the most gratifying experiences you’ll ever undertake, if it’s done correctly.  To be able to transform your home into a new home and not have to bother with actually moving is rewarding.  On top of that, the fact that you helped design your home to tailor it to your needs and wants makes a remodel even better.  Commonly, though, people will invest thousands of dollars to reconfigure their home but forget to address certain details.  Windows and doors, for example, are both defining characteristics of a home and shouldn’t be done as an afterthought.  Below are three common home improvement projects where a new door or window will enhance the beauty and functionality of the room.

Kitchen Remodel

A kitchen remodel is perhaps the most desirable project there is.  The kitchen is an area of the house where meals are cooked, family and friends convene and many memories are made.  Because of all that the average kitchen remodel costs roughly $20,000, since expense is a little more flexible in such an important space.  While a stainless steel fridge and a matching oven and dishwasher are necessary and the granite countertops and farmhouse sink are vital, don’t forget about your windows. Your current windows were built for your old kitchen; your new one deserves something fitting of the new space.   A garden window or a casement window are both great windows for both letting the light in and providing a purpose beyond adding to the appeal of the room.

Master Suite

Where you sleep at night can have a profound effect on your daily life.  As a result it should be no surprise that a new master suite is on the wish list of many homeowners.   Since you are remodeling your room, it’s likely your home was built in a different era.  The age of your home alone is a great reason to replace the windows in your master suite, after all, new windows will be more energy efficient than your past windows.  Like the windows in the kitchen, not only can they add to the architecture of the room, but also give the room an ambiance that you’d expect from a high-end hotel.   A bay window is not only the perfect choice to allow more light but it also adds to the space in your room and gives you a bigger master suite.

Bedroom to Office

As the kids get older and start to move out, you will likely find a lot of unnecessary space in your home.  It’s the perfect time to reconfigure your space and turn a recently turned spare bedroom into an office.  This is one of the simpler home remodeling projects you’ll undertake.  A desk and shelving in place of a bed and dresser is all you technically need, but who wants to work in a dark space that originally had windows put in for a room to be slept in?  An office requires sunshine and perhaps even a better entrance than the old bedroom door your child scuffed and slammed over the past 18 years.    An awning window is all you would need to transform your new office from run-of-the-mill to awe-inspiring.

Don’t settle for a great space but underwhelming  details.  Let the light shine through, let the cool spring or autumn air in and when people enter the space, have them do it through an entrance befitting of the room.
