Five Telltale Signs That You Need Window Replacement in Atlanta

Thursday, October 10th, 2013

Broken_WindowDrafts

If your once warm and cozy home begins to feel cool and drafty, it may be time to replace faulty windows. Moisture makes wood windows warp over time, which creates gaps in the frame for cold air to come through. Worn and cracked window frames offer no protection against cold air seeping through. Although weather stripping offers a temporary solution, window replacement is the most effective option.

Difficult to Operate

Once windows become so old and worn that they are difficult to open and close, it’s time to invest in replacements. In the case of double or single hung windows, you may have trouble keeping them up due to faulty mechanisms. In both cases, your windows have become a health and security hazard.

Condensation

Condensation inside a double or triple pane glass window is an indicator of faulty seals. When window seals falter, moisture and cold air can seep through in between the glass panes, making the insulated glass of no effect.  This problem most often creates an unsightly and obstruction to your view.

Seal_Failure

Cracked Glass

Cracks in the make your windows less efficient and dangerous to be around. Although glass patch-up is an option, the best and most secure option is to invest in new windows.

Rise in Energy Bills

If you’ve already made home improvements to lower energy costs and still suffer from high energy bills, it may be due to faulty windows. Inefficient windows leak cool air in summer and fail to block drafts in winter, increasing energy costs year round.

Replacement windows lower energy costs, enhance your security and increase the value of your home. For quality window replacement in Atlanta at reasonable costs, contact North Georgia Replacement Windows.

What to Expect During Your Atlanta Window Replacement Project

Monday, June 10th, 2013

what_to_expect_2Most people have never tackled a window replacement project. And while it’s true there are many do-it-yourselfers out there, chances are that going from room to room to assess the energy efficiency and quality of installation of their existing win
dows isn’t their first task of choice. Not to mention getting high up on that ladder and working on your exterior windows – better leave that to the professionals at North Georgia Replacement Windows!

When North Georgia Replacement Windows takes on a project, we do it right, the first time. Ours is a competitive industry and shabby work will not abide. Our expert team handles each job from inception to completion, using the proper materials and tooling to ensure your absolute satisfaction with our craftsmanship, and your total delight with your new replacement windows.

We have the experience to pinpoint unexpected issues that may arise. After all, we deal with existing homes and office buildings on a daily basis – we’ve seen it all! Other fly-by-night window contractors lack the motivation to take the extra measures that make a window replacement project an air-tight and flawless undertaking. There are many considerations!

  • Using the Proper Sealants – Is the glazing properly sealed? There is a huge difference between cheap sealant and good sealant, and that difference is crucial to the long-term performance of your windows, the protection from the elements and the energy efficiency they provide.
  • Tempered Safety Glass where Needed – Some areas of the home may require tempered safety glass and are subject to home inspections – as licensed general contractors, we understand that process completely.
  • Window Cladding and Capping – Sometimes specialized trim work is necessary on the window exterior. We wrap older wood-trim exteriors with a special aluminum coated with a permanent PVC-enamel finish. This is known as cladding and, when not done correctly, it can allow for wood rot. We do it correctly.
  • Proper Mitering of Corners – It’s the detailed care in our work that really makes the difference. Without proper, fastidious mitering, you have gaps which lead to loose panes and air drafts. After all, we’re trying to improve your home’s energy efficiency!
  • On-Site Worker Safety – We never cut corners on safety. We always ensure each job site is 100% safe – for our workers and your family.
  • Complete and Thorough Clean-Up – When we work in your home, we take the utmost care of your belongings and furnishings. We use drop cloths on all the furnishings, we vacuum thoroughly and always try to leave your home cleaner than we found it – 99% of our customers rate us highest for the quality of our clean-ups!

As we said, we understand that most people have simply never undertaken a window replacement project, or those who have will have generally done it once only. Unexpected issues invariably arise, and a lack of experience can lead to all sorts of unforeseen problems. Save yourself time, money and stress by calling the good guys the first time. North Georgia Replacement Windows takes pride in educating our customers on what to expect before, during, and after their window replacement project in Atlanta.

You will improve your home’s look, its value on the market, and the bottom line on your utility bills when you call North Georgia Replacement Windows! Call us- 770-888-1604 – we look forward to serving you!

Great News Atlanta! North Georgia Replacement Windows Has Hard-to-Find Options for Vinyl Windows!

Saturday, May 4th, 2013

brow_vinyl_window_atlanta_1Unfortunately, windows are not universal, and neither are the needs of a person looking for new windows. Many companies that sell and install replacement windows don’t ever bother with hard-to-find options in windows because they don’t think that it is worth their time to invest in them. North Georgia Replacement Windows,
however, does invest in hard-to-find options for our clientele so that we can confidently provide any window, anywhere, for anyone.

Solid brown vinyl windows inside and out

Speaking of hard to find options, North Georgia Replacement Windows is one of the only resources available to anybody looking for brown vinyl windows that have custom brown colors on both the interior and exterior of a home or building. Most companies that sell replacement windows can only offer coloring options for the exterior side of the windows and cannot afford you any options when it comes to having that same custom brown for the interior.

Other hard-to-find vinyl window options offered by North Georgia Replacement Windows

  • Simulated Divided Lite (SDL) grids are bonded to both sides of the glass with a shadow bar grid in between the panes to authenticate the look of an old divided lite wood window accurately.
  • Any color exterior including custom color matches
  • Paintable or Stainable interior wood grain interiors on vinyl windows

The maintenance-free vinyl windows Atlanta home owners love

Vinyl windows

Vinyl windows are a relatively new innovation within the window industry over last 20 years. These vinyl windows protect themselves by being immune to the infiltration issues associated with wooden windows. It still looks like wood but doesn’t need to be painted or maintained (except for cleaning). If you are looking to avoid the maintenance that often accompanies other window types, yet not sacrifice on efficiency or aesthetics, then NGRW’s vinyl windows are the perfect fit for your home.

Consider Your Window Sill Replacement Options before Settling

Saturday, May 4th, 2013

phpThumb

A window replacement installation doesn’t necessarily stop with the windows themselves; the ledges that give an additional edge of beauty, and sometimes function, could use an upgrade, too! Of course, we’re talking about the window sills.

Remodeled interior window sills can be just as valuable to your home as window pane improvements. Window sills add visual interest and, depending on their depth, may even serve as shelves to hold candles, figurines, pictures and other decor.

The aesthetics of interior window sills can be taken a step further with the materials of which they are made; there is a variety of compositions and colors that are available to match a home’s architecture, era, room size and type, and window style. These materials have transcended traditional wood window sills, allowing an expanse of creative possibilities.

Solid wood grain window sills are still in the running as a classic choice. A wash of varnish shows off the natural beauty of the wood, or a coat of colorful paint can easily make a space feel whimsical.

Natural stone window sills work well in high-humidity rooms such as a basement, bathroom, or kitchen. Granite and marble are two examples of natural stone that are both pretty and practical, while emanating luxury. Plus, stone sills are resistant to the sun’s rays and are easy to clean.

Particleboard windows sills are a modest choice if you like the look of solid wood, but not its price. Melamine is another material that mimics wood, but at an inexpensive cost.

Tile window sills are also a low-cost option. Made from ceramic or glass, these sills rival natural stone as far as easy maintenance and resistance to sunlight and moisture.

Vinyl window sills follow a contemporary trend. They are virtually maintenance-free and can sustain any type of damage. However, color-matching vinyl to your existing home decor may be difficult.

Whether your window sills are rotted or you simply want to dress them up with a remodel, any room in the house will benefit from a window sill replacement. North Georgia Replacement Windows will make sure the window sills in your home reflect the look and feel you aim to achieve alongside your replacement windows. Call 770-888-1604 for a free proposal.

Sealing the Deal: How to Avoid Surprise Costs with Replacement Windows

Saturday, May 4th, 2013

vinyl_windows_image

Purchasing replacement windows for your home is more than just flipping through a catalog, picking your favorite deigns, and them having them installed. There are many factors that go into choosing the right windows and it is important to know what you’re paying for, before you hire a contractor. Criteria such as the amount of windows needed for the house and level of energy efficiency all affect the price of a replacement window installation.

So, what can you expect when a contractor comes back to you with a proposal figure? Here are some examples of what influences how much you pay for replacement window installation services:

Size
The size of the windows is a major factor in price. If your home requires standard size windows, the cost is affordable. Overly large or odd-shaped windows will force a jump in cost, so expect to pay a little more for custom-built pieces or windows that require safety glass.

Material
Material matters when it comes to the efficacy of your windows. Vinyl is an inexpensive option that requires little maintenance. Fiberglass and wood clad windows are considered high-end materials, with wood requiring painting on the interior which increases the costs.

Insulation
Windows come in multiple insulation levels: double or triple pane glass with Low E coatings. The higher the insulation level, the higher the cost and the better the windows will perform to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Condition of Current Frames
Another consideration with the price of replacement window installation is the condition of your home’s existing window frames. Typically, the existing frame is used in a replacement window job. However, if there is damage to the frames, (if they are warped, moldy, or rotten) repairs or a total renovation may be in order. Of course, this can up the cost of installation.

Installation
Installation fees are also tacked on to the cost of replacement windows. Fees that cover removing and disposing of the old windows should also be included. Double-check with the window contractor to ensure that you know the costs of these additional services up-front with things like replacing rotted wood, exterior clean-up and painting.

double-hung-windowsAre Double-Hung Replacement Windows Right for Your Project?

Did you know that certain types of home window installations can help you save money on energy costs during those hot Georgia summers? Whether your house is undergoing a remodel or a series of repairs, choosing the right replacement windows for your project can make a difference in the look and feel of your home, as well as your wallet. If conserving money and energy without sacrificing the decorative details of your home are factors in deciding which windows to install, then double-hung replacement windows may be the solution.

Double-hung windows are the most common type of window in American homes. These windows make an attractive option because they are relatively inexpensive, complement other window styles well, may be installed to stand alone as a single unit or make an impact in multiples, and their construction allows for easy cleaning.

Perhaps the best feature of double-hung replacement windows is that they may be utilized as an energy-efficient method of cooling down your home in the summer. Simply lower the top sash three inches, raise the bottom sash three inches, and you have an electricity-free air conditioner! This works by directing humid air out the top crack of the window, while allowing cool air to flow into the house through the bottom portion.

North Georgia Windows provides a variety of double-hung replacement windows with advantages that include:

  • Tightly sealed weather-stripping to keep out dirt, noise, water and air
  • Hidden screen tracks that enhance the windows’ aesthetics
  • Drop-in glazing for an additional layer of energy efficiency
  • Easy-to-operate windows without the use of pulleys, weights and sash cords
