Giving Thanks!

As the scent of turkey starts to waft through the air, and we find ourselves hankering after some cranberry sauce, we thought we’d revisit one of our favorite blog posts ever:

Happy Thanksgiving from the US Home Improvement Team. On this special day, we’d like to express our gratitude to our customers, the manufacturers we work with, and of course, the readers of this blog!

Good home replacement windows offer homeowners many benefits to be thankful for. It’s amazing how opting for vinyl home replacement windows, fiberglass home replacement windows, or wood home replacement windows can enhance a homeowner’s enjoyment of their home. Upgrading from single pane glass windows or original construction windows to windows that feature double or triple pane glass can make a home more comfortable and energy efficient. Additionally, home replacement windows can make a home more attractive!

Comfort is perhaps the most important benefit home replacement windows offer. Double or triple pane glass, rigid quality frame materials, and installation performed by manufacturer’s authorized teams combine to virtually eliminate air and moisture penetration. This means no cold drafts. Interior temperatures can be more easily regulated, ensuring all family members remain comfortable.

The energy efficiency afforded by vinyl home replacement windows, fiberglass home replacement windows, and wood home replacment windows is truly something homeowners can be thankful for. By retaining warmed air, home replacement windows mean the heating system runs less often, requiring less fule. This saves the homeowner money.

Energy efficient homes are good for everyone — not just the homeowner. As global fuel prices continue to rise, any decrease in demand — no matter how small — is welcome economic news. A pretty grand effect, for a simply vinyl home replacement window.

Additionally, conserving energy and especially fossil fuels is good for the environment. It seems clear that weather patterns are changing — as these words are being written, snow’s forecast for Texas — and in response, many h omeowners have become extremely conscious of their impact on the planet. Known as a carbon footprint, the environmental impact of one family upon the earth can be reduced by living in an efficient home. Home replacement windows make a home far more energy efficient.

Aesthetic considerations — how attractive a home is, when viewed by neighbors, friends, family members and the homeowner — can be addressed by home replacement windows. Our homes are one of the ways we express ourselves. Much of our personalities and sense of self can be conveyed by the choices we make in our homes. Home replacement windows are available in a staggering array of styles, from classic and traditional to cutting edge and modern.

Style is one question, and quality is another. The quality of the windows in your home speaks volumes about your personal style and values. Cheap, flimsy windows — or the throwaway original construction windows favored by builders in a hurry — simply do not send a good message. Thankfully, home replacement windows offer an attractive, affordable alternative.

Enhanced security is another feature of home replacement windows that homeowners can be thankful for. Time and time again, home invaders and individuals with bad intentions have forced flimsy windows to gain entry — with tragic results. Vinyl home replacement windows, fiberglass home replacement windows, and wood home replacement windows feature rigid frames and strong hardware, making unwanted entry efforts harder — and the bad guys don’t like life to be difficult. If it’s not easy, they move on!

Comfort, energy efficiency, attractiveness, and security — all benefits of home replacement windows that homeowners can be thankful for.

Every word in that post was true a year ago, and every word in it is true today. In fact, a year later, we find that we have even more to be thankful for.  Yes, the economy has been on a crazy loop, zooming up and down with no rhyme and reason.  But the value of vinyl replacement windows is as strong and  attractive today as it was twelve months ago!
