Bloomington Replacement Windows

Professional Bloomington replacement windows installers make sure that the installation of your replacement products is as secure as the windows themselves. Although many Illinois homeowners have successfully installed their own replacement windows, others feel more secure about the performance of their Bloomington replacement windows if they've been installed by professionals. To find expert installation at a price you can afford, compare quotes from several installers before you tackle this project alone.

Replacement of all of the windows in your home represents a sizable investment for most IL homeowners. Once you've spent the money to purchase your replacement windows, it pays to make sure that they're correctly installed. Installing an Illinois replacement window over a frame that's been damaged by dry rot or termites may provide no improvements in your air leakage or heat loss. To maximize the performance of Bloomington replacement windows, consider having them installed by an experienced, licensed contractor.

Glass Layering for Insulation

Bloomington is a family oriented Illinois community that offers its residents access to family amusement parks, a zoo and numerous outdoor recreational facilities. The city of Bloomington has been ranked as one of the top cities in the US for golf, and families in Bloomington enjoy a variety of outdoor sports. In the winters, homeowners and their families face cold, snowy days and nights. Cold temperatures, snow and ice won't have such an impact on your home if you invest in double or triple glazed Bloomington replacement windows.

The most basic glass used in Bloomington replacement windows has a single pane, which offers minimal protection against the temperature extremes that IL experiences. Single paned glass is used in some construction projects, often for commercial buildings. In climates where the weather is mild and temperate throughout the year, a single pane may be adequate for preventing heat loss in a home. However, one pane will not perform as efficiently as a double or triple pane.

Double and triple paned windows are made of two or three layers of sealed glass, with air or argon gas piped between the layers to form a protective buffer. Depending on the glazing treatment, the two or three panes of glass can insulate each other against heat loss, reduce solar heat gain or provide acoustic insulation against external noise. The technology behind Bloomington replacement windows has advanced to such a point that glass can be chosen to meet the specific requirements of your Bloomington home.

The U factor of a product measures the amount of heat lost through Bloomington replacement windows. The lower the U factor, the less heat transfers from the inside to the outside of your home. You can find the U factor, the solar heat gain coefficient, the air leakage factor and other ratings on products that feature the NFRC label. The NFRC, or National Fenestration Rating Council, evaluates the energy performance of products in an effort to make consumers aware of their efficiency.

Clad Wood Windows

Wood is a popular framing material for Bloomington Replacement windows because this natural insulator earns consistently high energy performance ratings. Wood is also easy to customize, and wooden replacement frames can be manufactured to fit openings of any size or shape. Wood can be painted to complement any exterior or interior color scheme, which is another strong selling point for IL homeowners who take pride in the curb appeal of their Bloomington homes.

On the down side, wood requires regular maintenance to protect the frames against the elements. In Bloomington, the effects of sun, rain and snow can damage your frames over the years. Clad frames consist of a wooden assembly covered with a layer of vinyl or aluminum to protect the assembly and prolong its longevity. A layer of vinyl or aluminum provides a weather resistant seal that allows you to enjoy the insulating properties of wood without the high maintenance requirements.

Vinyl replacing window units are highly weather resistant and energy efficient, but because vinyl cannot be painted, many homeowners prefer aluminum clad products, instead. Aluminum is a light, resilient metal that can be painted any color. Aluminum cladding keeps your wooden assembly secure against the damage caused by a humid climate, heat or cold. The aluminum layer is applied over the exterior of the frame, and the interior retains the natural appearance of the wood. The inside of the frame can be stained or painted to match your home's interior decor.
