Greenspoint Replacement Windows

Greenspoint replacement windows are a great investment for residents of this burgeoning business and residential district of Houston, TX. Greenspoint was established by the Texas legislature in the 1990s as an organized community of industries and residences to attract quality commercial and residential growth and development. This self-contained community is home to many young professionals and families. Installing Greenspoint replacement windows can be an easy remodeling project for young professionals with disposable income for making home improvements.

Replacement Window Screens

When having Greenspoint replacement windows installed, look for window screens as well. A screen keeps bugs, birds, animals and debris from entering the home when the windows are open, an important factor for homeowners who enjoy the fresh air during the mild spring and fall. Having an open window in the warmer months can help save on utility bills as well.

Most screens are made of aluminum or fiberglass. Houston aluminum window screens are manufactured in their natural metallic color or a charcoal color. The charcoal is less visible, which enhances curb appeal and the view from inside, two important factors for Greenspoint residents. Fiberglass will not dent on impact, but it tends to be more visible and less durable than aluminum.

In addition to insect screening, some manufacturers offer denser screens that block some sunlight and reduce heat gain. These are convenient for the warm summer months in TX, as they can help reduce cooling bills. Some solar screens are also designed to be appear more opaque from the outside, so it is easy to see out but difficult to see in. These offer more privacy than standard screens.

Measuring for Installation

Greenspoint contractors will take the appropriate measurements before installing Greenspoint replacement windows, but homeowners who wish to make window installation a do-it-yourself project should measure carefully. Improper measurements lead to the hassle of ordering new Texas windows or, if the order is non-refundable, expanding the rough openings. Expanding the rough openings means making structural changes to the home, an undertaking that requires considerable experience.

To measure for the width of the replacement window, measure from the inside of the jamb on one side of the window to the inside of the jamb on the other side. The jamb is the wood frame inside the interior trim, the outermost part of the window structure inside the home. Take this measurement at the top of the window, the middle and the bottom because the existing window may not fit perfectly in its opening. Use the narrowest measure of the three when ordering, as wider parts can be filled.

To measure for the height of your Greenspoint replacement windows, measure from the top of the sill to the bottom of the head jamb. As with the width, take this measure three times across the window. Use the shortest measure to ensure the replacement is a tight fit.

The rough openings for wood windows should generally be 2 inches higher and 2 inches wider than the rough opening. The extra space allows for insulation and for the shims and blocking needed to plumb and level the window. Aluminum and vinyl replacement windows are often undersized so their measurements match those of the rough opening. Always consult the manufacturer's instructions on measuring before ordering Greenspoint replacement windows.

Storm Windows

The best investment in Greenspoint replacement windows is installation of the top-of-the-line in energy efficiency, but this is a costly endeavor. If the initial investment is too much to swallow, installing a storm window is an efficient, economical option. New or replacement Greenspoint storm windows go over the existing window, so minimal remodeling is required.

It is much less expensive to have a storm window installed inside the window. They require less maintenance because they are not exposed to the elements like those on the exterior of the home. A storm window reduces air leakage and convection by providing a barrier to the extreme outdoor temperatures, which can help save on energy bills.

Storm window materials are typically glass or plastic. Glass is durable and offers better visibility, but it is more costly and fragile. Plastic is an economical choice, but it is prone to scratching and yellowing over time.Overall, storm window replacement are a good option in the short term while you plan to have energy efficient Greenspoint replacement windows installed.

Enhance your view of the Greenspoint community with replacements that can be opened and closed in pleasant weather. Screens give owners and renters the flexibility to let in fresh air without the nuisance of insects. Greenspoint residents will also find value in making their replacements as energy efficient as possible. Storm window installation is a viable stop gap measure, but new energy-efficient Greenspoint replacement windows are the best investment.
