Northgate Replacement Windows

Northgate replacement windows comes in an endless array of styles to enhance the home's curb appeal. Homes in the Northgate neighborhood of Phoenix, AZ, are designed in a distinctly Southwest style inspired by Mission Revival architecture. This design utilizes many windows on the home that allow plentiful natural light and add visual interest to the home's exterior.

The more windows a home has, the more maintenance is required. Northgate replacement windows require some care to maximize their longevity. Good quality Phoenix window replacement can last 30 years or longer with the proper upkeep. The initial investment on Northgate replacement windows can be substantial, but the best quality windows offer equal or greater return on investment in the form of lower energy bills and increased market value.

Attractive Window Design

The design of the window should complement the architecture of the home. A window scheme that is incongruous with the style of the home can detract from its looks, which can negatively impact the return on investment. Northgate homes in this modern Mission Revival style often feature tall, arched replacement windows. Others play off of the boxy, geometric lines of the home with an all-rectangular window scheme.

Placing a floor-to-ceiling window strategically in the home can make a room appear larger with higher ceilings. These also let in natural light that eliminates the need for artificial lights during the day. The trade-off is the solar heat that can enter the home through a large window. Be sure to select Northgate replacement windows that have a low U-factor and a low solar heat gain coefficient to block the sun's heat.

Many homeowners choose operable Northgate replacement windows to provide natural ventilation. These come at somewhat of an extra cost compared to a window that is fixed, but the operability gives Northgate residents the freedom to open and close a window as they please. These can filter warm, stale air out on the hottest days of the brutal Arizona summer and let in cool nighttime air during milder seasons.

There are several operable window designs for Northgate residents to choose from. A sash window slides open vertically or horizontally. These are commonly found on Northgate homes. Casements swing open on a hinge, a stylish option for Spanish Colonial style homes that are found all over AZ.

A variation on the Arizona casement that makes a strong design statement is an awning window with a Bermuda shutter, which swings outward from a hinge on top. These are useful for filtering out warm air while keeping the window shaded by the shutter. All of these options can be manufactured with energy efficient glass to keep the home cool no matter the size or number of the Northgate replacement windows.

Caring for Replacement Windows

Keeping a replacement window clean and functional are necessary steps in protecting your investment. When they are well-kept, Northgate replacement windows are eye-catching from the inside and out. Attractive windows can also make or break a home sale, so Northgate residents who plan to sell in the future should consider a window's impact on home value.

The weatherstripping on a window is designed to minimize air and water leakage. This keeps cool air in and hot air, dust and rain out. Check the weatherstrip periodically, and replace it if it becomes worn or loose.

Caulking also seals the window, so check it regularly. This provides a barrier between the wall and the replacement window where air and water transfer can occur. Repair gaps in the caulk and trim the loose caulk to keep the window at its highest performance.

Do an annual inspection the interior and exterior finish of every window. The outside of a window frame is constantly exposed to the elements, so it can wear rather quickly. The Arizona dry heat can damage paint and crack vinyl, which can lead to structural problems down the road. Casements are especially vulnerable because both the insides and outsides are exposed when they are open. Repair or replace any damaged parts or finishes to keep the units working well and looking nice.

Northgate replacement windows only stay fully operable when they are cleaned properly. Dirt and paint can cause sticking and obstruct the tracks on sliders and sashes. Clean the tracks several times each year and lubricate them with a silicone spray at least once a year. This keeps them sliding smoothly. Casements also need their hinges lubricated on occasion, so inspect them periodically to test performance.

Northgate replacement windows are built for style and efficiency. Good quality window installments are beautiful additions to the home that can improve comfort and reduce cooling costs.
