Rapid Replacement Windows

Rapid replacement windows give you and your loved ones the protection you need against the cold South Dakota winters. Replacement windows with a high R value offer a high level of resistance to heat loss, which translates into more comfortable interior temperatures and lower utility bills for your Rapid household. Double or triple paned, high R value windows can keep your rooms well insulated, even on bitterly cold SD days.

Rapid is the second largest city in South Dakota. Known as the Gateway to the Black Hills, Rapid is situated against slopes of the Black Hills mountain range. Because of its proximity to Mount Rushmore and other famous SD attractions, Rapid is a center of tourism in South Dakota. Many of the homeowners in this community are employed by branches of the federal, local or state governments. When it comes to preventing energy loss and cold winter drafts, Rapid replacement windows are a wise investment.

Replacement Windows Styles

Rapid encompasses a number of suburbs, and its homes reflect a range of architectural styles. The design of Rapid replacement windows should complement both the interior and the exterior of your home. Retrofitting a house by installing Rapid replacement windows can increase the property's curb appeal while maximizing its resale value. Explore your options thoroughly to find a set of replacement windows that reflects your personal tastes as well as your SD home's insulation needs.

Casement, awning, double hung and sliding windows are among the most popular replacement styles for Rapid houses. Each of these styles offers its own benefits or disadvantages, and each design can be customized to modify and enhance its appearance. The casement style is one of the oldest window models available, dating back to the early history of residential architecture. Casements open outward like doors from hinged edges, giving you excellent airflow and a large expanse of unobstructed views.

The awning style is similar to the casement in that one edge is hinged to allow the sash to open outward. Awning Rapid replacement windows open out from the hinged upper horizontal edge, like the awning of a commercial building. Awnings provide ventilation along with protection against rain, dust or debris. Double hung models have two operable sashes, either of which can be adjusted to allow the homeowner to modulate temperature and air flow.

Sliding replacement products may represent the most contemporary design. Many models have one fixed panel and one gliding unit, but some feature double gliding sashes. The sash slides along a track, which must be kept free from dust and debris in order to allow efficient movement. Sliding models give a home a modern look, while providing unbroken views and quiet operation. Any of these common styles is available in vinyl, wood, fiberglass or aluminum, with accents such as decorative grilles or customized hardware to customize the products.

Aluminum Clad Replacement Windows

Aluminum, vinyl, wood and fiberglass Rapid replacement windows all have different properties, which affect their energy performance as well as their visual appearance. Aluminum is a popular framing material for commercial buildings, especially for large panes that require the support of an exceptionally strong frame. This lightweight metal is known for its strength relative to its weight, which makes it popular in some areas of the country.

In spite of its many positive attributes, aluminum is generally not the first choice for Rapid replacement windows, because this metal is not an efficient insulator. In warmer climates, where keeping homes warm is not as important as keeping them cool, aluminum tends to be more popular. In the Black Hills region, where winters are long and cold, solid aluminum Rapid replacement windows would not provide the protection that a household needs in the colder months.

Aluminum clad frames, on the other hand, are a popular alternative for homeowners who appreciate the beauty and insulating potential of wood, but who want to protect their wooden frames against the elements. Aluminum clad frames are covered with metal on the exterior aspect, which is exposed to the wind, snow and variable temperatures of the area. On the interior aspect of the frames, the wood is exposed, allowing homeowners to enjoy its appearance and paint or stain the wood any color they choose.

Window maintenance is an important consideration when you're purchasing new Rapid City replacement windows. If you have a busy lifestyle, select a product that offers longevity without high maintenance requirements. Vinyl is a durable, long lasting product that will last for years with very little upkeep. Consider your needs, your budget and the style of your property when you're searching for products that will enhance the beauty and energy efficiency of your home in the years ahead.
