Faulty Vinyl Windows Begging for Help in 11209
129 98th St.
Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY
This home had an existing, older generation of vinyl windows that had warped plus they were incorrectly installed. The subpar installation by the previous contractor had resulted in an insecure and poorly sealed configuration.
It is important to understand that even the most technologically advanced and energy-efficient windows in the world will fall short of their performance potential if not installed correctly.
Fortunately, WindowFix knew exactly how to rectify the errors made by the previous contractor to ensure a secure and tightly sealed installation. This involved meticulous attention to detail and a comprehensive approach to reverse the previous mistakes.
By addressing these issues, we aimed to create an environment where the new windows could perform optimally and deliver the intended benefits.
Kensington High-Performance products were the go-to choice for this particular project. Their windows are designed with a multitude of advanced features.
One notable feature is the incorporation of a foam-filled frame and sash, which not only provides exceptional insulation but also contributes to the overall structural integrity of the windows.
These windows also feature dual interlocks, further enhancing their durability and security. These interlocks ensure a tight seal, preventing air and moisture infiltration, and minimizing heat loss or gain.
This not only contributes to the energy efficiency of the windows but also provides added peace of mind for homeowners concerned about the security of their property.
Another key element of these windows is the use of Low E Glass with Suspended Film. This specialized glass coating helps to minimize heat transfer, effectively reducing the amount of energy required to maintain a comfortable indoor environment.
By mitigating heat loss during colder months and reducing heat gain during warmer periods, these windows contribute significantly to energy savings and overall comfort.
To further enhance their thermal performance, Krypton gas is incorporated into the insulated glass of these windows. Krypton gas is known for its exceptional insulating properties, as it has a higher density than air, resulting in reduced heat transfer through the glass panes.
This feature significantly improves the overall energy efficiency of the windows and helps maintain a consistent indoor temperature.
It is the combination of these innovative features that allows these windows to deliver a high thermal value with energy saving glass. With impressive R-values reaching as high as 5.5 and U-values as low as 0.17, these windows are at the forefront of energy efficiency.
The R-value measures the thermal resistance of the windows, indicating how well they insulate against heat transfer. The lower the U-value, the better the window’s resistance to heat flow.
This residential window solution makes them a top choice for homeowners looking to maximize energy savings and reduce their carbon footprint.
Despite their exceptional qualities, vinyl windows remain somewhat of a hidden gem in the residential window market. Many homeowners are unaware of the significant benefits these windows offer in terms of energy efficiency, durability, and aesthetics.
By investing in replacement windows, homeowners can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a secure and tightly sealed installation, as well as the substantial energy savings that result from their superior thermal performance.
Ultimately, the decision to replace the existing vinyl windows was a transformative upgrade for the residence.
By rectifying the previous installation errors and ensuring a secure fit, WindowFix made sure the new windows were able to perform at their peak efficiency.
With features such as foam-filled frames, dual interlocks, Low E Glass with Suspended Film, and Krypton gas insulation, these high-performance vinyl windows delivered superior thermal values and provided a range of benefits for homeowners.
