A: Tempered glass is a type of safety glass made of heat strengthened glass. If the glass is ever broken it will simply crystallize into very small particles, reducing the risk of personal injury or property damage from falling shards of glass. Some states or localities may require tempered glass for windows that are close to the floor. An up charge must be added for windows that require tempered glass. If you know of a window in your home that will require tempered glass, please indicate it when you call or come in for pricing.

Depending on your location, it is usually a matter of weeks before the new windows will be ready to go in. An average home takes one day to completely install the finished windows. Of course this depends on the difficulty of the installation at your home and the number of windows you have.

If you keep the humidity in your house low, then the likelihood of experiencing condensation is also low. However, the efficiency of your window will also impact the temperature and humidity level at which condensation occurs. Energy efficient windows will help reduce condensation.
Here’s why: high performance windows with low U-factors result in inside glass surface temperatures much closer to the room air temperature. Windows with warm edge technologies and non-metal frames are also less likely to have condensation on the frame or at the edge of the glass.
A: You shouldn’t because it will void the manufactures warranty on the frame material and may cause the material to warp. However, we offer factory applied color finishes on our windows.
