Window Contractors Erie PA

Windows show the character of a home almost as much as the exterior finishes. They protect your family from outside elements and keep your house cozy. But, they do a whole lot more than just stop the wind and the rain. A properly installed window will insulate against excessive temperature swings and reduce your energy bills. Different window styles give you different aesthetics and serve different functions.

Bauer Specialty contractors have the knowledge and experience to make sure you’re choosing the right window for the job. They will take into consideration what you want to achieve from the installation of your new windows, and they will make suggestions to suit your needs. They are professionals who work with many styles and can have your windows in place quickly.

Styles

On any project, it’s important to choose the right tool for the job. The same can be said for windows. Specific windows serve specific jobs, and choosing the wrong one can cost you in efficiency and maintenance costs.

  • Double Hung - These are the windows you see in most homes; they allow you to slide the (usually) bottom panel up for fresh air.

  • Venting - These are common in finished basements; they allow for a little fresh air and natural light, but they aren’t large.

  • Sliders - These windows have a half-panel that slides to the side.

  • Casements - These windows are attached by a hinge and can swing open. They’re often more energy efficient than slider windows.

  • Bay Windows - These are often used to frame a great outdoor view, like a beautiful landscape or garden.

  • Garden - These small windows are popular near the kitchen sink in many homes, giving a space for a natural greenhouse effect for growing kitchen herbs or flowers.

  • Specialty - These windows are custom created to fit irregular nooks and spaces in your home.

Energy Efficiency

Depending on the age of your home, your windows may be costing you a ton of money. According to some studies, inefficient windows can be responsible for up to 25-30% of residential heating and cooling costs.

New windows can reduce your energy bills significantly and mitigate future maintenance issues you’ll run into with older windows. For example, double-pane energy-efficient windows can reduce condensation and mildew growth seen with traditional single-pane windows.
