Easy Window Cleaning
Check out just how easy cleaning new vinyl windows can be! Often times we only think of cleaning the glass but that's because of how hard it is to clean older window frames and tracks.
Retrofit vs New Construction Windows
This week, Duncan quickly discusses the difference between Retrofit installation and New Construction installation. While there are differences in the installation process there are also additional aspects to consider such as the original frame opening and product. These can contribute to an altered installation process but the basics remain the same: Set, Seal, and Trim!
When is it Time to Replace Your Sliding Door?
Duncan talks about some of his experiences with sliding door replacements. We often find people are not aware of just how poorly old aluminum sliding doors function. While aluminum doors start to stick as they corrode over time, the new vinyl doors can slide just using one finger!
What Are Replacement Windows?
In this video, Duncan explains what a replacement window is and how it is built for installation over your existing window frame. Many people ask us this question because there can be some confusion around the scale of the construction project. This explanation is for retrofit windows and Duncan also details the differences between the kind of work necessary for retrofit vs new construction.
