Not all replacement windows are alike, and some of them have much more to offer than others. Elite Window Solutions specializes in the highest-quality wood and vinyl replacement windows. So our windows are not only beautiful; they’re also energy-efficient, durable, and backed with a lifetime warranty. We’re proud to install these windows throughout Richmond, Chesterfield, Midlothian, Powhatan, and the surrounding area.
Take our vinyl windows, for example. These windows feature elegant narrow-line construction that features less frame and sash and more glass, providing the best sight-lines in the industry. Despite their light profiles, advanced construction provides these windows with exceptional strength. Window frames are thermally-optimized and the glass is dual-pane with argon gas and low-E film; all of these features minimize energy-transfer. Most importantly: Our windows meet the stringent 2015 ENERGY STAR® requirements.
When it comes to the design of our windows, no detail is too small to be refined. End-of-throw cam shifts provide window locking actions with extra strength and protection. Interlocking sash-to-sill technology creates windows that form a unified wall of strength and protection. Sloped sill dams direct water runoff away from the pane, helping to keep the exterior of the window clean and attractive.
With windows like these, it’s no wonder that that we’re able to back them with a lifetime warranty. In fact, we back all of our wood and vinyl windows with a triple-lifetime warranty, and we’re the only window dealer in Richmond to do it.
Today’s replacement windows offer unprecedented energy-efficiency, protection, and innovation, making them a better investment than ever. Why not make an investment in the value and functionality of your home that you’ll get to enjoy each and every day? Call Elite Windows today!
Replacement Windows & Your Home
Have you ever put in more thought than just the appearance of a replacement window? There are many other factors to consider when deciding upon a replacement window installer in Richmond, but one thing many homeowners don’t realize is a very common problem: condensation on windows. When condensation forms on a window, it is generally a sign of excessive humidity within your home. Think of taking a hot shower without any kind of fan or ventilation system running. Condensation quickly builds up on the mirrors and other glass in the room. It is the same concept for windows.
Excessive moisture and condensation build-up on windows is a bad thing, and can pose some serious risks to both your home and your family’s health. Many don’t realize that condensation on windows can severely affect the structural integrity of the window frame, the glass, and the home materials surrounding it. Whenever moisture and wood are introduced, the results are never pleasant: cracking, warping, and distortion are just a few problems. When excessive moisture and condensation becomes a constant presence on your windows interior panes, this can also begin to form the foundation for mold, mildew, and fungus build up, which is the absolute last thing you want. Having a high-quality set of windows installed is vital to reducing moisture and condensation build up and ensuring your home and family’s health and longevity.
