Important considerations when selecting a window installer in Tampa

Apr 15th 2014 at 3:55 AM

Windows speak. They give character to your house. They add that zing to the exterior beauty of your house. But be it a French window or a vent, you need to ensure that besides adding a feel-good look and doing the basics of helping to balance the heat within and outside the house, a window of every size should also be able to protect your home from stormy weather.

Tampa in Florida, USA, has some of the most magnificent looking houses built in the days of yore that boast of massive window frames. Residents of these mansions who wish to refurbish the house to suit some of the modern tastes must consider replacing windows with good material panes, without losing its antique character. More so, it is important that these windows are replaced with frames that fit well and do not allow any space for water to accumulate during the rains.

This holds true for windows of all houses. Hence, whether you are building a new house or changing the windows of an existing building, ensure you hire the best house windows installation service in Tampa FL. The best service providers will make sure that the perimeter of your window frame is well sealed with waterproof membranes, metallic strips and caulks. A good window installer will take care to plug any gap between the window pane and the frame with high quality foam insulation to avoid any seepage of water as well as to protect the pane from rattling or cracking, especially during those nerve-wracking summery thunderstorms.

When opting for panes, ensure you check with your window installer on their energy efficiency. For a sub-tropical climate found in Tampa, it is best to look at panes that have two layers of metallic coating in the inner side of the glass surface. This enables the sun’s heat to reflect inside the house during winter and deflect during summer, thus keeping the house warm in cooler days and cool in the warmer months. For those looking at maximum energy efficiency, there are double-layered metal coated panes that come with an inner airspace filling of krypton, air and argon.

To make the house more energy efficient, you can opt for a combination of storm and screen glass panels. This often includes two movable panels that can be configured in several patterns to suit your requirement. Besides, they can also be removed to clean the interiors.

Window frames also come with energy efficient technologies. The oldest energy efficient material for framing is wood. Such is the conduction of heat and cold of wood that studies have found it to be 1,800 times more efficient than aluminum. Similar insulation properties are available in fiberglass composite framing material too. Fiberglass comes with the added benefits of no expansion or warping in the hot months, and no shrinking or turning brittle in the cooler months. Those looking for a more cost-effective energy saving option for framing can consider vinyl. They are not only durable but are also easy to clean and maintain.
