Home Maintenance & Hand Tools : How to Measure Window Sizes

One of the first things to do when looking for replacement windows is to measure the size of the windows you're looking to replace. If you haven't done this before, there are some factors you'll want to take into consideration when doing your measurements.

In this video, Tim Gipson leads you through the correct process to determine the size of the replacement windows you'll want to buy. If you know what you're looking for, this should only take you a few minutes to do, but measuring incorrectly may cost you time and money.

If you want it done right the first time, then let Window World come out to your home for a free in-home consultation. Our window installers will tell you the sizes you need, and help you find the perfect windows for your home.

French Doors

One of the more elegant door options offered by Window World is the French door style. Usually opening into the house, French doors are unique because they allow for both doors to swing open, creating a wider walkway, and letting in a larger amount of light and airflow than a traditional doorway. Because of the large amount of glass within the door structure, French doors are more of a luxurious design leading to a patio or an alternate room.

Choosing the right Premium Garage Door system can make a major impact on your home, and Window World Garage Doors provide the perfect balance between looks and rugged functionality.

We’re thrilled for Mike and, of course, our friends at Andretti Autosport, who generously donated the car sponsorship to Window World Cares. We’re so happy to be affiliated with another one of Andretti Autosport’s class act drivers.

Eligible participants have until May 1 to enter to win a trip to the Indy 500, and the chance to win a cool $1 million if the Window World car crosses the finish line first once more – this time with John Andretti behind the wheel.

Qualities to Look for in a Great Window Installation Company

Finding a window installer to put in your replacement windows isn't difficult, especially with modern technology.  While it’s easy to find a window installation company, how do you know you’re getting a good one?   Your search for a reliable window installer will be a lot easier if you keep a few critical things in mind as you look.

 

  • Ask each window installer you talk to for an estimate, and compare them. Ask about the warranty each company offers for its replacement windows. Make sure the installer is insured. Ask what they do to ensure that each window is energy-efficient.

 

  • The longer the company has been around, the better. A window installer with experience is going to be better equipped to handle a variety of window situations than one that's in its first year of business. Also, ask about the team's level of experience; you don't want to work with a company where all of the window installers were hired last month.

 

  • The quality of the window matters. Ask the window installer about the supplier they get their replacement windows from, and check to make sure that the supplier is a reputable company that uses solid, durable materials. If you're uncomfortable with the price you're quoted on your windows, ask if they have more cost-effective window replacement options available.

Tips for Maximizing Your Home’s Energy Efficiency After Installing Replacement Windows

Adding energy-efficient replacement windows to your home is a great first step toward conserving the total amount of energy that you expend. But it's not the only step you need to take; energy can be wasted almost anywhere in your home, and the evidence can be seen in your utility bills every month.

 As your replacement windows are being installed, take a look around your home. Where are you wasting energy?

  • Check your home for air leaks. Electrical outlets, attic hatches, mail slots, and mounted air conditioners are all possible sources of air leaks, and preventing them can increase your energy savings by up to 30 percent.

 

  • Make sure that your doors are properly sealed; even one leak can be an enormous waste. You will want a door sweep to ensure that no air can leak out under your door, and you'll also want to check the seals on all your doors and any replacement windows regularly to ensure that they don't have any leaks.

 

  • Many homeowners inadvertently spend more than they need to on lighting. Consider replacing some of your light bulbs with lower-watt ones, or compact fluorescent bulbs. Simply turning off lights when no one is in the room isn't a bad idea, either.

 

  • You might consider having a home energy assessment, or audit, done by an energy professional. This is an excellent way to identify which specific areas in your home are wasting energy.

High-Performance Exterior Laminate Technology

Laminate technology is no stranger to the rigors of performance testing. Introduced in Europe in the 1970s, this process has been perfected over the decades and long proven for outstanding strength, durability and lasting beauty.

Window World Color Collection's triple-layer composition expertly marries a highly resilient, transparent double layer of protection consisting of PVDF and PMMA materials to an acrylic base layer to form an extremely weatherable surface that maintains its attractive appearance over the life of the product.

Primer on the back side of the laminate combined with a specialty polyurethane adhesive permanently bonds the laminate finish to the window substrate. This fully cross-linked adhesive will not allow the laminate to separate from the window, despite exposure to extreme heat, cold, or other environmental elements.

How To Fix a Broken Window Lock

We've all been the victim of a broken window lock.  Below are just a few ways to fix a broken window lock the next time the situation arises.

  1. Unable to lock the window.
    Unlock the window completely. Push the upper sash upward, as far as it will move and pull the lower sash to the bottom of the window. Once both sashes are in their proper positions you will be able to engage the lock.
  2. The top sash has dropped from its pocket
    Push the upper sash all the way to the top while at the same time pushing the lower sash down. NOTE: You may need an additional person to aid you. This should align and allow you to engage the window lock.
  3. The sashes are not aligned correctly in the channel
    Tilt each sash in as if you are cleaning the windows. Push both sashes firmly back into the window channel. This should align the sash and allow the window to lock properly.
  4. Balance shoe is disengaged
    If the balance shoe becomes disengaged from the sash, the window will not lock because it is misaligned. To correct this situation, please refer to the section on"Windows Dropping Down".

If the instructions listed above do not correct the problem, please call Window World  for further assistance.

Maintenance Tips for Keeping Your New Replacement Windows looking Great

If you’re like most people, your replacement windows have made an extremely positive impact on your home in many ways.  They have enhanced the appearance of your exterior, have added to your home’s energy efficiency, and have—literally—helped brighten your life. 

So why not keep them looking great?  Here are some maintenance tips for your replacement windows.

garden-windows-1

Clean

Keeping your windows clean will go a long way toward improving the view and helping let the light in.  By using a window-specific cleaning solution and a soft, clean rag once a week, you will keep the glass looking great.

Frame

From time to time, your window’s frame may require a new coating of paint if you notice any chipping or fading.  You may want to speak with your window installer if your windows are still under warranty.

Coatings

Always be sure to ask your window installer about e-coatings, because they enhance your replacement windows’ ability to insulate and help to reduce your energy bills.

New replacement windows often have a coating in between the layers of glass, but if the coating is on the outside, then ask if it requires maintenance or replacement to retain its insulation qualities.

Weather-Stripping

Occasionally you’ll want to check on the weather-stripping of your replacement windows, because the rubber seals tend to loosen over time and create leaks and insulation problems. This is why it’s important to use a quality window installer for your window replacements.

At Window World of Central Florida, we offer the best replacement windows available to keep your home looking spectacular.  Also, be sure to ask us about our energy-efficient models and how you can start lowering your energy bills.  Just give us a call or visit our website today.
