    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.

  • Window World – Installation

    Installation of a vinyl window is not a task for a beginner or amateur do-it-yourselfer. Windows need to be installed plumb, level and square. They need to “float” in the actual rough opening. Concentrated loads can distort window frames and cause a poor fit that allows air and/or water infiltration. To achieve the best fit and finish, your windows should be installed by factory trained employees of the window company. The average homeowner doesn’t have the tools or experience to achieve a first class installation.

    For A Perfect Finish

    New windows require a certain level of skill to insure that the fit, operation and finish are perfect. Vinyl replacement windows present extra challenges. Removing an existing window can be a huge task if you don’t have the right tools. Existing (and even new houses!) houses can have out of square window openings . The restoration of interior plaster and trim surfaces requires significant coordination and special tools. Exterior caulking, interior insulation installation, etc. all must be accomplished perfectly or you will have a mess – and a drafty window – on your hands.
