A true replacement window is custom-built to fit within the opening of an existing window. It’s built to fit precisely and can be installed without disturbing the interior and exterior areas around the window. Since custom windows are made to fit precisely, they are the most energy efficient.
In most cases, our factory-trained crews can replace every window in one day. Since each window is custom built to fit your current window openings, there is no need for “wall surgery,” so you’ll avoid the mess and inconvenience of a lengthy installation process.
We recommend partnering with a window company that manufactures their own energy efficient products, has a proven reputation for quality products and customer service, and provides a comprehensive warranty on every product they sell – including installation and labor.
It also makes sense to work with a company that manufactures their products locally, which saves a significant amount on shipping charges. At Thompson Creek, we are accountable for the entire process from window design through installation. Additionally, we participate in the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) certification and labeling process, as well as the ENERGY STAR® program.
There is no set rate to determine the cost of your new replacement windows. We recommend requesting a free no obligation quote, which includes a consultation with one of our experts. At the end of that consultation, you will receive a written proposal with the finished price and any available financing options.
Low-emissivity, or low-e glass, is a very thin coat of material that reflects heat away from the window’s surface, keeping heat out in the summer and inside in the winter. Low-e glass is the most cost-effective way to increase the efficiency of your windows. It can also help reduce the amount of ultraviolet radiation entering your home, reducing discoloration or fading to your furniture and carpet.
ENERGY STAR® is an independent U.S. government program that establishes a set of guidelines to recognize the energy efficiency of various products. ENERGY STAR® guidelines are used for a variety of building materials including windows and doors. Over the past 10 years, ENERGY STAR® guidelines have helped double the efficiency of the windows they endorse.
The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) sets all performance standards, product certification and educational programs for the window industry. When a product passes AAMA tests, it guarantees reliable performance if properly installed.
The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) is a non-profit organization created by the Department of Energy and the window and door industry. The NFRC provides energy performance ratings on windows and doors. The NFRC label on a window or door informs consumers about a product’s U-factor, which takes into account a product’s ability to block warming caused by sunlight, light transmittance and air leakage through cracks in the product’s assembly.
This depends on various factors, such as how many windows you currently have, the windows’ age and condition, wall and attic insulation, as well as how you use other items in your home that use energy. Thompson Creek windows exceed ENERGY STAR® standards and can help lower heating and cooling bills.
Almost without exception, new windows, siding, doors and gutters will add significant value to your property. First, when it’s time to sell your home, the new buyer will negotiate your asking price downward when they factor in the cost of windows, siding or gutters that will need to be repaired or replaced. Second, studies show that the two most important items on a new homebuyer’s list are energy efficiency and less exterior maintenance. According to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report, a homeowner can recoup a significant portion of the cost of a typical window replacement project.
