FAQs

How long have you been in business?

What is a retro-fit replacement window?

A retro-fit window is a window that is custom built to fit inside the perimeter of your existing window opening, without causing any drywall or stucco damage. The beauty of the retro window is that it is much quicker and cheaper than busting out stucco and completely removing your existing window. The construction mess is also greatly minimized.

What is Low-E (Low-Emissivity) Glass?

Low-E is a virtually clear, low-emissivity coating applied to one pane of the dual pane unit. This microscopically thin coating filters the sun's energy in the summer and reduces heat loss in the winter. Additionally, Low-E glass helps to protect carpet and furniture fading by reducing infrared and ultraviolet light.

Do you subcontract your work?

Is there any stucco or drywall damage caused by installation of replacement windows?
