Energy efficient double pane windows can significantly reduce your home energy costs. This positively impacts the environment and can qualify you for tax incentives.

Low-E glass reflects heat during the winter and retains cool air, which helps to lower your heating costs. The secondary urethane seal and warm-edge Super Spacer technology help to make this window option even more energy efficient.


Unlike double hung windows that open vertically casements are hinged on one side and opened using a mechanical crank. They are extremely airtight and a good choice for energy conscious homeowners but do require more frequent opening and closing which can cause wear and tear on the window’s hardware. New models are more user friendly and have better equipped cranks that are less likely to fail overtime.

They are great for bringing in light and accentuating your home’s view. They are also an excellent option for southern-facing walls to maximize natural light, which can lower your utility bills and brighten up any room.


Bays are a beautiful addition to any home. They offer more natural light and a cozy feel than standard windows. They’re also easy to clean and maintain. You can open them to let in fresh air on a rainy day without it soaking your interior.

Double pane windows are known for their energy efficiency. They use new technologies that incorporate insulating gases, like argon, between the two window panes. This increases their insulating value and keeps heat in during the winter.

Single-pane windows, on the other hand, allow heat and cold to pass through easily, raising heating costs and making it difficult to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. Double-pane windows also offer better noise insulation and are less susceptible to seal failure.


Designed with four or more windows that curve inward to open up the space and provide three-dimensional views, bow windows create a spacious area perfect for breakfast nooks and afternoon reading areas. They also help brighten rooms and make them feel larger by letting sunlight stream into the home.

The double-pane windows in our bow and bay window configurations offer a great deal of versatility, as the opening areas can be opened or closed to control air flow and temperature. They are also extremely energy efficient with their argon gas and Low-E glass, helping to reduce heating costs during the winter and cooling costs in the summer.

Prioritizing energy efficiency can be a game-changer when it comes to your window replacement project. Unsealed, inefficient windows let too much heat escape during the winter, forcing your heater to work harder and costing you more money.


As their name suggests, transom windows appear above door frames and add extra natural light to entryways. They also enhance architectural appeal, making rooms and hallways look grander.

They’re often paired with sidelights, tall and narrow fixed windows on either side of the front door, to frame a larger entryway. They work well in homes with standard eight-foot ceilings but aren’t suitable for homes with vaulted or soaring ceilings.

Transom windows are available in a variety of shapes to fit your home’s style. Round and elliptical transoms pair nicely with Craftsman or Victorian houses while rectangular replacement windows complement more contemporary styles. They can also be designed to fit specific styles by adding a rounded top or ornate details. These windows remain inoperable but add beauty and a sense of majesty to an entryway.

Storm Windows

Often less expensive than replacement windows, storm windows improve home energy efficiency without removing original sashes or changing the appearance. Wood or aluminum storm frames fit into the outer window casing, with one or more acrylic panels in the middle. A compression seal and weatherstripping ensure an airtight fit, while magnets or springs hold the acrylic panels in place.

Most companies that install double-pane windows can also offer you a full line of storm windows, with options for both wood and aluminum frames, as well as acrylic or low-e glass panels. Many have features like argon gas for insulation, which helps reduce how much your furnace has to work to keep your house warm in winter. They can also be custom-sized to fit your original window openings.
