Quality trained and experienced window installers

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, there are three different types of energy flow that occurs through a window. Non-solar heat gains and heat losses through conduction, convection and radiation. Second, solar heat gains through radiation. And the third type of energy flow, which is airflow through ventilation and infiltration. The types of radiation and solar flow through the window can be minimized by purchasing high quality windows. Airflow, however, is minimized by proper installation by an experienced window installer. Even the best of windows can be rendered useless if improperly installed. That is why we have quality, highly trained and seasoned window installation experts who know how to maximize the value of each window they install while minimizing the airflow allowed through the windows while they are closed. This not only ensures a proper installation but ultimately significant energy savings for your home.


Save money with new windows

Getting new windows installed by Home Evolution can give your home great curb appeal but also save you a significant amount of money in the long run. Having your windows properly installed by an experienced window installation contractor can help keep the cold out in the winter and the heat in the summer. Drafts coming from broken seals and old windows allow the outside air to enter your home and lower the efficiency of your insulation.


Did You Know?

Homeowners lose approximately $35 billion annually through their home’s outdated, inefficient windows! In newer homes, windows make up 10%-25% of the exterior wall space. According to recent studies, windows account for up to 25% of a typical home’s heating load and up to 50% of the cooling load.

BENEFITS OF HAVING NEW WINDOWS INSTALLED BY HOME EVOLUTION

New Windows Help Improve Insulation – Better insulated as well as more airtight, replacement windows will not only improve the insulation on your home as well as the noise pollution from the outside. Low-E coatings can block up to 98% of the ultraviolet radiation emitted from the sun. This radiation causes carpeting, flooring, window treatments and furniture to fade and wear faster.

Improved Indoor Air Quality – High-performance windows tend have an air tightness rating of 0.2cfm/ft or less, which helps to reduce the amount of air drafts entering the home. Air leaks can bring in dust, dirt as well as other air impurities that can affect the air quality on the interior of the home.

Maintenance Free – New vinyl windows do not require painting and have a great moisture resistance. Since the color is added directly into the vinyl substrate, there will be no color deterioration over time.

Better Durability – Better constructed windows with better materials, combined with improved technology can result in stronger, easier to use, and longer lasting windows.

Improved Comfort – New windows reduce conductive heat gains and losses, resulting in warmer interiors during the winter and cooler interiors during the summer. Inside of the home, approximately 40% of our physical comfort is due to the radiant heat exchange between our bodies and the surrounding interior surfaces. New windows reduce this radiant exchange.

Lower Energy Bills – Installing energy efficient windows is one of the quickest ways to lower utility costs. New replacement windows will keep your home protected as well as provide you with a comfortable environment to live in.

Need Your Windows Replaced by a Quality Window Installation Contractor in Albany?

If your windows are starting to show clear signs of failure, it’s time to call Home Evolution to replace them. Some signs of failure include accumulating moisture on the window panes, cracked/broken glass, the exterior is chipped or faded or the window no longer opens and closes properly. Many older windows that were installed may have also been painted with lead paint. If this is the case, it becomes harmful to your health if the paint begins to chip and flake off off the window.

Whether the style of your home is traditional, contemporary, split level, colonial, or cape cod, you will find just the right windows for your architectural style. Choose from single or double hung, casement, bay or bow, sliding windows and patio doors. You can even add dramatic flare to your home with uniquely-shaped custom windows. If the windows are not stocked locally in the Albany area, they can be ordered in. Is it time for you to get new windows? Check out our window replacement blog post here.

Frequently Asked Questions – Windows

The majority of the time spent replacing your windows will be spent on the outside of the house. However, every house and every situation is different. The window installer will assess the situation at the beginning of the project and let the homeowner know. Chances are, we will need to have access to the inside of the house to do minor adjustments, especially if there is trim work involved.
We highly advise all window treatments, blinds and curtains come off before the new windows are installed. There should also be a clear path for the window installer every window that is being replaced so anything that is in the way of that should be moved away from the window. Any types of access needed for the inside of the house should be clearly discussed at the beginning of the project so there is no miscommunication in case the installer needs to get into the house while installing the windows.
A replacement window is different from a new construction window in that it is designed differently. A replacement window is meant to replace all of the existing components of a window and fit the current window opening size. A new construction window is typically installed directly to the exposed frame during the construction of the house. Replacement windows come in many different sizes and can be ordered to fit the particular size of your house window openings.
Home Evolution offers a few different financing options exclusively available to our customers. Talk to your estimator at the time of the estimate to get more information, or call our office directly for more information.
Low-e is a specialty transparent coating applied to glass. It allows light to pass through the window freely, but limits the amount of UV rays that are allowed to pass through the window. Having a low-e coating on your window reduces the u-value of the window and increases its r-value.
The cost of the replacement windows and installation will always vary depending on the style, size and type of windows purchased as well as the difficulty of the installation itself. The best way to get an exact price is to get a personalized quote from Home Evolution.
Home Evolution installs windows for customers year-round. During the wintertime, we try to minimize the heat lost during the installation. Most window installations on a home typically only take 2-3 days to complete.
Most windows have a useful lifespan of about 15-20 years. If your windows are older than that, or many of the components are failing, it is a good idea to have them replaced. Depending on the quality of the windows originally installed, they may start to fail prematurely.
The Energy Star Program was developed by the United States government to certify certain products that meet specific standards for energy efficiency. All products are independently tested to see if they meet these certain specifications. Since the inception of the Energy Star program, the efficiency of windows has almost doubled.
