- “How Much Do Window Replacements Cost?”
There isn’t an easy answer to this question because no two window replacement jobs are exactly the same. There are a lot of variables that go into pricing.
The most surefire way to find out how much new windows will cost is to get a window replacement inspection and estimate. Nine times out of ten, you will want to reach out to a professional company like Storm Guard Roofing and Construction to have this completed.

- “Is It Possible to Buy New Windows That Are Larger Than My Current Windows?”

- “What Is Low-E?”
Low-E is a metallic coating applied to your window panes to help resist heat transfer. The higher the Low-E rating, the better the window will be at preventing heat from radiating through. The ultimate goal with Low-E windows is to help save you money on your energy bills. However, it’s only one of several options to consider. Curious to learn more?
