Not Your Grandmother’s Windows: Changes in the Past 80 Years

If you are living in a home that hasn’t had the windows replaced in more than 20 years, you are missing out! In the past 80 years of serving Chicagoland customers, we have been able to watch the window industry shift and change to deliver windows that are energy efficient, clear, and easier to clean. The windows that we currently show clients in our showroom are certainly not your Grandmother’s windows; these home enhancements give our clients lower energy bills and a major home style improvement.

Energy first
First and foremost, windows today are focused on energy efficiency. With the correct seal, windows can keep your home free from chilly winter drafts and high heating bills. If your windows are more than ten years old, you are not getting the energy efficiency that you could be receiving with new windows.

Style next
We have watched windows evolve in style over the past 80 years. While windows were once just for function, they are now used for function and for style. The right window can make your home seem more open and airy, while adding a window to a room or hallway can create an entirely new atmosphere. Windows today come in a variety of shapes and sizes, ready to be added to your room, ceiling, or hallway to create the perfect space.

Beyond the style of the windows, today’s windows also protect your home’s style by blocking damaging UV rays. Before, sunlight came through windows, including UV rays that could lead to fading for any piece of furniture or fabric that was in the sun’s rays. Nowadays, you don’t need to worry about your favorite pieces being damaged or fading, as windows offer protection from harmful UV rays.

Upkeep last
Last, but certainly not least, is the ease of maintaining your new windows today. Long gone are the days of window cleaning that took all day, ladders, and complicated maneuvering. Our windows in the showroom now are all easy to clean, meaning you will be able to enjoy clean and clear windows all year long.

Windows today offer benefits ranging from cleaning to energy efficiency, all while still offering the durability that your Grandmother enjoyed on her home 80 years ago. Don’t miss the chance to get your windows installed sooner than later; give us a call to see what your options are.
