Are you a homeowner looking for Cypress New Windows? You may be looking to replace your current windows with a similar style and material. However, are you seeking to replace your current windows with identical upgrade simply because you don’t know much about your other options? We can help you choose the best windows for your home.
You may install different types of windows, depending on the area of the home they are placed. Certain locations make your windows more susceptible to heat damage or fading. As such, careful placement is important. Furthermore, you want to pick the window material that fits your tastes and maintenance style. Lastly, you’ll have to consider additional features, such as the number of panes, weather-proofing, and energy-efficiency.
The Most Important Decision
As you can see, there are a lot of decisions to make regarding your new windows. Fortunately, there’s one thing you can be certain of: you need professional installation. All of your time and research will go to waste if you hire an inexperienced and unprofessional contractor to install your windows. Likewise, it may seem like a frugal move, but installing your windows yourself will cost you much more than you would pay to have them professionally installed.
The thinnest, most basic window that is properly installed can outperform the most high-end model that wasn’t put into place correctly. All of the benefits that manufacturers and window companies boast about literally fall right out the window if you don’t install them correctly. Therefore, while the following information may be useful to you, you can be confident that any decision you make with Master Remodelers is a sure upgrade.

Types of Cypress New Windows
The four main window materials are vinyl, wood, aluminum, and fiberglass, however we also offer casement windows. Each type of window differs in terms of durability, affordability, maintenance, and insulation. When trying to decide, consider the weather, window location, and your budget.
Vinyl is the least expensive option, but also the least durable. These windows typically look like smooth plastic, but faux wood options are available. Though typically white, vinyl windows can be special ordered in nearly any color. Our vinyl windows have improved insulation properties. due to added foam within the frame. If you get vinyl windows elsewhere, you may not have the same level of window insulation. Vinyl windows are usually very low maintenance. At most, you’ll need to wipe them clean with a damp cloth or a duster.
Wood, Aluminum, and Fiberglass
Wood, aluminum, and fiberglass windows are all more expensive, but also more durable. These frames can last decades. Additionally, they are superior noise insulators. Wood and fiberglass can also help you cut energy costs.
These windows also have a few downsides, as well. Aluminum windows transfer more heat into the home than any other option. Wood windows can catch fire. Similarly, each of these types of windows has specific maintenance needs. If wet, Aluminum and wood windows must be dried off as soon as possible to prevent damage. Fiberglass windows tend to fade in sunlight and will need to repaint them.
Once you choose your window material, you still have to choose how many panes you want your windows to have. Single pane windows don’t offer much in term of energy efficiency and insulation. Instead, consider double pane windows that offer the minimum in terms of energy efficiency and insulation. Double pane windows can even cut down on noise pollution much better than single pane windows.
While practically any multi-paned window will provide some form of the following features, you might an even greater benefit than the standard double pane window offers. Consider any issues you’re having with maintaining the safety and security of your current home. Perhaps one of these window options can help.
Energy Saving Windows
Look for windows with a high Energy STAR rating if you want optimal savings on your utility bill. These windows provide superior insulation technology that keeps your central air inside and the tree-fluttering breeze outdoors. Similarly, these thick windows can prevent the outside temperature from penetrating past the window and altering the indoor temperature. If you still need to run your air conditioner, it won’t have to run as long. This can save you hundreds of dollars each year in energy savings.
Technically, these aren’t “extra” features, because they are built into most modern windows. However, some windows are specifically designed for energy efficiency, home defense, or weatherproofing. If you’re specifically interested in any of these features, we can discuss your options in more details.
Living in Texas, your home is often subject to extreme weather. Your windows can either act as a strong barrier or provide an entry point for rain and other uncomfortable elements. You can purchase windows designed to resist breaking under the high water pressure of a heavy thunderstorm. Improperly sealed windows might experience leaks, even during lighter storms. You’ll still want to regularly inspect your storm windows. However, this added protection can give you the peace of mind you need during hurricane season. Additionally, these windows have a much greater chance of holding up, saving you a lot of money of repair in the aftermath of the storm.
