If You Have Questions About Windows In The St. Charles And St. Louis Areas, We Have Answers.

Getting The Right Window In St. Charles And St. Louis Doesn't Have To Be Complicated

Question List

Why Don't You Have Windows For $200 Like I See Other St. Charles Window Companies Advertise?

IThose $200 windows you see advertised are what’s known as “builder grade” windows. They are made of lower-quality materials and won’t last in the Midwest weather. You also have to consider that the $200 price tag more than likely does not include installation.

Unfortunately, these cheap windows are also used as a “bait and switch” tactic to get you to call the companies that sell them. Once the company comes to your home, expect a sales presentation that’s over 2 hours and tries to get you to buy higher-priced windows.

What's The Difference Between Your Windows And Windows I Can Buy At Big-Box Rretailers In St. Charles?

Those windows you see at the big-box retailers (and even sold by some St. Charles window companies) are mass-produced in a factory to overly generic specifications. They are designed to be a “one size fits all” solution. But as you know, no two homes are exactly alike, so there is no one single window that’s right for every home.

Unfortunately, many window installation companies in St. Louis and St. Charles buy these "off the shelf" windows and then try to force them to fit. This requires a whole bunch of shims and whole bunch of caulk, and it does not look pretty.

That’s why you need windows that are custom measured and built for your home’s specifications. At EZ Home Solutions, our custom windows are precision-engineered to 1/8” increment and manufactured to fit your specific window opening. This will provide you with the best looking, best performing window.

What Does "Fusion Welded" Mean Pertaining To Windows?

“Fusion welded” refers to the corners of a window being welded together for weathertight performance. The corners are heat-welded in the same way metal pieces are welded together. This is going to provide you with the most efficient, highest performing windows.

Is there Really A Difference In The Quality Of Vinyl Used In Window Frames?

Absolutely. Think of a name-brand water bottle like Dasani® or Aquafina®. Then consider a generic brand that is exceptionally cheap when compared to the name-brand water. The generic brand feels flimsy and has a completely different texture that the name-brand bottle. It’s the same as the plastic used in vinyl windows. Some are higher quality than others.

To help you determine the difference in quality, remember that lower-quality vinyl has a dull blue or gray cast.When shopping for vinyl windows in the St. Charles area, look for vinyl that is a bright white.

What Should I Look For In Terms Of Window Performance In St. ChHarles And St. Louis?

Look at the window’s Energy Star label, especially the U-Factor. This indicates how well a window insulates against the transfer of thermal energy. The lower the U-Factor number, the better the window performs. For reference, Missouri homeowners in the uppermost northern part of the state should have windows with a U-Factor of 0.27 or less, while homeowners in the rest of the state should have windows with a U-Factor of 0.30 or less.

In addition, you also need to check the quality of the glass being used. Remember, a window is about 80% glass, so the quality of the glass used is going to have a profound effect on a windows performance. Our windows have glass that is 3mm thick instead of 2mm, which is the industry standard. We also have exclusive insulation packages like ClimaTech®. ClimaTech combines Low-E glass with argon (or krypton) gas and the Intercept® Warm-Edge Spacer System to achieve optimal energy efficiency in Missouri.
