Norman, Oklahoma Window Replacement

Last updated on 11/15/2019

Norman window replacement involves quite a few confusing terms and phrases, which means you'll want to do your homework before you decide exactly how you'd like to do this type of home improvement project. Without spending the time required to educate yourself about Oklahoma replacement windows, you'll have a very frustrating time finding exactly the right product. You also could end up spending far more than you should on this type of project, so doing your homework will pay dividends.

Window Terms to Know

When you're considering Norman window replacement, make sure you know how the assigning of the Energy Star label works. Companies that manufacture new glass will attempt to receive an Energy Star rating on their windows, which shows just how energy efficient the glass is. The U.S. government measures the energy efficiency of each replacement window, determining whether the glass meets the requirements for an Energy Star designation.

Low e glass is another term that you'll surely want to know about before you begin shopping for Norman window replacement. Low e, short for low emission glass, provides the ability to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. This type of replacement window includes a coating that allows it to block infrared rays, which are rays that carry heat.

The sun generates infrared rays, and the window replacement glass can keep those rays from entering your home as easily in the summer, keeping the home cooler. In the winter, when you're running your furnace, the opposite effect occurs, as the low e glass helps keep the heat inside your home by blocking infrared rays as they try to escape to the outside. You will find that a window that includes low e glass will cost more as a replacement option with your OK home, but it may be worth the extra cost for the energy savings it will provide.

Types of Glass

To achieve the best possible energy efficiency in a Norman window replacement project, it pays to know exactly what types of glass will be available for you to select. For example, one common type of window that's used quite often in a replacement job is one with two or three panes of glass. Between each of the panes is a insulated spacer, which keeps the edges and corners of the glass from suffering from drafts or from poor seals. Manufacturers may place inert gas between each pane, too, which helps improve the insulation capabilities of the glass.

If you have older glass in your Norman home, you will wonder why you didn't perform a Norman window replacement sooner, especially if you're someone who dislikes having to clean around the window muntins in your frames. With new types of frames, the glass will rotate and tilt toward the interior of your home, which makes the process of cleaning both sides of the glass extremely easy. You won't have to worry about climbing ladders or balancing in an awkward location, trying to reach an especially high area.

For those types of Norman window replacement glass that consist of an upper frame and a lower frame, again, the cleaning is very easy. These types of frames will have buttons hidden along the interior of the frame, which unlocks the frame from the channel, allowing it to be rotated or twisted. Both of the frames easily can be rotated, making them easy to clean.

Installers in OK

As you begin tackling this project, be sure to ask your neighbors in Norman just how they've benefited from their Norman window replacement projects. You'll undoubtedly find that these neighbors have seen an increase in the values of their Oklahoma homes, and they've seen an improvement in just how their homes look and feel. These are great benefits to receive in Norman, as this area of OK is a popular one in which to live. Norman has a population of more than 100,000, and Oklahoma City is just to the north of here.

Norman window replacement can give you these benefits, too. Just be sure that you pick the perfect product to fit your needs. Don't select a type of glass for your home just because a neighbor picked it for her home, because each type of glass has particular benefits. Some types of glass might not meet your home's needs.

Norman is best known as the home to the University of Oklahoma, which draws plenty of people to this area. Some of those people are sure to be looking for homes they can purchase, so a Norman window replacement project will make your property more desirable for these potential buyers. Make sure to select a local installer in Norman who knows exactly how to perform this type of work, and you're sure to have a successful installation!
