Vinyl window, and door products are designed with low-maintenance in mind. For instance, vinyl frames will never have to be painted, and fiberglass frames are inherently stable so their factory paint stays on for a lifetime. In addition, many of the hardware systems for windows and doors are made of durable, die-cast zinc or stainless steel material that go through thousands upon thousands of cycle-tests to ensure they will hold up in your home. In fact Dayside manufacturing offers a full lifetime warranty to the original homeowner that covers both labor and materials. Wouldn’t you like that kind of peace-of-mind and low-maintenance from your windows and doors?
New windows and doors offer you improved security. All of the windows and doors that we make available to you have been tested for forced-entry by an independent national certification organization for our industry. In addition, many of our windows and doors now offer multiple-point locking systems that make it nearly impossible to break-through the lock.
Reduce Sound Transmission
Another overlooked benefit of new windows, doors, is their ability to reduce sound transmission. Noise can come in many frequencies and from many sources. And with population density increasing every year, controlling sound transmission is becoming more important. Just as they are the weakest link in the building envelope for energy transmission, windows and doors are also the weakest link in terms of sound control in your building envelope.
It’s Good for the Enviornment
Whether you believe in the greenhouse effect or not, or believe that our environment is heading towards a disastrous outcome, replacing your inefficient windows and doors has a positive effect on our earth. When you can use less energy to heat and cool your home, it means you’re tapping less into our natural resources and reducing the processing of those resources that often cause harm to our environment.
Return on Investment (ROI)
What is the return on my investment for upgrading my windows and doors? This is a question that is frequently asked by our clients. Several sources indicate that the return on investment can range from 80% to 90% and many reports show that window replacement ranks in the top 5 for highest return on investment projects.
More home buyers are paying closer attention to the condition of the exterior envelope of a home. The energy efficiency of your home is becoming just as important as the layout of the kitchen or the comfort of the master bedroom, for example. With energy prices continuing to soar, home buyers are factoring in the quality of the windows, doors, and siding in their buying decisions. As competition rises for home seekers, improving your home’s exterior envelope by replacing its siding or upgrading to an Energy Star window can help separate your home from others on the market.
