For Your Windows


on October 2, 2010

No rumors here. I told you I would report back on research done a few days back.

First, about using home improvement tax credit to purchase energy efficient window treatments. Yes there is something available, and yes you do have to jump through some hoops. Hunter Douglas manufactures a triple cell cellular shade that qualifies for the same tax credit available for window replacement. You cannot use both situations for two different credits. There are also other requirements; your windows have to be newer and energy efficient to begin with. For Your Windows does offer these through our SPECIAL ORDER department.

The fiberglass window issue was very appealing to my husband, who immediately left home to check them out. Many of the major window manufacturers are now using fiberglass. Turns out that they are not that expensive and there are major benefits, including energy efficiency and fewer leakers because of less contracting and expanding. He likes them a lot and highly recommends them to anyone considering window replacement. Remember  the tax credit ends this year, and at this point it is a mystery as to whether their price will increase or decrease with popularity.

Great example of fiberglass windows. Also, perfect example of why you should HIRE A PROFESSIONAL to clean them. Those little panes are a pain to clean.
