Building science has evolved many, many times over since your house was built.  Whether it was built at the turn of the century (we can touch on the problems associated with this era of house in another section) or the late '70's, or the 90's, your home's energy efficiency, air quality, and overall performance can be improved upon - and a major piece to that puzzle is your windows.   Old windows neither keep heat in or keep cold out.  They sometimes leak air, or leak water, and often times, both. 


According to a 2016 National Association of Realtor's Cost vs. Value study, homeowners can expect to see a return of about 73% of their replacement window investment returned when they resell their house.   


Windows are such an important feature to your home's energy efficiency equation, it's important to do your research and get the correct windows based on your home's age and architectural style.  The most common replacement windows in Spokane and replacement windows in Coeur d'Alene are vinyl for a number of reasons; most notably, price point.  Other options for Spokane and CDA replacement windows are wood, or wood clad.  The advantage of wood is that they can be painted in your favorite color, yet, the disadvantage is that now your favorite color is going to have to be maintained for the life of your window. Wood clad windows have an outer "shell" or cladding of aluminum that comes in a variety of colors and offers a very robust warranty.   


Window replacements are an important factor to consider when replacing your siding.   There's no better time to replace your Spokane or replace your Coeur d'Alene windows like when replacing your siding.  Better yet, Aspen Construction & Design, LLC, being both a licensed and bonded siding contractor and window contractor has the skillset to take care of both of these aspects for you to ensure a smooth flow with exacting precision.  

Furthermore, since we only promote and use James Hardie ColorPlus products, we use their recommended caulking supplier, OSI Quad Max.   We are proud to not only be a Preferred installer in the James Hardie Contractor Alliance Program, but we are also an OSI Certified Installer for new and replacement windows.  What does this mean to you?  It means that we can offer you an additional warranty on your new window installation when we use branded OSI components as well as their approved partner components.  Just one more aspect of Aspen Construction & Design that aims to go above and beyond when you replace your siding and windows.
