Everything. Built. Better.

Who We are.

The foundation of our entire business philosophy at Armour Contracting is Everything Built Better, and that includes your residential or commercial building’s windows. Your windows are part of your home’s curb appeal. The process of replacing home windows is undoubtedly cumbersome. After all, it’s a decision that needs to be carefully made based on a variety of factors such as type of window, age of home, quality of construction, budget, and so on. Good quality windows should therefore be attractive, match your home’s aesthetic, and withstand the elements for many years. You should contact  Armour Contracting to learn more about the different types of windows, and to get a free estimate for your new windows.

Window Replacement.

Do your home windows need replacing?

You’ll need to have it assessed by a professional to know for sure. If you want to make sure that you are getting a good price on your windows, the best thing to do is get an estimate from a reputable company like Armour Contracting. 

You can also check the condition of your existing windows yourself to determine whether you need to upgrade. Basically, you need to look out for signs of wear and tear and if the window has any problems with its operation. These are a few things you should look for:

Visible Damage or Moisture

Any cracks or visible damage on the frame of your windows are a sign they need replacing. A gap between the sash and the frame, as well as moisture build-up between the panes, don’t necessarily indicate a problem, but are nevertheless signs that your windows might need replacing. After all, too big of a gap can cause uncomfortable drafts, while too much moisture accumulation can lead to a rotting of the surrounding wood. 

Poor Window Operation

If your windows don’t open and close as well as they should (or as well as they used to), it could be because of dirt build-up, which a good cleaning can fix, or a problem with the roller system. Either way, poor window operation can be a sign that your windows need replacing.

Outside Noise

If you live in a busy neighborhood and have noticed that the outside noise has been getting louder and louder, the issue might be your window seals. They may be damaged at this point, causing sound to leak in from the outside, or were poorly made to begin with. It might be best to get professional advice from someone at Armour Contracting.

What are the best home windows?

Once you’ve determined that you need a home window replacement, the next step is picking a window type. 

There are a ton of factors to consider, not least of which is your individual taste. Indeed, window types come in so many different shapes and sizes that it can be hard to know where to start. 

What’s certain is that you’ll have to consider how much it will cost and how long it will last. Windows are, of course, a big investment in your home. They can make or break the look of any house. To be sure, a window that doesn’t match the design of the rest of your house will lower its overall value, so it’s important to get the window style right.

A double-hung window will provide the most security and have the least amount of maintenance. It’s fairly easy to clean and provides ample ventilation. On the other hand, a single-hung window is much cheaper to install, has a much more decorative appearance, but provides less ventilation.

In terms of window materials, Vinyl windows offer some of the most durable options on the market. They are highly affordable, can be made into custom styles, and last for decades. Vinyl windows are a great option for homeowners looking for a durable yet inexpensive option. If vinyl windows don’t fit the design of your home, you can go for composite windows, which are thicker and provide better insulation. They are better than vinyl at lowering your heating bill but are often more expensive and tend to crack more easily. The most durable windows are aluminum frames. They command a higher price tag but are superior in almost every way.

A good home window replacement should be easy to clean, fit your design needs, and last for years. As with all home improvements, it pays to get a professional opinion before you make your final decision. This is especially true if you’re planning to replace your windows with custom-made ones.
Of course, full window replacement is a task best left to a professional like Armour Contracting. If a window is giving you problems, it’s possible that the window’s frame needs replacing. Whatever it is, it’s always best to get professional advice before doing any home window replacement. Depending on the precise issue with your window, you might be able to save a lot of money in the long run by taking care of it now rather than later.
