Premium Glass Solutions For Your Home
Seattle Window Installation & Repair
Friendly & Experienced Technicians
Windows affect the aesthetics of your home, but more importantly, they can also increase your space’s energy efficiency. When deciding whether to replace multiple windows at once or one at a time, it’s important to consider the upfront costs as well as the savings you can earn over time by spending less on utilities. Our expert team at American Eagle Glass can work with you to determine the most cost-effective and energy-efficient way to update your home’s windows.
How Can I Prepare My Home for Window Replacement?
Our installation crew always takes care to protect your home from any mess the replacement process can make, but there are still some things you can do ahead of time to make the process move even quicker:
- Disconnect any alarms connected to the window or windows being replaced.
- Remove shelves, decorations, wall hangings, etc. around the window/s being replaced.
- Move furniture in the area away from the windows.
- If possible, try to make the space outside the window as clear as possible.
- Try to make sure there’s an easily accessible outlet, or extension cord that can reach the area that will be worked on.
- Set up barriers to keep pets or small children away from the workspace until everything is finished and cleaned up.
While windows are most often installed from the outside of the home, there are some situations in which it may make more sense to do so from the inside. When it comes time to install your new windows, our installation experts will take care to assess your unique situation and recommend the process that works best for your home.
Vinyl vs. Aluminum
When choosing the window style you are interested in installing, you also have a decision to make between materials. Vinyl windows are exceptionally good at insulation, and therefore improve energy efficiency. Aluminum windows are more old-school, and since they conduct heat and cold, they’re not as energy efficient, which can reduce your home’s comfort and increase your utility bills. That’s why American Eagle Glass recommends vinyl windows to all our customers throughout Seattle and surrounding areas.
Window Replacement & Repair
There are a few reasons your windows may need to be replaced or repaired. Whether you’ve noticed a small crack in a window pane, your windows constantly fog up, or a draft has started to get worse, simple repairs may do the trick. Or maybe a baseball found its way through your window, or a storm recently barreled through.
Reasons to consider window replacement include:
Your windows are foggy
Your windows are cracked or broken
Your windows’ hardware is faulty
No matter the reason your windows need to be replaced, American Eagle Glass can help make them good as new.
When to Install New Windows
Each season comes with its advantages and disadvantages when it comes to installing new windows. Our team has experience replacing windows throughout the year – yes, even in the dead of winter! Unsurprisingly, it may be best to replace or install windows during warm months, between late spring and early fall, although many people may be concerned about keeping the heat and humidity out during the installation process. No matter which season it is when you find yourself needing window installation or repair, American Eagle Glass can work quickly to make your home comfortable again.
