Philadelphia, PA- Just like Roy Ayers sang, “Everybody Loves the Sunshine.” However, homeowner’s feeling sunshine-deprived need-not to start popping the Vitamin D just yet. There is glorious sunshine just beyond their walls. The installation of windows and skylights drastically changes the view at home and provides more glorious rays.
“It is important to understand that the true value in windows is a combination of beauty, thermal efficiency and performance,” said Mike Krakovitz Sr., owner of MK Remodeling, Inc.
Window replacement can add a fresh appearance to any home. Mike emphasizes the importance of selecting beauty to complement the home as well as efficiency. “When selecting windows, look for trim lines, they create a graceful impression that emphasizes the view, not the window.” Mike continues, “Make sure that frames and sashes have a carpentered look. Take into consideration locks and other hardware being chosen, make sure it matches the window style and is not a distraction to the view.”
Thermal efficiency windows provide year round comfort and help save money on cooling and heating. Mike shares what to look for when selecting thermal efficient windows. “Honeycomb frames filled with insulating air spaces, significantly reduce condensation. Choose double weather stripping that locks out wind and weather. Also look for double paned integral glazing systems. High performance, Low-E glazing systems help keep summer heat out and winter heat in better than any other system in its class, and significantly reduce damaging UV rays,” says Mike.
Skylights help create the illusion of a bigger room while providing natural light. The National Association of Home Builders report that 55% of new homeowners rate skylights as desirable or essential while 78% of new homebuyers are asking for more light and more open and spacious rooms. “Shrinking lots are forcing larger homes closer together with less privacy. Installing a roof or tubular skylight instead of a traditional kitchen or bathroom window will bring in light while allowing homeowners their privacy,” said Mike. Tubular skylights represent the fastest growing segment of the skylight market, providing natural light in tight spaces like hallways, laundry rooms and bathrooms.
“A good skylight adds light, spaciousness and value to a home, but a badly made or poorly placed skylight can drain a house of warmth, introduce unwanted glare and heat and create a leak risk. Manufactures and designers have worked hard to address the anxiety many builders have over punching windows into a roof,” said Mike.
