Do Replacement Windows Mean Saying Farewell to Your Home’s Vintage Charm?

Often times, today, it’s tough to combine energy efficiency with style – especially when it comes to replacement windows. The most popular window styles found on today’s homes are:

Single Hung Window Double Hung Window

But did you notice that most of these window styles don’t really have that much style at all? Old, drafty, non-energy efficient windows can cost a lot in terms of comfort and on your home’s heating and cooling bills. This is why many people today look into energy-efficient replacement windows for their home.
