Nothing brings an existing home up to visual and energy savings standards quite as beautifully as window and door replacements. Many times existing windows and doors become weathered and therefore require ongoing maintenance. Older windows and doors rarely have the insulating and solar reflective qualities of newer versions. Newer products have metal and vinyl cladding for zero maintenance and are often insulated with special films, coatings, and gasses.
Just as we are builders of some of the finest homes in the region, we are also number one when it comes to restoring your existing home. Window and door replacements , which are primary elements of any home improvement, must be done with exquisite care and precision so they operate properly and so that air and moisture infiltration never become an issue. Your home and its contents must be respected and kept clean throughout the entire process.
Our craftsmen are meticuloulsy managed to be sure that your new window and door products are installed according to manufacturers specifications and that they look and perform just as you imagined when you made the decision to invest in the upgrading of your home.

We fasten the window with exterior grade screws instead of nails so that existing sheetrock is not damaged by the shock of hammering:
We then apply more flashing tape over the window's integrated nailing fins to further seal and protect your home:
