If you are considering a home makeover project, you may be wondering where you can find beautiful and quality crafted new windows, at the best value. There are several reasons why you want to replace your windows, perhaps they are old and no longer open and close smoothly. If this is the case they could also be drafty or have broken seals allowing winter air into your home, skyrocketing your utility bill. Or maybe you are wanting to freshen up the look of your home and you are just tired of painting those old window frames!

Whatever the reason, Lee Lumber is the place to find the best value for your money, with quality crafted windows at a price you can afford.

Endless New Window Styles to Choose From

With so many options to choose from, it will save you a lot of time and money to speak with a professional regarding the type of window to best suit your needs. Single hung windows have only one sash that slides up or down, and in some cases are more than adequate.

If you would like more flexibility, you may want to choose a double hung window with the ability to slide both the top and bottom sash up or down. This gives you improved airflow, as the warmer air will escape from the top while cooler air is drawn in from the bottom. This type of window also allows for easy cleaning with tilting sashes.

If you are looking for single hung, double hung, or any other style like a horizontal slider, casement, awning or a bay window, the experts at Lee can help you find the best value for your money. Once you determine the type of window you want, you’ll have to consider the energy efficiency rating best suited for your purpose. This will pay off big dividends in your utility bills.

Different Types of Glass and Low E Ratings

As there are many options with the type or style of window, there are also many options with the type of glass your window is constructed with. With various Low E (Low Emissive) ratings available, how do you know which is best for you? Your climate and position towards the sun are factors to consider in choosing the most appropriate Low E Rating. Please see our article on Energy Efficient windows for more information, or simply call the experts at Lee to explain it to you.
