There’s still time left for those neglected DIY home renovation ideas you’ve been setting aside. If home window upgrades are up next on your list, you might be curious about just what to buy for those new windows planned in your home. How do you really know what to look for? Here at Monumental Windows and Doors, we’ve narrowed down the deciding factors.

Summer Windows

First, let’s talk about some good options when considering the heat. In a state like California where the temperatures tend to go very high, make it a priority to choose windows that will stand up against extreme conditions. Having good, solid insulation in your windows is one way to ensure the heat stays outside—where it belongs. Other tactics such as weatherstrips or insulated shutters are good alternatives too.

Here’s an alternative thought: picture soaring vistas viewable from both your bedroom and in your living room. Monumental Windows and Doors has the perfect product for both. Our very own 5000 Series: Sublinear Sliding Glass Doors are specially made for that level of extravagance. No matter where you place them, they give you great views. Take a look for yourself.

Wood, Vinyl, or Aluminum?

It’s a common question in the construction world: Which functions as the best building material for windows? To answer this, you’ll want to consider factors such as strength and durability for long-term wear and tear. Or, how well a particular material holds up under extreme weather conditions. After years of research, testing, and countless trials, we assure our customers that aluminum is by far the most reliable option.

Change Up Your Window Style

New windows, new style? We think it’s worth a shot. Do those shutters feel dated? Looking for something more modern? Would more natural light in the living room be a bonus for your family? If you’ve been dreaming about ways to create elegant new designs or looks for your home, changing out your windows would be a great way to transform the overarching style of your home—adding a bit of tasteful flair. 

High-Performance Windows

Better air quality, comfort, and protection from ultraviolet rays are just a few of the benefits that come with investing in high-performing windows

While you’re at it, consider the different types of high-performing options to ensure that your investment goes a long way. When looking around, you can also ask yourself these two simple questions:

1. Are my windows good for the environment

2. Are my windows energy efficient

If you can confidently answer “yes” to the above, your investment will be worthwhile.
