A patio door replacement project may not be as exciting as a kitchen makeover, but this exterior project requires some forethought since it may change the way your home looks, feels and works.
If you’ve shopped around for replacement windows long enough, you’ve probably started hearing about low-emissivity (Low-E) glass. This type of glass is coated with super-thin layers of metallic oxide, which are practically invisible to the naked eye. Today, Stittsville Windows and Doors talks about the benefits of using Low-E glass for your wood or vinyl window replacement project.
The frame-and-panel style is one of the most popular door configurations. This design involves vertical and horizontal frame membranes, called stiles and rails respectively, that hold floating panels within them. The panels are called this because their tenons “float” within the mortises of the adjacent frame members.
A gas fill is an important feature of any energy-efficient window. This component is used in double glazing technology, a window design that uses two panes instead of one. A gas fill also complements the thermal performance of Low-E coatings, ultra-thin metallic layers that reduce heat transfer.
French doors exude a timeless elegance. These components can make your rooms look brighter and enhance the beauty of your home’s exterior and interior.
