Beyond the Bare Minimum: Advantages of Award-Winning Windows

It’s good practice to look for the ENERGY STAR® label when shopping for windows. Choosing a window with ENERGY STAR certification helps ensure the product will help minimize your energy consumption and lower your carbon footprint.

Beyond the Bare Minimum: Advantages of Award-Winning Windows

Colonial Remodeling, LLC, a top storm damage repair company in the state, discusses how to get maximum value for your money when it comes to window replacement.

Going Beyond the Minimum

An ENERGY STAR certification means the window manufacturer has met strict energy efficiency guidelines. Some manufacturers have gone even further by ensuring their products surpass the bare minimum.

Government agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency and the Energy Department give out awards to exemplary manufacturers every year. The highest honor awarded is the Sustained Excellence Award, which is given to manufacturers that have demonstrated continued leadership in caring for the environment through energy efficiency achievements.

So if you’re looking for new windows for a home remodeling project, choose windows from award-winning manufacturers to make sure you’ll get more than what you pay for.

Choosing Manufacturers With an Excellent Track Record

Choosing brands that have won an award is good practice, but choosing ones that have a track record of winning that same award multiple times is even better. This year’s ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award was given to the Andersen® Corporation, marking the fifth time the company has won that award and the tenth time it has been recognized by ENERGY STAR.

To make sure you’ll enjoy all the benefits that come with an award-winning window, only hire qualified contractors, like Colonial Remodeling, LLC.
