Little Corner Construction can help you way the long-term benefits of various materials, considering their look, maintenance needs and longevity. An all-wood window requires the most maintenance, but may be worth it if you’re in a historical area or if original character is important. Vinyl windows might advertise “hands-off” maintenance, but may not come in the colors you want, and could degrade faster when exposed to harsh weather. Clad wood or fiberglass could offer a sweet spot in terms of low maintenance, design choice and long-term durability that will protect your investment.

Specially designed coatings are applied to one or more surfaces of insulated glass. These coatings reflect radiant infrared energy, thus tending to keep radiant heat on the same side of the glass from which it originated, while letting visible light pass. This often results in more efficient windows because: radiant heat originating from indoors is reflected back inside, thus keeping heat inside in the winter, and infrared radiation from the sun is reflected away, keeping it cooler inside in the summer.
