The Case For High Performance Vinyl Energy Star Replacement Windows

 

By Frank Giuseppini

“Wow!” you say, as you come to the realization that you have a lot of choices as to the style, brands and materials that you select for your replacement window project.  As we covered in our article on The Cost of Replacement Windows and Patio Doors  there are distinct differences in the cost of replacement windows and patio doors available to you. But, the cost is just one of the important considerations you should have.  Another is the energy efficiency and comfort performance of the windows and patio doors. We at Jantek  want you to understand why that is, and so here we go!

 The U.S. Environmental Protection Agencys ENERGY STAR® Program promotes the use of high-energy efficient technologies, materials and equipment in homes and commercial buildings. ENERGY STAR labeled homes use at least 30% less energy than homes built to meet the national Model Energy Code while maintaining or improving indoor air quality. If your considering a replacement window and patio door project then its pretty certain that your home or commercial building was built before there even was an “Energy Star Certified Home” or building designation. But… since windows and patio doors are such a large percentage of any home or commercial building’s “envelope,” there can be no doubt that replacing old low performance windows with high performance Vinyl Energy Star® windows will make a significant difference in the energy savings and comfort performance of your home or commercial building.  So, exactly what does this “high performance” mean and what are the benefits?

Well to start with, windows and patio doors typically comprise 10 to 25 percent of the exterior wall area of a home. Research studies report that windows in heating-dominated climates account for up to 25 percent of a typical houses heating load and that in cooling-dominated climates, windows account for up to 50 percent of the cooling load.

At Jantek, we design and manufacture only high performance vinyl Energy Star® windows and patio doors. With over 25 years in the window and patio door industry, we have perfected our craft and our expertise. That is, we are experts on the many technological advances have been made that significantly enhance the thermal performance of windows and patio doors. These technologies include improved framing materials, low-emissivity and solar control coatings, low-conductance gas fills, improved thermal breakand warm edge spacers, and better edge sealing techniques. These technologies can be used independently or in combination, but must be selected based on climate to optimize performance. Read on for a thorough understanding of this important criteria in your decision process. 

Windows can improve the thermal performance of homes by minimizing heat loss in heating-dominated climates and by minimizing solar heat gain icooling-dominated climatesThus windows with lower U-factors or higher R-values perform better in heating-dominated climates and windows with lower solar heat gain coefficients (SHGC) perform better in cooling-dominated climates. SHGC is a measure of the amount of solar energy that the glass in your window or patio door allows to pass. For a better understanding of SHGC, U-Factor and other important window performance criteria, take a look at our article on How To Use NFRC Factors To Compare Energy and Comfort Performance Of Window And Patio Door Brands   

The materials and design of the frame also influence thermal performance. Low conductance materials, the least conducting being vinyl, followed by others such as wood and fiberglass, perform better than high conductance materials such as aluminum or steel. will conduct or transfer heat at a slower rate. That means that the summer’s heat will transfer more slowly from outside to inside, and, the heat generated from your heating system will transfer more slowly from inside to out.  If you must use metal windows, then look for thermal breaks” in the window design in heating-dominated climates to avoid condensation and at least some reduction to thermal transfer

Air tightness is another important consideration. Windows are now being tested and rated for air tightness. A rating of 0.2 cfm/ft (cubic feet per minute of air leakage per linear foot of window edge) or lower is considered good

An effective building envelope is a key element for an energy-efficient home and your comfort. Replacing your old drafty, energy leaking windows with ENERGY STAR high performance windows can improve the effectiveness of the building envelope and improve comfort.

High-performance vinyl replacement windows can provide many benefits including:

Improved comfort. High-performance vinyl replacement windows reduce conductive heat losses and gains resulting in warmer interior surfaces during the winter andcooler interior surfaces during the summer. In homes, approximately 40 percent of our physical comfort is due to the radiant heat exchange between our bodies and the surrounding interior surfaces. Thus, high-performance windows improve comfort by reducing this radiant heat exchange. In addition, improved frames reduce drafts and provide more consistent temperatures throughout the house.

Quieter home. High-performance vinyl replacement  windows often utilize multiple glazing and insulated frames. These features reduce unwanted noise from the outside.

Increased quality. High-performance vinyl replacement windows are often constructed with better quality materials that can result in stronger, easier to operate, and longer lasting windows. As a result of these improvements, manufacturers frequently offer extended warranties on these products.

Improved indoor air quality. High-performance vinyl replacement windows and patio doors often have air tightness ratings o0.2 cfm/ft or less which reduce the amount of unconditioned air leakage into a house. This air leakage can bring in dirt, dust, and other impurities that can negatively affect indoor air quality.

Lower utility bills. High-performance vinyl replacement windows and patio doors are better insulated and more air-tight. These features reduce energy consumption for heating and cooling

which results in lower utility bills, making homes less expensive to operate.

Reduced obsolescence. Based on recent trends for improved efficiency, high-performance vinyl windows and patio doors are expected to become standard practice for thbuilding industry, therefore homes with high-performance windows are, therefore, expected to be less vulnerable to obsolescence.

Fewer condensation problems. High-performance windows stay warmer in the winter resulting in drier windows with fewer condensation-related problems. Condensation can stain fabrics, lead to mold and mildew build-up, and in cold climates cause damage due to the freeze/thaw cycle.

Reduced wear on home furnishings. Low-E coatings can block up to 98 percent of the ultraviolet radiation emitted by the sun. This radiation causescurtains, window treatments, carpeting, and furniture to fade and wear faster.

Improved resale position. High-performance windows can provide the many impressive benefits listed above resulting in a more comfortable, quieter,and higher quality home with lower utility bills and fewer condensation and fading problems. These benefits can translate into higher resale value.

So hopefully I have given you a better understanding of the quality dimension of your replacement window and patio door project. This is just one piece of the total picture. We address more of the pieces in our other blog articles so check them out.  In the meantime if you would like to discuss more of your questions with our replacement window experts, or maybe you are ready for a quick no hassle Free TeleEstimate/Virtual Estimate for Vinyl replacement windows and patio doors, you can also give us a call at (609) 564-1030 x13 and we will be happy to help.

Answering Your Vinyl Replacement Window and Patio Door Installation Project Questions

 

The Ultimate Replacement Window Contractor Vetting Checklist


By Frank Giuseppini

If you are seriously considering a replacement window project, you’ve probably discovered that there are a lot of decisions to make!

At the top of this list stands one preeminent question:

How do I select a reputable replacement window contractor?

This question is so important because the expertise and integrity of your replacement window and patio door contractor will play a huge role in determining the final outcome of your project.

To assist you in this process, we at Jantek Windows have put together a checklist to help you vet replacement window contractors. This checklist is based on our experience of not only working with over a thousand replacement window customers throughout Southern New Jersey and the greater Philadelphia area, but also from helping hundreds of folks who found us through the internet find reputable replacement window contractors in their area (see more about this below).

So, regardless of where you live or whether you are looking for wood clad, metal, composite or vinyl replacement windows, this checklist will help you identify various criteria to look for when selecting your replacement window contractor.

Okay, lets get right to it!

The Ultimate Replacement Window Contractor Vetting Checklist

Contractor Name: ___________________________________________________________

1. Business Information and Experience

__ The company is licensed and insured
Note: ask if the name on the license is the same as the company name. If not, find out why.

__ Find out how many years the company has been in business
Years in business: __________
Note: 63% of contractors fail within the first three years after start-up

2. Customer Reviews/References

Ask the following questions of the replacement window contractor:

1. How many replacement window projects have you installed since in business? __________
2. How many were installed last year? _________
3. Of those installations, how many reviews/references can you provide in the form of either an social media post (make sure any post is from a valid person with an actual account on the social media platform) from an actual customer, or on a reference list for you to contact? ________

Note: if the replacement window contractor provides less than half of their customers as references, we consider this to be a red flag. Our experience has been that the vast majority of people when asked are willing to go on a reference list. In our opinion, providing less than half of the customers as references equates to less than a 50% chance of being happy in the end.

__ Satisfy yourself that there are at least 20 good replacement window project customers for this contractor.

When reviewing social media posts, or contacting references, pay attention to key satisfaction factors like :
1. The customer would use the replacement window contractor again.
2. The customer enjoyed project experience
3. The customer was happy with the product style and options
4. The customer was happy with the price
5. If issues or problems arose, the customer was happy in the end

3. Reviews and Ratings

__ Collectively, the replacement window contractor has at least a 5:1 good review to bad review ratio
__ They responded reasonably to negative reviews when possible

4. Products Used By the Replacment Window Contractor

__ Who manufacturer’s the products that the replacement window contractor uses?
__ The products the replacement window contractor uses have good reviews in the marketplace
__ The customer references / reviews gave the products used by the builder positive ratings
__ The products are backed by competitive warranties
__ The contractor will handle any product warranty issues (or do you have to deal with the manufacturer?)

5. Installation Workmanship Warranty

Note: an installation workmanship warranty would cover issues that could arise such as window operation, leaks, structural problems, etc. The minimum workmanship warranty by law in most states is one year.
• What is the duration of the replacement window contractor’s workmanship warranty? _______________________________________________________________________
• What specifically does the replacement window contractor’s workmanship warranty cover? _______________________________________________________________________
• What happens in the event that a repair is needed? (Is there a fee, who pays for materials, etc)? _________________________________________________________________________

6. Installation Practices
• Does the replacement window contractor have any installation or construction practices that distinguish them from the competition? ________________________________________________________________________
• Are these practices relevant? ________________________________________________________________________

• Does the replacement window contractor utilize sub-contractors or their own employees to install your replacement windows or patio doors? (subcontractors will require their own insurance and EPA Certifications.)
_________________________________________________

7. Design and Project Planning
__ The replacement window contractor will present a plan to you before the project begins showing the following:

  •  Copy of their contractor’s license
  • Insurance certificate (for any subcontractors as well)
  • EPA Lead certification (for pre-1978 residences)
  • EPA Renovate Right Pamphlet (for pre -1978 residences)
  • Confirm:
    • Custom sizes
    • List exact style and location of each window or patio door
    • List options for each window or patio door
    • List each type of installation for each opening
  • Copy of the warranty

8. Pricing and Contract
__ After assessing the scope of work (product and installation requirements) the replacement window contractor will provide you with a formal written estimate or quotation.
__ Upon your decision to move forward with your project the replacement window contractor will provide you with a separate, detailed contract, that will incorporate the scope of work and the price for all of the work from the estimate, with additional details of specific exclusions, legal jurisdiction, 3 day right of recission (most states), applicable legal jurisdiction, certification of insurance and warranty, etc.
__ When you decide to proceed, the contractor will confirm all of the details on your estimate and provide you with a legal contract that covers all of the requirements for performance on their part as well as the price that you will pay for all of the work.
__ If changes are made to the scope of work prior to or during the start of work these will be approved by you and documented in a formal “Change Order” and any change in price, up or down, based on the scope of work changes will be reflected. Any Change Order will become part of your contract.

Note: Never sign the estimate! Try to avoid going into an agreement with a hand written summary “estimate” that lacks all of the detail of a legal contract. This is a tactic some contractors use to make the initial price of the project seem lower than what it will be and also to avoid being held to task in the event something should go wrong.

The Cost of Replacement Windows and Patio Doors


By Frank Giuseppini

I recently came to the conclusion that even in this “age of Google,” it is still difficult for consumers to do online up front research on what it will cost to replace the windows and patio doors in their home or business.  Replacement windows and patio door companies’ websites tout their discounts and savings, but rarely allow you to understand what your final cost may be.  You have to have a virtual (Skype, Zoom, etc.) or in-home appointment with a salesman to get an idea of what your actual cost may be. I want to change that!

Sure, Jantek exclusively designs, manufactures and installs vinyl replacement windows and patio doors. We do not manufacture, or offer for sale, metal, wood clad, or composite windows or patio doors. However, in the over 25 years in the replacement window and patio door industry we have an insider’s view of all types of products offered by fellow window manufacturers and dealers around the country, including the price. Add to that the experience of our employees who have come from all corners of the industry including wood, metal and composite window and patio door manufacturers and retailers. I knew we, with all our expertise, Jantek Windows could and should address the very important “How much do replacement windows and patio door’s cost?”.

At Jantek we want to serve as the fair, and direct source of answers to all of your replacement window and patio door questions. Let’s face it, vinyl replacement windows are the absolute most popular replacement windows and patio doors, by far. But vinyl is not for everyone. Like any other product you purchase, there are pros and cons to each when considering a consumer’s ultimate objective. In this article I want to give you a guide to the cost comparison of all types of replacement windows and patio doors.

As you consider purchasing a replacement windows, this cost and pricing guide will help you develop an initial budget and plan for the ownership costs associated with each type window and patio door. Final prices will vary by location and supplier. You may want to read our article on The Ultimate Replacement Window Contractor Vetting Checklist

A Few Things to Consider

There are three things to consider when researching the cost of any type replacement windows and patio Doors:

• The Scope of work of your project
• The initial purchase price
• The long term cost of ownership associated with the replacement windows and patio doors

Vinyl, Wood Clad, Metal, Or Composite Cost Comparision

So now let’s take a look at the intial cost of wood clad, vinyl, metal and composite replacement windows and patio doors and get an idea of how much to budget for each type. Keep in mind that these prices will vary greatly based on the scope of your replacement project and from region to region. Then we will look at the long term cost associated with owning each type of replacement window and patio door.

Vinyl Replacement Windows: Initial Cost

You need to know that you can purchase “stock size” replacement windows and patio doors right off the shelf from a big box store or lumber yard, or, you purchase custom manufactured replacement vinyl windows and patio doors from a manufacturer’s authorized dealer. The difference is that the stock size products will be chosen based on the “best fit” to your rough opening and that opening may need to be modified to properly install the replacement window or patio door. The custom sized window or patio door will be custom manufactured to within 1/8” of the size provided to the manufacturer. This customization will size the windows to optimally fit your specific opening and will require less labor in the installation of the replacement window or patio door.

No matter whether you purchase stock or custom vinyl replacement windows and patio doors, there are three distinct types of Vinyl Replacement Window and Patio Door Packages (scope of work):

• Self -installation
• Partial (assisted) Installation
• Turn Key installation

Let’s take a look at each to learn more.

Vinyl Replacement Windows and Patio Doors Self-Installation Package

A self-installation package scope of work would include:
• Establishing product specifications (size, style, options etc.) and ordering the windows and patio doors from the manufacturer
• Receiving and inspecting the accuracy and quality of the order
• Delivering the windows and patio doors to the jobsite (could be optional)

The customer takes it from there.

The obvious advantage of installing your own replacement windows is what you’d save from reducing the replacement window and patio door installation cost. On average most people will save between $150 and $375 per window and $700 to $1,300 per patio door depending on the scope of the project and who does the majority of the work and provides the installation materials.

The price of the replacement windows and patio doors for the project is determined by four things: The style/design, the features/options, the size of each window and patio door, and the cost to deliver the replacement windows and patio doors to your home.

If you are considering a self-installation, ask if the quoted price for the windows and patio doors includes delivery. If pickup is not an option, then get a delivery quote in writing.

Replacement vinyl windows are basically classified into the following styles/models and in most cases, you can expect prices for the products, without delivery and installation, will vary based on standard features, size and options you may choose to add.

• Hung window (double hung / single hung) $250 – $600
• Slider window (double slider / Triple slider) $300 – $875
• Picture/ Fixed window $300 – $725
• Casement or Awning window (crank out) $290 – $700
• Architectural Shape (half round, trapezoid, octagon, eyebrow, etc.) $400 – $1,500
• Basement hopper window $175 – $300
• Bay window, Bow window (Buck frame cost only. Add windows as above) $900 – $1,600
• Garden window $1,300 – $2,300
• Patio Door $875 – $2,400

Delivery Fees could be anywhere from $50 to $200 within a 50 to 75 mile radius of the Point of Sale.

Resources are available to teach homeowners how to install their own replacement vinyl windows, but the vast majority of replacement window purchasers prefer to leave the installation of the windows and patio doors to manufacturers authorized dealers.

Assisted Installation Vinyl Replacement Windows and Patio Doors Package

An assisted installation differs from a self-installation in that it includes these additional scope of work items.

• Delivery of the and patio doors
• EPA lead testing if building is pre 1978 construction (required by law)
• If lead paint is present, follow EPA safe work practices
• Labor to set the replacement windows or patio doors into the rough opening
• Labor to caulk seal the interior and exterior of the window or patio door

These are the most critical (and unfamiliar) phases of the installation.
The customer provides all the other labor, materials and equipment.
This is a great option for those who can remove their old windows themselves and handle any remediation of the rough opening such as wood rot and finish the interior and exterior capping and trim, but rather not deal with the headache of leveling, squaring, securing and sealing the replacements into the rough opening.

You can expect prices as follows for the products with assisted installation, of course prices will vary based on standard features, size and options you may choose to add and location.

• Hung window (double hung / single hung) $375 – $875
• Slider window (double slider / Triple slider) $500 – $1,150
• Picture/ Fixed window $375 – $800
• Casement or Awning window (crank out) $365 – $775
• Architectural Shape (half round, trapezoid, octagon, eyebrow, etc.) $475 – $1575
• Basement hopper window $175 – $300
• Bay window, Bow window (Buck frame cost only. Add windows as above) $1,275 – $2,275
• Garden window $1,850 – $2,850
• Patio Door $1,100 – $3,000

Turn-key Vinyl Replacement Windows and Patio Doors Package

The overwhelming advantage of a turn-key project is convenience, quality and time savings.

A vinyl replacement window and patio door company handles all of the above, plus these additional details:

• Provide permits if required
• Hiring the installation subcontractors (or, at Jantek we use our own employee labor)
• Scheduling and overseeing the work
• Provide all Installation materials
• Remediate any deterioration of the rough opening
• Remove and replace shutters (if necessary)
• Finish to the siding, seal and cap the exterior
• Finish, seal and trim the interior
• Disposal of old windows and debris

The scope of work for a turnkey package can vary greatly from company to company, so ask specifically what your estimate includes. It is surprising how often a company’s turnkey package doesn’t include (or charges extra for) lead testing, finishing and capping the exterior, or disposal of the old windows and debris etc.

It’s also important to consider other details like warranties, or will installation be done by the company’s employees or will they use subcontractors? Also, you should know the quality and energy performance of the products being installed, and the manufacturer of those products.

The customer does not need to oversee and manage any aspect of a turnkey package project. The customer does not need to supply any of the materials or equipment or do any of the work themselves.

Many customers find it worth the investment to let someone else handle everything- not to mention the added peace of mind knowing that there is only one company responsible for the project.

On average, turn key vinyl replacement windows and patio door costs are as follows:

• Hung window (double hung / single hung) $475 – $975
• Slider window (double slider / Triple slider) $600 – $1,250
• Picture/ Fixed window $475 – $900
• Casement or Awning window (crank out) $465 – $875
• Architectural Shape (half round, trapezoid, octagon, eyebrow, etc.) $575 – $1675
• Basement hopper window $275 – $400
• Bay window, Bow window (Buck frame cost only. Add windows as above) $1,750 – $3,475
• Garden window $1,750 – $2,950
• Patio Door $1,250 – $3,450

Projects that require extensive special designing, opening remediation or special installation methods or equipment can cost much more.

Wood Clad Replacement Windows: Initial Cost

Wood clad replacement windows and patio doors are manufactured with wood master and sash frame with the exterior surfaces clad with either vinyl or aluminum. Having lost market share in the last 20 years, wood clad windows still remain extremely popular in certain regions of the country and for applications that require painting or staining of the interior wood surfaces.

Wood Clad windows are typically available in stock sizes, although some manufacturers may provide custom sizes by special order. Though the product is the most expensive of all the window types, you can save money by purchasing the windows locally and doing a self -installation as we discussed earlier.

Often, people are surprised to learn that the price of vinyl replacement windows and patio doors and wood replacement windows and doors are significantly different.

When it comes to the initial price of a wood replacement window or patio door and a vinyl replacement window or patio door, the primary difference is the manufacturer’s cost of material to make the mainframes and sash frames. Wood is a more costly commodity than vinyl. On the installation side, because the manufacturing processes of wood windows and patio doors, do not lend themselves easily to customization (some wood window and patio door manufacturers will do this by special order) of sizes to within the optimum 1/8” of the homeowner’s specific opening the wood clad replacement windows are typically manufactured to stock sizes. Therefore, the installer will choose the “best fit” for each opening. This requires more labor and materials on the installation side of the scope of work to insure an overall good fit installation.

On average, wood clad replacement windows and patio door turn key costs (with installation and the required painting or staining the interior wood frames) are as follows:

• Hung window (double hung / single hung) $807 – $2,150
• Slider window (double slider / Triple slider) $1,225 – $2,500
• Picture/ Fixed window $1,000 – $2,000
• Casement or Awning window (crank out) $1,000 – $2,150
• Architectural Shape (half round, trapezoid, octagon, eyebrow, etc.) $1,275 – $3,600
• Basement hopper window $545- $950
• Bay window, Bow window $2,275 – $10,000
• Garden window $2,275 – $7,700
• Patio Door $2,625- $7,800

Metal Replacement Windows: Initial Cost

Just to be clear, the majority of metal replacement windows or patio doors are made from aluminum or steel. Having lost significant share of the residential market over the last couple of decades, they are typically used for heavy commercial or large architectural glass panel applications where heavy commercial structural ratings typically are more important than energy efficiency.

When it comes to the initial price of a metal window or patio door and a vinyl window or patio door, the primary difference is the manufacturer’s cost of material to make the mainframes and sash frames. Metal is a more costly commodity than vinyl. Also, metal is a high conductor of heat and cold, so additional materials and features need to be designed into the metal window or patio door product designs to meet practical energy standards. On the installation side, as is the case with wood windows and patio doors, the manufacturing processes do not lend themselves easily to customization of sizes, so metal replacement windows are typically manufactured to stock sizes. Again, with stock sizes, the installer will choose the “best fit” for each opening which requires more labor and materials on the installation side of the scope of work to insure an overall good fit installation.

On average, turn key metal replacement windows and patio door costs are as follows:

• Hung window (double hung / single hung) $525 – $1,175
• Slider window (double slider / Triple slider) $675 – $1,400
• Picture/ Fixed window $550 – $1,100
• Casement or Awning window (crank out) $550 – $1,175
• Architectural Shape (half round, trapezoid, octagon, eyebrow, etc.) $700 – $1,975
• Basement hopper window $300 – $525
• Bay window, Bow window $1,250 – $5,500
• Garden window $1,250 – $4,200
• Patio Door $1,450 – $4,300

Composite Replacement Windows and Patio Doors: Initial Cost

Composite replacement windows and patio doors are relatively new to the industry. The main frames and sash frames of composite replacement windows and patio doors are made from combinations of extruded plastic, wood particles and sometimes fiberglass or other materials.

When it comes to the initial price of composite window or patio door and a vinyl window or patio door, again the primary difference is the manufacturer’s cost of material to make the mainframes and sash frames. The extrusion process and raw materials for composite frames are more costly than vinyl for the manufacturer. Also, additional steps must be taken in the manufacturing process of composite replacement windows and patio doors to mechanically fasten or bond the frame components. On the installation side, as is the case with wood windows and patio doors because they cannot be fusion welded. Because of these facts, manufacturing processes do not lend themselves easily to customization of sizes, so composite replacement windows and patio doors are typically manufactured to stock sizes. As is the case with stock sizes, the installer will choose the “best fit” for each opening which requires more labor and materials on the installation side of the scope of work to insure an overall good fit installation.

On average, turn key composite replacement window and patio door costs are as follows:

• Hung window (double hung / single hung) $525 – $1,175
• Slider window (double slider / Triple slider) $675 – $1,400
• Picture/ Fixed window $550 – $1,100
• Casement or Awning window (crank out) $550 – $1,175
• Architectural Shape (half round, trapezoid, octagon, eyebrow, etc.) $700 – $1,975
• Basement hopper window $300 – $525
• Bay window, Bow window $1,250 – $5,500
• Garden window $1,250 – $4,200
• Patio Door $1,450 – $4,300

Cost Of Ownership Associated with Each Type Replacement Window or Patio Door.

Now let’s take a look at how much it costs to own each type of replacement window or patio door over time. The following chart compares the typical cost for vinyl, wood clad, metal and composite windows over a ten year period.

 

So now you have somewhat of a guide to the cost dimension of your replacement window and patio door project. This is just one piece of the total picture. We will address more of the pieces in our upcoming articles on energy performance, warranty, lead times, what to expect during installation, replacement window design etc. In the meantime if you would like to discuss more of your questions with our replacement window experts, or would like to have a quick no hassle Free TeleEstimate/Virtual Estimate on Vinyl replacement windows and patio doors, give us a call at (609) 564-1030 and we will be happy to help.
