When it comes to choosing replacement windows for your home, there are a variety of options to consider. Vinyl provides budget-friendly choices, while wood is a traditional window material that still attracts homeowners. A newcomer to the window market is fiberglass windows.
Vinyl window frames are the easiest to maintain of the three materials we offer. High resistance to heat loss or gain, resists condensation, structurally rigid and stable. Many designs with excellent wind load ratings.
Vinyl windows never need to be painted.
Fiberglass is durable, strong and stable. Fiberglass provides superior strength, heat, UV and corrosion resistance to deliver a tough and resilient product.
Wood windows have a traditional look and feel with attention to detail. Wood is nature's exceptional natural insulator. Environmentally friendly wood is a very energy efficient window material and is a renewable resource. From custom shapes to a wide variety of exterior finishes, your are sure to see the difference in handcrafted wood windows.
High performance windows with new glazing technologies not only reduce energy costs but will make homes more comfortable as well. You can now sit in your kitchen nook in the winter without feeling those cold drafts.
Home furnishings such as carpet, fabrics, artwork, paints, and wood floors may fade upon exposure to sunlight. The Cardinal's Low E 366 glass will block 95% of the Sun's UV Rays. The energy efficient windows will also protect your wood shutters as well.

High performance windows will help lower the stress on your homes HVAC equipment. The energy efficient windows will also help reduce the size of your new HVAC system in the case you have to replace it in the future. This will also help with future savings.
Energy efficient windows can substantially reduce the costs associated with heating and cooling. It is now possible to significantly reduce solar heat gain and improve comfort while providing clear views and daylight.
A consumer should select a window manufacturer who manufactures and sells energy efficient products (i.e. meets the recommended U-factor and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient in our Texas climate), has a reputation for service and stability, and provides a warranty on the unit. We recommend that you buy products from manufacturers who have made a commitment to participating in the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) certification and labeling process and in the ENERGY STAR Windows program.
Sometimes a homeowner feels more comfortable with a particular contractor rather than a particular product. Installation is a very important issue with windows. Ask your contractor to describe the installation process. Make sure your contractor knows about ENERGY STAR products and NFRC labeling.
