STORM WINDOWS- YOUR SECRET WEAPON

Did you know- Storm Windows are among the most cost-effective window improvements you can make?

- Why?

  • A good quality storm will create dead air-space between the storm and prime sash just like insulated glass and in most cases will last longer and perform better than a cheap vinyl replacement window.
  • A good storm window protects the sashes- an insulated glass unit will not last 80 years like your old single-paned windows. In some cases SP recommends to clients storm windows be added even to modern replacement windows.
  • Ironically, there is a lot of interest in old-fashioned wood storms. They offer better thermal protection and are better deadening sound too.
  • In almost all cases your house was designed to have a storm window-the aesthetic balance of the house and curb appeal can be improved with a storm window
