What types of replacement windows and doors do you offer?
At Main Street Window Company, we offer a variety of window and door replacement options, styles and materials, including vinyl, composite and wood replacement windows. We also offer replacement entry doors in wood, fiberglass and steel.
What can I expect from an in-home consultation?
We would like our homeowners to set 30 minutes to an hour aside for our consultation. Our consultation is very low pressure and casual in approach. Your Main Street consultant will figure out your needs, from a single window replacement to an entire house. From there, we will inspect each window, measure each window and put your custom estimate together with any options you choose.  We will show you a sample window and discuss the features and benefits of that window, answer any questions you have, and provide an estimate for you to consider.
What makes a window energy-efficient?
This is a combination of a few factors. The U-value, is the rate of heat transfer through material; the lower the number the better. The R-value, is the insulation value; the higher the number the better.

 

 

SHGC stands for solar heat gain coefficient. It is the fraction of incident solar radiation admitted through a window, both directly transmitted and absorbed and subsequently released inward. SHGC is expressed as a number between 0 and 1. The lower a window’s solar heat gain coefficient, the less solar heat it transmits.

Air infiltration or air leakage is a factor in every home.  Windows and doors are major areas where a great product can minimize this inefficiency.
