Did you move into a home in the 70s to enjoy an orange kitchen and shag carpeting? If you are still in that Rocklin, CA home, chances are you have updated a few things to have a more modern look and style. It’s 2018 now…you don’t want to live in the 70s! You took a step into the future when you put in hardwood floors and painted the kitchen cabinets white or gray. But you can only do so many projects at once and you might still have old windows on your home. Another way you can step into the future is to install replacement windows on your home—whether your house is from the 70s or not! Here are a few futuristic/modern features replacement windows in Rocklin, CA offer.
In the past, windows had single pane glass. They were good for views and fresh air, but that was about it. Nowadays, windows have at least double panes of glass and sometimes even triple panes. They have inert gas filling between the panes to give them even further insulating qualities. And they come in a variety of materials, including the popular vinyl, that allows them to resist thermal transference into a home. Energy efficiency is beyond good and way better than it was in past decades.
Windows do more than insulate the home. They also protect it from things like UV rays. People used to soak up the sun as much as possible, but now we know what damaging UV rays can do. And not just to the skin, but also to furniture, flooring, and other items we have inside. Things fade with too much sunlight and then we have to replace them that much sooner. With low-e glass coatings on replacement windows, UV rays are blocked out, as is the heat that comes along with them. Nothing fades and we can enjoy our possessions for much longer.
In past years, windows came in certain colors and that was that. There were also a few different options to decide upon and then they were installed. But today, the options are almost endless. It can be overwhelming, sure, but it also means that whatever you want in replacement windows, you can get. Whether you want impact resistant glass, tinting, vinyl frames in red, or something else that is rather unique, you can have it. And that’s something that will only grow more in the future.
