Who makes the best fiberglass replacement windows? | Replacement Window Advisor | Scoop.it
Fiberglass windows have several advantages over wood, clad wood and vinyl windows, yet remain a niche product with only around 2.6 percent of the replacement window market, says Remodeling magazine’s Jim Cory. Homeowner unfamiliarity is one reason, price another. In the case of a vintage home, where the aesthetics of wood are important, fiberglass will likely not be a satisfactory …

Is there any advantage to ordering pre-finished wood windows?

Is there any advantage to ordering pre-finished wood windows? | Replacement Window Advisor | Scoop.it
The Scoop's insight:
The most important advantage is in the quality and consistency of the finish. The factory has an edge over those applying finishes in the field because the wood can be painted, stained, or sealed, before the window is even assembled. All of the parts get protected, even in places that become less accessible after the window is built. The finish is even and consistent in color and thickness in a way that’s difficult to match under any changing conditions on site. None of the liquid finishing material ever comes near the glass, so no paint or sealant needs to be removed and the glass is pristine and framed with a clean, precise edge.


Moreover, the homeowner can see and approve the color and finish before the windows are installed. And because the materials used have a track record of performing well in window applications, both contractors and their customers can have peace of mind that the windows will last long and deliver the highest quality performance and appearance. Factory-finished windows are already protected against the weather from the moment they arrive on the jobsite. In the unlikely event there is a problem with the finish, it can be identified before the window is installed, and brought to the attention of the manufacturer, thereby eliminating an expensive callback. .

Pre-finished windows can help with construction schedules as well. The application of several coats of stain and sealant can stretch out for days, or even weeks, if inclement weather arises. Using a pre-finished window system can help contractors meet deadlines and avoid penalties for delays in completion.

Quality, speed, and peace of mind are valuable properties in any construction product, and worth the consideration of any smart contractor.

Colorado Home and Garden Show builds business connections for vendors

Colorado Home and Garden Show builds business connections for vendors | Replacement Window Advisor | Scoop.it
The Colorado Home and Garden Show provides gives more than 600 companies a chance to showcase their products and interact with clientele.
The Scoop's insight:

Vendors sowed seeds of home improvement at the 2016 Colorado Garden & Home Show, which kicked off Saturday and lasts until Feb. 21.

The event is a marketing marvel for more than 600 companies that filled the Colorado Convention Center in Denver to showcase a variety of products ranging from garden tools to window treatments.

"For a lot of the businesses here, it's the only marketing they do all year," said Jim Fricke, executive director of the Colorado Garden Foundation. "They use it to jump-start their companies and meet customers."

Laura Heath, owner of Town & Country Landscaping, said the show put her company on the map. She's been exhibiting her landscapes there since 2005. This year, her company was responsible for the 5,500-square-foot entry garden.

Heath said most of her clients can be traced back to the home and garden show.

"Each garden show provides about 90 percent of our business for the year," Heath said. "If it's not from the garden show, it probably came from a previous show."
