Summer Window Replacement in Denver

It’s Getting Hot in Here!

Replacement Window and Doors in Denver 

More than Just an Inclusion to Your Home’s Architectural Design

Tired of the heat already?  Your window plays a huge role in the volume of heat that gains entry into your home, or that is lost, at any point in time. This is why it is important that you are aware of the enormous consequences of having poor quality windows installed in your home. Not only do they serve as a major source of unwanted heat gain (in the summer months) or heat loss (in the winter months), they also require you to spend extra (unbudgeted money, sometimes) to have the air conditioning system running overtime, to keep your home temperature cool.

As a matter of fact, with our Infinity from Marvin Replacement window, there is technology that makes it possible for you to have super energy-efficient windows with low-E coatings, thus helping to reduce the typical solar heat gain, without compromising the design, view or the amount of daylight that comes in.

Amazing Benefits of Having Energy Efficient Windows

Improves Energy and Cost Savings

The beauty of having these energy-efficient windows properly selected and installed is that they can significantly help to improve window performance in your home as well as help minimize unnecessary heating, cooling and lighting costs.

Reasons for Home Energy Loss

More so, these windows have special coatings that can save you the additional cost of having to frequently replace your bleached-out fabrics, floors, art and other materials in your home that are directly exposed to the sun’s harmful rays.

Reduces Your Carbon Footprint

Infinity from Marvin fiberglass windows are eco-friendly and are great at helping you to cut down on greenhouse gas emissions. This is so because the power that you save would have been spent creating greenhouse gases. Helping to eliminate this excess power usage, therefore, is a great way to conserve energy, and ultimately reduce your overall carbon footprint.

Enhances Your Home’s Thermal Equilibrium

Energy efficient windows characteristically have a great thermal resistance by virtue of the Low E coatings on the glass. The more reason why your home will not get heated up by exposure to direct sunlight. You can always be rest assured that your home’s thermal interior can be maintained at comfortable levels away from the scorching Colorado sun. With summer here, it’s time to stay cool.

Low E 366 Glass

In the Southwest, air conditioning units need to run nonstop in order to keep houses cool and comfortable. Under such conditions, the right kind of glass can make a big difference. A case study conducted in Roseville, California, proved that Cardinal’s LoĒ² glass maintains comfortable homes while saving energy.

Two identical houses were compared. One was equipped with clear double pane and another using LoĒ² glass. The results concluded that the house equipped with LoĒ² glass showed a 25% reduction in cooling energy and 10% savings in heating energy. Also, the air conditioning unit used ran 1/3 fewer hours compared to the one used in the test house using regular low-e glass.

 

Improved Lighting and View

New fiberglass windows with low-E coatings, serve as the perfect replacement solution to the traditional tinted glazing or shades on your windows to reduce solar radiation. These energy efficient windows are great at protecting your home from unwanted heat without obstructing your views or the amount of daylight that penetrates your home interiors.

Costs for Energy-Efficient Options

Replacement windows with Low E coatings have now become a standard feature of many new home builds and window replacements. On the average, the cost of having these windows installed cannot be said to be expensive, particularly when you consider the enormous costs that are incurred when you don’t. These are, however, some features that will increase the value of your window.

Summer Window Replacement

Caution: U-Factor Rating for Windows 

You do not want to get caught up in a situation where you have purchased windows according to the U-factor of the glass and have ignored the material of the window frame itself. This is why it is important that you always keep in mind that the U-factor of any energy efficient window could refer to the energy efficiency of the glass alone or the entire window. In many cases, however, the frames are not usually as energy efficient as the glass.  This is why we prefer fiberglass for the window frame.

DIY Network's home improvement series Bath Crashers

Mile High Makeover | Gravina’s Window Center of Littleton on TV Show ‘Bath Crashers’

DENVER, CO, October 03, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ — Gravina’s Window Center of Littleton has worked with the popular home improvement show Bath Crashers on a large bathroom remodel that included Infinity from Marvin Replacement Windows.

The DIY Network was on a mission to crash and trash a Denver, Colorado bathroom. Similar to the popular House Crashers and Yard Crashers series, crasher Matt Muenster ambushes homeowners while they’re home improvement shopping. When he identifies the ultimate bathroom challenge, he follows the lucky homeowner home and totally overhauls a bathroom in need of repair.

Who better than Gravina’s Window Center to handle the window replacement side of the remodel for Bath Crashers. In back to back episodes of the show Gravina’s of Littleton replaced the windows in “Mile High Ceiling” and “Mile High Makeover.”

Quick episode synopsis:

“Mile High Ceiling” – This bathroom is too big, ugly and tacky for these homeowners. To tackle their bathroom nightmare, they call upon Bath Crashers to create a modern masterpiece for the space. They gut it down to the studs and re-build the room with function and style. The walk-in shower is now big enough for two with seven fixtures and music. The freestanding tub is art and sits in front of an ethanol-burning fireplace. The materials are the perfect combination of rustic meets modern with three-dimensional tiled walls and dark hardwood on the floor that are given new light with several floor-to-ceiling windows.

“Mile High Makeover” – Making this space a real retreat starts with trashing the tub that takes up half the room. In its place is a large, unique, steam shower featuring pebbles on the floor, sleek glass tiles on the back wall, and multi-colored blue octagonal tiles on the front wall to produce a rain drop effect. The entire shower space is accessed from glass doors on each side. The shower floor pebbles flow outside the wet area to form a faux moat with LED lighting, then segues into planks of hand-scraped eucalyptus wood flooring for the remainder of the room. The shower is flanked on each side by storage cabinets with a special make-up mirror and hidden bench seat for her. Across from the storage cabinets sit his and hers furniture-style vanities with curved drawers and granite tops with built-in sinks. Clear glass pendants are suspend above each. The ceiling is layered with planks of reclaimed white-washed wood veneer, and a large window is set to provide a beautiful vista of the Rocky Mountains.

Gravina’s Window Center of Littleton has been in business in the Denver Metro area for over 40 years. Gravina’s has Marvin Certified installers as well. As far as the windows supplied for the episode, Gravina’s is the Top Dealer of Infinity Fiberglass Windows by Marvin. Marvin is a family owned corporation and has been around for over 100 years. Marvin and Gravina’s make a powerful combo when it came to energy efficient windows. Using Gravina’s for the Bath Crashers’ episodes in Denver, Colorado was a no brainer.
