Buying Windows? Don’t Forget About These Features

When buying windows, some homeowners never take the time to learn more about their many options. Instead, they assume that anything new has to be better than what they’re currently dealing with.

It doesn’t matter what type of windows you choose, there’s a good chance you’ll have access to some additional features. Here are just a few of the many to consider:

·      Hardware finish: from satin nickel to oil rubbed bronze, you have quite a few options.

·      Impact resistant glass. Are you concerned that your windows could break for any reason, such as because you live in a hurricane zone? This feature can put your mind at ease.

·      Triple insulated glass. It may sound like overkill, but this can greatly reduce the amount of noise you hear inside, while also keeping the cold air where it belongs (on the outside).

·      Non-standard cladding color. It’s not a necessity, but if the standard white doesn’t suit your tastes it’s something to consider.

When buying windows, these additional features may be just what you need to feel better about the end result. Don’t hesitate to learn more about the many features you can add to customize the look (and functionality) of your windows.

Customer Reviews

"Excellent service. Any question I had was addressed in a friendly yet professional manner. I have used Pond before for replacement windows and siding and most recently for new roofing. I highly recommend them for their responsiveness and the high quality of their work."

- Nancy P.

"Pond Roofing was very responsive and knowledgeable about the condition of our roof. They delivered before the expected date and their work was impeccable. I cannot recommend working with Shanti enough."

- Erin M.

"Easy communication with tons of photos and excellent job! Pond Roofing even came back to replace the color of the shingles to our satisfaction. The property was in McLean and they made me look great since my landlord client was very impressed. The swag cookies to our tenants was an added bonus. :-) Thanks so much!"

Laura M.

"Very fast initial response time and great customer service. Repair work was done (by prearrangement) while we had to be out of town and it looks great now that we are back. We have used Pond before and would call them first if we need roofing work in the future. Thanks!"

Scott C.

"Quality and Integrity. Terrific job on a roof repair. Called for a minor fix which was expertly accomplished. Patrick performed a complete inspection, ensuring no other damage or work needed. Perfect!"

Brian N.

"Great communication, very professional repair crew. We have a new construction house that had some issues with vent seals after 10yrs and Pond fixed 8 different areas in one day--very happy with the work."

- Ryan H.

"I recently hired Pond Roofing to check out a leak. They did a great job coming in on time and to troubleshoot the issue. Their pricing was competitive and overall service was excellent. I’m very happy with their work."
