Aside from selecting the material, type of glass and placement of your radius windows, you should always keep an eye on quality. Consider the following factors:
Radius and arch windows can be operable or fixed. Both options should provide proper protection from the elements as well as adequate energy efficiency. If the window can be opened, examine how smooth the operation is because radius and arch windows can often be placed in places that are a bit harder to reach.
Check the locking system if present. Depending on the size and placement of radius and arch windows, there’s usually nothing to worry about. However, no two installations are the same. Milgard’s products usually meet or exceed California’s forced entry codes.
♦ Ease of Maintenance
Windows with a wooden frame eventually need to be painted or stained. Being exposed to moisture and/or varying temperatures, they also may warp. On the other hand, vinyl, fiberglass, and aluminum frames require little to no maintenance. Still, it’s important to choose the color carefully as repainting these materials can be somewhat challenging.
♦ Energy Efficiency
Make sure the windows you select are well insulated and built with energy-saving glass, as well as designed to reduce the expense of heating and cooling. Energy efficiency is becoming more and more important, so most windows currently on the market offer these features.
♦ Frame Materials
The material you choose for your window’s frame plays an essential role in deciding which radius window is the ideal option for your San Diego home. When you’re looking for an exterior window that can withstand the elements, the best solution for you is vinyl or fiberglass window frames.
Benefits of Vinyl Radius Windows
♦ energy efficient
♦ weather resistant
Offering fantastic protection, vinyl is a great choice for radius and arch windows. Homeowners in Southern California choose vinyl window frames for their durability and stability. Vinyl is formed together with heat-welded joints which make the windows resistant to varying weather changes. These exterior windows are also energy-efficient, meeting or exceeding ENERGY STAR® requirements. Vinyl is also relatively inexpensive and requires a minimal amount of maintenance. US Windows & Doors sells and installs vinyl radius and arch windows from Milgard’s Tuscany, Trinsic, and Style Line Series. These windows are architecturally elegant and sound, with three internal and eleven external color options to choose from. If you’re looking for top-of-the-line radius and arch windows in San Diego, Milgard’s vinyl windows sold and professionally installed by US Window & Door are the solution for you.
Benefits of Fiberglass Radius Windows
♦ incredibly durable
♦ stunning design
♦ can be built to look like wood
Fiberglass window frames are a relatively new option. People are choosing fiberglass window frames because of their endurance and longevity, knowing they are going to stand the test of time and be reliable for the life of their home. US Window & Door installs fiberglass radius windows from Milgard’s Ultra Series. Both lines of products offer various combinations of styles, colors, grids, and glass types fit for any San Diego design. Each fiberglass radius and the arch window is sold with SunCoat® Low-E insulated glass, which regulates the temperature inside your home while keeping out damaging sun rays. If you’re considering fiberglass radius windows, Milgard’s Ultra Series provide unmatched durability and comfort.
Benefits of Aluminum Radius Windows
♦ great budget option
♦ high durability
♦ ideal for large windows and doors
The aluminum frame provides a modern look while still mirroring the home’s traditional architecture. It’s a solid material for its weight because the process of extruding the aluminum frames enforces the metal. It’s three times stronger than vinyl and more than forty times stronger than wood. US Window & Door proudly sells and installs high-quality aluminum radius and arch windows from Milgard’s Aluminum Series. In addition to the standard model, Milgard offers thermally improved aluminum windows with increased energy efficiency. These windows include a thermal barrier between the exterior and interior glass panels that reduce the heat transfer to a minimum.
Cost of Radius Windows
Any remodeling or redesigning of your home will require a certain financial investment, but installing or replacing radius windows can pay off by improving your home’s design and adding to its value. Whether they’re framed with vinyl or aluminum, radius windows have a similar price which can increase by adding optional features. Other factors that affect the cost are style, size, and installation process. Several factors can mitigate the cost over time. With the use of Milgard’s energy-efficient materials, the cost of adding radius or arch windows to your San Diego home will turn into an unprecedented lifetime investment into your San Diego home. Milgard’s Lifetime Warranty covers all radius and arch windows.
