Windows 101

Your home's windows can greatly influence its overall appearance, both inside and outside. They also impact your home in terms of functionality and energy-efficiency. Before you begin shopping around for new windows, it's important to have a basic understanding of how windows work.

A significant consideration when updating your home's windows is how the finished product will look. Decide upon a style for your home, and look for windows that will complement your house's current architectural features. The experts of Superior Windowland can help you select windows that match your house's current look and feel.


Installing new windows can also make your house more energy-efficient. The OKNA Insul-Tec is our most popular choice for window replacement because it combines excellent craftsmanship with a traditional look and feel. Superior Windowland offers a variety of options to make your home energy-efficient while enhancing its beauty!


You wouldn't buy a new outfit without trying it on, right? Well, the same goes for your windows. Test out different windows at our showroom to understand their various functions. Here are some sample questions worth pondering:

  • Does it open in or out?
  • Will everyone in your family be able to reach the handle(s)?
  • Is it pet-friendly?
  • Will it provide relief in the summer?
  • Can you seal it up in the winter?


A new window -- as with most updates to your home -- will require regular maintenance throughout its lifespan. Speak with a Superior Windowland technician about how to care for your windows after installation. Certain types of windows will need to be tended to more often.
