Over time, leaks and cracks can build up in windows, allowing moisture, heat or cool air to enter your home and reduce your comfort levels. Replacing older windows with new energy-efficient vinyl replacement windows that incorporate technologically advanced features offers significant benefits, from lowering the energy bills to increasing the value of your home and the comfort of your family. Our preferred window manufacturers are NT and MI Windows and Doors because they manufacture their windows specifically for our Texas climate.
Vinyl windows keep heat in during winter and out during summer. This reduces heating and air conditioning usage for lower energy bills.
Windows made from vinyl are strong and provide very good energy savings having moderate to high R-values meaning that they are resistant to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the resistance and the higher their energy efficiency which in the long run will save you in heating and cooling costs.
Vinyl windows are nearly 100 percent scratch free. They never have to be painted, scraped, or stained and they’re easily cleaned with soap and water. Because they’re resistant to the elements, they don’t age as fast as other windows.
Vinyl is the least expensive of all window materials, but this doesn’t mean vinyl windows are low quality. Vinyl is durable, and it won’t rust or corrode.
Vinyl windows have many color, size, and style options. They can also be custom made. Colors range from champagne to forest green, and sizes range widely. Vinyl windows are available in styles from awning to picture.
Note: Because vinyl windows can’t be painted, choose a color you will be happy with forever. If you decide on another color down the line, the windows will have to be replaced.
Types of Windows
Windows come in a variety of styles and the price often depends of the shape of the window. Shaped windows (most often triangular or arched shaped) usually cost approximatively $100 more than the standard windows.

Everest Siding and Windows also installs storm and hurricane windows for those homeowners that are located in coastal areas.
Impact Resistance Hurricane Windows and Patio Doors
Hurricane windows are made with impact-resistance glass which is designed to help maintain your home’s structural integrity and add innovative protection for your home and family. When strong, hurricane winds enter a home through broken windows and doors, the increased pressure can lift off the roof and push out the structure. Adding plywood over your windows and doors will not solve the problem and will not ensure the safety of your family in case of a bad storm. Powerful winds can reach under those boards, rip them off, and then break through the windows anyway. Once a window is smashed, your entire house is at risk.
Meet Stringent Building Codes
Exceptionally strong polymer interlayer is sandwiched between two sheets of glass to reinforce your windows during a hurricane.
The interlayer holds the glass together if it’s shattered – helping prevent damage and injury that can be caused by wind, water and debris entering your home.
Can withstand an impact equivalent to that of a 2-by-4 traveling at 50 feet per second.
Added Safety and Security
Hurricane windows’ impact-resistant glass helps prevent forced entry – the interlayer cannot be easily penetrated, even if the glass is shattered.
No storm shutters are needed.
Hurricane windows and doors may add equity to your home and could reduce insurance premiums.
Exceptional Performance Every Day
Hurricane windows and patio doors offer the energy-efficient options that will meet or exceed ENERGY STAR guidelines.
Impact-resistant glass helps block outside noise like traffic and lawn mowers.
Impact-resistant glass blocks out nearly 100% of harmful UV rays.
