Here in Rochester, NY, winters are frigid while summers are hot. You’re not helpless in the face of the weather, though. Having energy-efficient windows in your home can make a marked difference all year round on not only your energy bills but also the comfort of everyone in your family.
To make your energy-efficient windows work for you, you need to have proper window installation. Patriot Construction prides itself on offering customers the best replacement windows and high-quality installation, and we can make your home more attractive and energy efficient.
Reasons to Replace Windows
If your home has windows that are 15 to 30 years old, you may want to consider replacing them. Common age-related reasons to replace your windows are:
- Poor energy efficiency
- Fading and wear
- Outdated appearance
- Bowing, sagging, or bending
- Leaks during or after rain
- Condensation or frost between panes
Issues such as these can reduce the efficiency of your windows as well as the attractiveness. So, don’t just assume that problems such as sagging haven’t caused air infiltration-get your windows checked by a professional.
Advantages of Replacement Windows
Improving the energy efficiency of your home is a good reason to replace your windows. The U.S. Department of Energy indicates that 10 percent to 25 percent of your home’s HVAC bill is due to energy loss through windows. Replacing single-pane windows with energy-efficient ones can dramatically lower your heating and cooling costs.
Replacing windows has other advantages too. New windows are easier to clean, and some models even clean themselves. New windows will also update the look of your home. We offer a variety of styles, such as windows from companies like Alside® Window Systems, Kolbe, and PlyGem. We also put in VWD windows, and our skilled craftsmen can create custom trim and details.

|“Even my neighbors mentioned how fast the work went – I came home one day and had new windows. Renovating the house was a challenge, because we wanted to make it look like it wasn’t modified, but restored to its original Victorian. (Patriot) made it happen the way I wanted.”
-Mark Fitzmorris, Rochester
|“The windows that Patriot installed on our enclosed front porch were a most worthwhile investment for us. They not only improved the appearance of the house, but have provided other benefits as well. They are much easier to open, close and clean than the old windows. And, they don’t rattle like the old ones did. Our house is quieter now when we have heavy winds and when large trucks drive by. Best of all, even though it’s not heated, our porch has become a true three-season room. It’s now warmer and usable earlier in the spring and later in the fall than it was before.”
