Window Trends

Windows can have an impact on several aspects of a home. This year, in addition to window design, energy efficiency is in the spotlight. That's why many are looking for different ways to improve window insulation by incorporating different materials (vinyl, foam, etc.).

To follow the same line of thinking, the current trend suggests opting for windows whose energy performance is as efficient as the materials that surround them. That's why EnergyStar-certified windows are so popular.
