Q: Can you ensure me that I am getting the best window available?
A: We only install and sell high-quality and energy-efficient windows. They are Energy-Star rated, come with manufacturers warranties, and we offer repair/replacement services well.
Q: Why should I buy a vinyl window from you?
A: Because we've been in business since 1969, we have been able to stand behind the warranties we offer our cusotmers. And because we are owned and operated in Texas, our work has stood the test of time in Texas weather conditions with local customers.
Q: What is Argon gas and why do I need it?
A: Basically, Argon gas windows feature a sealed unit that is filled with gas between panes of glass to increase energy efficiency. It prevents frost from occuring at the bottom of the window, increases soundproofing, is good in all climates, non-toxic and offers better insulation. When insulating the space between layers of glass, Argon gas is used because it is less conductive and slow-moving, which minimizs the convection currents within the space, thereby conduction through the gas is reduced and the transfer of heat between the inside and outside is reduced.
Q: Will there be damage from the window replacement and installation?
A: Our installers are expert craftsman and see the care of your home as the highest priority. We will see to it that your interior and exterior are free from debris or damage, as well as take the proper steps to keep a clean and professional working area at all times.
Since our installers are paid by the hour, they do take care of your home while working there. Our installers do protect the floors with drop cloths. They carry their own brooms and vacuum cleaners. We take every step necessary to insure proper care of your investment. Remember, Lanham Window Company is responsible for any damage we cause.
Q: How should I prepare my home for the installation?
A: Rest assured, we will take care of everything from moving furniture, adjusting or removing the blinds or drapes inside and plants or lighting outside and will return everything back to its original state when we are completed and you can enjoy your new windows, doors or roof.
Q: Will you guarantee energy savings with the installation of the vinyl windows/doors/siding?
A: There are several factors to consider prior to putting expectations on energy saving amounts. For example, what type of windows do you currently have? What is the current rating on those windows. What does your electricity bills general look like on average and how hot or cold do you normally keep it? How old is your air conditioningin system and how much insulation to you have. These are things we will discuss with you prior to installation.
However, from our experience of installing thousands of energy-saving windows, doors and siding, you can expect to save approximately 20-30% on regular heating and cooling costs in your home. We have had customers who have literally cut their bills in half.
Q: What types of colors are available in both vinyl windows, siding and doors?
A: We have a color selection chart that will help to match your home's interior/exterior style. We will walk you through the selection of the color, grid system and styles available as well as custom needs or requirements.
Q: My roof leaks. Do I need to have it totally replaced or partially?
A: Moisure leaks can result from damage done to a portion of the roof, storm damage or from flashing coming loose. Complete roof failure is normally irreversible and is due to improper installation or poor materials. We will perform a quality check prior to providing an estimate in order to determine the reason for the leak and assess the damage for you.
Q. How long does it take to replace a roof?
A: Depending on the type of roof, inspections or weather conditions, a medium-sized family home can take a few days beginning with the removal of the old roof. We will manage the project throughout the process and ensure that we provide a clean working area and the new installed roof is in place smoothly and efficiently.
