Windows4Selecting new windows and doors isn’t easy. It’s not something you do often, and window technology is changing constantly. Even the language used in the window industry isn’t easily understood by most people. This section of our web site is designed to help you become a more educated consumer so that—when it comes to purchasing windows and doors—you’ll be in a position to make smart decisions. There are many reasons why you might choose to replace your existing windows. Your home feels drafty in cold weather or uncomfortably warm from heat penetrating in warmer weather.

Your heating and cooling bills are high—and keep getting higher! Your home’s existing windows are faded or cracked, making your home look old, dated or in poor condition. Your windows are difficult or impossible to open or close. You’re spending far too much time working on your old windows—scrubbing, painting, puttying and re-caulking them. You’re planning to sell your home and you know your current windows will lower the re-sale value of your home.

In addition to improved resale value and visual improvements, energy efficiency is considered one of the most valuable benefits ofreplacement windows. Gorell windows reduce heat transfer and even protect items within your home from discoloration or fading from the sun. As a result, your investment will literally pay for itself over time with money saved from reduced energy bills.
