As all homeowners know, proper upkeep is important in maintaining a home’s property value. That being said, just about all homeowners will also admit that maintenance can be a bit of a drag. Given all the responsibilities you have at work and at home, making sure your home is properly maintained can be a huge challenge.
Take for example the task of keeping your windows in tip-top shape. Considering that the average home has about eight windows, making sure they’re all clean and problem-free won’t be easy. But what if there was a way to get great-looking windows without slaving over their upkeep?
Fortunately, fiberglass windows from San Jose installers offer the perfect solution.

These days, more people are looking to make their lives greener and friendlier to the environment. This notion is bolstered by studies like that of advocacy marketing consultancy Tiller, LLC, which found that in 2013, three in five Americans were looking to live a more environmentally-responsible lifestyle.
When asked why this is so, respondents of the study said they have grown more worried about the effects of global warming, and they believe that the environment has worsened over their lifetime.
Of course, there is no better way to start going green than in the home, where people spend a huge chunk of their time. That being said, a more eco-friendly home doesn’t need to cost families an arm and a leg. Sometimes, even the smallest change can have a huge impact on Mother Earth. Case in point: wood windows.

Window types, performance and functionality, ease of installation and maintenance, and government regulations tend to affect a homeowner’s choice of window installation or replacement. While most regular customers put their time and effort learning the different glass materials and the design style a builder can utilize for a simple installation, a few discerning consumers give attention to the type of window frame they should use for their home project. There are three most popular materials for window frames that are chosen more often than any other: wood/timber, aluminum, and uPVC. Though each material has its own pros and cons.
