4 Things to Look for When Choosing a Window Company

Are you considering restoring your windows? Perhaps you are building a new project or property and want to install high-quality hurricane proof windows. If this is the case, it’s important to choose the right company. You don’t want to end up with an unreliable product, a problem when installing, or inferior customer service. Here are some tips to help you make an informed decision.

1. Reputation

All companies have a reputation to stand by. This can be thanks to the quality of products, years of experience, or even the reviews of customers. Make sure to check their website and do some online searches. Look for testimonials, certifications, and before and after pictures of projects they’ve done. Consider the company’s legacy, years of experience and area of expertise. These actions will go a long way in securing your investment.

2. Materials

Make sure to ask about the different options of windows they provide. Does the company incorporate materials that can withstand multiple storm events? Do they use frames made of aluminum, wood, vinyl, fiberglass, or composite material? You’ll want to choose a reputable company that offers materials that do not cause permanent damage to the frame and that have ease of maintenance and repair.

At EGS International, our products are designed to withstand multiple storm events, ensuring long-term durability and protection. They feature simple operation and greater water resistance due to a specialized sill riser design, as well as superior air infiltration resistance thanks to a precise frame fit. Additionally, our products provide missile impact resistance for enhanced security.

3. Variety of options

Working with a window company that offers different options allows you to customize your windows to match your aesthetic preferences and functional requirements. This flexibility ensures that your hurricane proof windows not only enhance the look of your property but also provide the specific benefits you need, such as improved energy efficiency and UV protection.

With us, you can choose from the storefront and fixed window options. Standard frame options include bronze, white, and clear anodize for you to pick from depending on your needs and style. Glass options include clear, bronze, gray, green, low-energy, and solar ban low-e glass tints. Need more selection? Choose from O, OO, OOO configurations and two-tone finishes.

4. Certifications

Another element in determining which company to choose is to check for certifications. These include design, manufacturing, and/or installation certifications that are granted based on independent lab tests to determine whether a company’s product meets industry standards. At EGS International, our high-performance windows and Atlantic Series Sliding Glass Doors comply with these and other certifications:

  • Miami-Dade Product Control Approval
  • FBC TAS 201 – Impact Test Procedures
  • FBC TAS 202 – Criteria for Testing Impact and Non-Impact Resistant Building Envelope Components Using Static Air Pressure
