Storm Windows Protect the Beauty of Your Home
Storm windows can provide the energy-efficiency you need at a fraction of the cost of replacement windows. Storm windows attach to the outside or the inside of your existing windows, and come in a variety of types and styles. Made of glass, plastic panels, or laminate sheets, storm windows can offer varying levels of protection and energy-efficiency. Those made of glass can break easier, but they can also provide many years of trouble-free service and a crystal-clear view. Plastic panels or laminate panels provide ample protection against storms, as well as offering great energy-efficiency. However, plastics can warp and bend, or take on a yellow tinge over time. Keep in mind that for apartments or homes with multiple floors, interior storm windows are often the best bet. Easy to install and remove, interior storm windows typically provide more energy savings than those mounted on the outside of your existing windows, but they do lack some of the attractive charm!
