A: New windows offer advanced glass features to improve energy efficiency. Here’s a look at some of the most common options:
  • Double-paned windows a.k.a. insulated windows feature two panes of glass (one pane is impact-rated) with an air pocket between them.
  • Argon gas in-fill slows heat transfer even more.
  • Low-E glass coatings reflect heat rather than absorbing it through the glass.
  • Warm-edge spacers reduce heat transfer around the perimeter of the window.
By installing windows with high-efficiency glass, you could noticeably decrease your energy bills and eliminate A/C leaks for good, making your home more comfortable no matter how hot it gets outside.

A: Garabar makes every effort to ensure that your property is safe during window and door replacement work. If necessary, we use dump trucks, not dumpsters, thus protecting your driveway. We also lay ram board and use tarps, plastic, and/or zip-walls to protect all sensitive areas to make sure we don’t damage your walls, furnishings, flooring, and carpet. We go to great lengths to make sure areas adjacent to work areas are well-protected. We also make daily sweeps of the property to ensure that no dangerous glass shards or other debris are left on the ground.
