Home improvement projects aren’t easy, and window replacement is no exception. Window replacement isn’t as simple as picking one standard window to replace all the windows throughout your home; it requires knowledge and expertise from remodeling professionals. While many homeowners may try to tackle window replacement on their own, we recommend leaving the project to the experts to ensure it’s done correctly the first time. But with so many companies to choose from, how do you know which is the best fit for you? We recommend working with an experienced team who specialize in window replacement. At Window Nation, our team of window replacement experts have over fifteen years of experience, guaranteeing your project will be handled by one of the most experienced teams in the industry. Our team will work hard to ensure you get the replacement windows, siding, and doors of your dreams.

No Obligation In-Home Estimates

The best way for our team to understand your project is to meet with you and any other homeowners in person. You won’t have to come to our showroom – an exterior design consultant will come to your home to see your windows in person. Our exterior design consultants aren’t salespeople; they’re home improvement experts who are specially trained in window replacement. They’ll discuss your project with you and provide a quote good for up to six months, so there’s no pressure to buy on the spot.

Variety of Styles and Colors

Looking to give your home a curb appeal boost? Replacement windows from Window Nation will do the trick. We offer windows in a variety of styles including double hung, bays, and bows so you can give your home the upgrade it needs. We also offer specialty windows if you’re looking to replace windows with a unique shape. All windows are available in either wood or vinyl with over 70 interior and exterior color options to choose from.

Energy Savings

Many homeowners look to replace their windows to lower their energy bills and make their home more energy efficient. Replacement windows from Window Nation are equipped with premium energy efficiency features to keep your home feeling comfortable no matter the season. Choose from energy efficient wood or vinyl windows, available in both double pane and triple pane glass for maximum energy efficiency. No matter the style you choose, you can feel comfortable knowing your windows are Energy Star certified, boosting your home’s energy efficiency for years to come.

Precise Measurements

The only thing more important than the replacement window you choose? The company who measures and installs them. When you choose Window Nation, you can feel comfortable knowing your windows are measured down to 3 millimeters, guaranteeing a perfect fit. Our measure technicians will check all measurements three times before your windows are installed to ensure a tight seal.

Quality Installation

Replacement window installation is arguably the most important part of your project, which is why we hire only the best installers in the industry. Our installation crews are led by a master-level team leader who is certified by InstallationMasters’ Certified Installer program. Our installers are thorough and efficient, taking time to ensure your windows are installed properly. Once installation is complete, your crew leader will review your installation using a twenty-point checklist for quality assurance. The project isn’t done until it gets the final approval from you.

High-Quality Customer Service

Most window replacement companies offer lifetime warranties on their windows; however, at Window Nation, we offer a Lifetime Plus warranty, so your windows will be protected as long as you own your home. Your windows will also be covered for an additional fifteen years should you choose to sell your home. If your windows need repairs, our team of customer service professionals will work quickly to schedule a time for our service technicians to assess the problem and perform any necessary maintenance.

As colder weather approaches, homeowners become aware of drafts. One familiar cold spot in the house is exterior doors. It is noticeably cooler around exterior facing doors this time of year. 

While energy efficiency is typically a big piece of the decision, when considering replacing your front door, looks are equally important. Replacing your home's entry door accomplishes more than just creating a cozier interior.   

Your entryway is a big part of your home's curb appeal.   

Not only does the entryway make an impression on you, but a good-looking front door can also do wonders for your home's resale value. With so many door styles available, choosing a new entry door for your home can feel like a daunting decision.   

Not only is there an incredible selection of door styles to choose from, but you also must take into consideration the material of the door.   

For a long time, wood has been the material of choice for many homeowners. Its beauty and durability made this material ideal. But, with advancements in science and fabrication, wood is no longer the best choice.   

When it comes time to replace a door, most people turn to fiberglass and steel to safeguard their investment.   

Fiberglass and steel are both more resistant to the elements, easier on maintenance requirements, better on energy efficiency, and often a less expensive option than wood. But how do they compare to each other? And what are the accompanying features?   

Let's break it down:  

STEEL DOORS  

If you're looking to have new doors installed on your home, you can't go wrong with steel. It is a versatile material that comes with a lot of options. Some may even surprise you!  

  • When you think of a steel door, do you picture an old rusting door on the back of a building that only gives access to an alleyway? While a reinforced steel door is excellent for rear door security, you can get a whole lot more style and elegance from steel than this. But, it is essential to note that when it comes to home security, steel might give a hair more protection than fiberglass.  
  • Steel doors can come with a woodgrain. It's true! At Window Nation, our exclusive accent finishing technique creates a finish that gives our steel doors the appearance of real wood if you want a door that looks like a fine oak door but has the durability and low cost of steel, no problem! While the wood finish on a steel door can't thoroughly compare to the same look with fiberglass, it is worth taking a look at, especially for the cost.  
  • Do you want windows in your new doors? There is a wide selection of glass options available for steel doors. You don't have to worry about fiberglass beating out steel in this department.  
  • While steel is strong and durable, it is more prone to scratching and denting than fiberglass. Though it is possible to fix dents with an auto-body repair kit, and cover scratches with putty and paint, this is something to consider when getting steel.  
  • Steel can become hot to the touch on a warm sunny day, but that heat isn't going to get through the insulation that comes with these doors easily. You're not going to lose any energy-saving benefits by choosing steel.  

FIBERGLASS DOORS  

Some in the industry advertise that fiberglass comes with all the benefits of steel, without any of its limitations. This is only partly true.  

In almost every way, fiberglass doors are slightly better than steel. But, this material will crack if struck hard. Steel will not.  

Here are some other things you may want to know about fiberglass.  

  • There are many styles, colors, and grains to choose from when selecting fiberglass as the material for your new doors. If you're looking for doors that will closely approximate the look of real wood, this is the best option.  
  • With fiberglass, you don't even have to think about rust. While it is relatively easy to keep a steel door rust-free, some homeowners prefer not to have to worry about it. If that sounds like you, fiberglass is the way to go.  
  • Fiberglass isn't as heavy as steel, but that doesn't mean you'll have to sacrifice having that satisfying "thunk" sound when you close your fiberglass doors. At Window Nation, we manufacture the internal structure of these doors to simulate the same weight of wood. You'll be happy with the sturdy sound you'll get with this option.  
  • Exposure to heat over time can cause doors to crack, swell, and warp, which can harm the frame and seal of an entry door. While steel and fiberglass are more resistant to this than wood, fiberglass is slightly better. The material will hold up against extreme temperature fluctuations and keep its shape for a long, long time, but you'll have to pay a little more for this added durability.  

When it comes to getting a new door for your home, you can't go wrong with either of these two materials. If you've been thinking about upgrading, let Window Nation help. Schedule your free, no-obligation in-home estimate today, and let's get started! 

What happens when you let a card-throwing magician hang out in your Cleveland office for the day? Your windows will become props for optical illusions and magic tricks, that’s what! We experienced the fun firsthand when we invited Cleveland-based magician Rick Smith Jr. to perform some magic at our office, and we weren’t disappointed.



Rick and his special guest, Kevin Lustgarten, used our Window Nation windows to demonstrate a few of their signature impossible trick shots. Our slider window was put up to the task when they threw a ball through its pane without breaking the glass in the Magician’s Window challenge. While we don’t recommend trying this at home, Rick and Kevin made it look easy – even we were baffled! While we were busy making magic happen with our windows, Rick was busy making actual magic happen. He began his career in magic at seven years old and started card-throwing in college. Based in Cleveland, Rick performs over 600 shows each year in addition to filming YouTube videos for over 300,000 followers. If you’re in the market for new windows, check out Rick’s video above to see how our glass stands up to the test. If you like what you see, schedule an in-home consultation with our exterior design consultants to receiving pricing and more information about your windows.

This year, make the home improvement fixes that you have been putting off years. Start off small by adding simple touches, such as new accent furniture or replacing existing lighting fixtures. If you’re looking to make major changes, consider replacing your old, drafty windows with new windows from Window Nation. No matter the project size, following our tips to give your home a shake-up will make your home feel like new again:

  1. Update Paint – Re-paint the rooms in your house for a quick and easy way to make your home feel new again. Popular colors in 2019 include jewel tones, such as rich greens and golds, and muted colors including dusty pinks and blues. If you’re looking for a subtle change, consider adding an accent wall instead of completely repainting.
  2. Bring in More Light – If your rooms feel dark and dingy, consider purchasing new lighting fixtures to bring in additional light. Look for the Energy Star seal on the products you purchase for maximum energy efficiency. If you’re looking for a bigger change, replace your existing windows with double hung windows, perfect for rooms that face porches or decks.
  3. Add Color – Make old furniture feel like new again by adding accent pillows or blankets to add a pop of color to your rooms. Room accents in bright colors will make a splash in drab rooms. Consider pairing bright room accents with black and white furnishings for an extra pop.
  4. Upgrade your Space – If you’re looking to make big changes to your home in 2019, consider replacing your existing windows with new bay windows from Window Nation. Bay windows can change the look and feel of your rooms, creating an inviting reading nook or a unique look into your backyard.
  5. Add a Backsplash – Your kitchen is one of the most-used rooms in your house, so why not make it fun? Replace old, boring tile with a patterned backsplash for a more modern appearance. Geometric patterns are particularly trendy, adding an interesting pop to your space.

If you feel your home is stuck in a rut, consider making changes to your rooms to make your old home feel like new again. Start off small by adding pops of color and patterns to your existing rooms or make larger changes by replacing your existing windows with bay windows from Window Nation.

If you decide 2019 is the year to replace your windows, our exterior design consultants are here to help with all your window replacement needs. Schedule your in-home consultation today!

Here are the top 3 reasons our doors are a great fit for you:

Security and ease of access

The days of inside-only access to your patio are long gone! Today’s more modern door designs come with top of the line security features including an exterior key lock and a secondary dead bolt. You can enjoy a sliding door which can be accessed from the outside as well as a peace of mind from the extra lock security.

Durability

Our 100% vinyl screen frames are designed to last even in the harsh months of Winter. Much like our vinyl replacement windows, these frames are less susceptible to damage and are designed to move smoother in comparison to standard frames. This offers you a smooth, clean look to your home -- a great bonus to the quality.

Cost efficiency

Saving energy means saving money! Energy.gov shared that a common way air and heat escape the home is through the cracks or openings of windows and doors. Polypropylene is a plastic that is commonly used for microwavable containers and bags made to preserve food. We use the same material in the composition of our doors and Energy Star windows because of its high resistance to heat and moisture. This not only makes our product more robust, but more efficient to keeping moisture and air outside where they belong.

With our sliding, entry, and French doors, you are guaranteed a long-lasting and efficient investment. We offer a lifetime limited warranty should you have any issues with your door, but we are always working to provide the best quality in the market!
