At 7th State Builders, we specialize in ensuring your windows and doors are top quality and installed correctly.

Windows - 7th State Builders


No matter what, the windows in a home need to be upgraded at some point. Like your roof, it’s good to do this as technology gets better. If your home’s windows haven’t been replaced in the past 15 years, it’s time. Some significant indicators that your windows need replacing are that they are difficult to open, hard to clean, accumulate moisture, and you can feel a draft. Here are some benefits to updating your windows with better quality materials:

  1. Lower Energy Costs – Older windows don’t keep out the humid summers and wet winters. New windows can help decrease your heating and cooling bills.
  2. Protect Your Furniture – Sun rays can damage and fade furniture, art, etc. You can get ultraviolet ray protection up to 95% with new windows.
  3. Reduce Outside Noise – While you might still hear the Blue Angel’s practice, you can help eliminate street noise, airplanes, etc.
  4. Update Your Home’s Look – The best part is they aren’t just functional; they look great too! If you want to sell your home, this also helps.
  5. Easier Maintenance – Cleaning is more accessible in newer models. Also, with modern trim options, you can don’t have to repaint them in years to come.
