Your windows are essential for comfort and security and, if energy-efficient, can keep your energy bills low. Upgrading your windows will add value to your home and ensure lasting comfort for your family. At Zen Windows St. Louis, we recommend multi-window replacement because it’s the best way to maximize the value of your investment.

Here are four options for replacement windows that range in quality:

Basic Windows With Glass, Screen & Spacer

Silica sand and sodium carbonate are the basic building blocks for modern windows. Modern windows are so much more than a pane of glass. They’re heated and combined into a molten mix, then rolled into a solid, even layer.

These windows are engineered to incorporate screens, spacers, and fillers that protect against fires, condensation, UV rays, and more. The result is an energy-efficient window that provides comprehensive protection and comfort.

Basic Windows With Triple-Pane Glass

Triple-pane windows have two spacers instead of the singular spacer in double-pane windows. A heavy-duty solution, they’re more durable than double-pane windows and offer superior energy savings.

Because the windows are heavier, they require a sturdier frame to support the additional weight. Triple-pane windows also provide better sound insulation, and the additional gas fill in the windows prevents the winter weather from creeping in.

SoftLite Windows

SoftLite windows are one of the most popular and highest quality windows. They feature low-E glass, offer exceptional energy efficiency and durability, and require minimal maintenance. They’re available in a wide range of styles and sizes, making it easy to incorporate them throughout the home.

The design of SoftLite windows offers significant protection from heat gain and heat loss, meaning these windows will save you money year-round.

SoftLite window styles include:
