One of the most desired features of a home is natural lighting. While the sun’s light can surely brighten up a space and add to the overall environment, it can also cause issues. Bothersome glare, uncomfortable temperatures, and harmful UV rays can all enter through windows, causing discomfort and damage. When sunlight blasts through windows, so does infrared heat! As a result, interior temperatures rise along with energy bills while HVAC systems work to maintain the desired temperatures. Ultraviolet rays also enter through windows, causing furnishings, flooring, and artwork to fade.

From inclement weather to break-ins, windows can pose a problem and potentially put those within your space in danger.
