New construction windows are a key component of your new house, room addition or major home renovation.
Windows allow the all-important natural light into your home while maintaining a safe, energy-efficient barrier between your home and the great outdoors. They also add style and depth to your home’s appearance, enhancing the design and architectural detail.
Rocky Mountain Window & Door, serving customers throughout Utah, is proud to be the leading supplier of new construction windows in the Intermountain West.
What Are New Construction Windows?
The difference between new and replacement windows involves both the design of the frames and the way each is installed in your home.
Installed early in the construction process, new windows are attached directly to the framing. This is achieved by nailing through a special fin around the outside of the frame. Once the frames are in, contractors complete the rest of the construction around them. New build installations are completed from the outside of the home.
Replacement models are installed using a different process for attachment that doesn’t disturb the exterior siding materials or interior drywall. Consequently, they don’t have the nailing fin that net models do. The installation process for replacement frames is completed primarily from the interior of the home.
Types of New Construction Windows
Depending on your budget and the architectural style of your home, you may prefer to select wood windows, composite, vinyl or aluminum models or a hybrid wood-clad style. We also offer today’s most durable glass block windows.
Each type of design provides distinct advantages over the others. For example, aluminum frames are the most cost-effective option. Wood and vinyl styles offer a high level of energy efficiency. And, for the ultimate in luxury and style, solid wood frames are a classic choice.
Maintenance requirements vary but both vinyl and aluminum styles require very little upkeep. Finish options vary based on the manufacturer and frame material. However, you can choose from dozens of colors and finish styles.
