Which Type Of Window Is Best For You?

Tom Adams Windows and Carpets serves the tri-state area with a vast array of windows. Carrying the leading brand names, as well as a multitude of materials, styles, and colors, we offer something that every homeowner or builder can fit into their project perfectly. Choosing the right window can be hard for any homeowner.

How do I decide which type of window I need? Let the experts weigh in.

Bay Window

Bay windows are a combination of picture, casement, and double hung windows projecting outwards from the house. Just by adding this into your home it can significantly change the room – adding space, volume, and light. Typically, the interior and header seats are made of birch or oak, depending on the manufacturer. Additionally, you can paint or stain the interior seats. Or go for the “dogged ears,” a Philly special, lengthening the interior bottom sill.

Bow windowBow Window

Every feature listed above for bays applies to bows. Consisting of four or five windows, bows normally have at least three window combinations. Each window in a bow is equal in size although the angle can differ based on the particular job. You can choose a style for each window from casement, double hung, and picture.

 

 

Casement Window

Casement windows open and close easily by turning a handle, making them ideal for behind sinks and counters. They hinge at the side and open outward to the left or right. Typically taller than they are wide, the entire sash opens to provide exceptional ventilation.

 

Double Hung Window

double hung windows
A double hung window has a top sash that slides down and a bottom sash that slides up for better air infiltration. Unlike others, both sashes can tilt in and open. This way, you can access the outside glass from the inside, making it easier to clean. This style can come with either a standard half screen or full screen, protecting your home from insects while enjoying fresh air. Easy to operate and easy to clean, they are also energy efficient with an air-tight seal.

 

Picture Window

Square or rectangular picture windows are stationary. They don’t open, but they allow maximum light into the room. Combine them with a double hung, casement, or shape window to accent an opening. There are several options for grids available to coordinate with your home’s design.

 

Shape Window

Shape windows are picture windows that aren’t square or rectangular. They are also stationary and non-opening. A uniquely-shaped window will stand out – bringing texture, design, and shadowing into your home. There are many possibilities. Your budget and imagination are your only limits.

Why is there Condensation on my New Window?

“Why is there condensation on my new window? I can’t see a thing!”

This is a common question from homeowners after they have installed new windows in their home. There are ways to alleviate the issue, but first lets figure out why this happens.

Why Does Condensation Happen?

Condensation on our Windows in our Churchville Showroom.

Condensation occurs where humid air comes into contact with air, or a surface, which is at a lower temperature. Air contains water vapor. The warmer the air, the greater is its capacity for carrying water vapor. When warm, moist air comes into contact with a cooler surface, or cooler air, it drops in temperature, and loses some of its capacity for storing moisture, so some of it is released to form condensation in the air, as steam, or on the surface, as water droplets.

You commonly see this happen when you take a shower and the mirror fogs up or when you are having a cold drink on a hot summer day.

How Do We Fix Condensation Build Up?

It can be pretty annoying that you just bought new windows and you cannot even see out of them. When I come in early, sometimes the windows in our showroom fog up. This does not mean we installed the windows incorrectly; in a way, having condensation on your new windows show that it is working correctly. If your old windows were not having condensation build up, that means the air was going through your windows. Those drafty windows needed to be replaced.

Now that we know condensation shows your new windows are actually working , what can we do to fix it? Here are a few tips to getting rid of condensation on your windows:

-Make sure your vents are open in your home

-Open your windows (when it is practical) to let interior moisture escape

-Use ceiling fans to keep air circulating in your home

-Turn on the fan located in your kitchen during and after you cook to let the hot air out

-Use the fan located in your bathroom during and after your shower for the same reason

-Use a dehumidifier

“Why Should I Buy Your Door?”

unnamedWhy Signet Fiberglass Doors?

Here are my top reasons buyers should choose Signet Fiberglass Doors.

1. Superior Stiles & Rails
The details of the stile & rail system design make a very compelling case for choosing Signet:

Corners are dovetailed, not tack nailed. Dovetails are what you see in high-end construction or kitchen cabinetry. If you inspect kitchen drawers, when you buy something a little less expensive they’ll be stapled or glued together. Our dovetails give the door stronger construction that helps prevent warping and bowing.

The strength of the stile & rail system. A typical door in the marketplace has a 1-5/8″ rail all the way around the door that’s tack nailed or glued. On our Signet doors the strike side rail is a 4-1/4″, 4-ply hardwood stile. While most fiberglass doors have a multi-piece construction in the rail around the lockbox, the Signet strike side rail runs continuously through the height of the door, eliminating the need for a lockbox. This not only adds to the overall strength of the door, but also enhances security.

Drier wood materials. Many manufacturers use a softer wood. This means that where there are laminated veneers, any sort of moisture or cold/hot fluctuations can cause the materials to expand and contract. Just like quality-grade hardwood for furniture, our hardwood stiles and rails are kiln dried. This pre-stabilizes the wood so you don’t have as much expansion and contraction.

All of these Signet design elements make for a much more structurally-sound door that lasts. They help to resist the dreaded warping and bowing that no homeowner wants.

2. Ability to Customize
Customization is one of our sweet spots at ProVia, and it really does set us apart. We offer customized door and sidelite widths and heights in 1⁄8″ increments.

3. Authentic Wood Grain Appearance
Through the use of nickel vapor deposition technology to create Signet door skins, the Signet achieves the look of a realistic wood species. This provides the look of a real wood door, without the inherent maintenance required with a wood door.

It’s Worth It!

Give the homeowner great peace of mind and value for every dollar spent with the multiple realistic wood species options, the various stain and paint pre-finishing choices, the attention to details some can’t (won’t) apply, the overall construction, and the warranties that go along with the Signet. I think this makes the Signet well worth purchasing, and I bet lots of your customers will feel the same way.

Before & After Photos – Flooring

We like to personally thank all our customers that have allowed us into their homes the last 62 years. Here are some happy customers that wanted to show their floors, before and after Tom Adams       Windows and Carpets entered their home.

Hardwood Flooring – Popularity

This is the first blog in a series about the growing popularity of Hard Surface flooring. We will be going through hardwood flooring, vinyl and laminate trends. Some of the questions will be focusing on is how to choose the right flooring, sales representative, and deciding on which flooring company is good for you.

Popularity of Hardwood Flooring

Hard Surface (or Hardwood flooring) has become more popular than Soft Surface (Carpet) products due to changing fashion trends; whether it be through local designers, home fashion magazines or the HGTV type remodel shows. Most remodels are geared around hard surface products. Carpet has been relegated to smaller sections of today’s homes, bedrooms and family rooms.

According to the American Pets Products Association’s National Pet Owners Survey, 65% of U.S. households own a pet. Hard surface products are the preferred choice for pet owners because of the perceived ease of clean ability. Pets shed and sometimes make a mess. Even though carpet can be easy to clean and some carpet companies provide pet cleaning warranties, people believe that hard surfaces are easier to clean up by wiping it down.

Changing Trends in Flooring

Trends in flooring have changed over the years. In the 1960’s if a homeowner owned carpet in their home, they were considered wealthy. If a person had hardwood, they were perceived to be poor. In the 60’s, Hardwood came in a small variety of 3-5 colors and 2 widths for the average homeowner and builder. Carpets came in 10-15 colors with a variety of texture and plush thickness- the thicker carpet were thought as better products.

The availability of hardwood products has changed in the past 50 years. The variety of hardwood type, style, width, color, texture available can make decision making more difficult than ever. Over 100 different combinations are available in today’s flooring store. More than ever the sales representative, from the flooring store, has become the best asset to a homeowner. The sales representative has direct knowledge of each floor and how they perform in different homes. Salesmen can provide testimonials from previous customers on that product as well. Our customers can learn from other home owner’s decisions on the products, installation type and areas that have new hard surface flooring.

The Internet is an excellent tool to learn and visually inspect the floor of your dreams in a home like yours. Don’t believe everything that is on the Internet!  Here are some tips to spot misinformed articles. Often, manufacturers and blogs lead homeowners to believe their floor is 100% impenetrable to all types of scratches, pets, kids and stains. They make it appear as if cleaning is automatic; that robots or little elves come out and clean your floor while you are sleeping. Installation is always shown as that it’s “so easy even a child can install the product.” Again, this is far from the truth. You need all the correct products, the right adhesives, and the proper tools. Most do not have the correct tools and would have to purchase them. This would increase the cost of the floor by $300-$500. Then, the knowledge to work the tools correctly along with the patience and time afforded to install with the right adhesive, moisture tests, expansion joints, correct subfloor and knowing the differences between what is correct and not correct

Why Choose Hardwood Floors over other Hard Surface Flooring?

Hardwood is what people want in their home. Natural beauty, uniqueness, warmth, back to nature, complete neutral decorating (goes with everything) and residual value to your home are some of the few reasons why hardwood is a good choice. On average, hardwood adds an 80% residual value to your home, with every $10,000 that you spend adds $8,000 more to your home value. Real estate agents have also found it easier for people to sell their homes with hardwood floors. Stunning textures, colors and width dominate the home in Oak, Maple, Birch, Walnut, Brazilian Cherry and many other exotic woods. A rustic retreat is accomplished with a hand scraped 7” wide White Oak in a dark color. A modern bright home in a 5” wide natural Maple or Acacia will make any home a showcase. These products are available in solid and engineered with a nail down, glue down or floated installation. An educated sales associate will work with you to review the cost and benefits of each wood and installation.
