Window Material and Color

The biggest consideration for your window features is the frame material and color.

Zen Windows offers vinyl windows, which are durable, affordable, low-maintenance, and weather-resistant. Best of all, they’re recyclable at the end of their lifetime.

While the traditional white window is a classic for a reason, Zen Windows’ windows can be customized in a range of colors, from subtle neutrals to bold black. You can even have different colors on the exterior and interior. 

Call 301-337-5656 today to learn more about the materials and color options available at Zen Windows DC.

Replacement Window Grid Styles

Grid styles are easy to overlook if you’re not used to shopping for windows, but they have a huge impact on how your windows look. This refers to the patterns of wood or other materials that cross over the pane of glass. It’s mostly an aesthetic concern, though some grids and grilles may add additional structural integrity to the glass.

Be sure to consider your options here, lest you miss out on your perfect window!

Replacement Window Glass Options & Features

Glass usually doesn’t have a huge impact on the appearance of your window, but it has a colossal impact on performance. Choosing low-emissivity or low-E glass can significantly reduce how much heat energy passes through your windows, as can choosing to double- or triple-pane your windows, choosing gas filling options, etc.

You may also consider impact-resistant options for added security or a reduced risk of costly accidents.

Window Hardware Options

Hardware makes up a relatively small part of the appearance of a window, compared to door or cabinet hardware, but it’s still worth considering if you want to end up with your perfect window. The right hardware can mean the difference between a sleek, modern window and a classic design, even if all else is the same — to say nothing of the potential impact on utility.

Replacement Window Product Lines

When shopping windows at Zen Windows DC, it’s worth noting that we divide our products across general lines of window, increasing in quality with each step:

Make sure to ask about the differences between these and choose the right balance between features and cost to suit your needs and budget.

Other Replacement Window Features

You may want to consider other features in shopping for replacement windows:

  • ENERGY STAR®: For an at-a-glance assessment of the energy efficiency of a window, check for an ENERGY STAR certification.
  • Spacer systems: Systems like warm-edge spacers can have a huge impact on the energy efficiency of windows, minimizing condensation, energy loss, etc.
