Frequently Asked Questions

Are replacement windows a good investment?

  • Yes, replacement windows can be a great investment. Replacing your old windows dramatically increases the energy-efficiency of your home, which can save several hundred dollars a year on heating and cooling costs.

    New windows also improve the safety and security of your home. This is especially true if your windows have rotting wood frames or broken hardware.

    Another reason to replace your windows is to increase your home’s resell value. According to real estate experts, replacement windows return 85% of your investment. Outdated windows can dissuade buyers, lower your asking price, and keep your home on the market longer. Even if a potential buyer is willing to overlook window damage, it’s one of the things that comes up most often on home inspections.

What are the advantages of vinyl?

  • Vinyl windows and doors are affordable, virtually maintenance-free, and offer enduring energy-efficiency in all weather conditions. Vinyl is the most popular type of replacement window on the market today. It is the material of choice over wood, aluminum, and composite/fiberglass.

    It’s important to note that not all vinyl is created equal. Decades ago, vinyl windows had a bad reputation for distortion and discoloration over time. CVP Windows & Doors windows are produced with uPVC (unplasticized-polyvinyl chloride), not PVC. This engineered vinyl extrusion is strong, durable, and stands up to the damaging effects of ultra-violet light. 

What do the NFRC performance standards mean?

The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) is a non-profit trade organization that certifies windows and doors using standardized criteria. All reputable window and door manufacturers submit their products for testing. Ask to see the NFRC label for any product you’re considering before you sign a contract. For more information, visit

Here are a few things to look for:

  • U-Value: The U-value (or factor) indicates how much heat flows through the window. A lower number means the window will insulate better.
  • Solar Heat Gain Coefficient:         A measure of the amount of solar heat absorbed through a window, which is especially important during the summer months.
  • EnergyStar®: A program of the Environmental Protection Agency to help consumers make well-informed purchase decisions on energy-efficient products.
  • DP Rating: Design Pressure (DP) ratings indicate how well the product can withstand structural load, water pressure, and air infiltration (wind). A higher value indicates a more durable product.

All CVP Windows & Doors windows and doors meet or exceed EnergyStar® standards and are certified by the American Architectural Manufacturer’s Association (AAMA) and the National Fenestration Ratings Council (NFRC).

Our windows also carry a DP rating of 50, which means they’ve been tested to withstand hurricane-force winds up to 173 mph. 

What should I look for in replacement windows?
