Wherever you live, the sun shines on your home (at least occasionally), and its powerful UV rays affect your house’s materials and components… not the least of which are your windows.
But in Colorado, where the air is thin and the house is closer to the sun to begin with (often a mile or more closer), the effect is significantly magnified.
From their appearance (both inside and outside) to their overall effectiveness, UV rays from the Colorado sun can have a major impact on your windows.
That’s why, when it’s time to replace those worn-out windows in your Colorado home, it’s important to choose windows designed for Colorado and manufactured in Colorado.
Windows designed and built “back east” are just fine for replacing worn-out windows “back east.”
But here in the Rocky Mountain paradise we call home, only locally-designed and locally-built windows can stand up to the pounding they’ll get from the Colorado climate… particularly the sunshine we get more than 300 days each year.
How UV Rays Affect Your Home’s Windows
Your windows most likely consist of two panes of glass mounted within a frame (a vinyl frame, in the case of the best windows for Colorado) and separated by molded pieces of metal or other material known as “spacers.” The space between the panes is sealed, and filled with a gas (typically Argon) which serves as additional sealant and insulation.
When the temperature rises, so does the pressure inside that space between the glass panes (and when the temperature drops, so does the pressure).
In Colorado, it’s not uncommon to find radical swings in outdoor temperature (and, therefore, in the air pressure within your windows) within a matter of minutes. The sun goes behind clouds, and the temperature can drop ten, fifteen, even as much as 25 degrees in a short period of time… and then shoot back up when the clouds move away.
That’s how intense the Colorado sunlight can be.
It can really stress your windows!
The glass is stressed, of course… but even the frame can warp, fade, or become discolored under the harsh light of the Colorado sun.
That’s why you need replacement windows designed and built in Colorado for our unique (and sometimes harsh) climate.
The Best Replacement Windows For Your Colorado Home…
… Are designed and made right here by Amerimax. The company’s “Ameriglass” system provides the best replacement windows you can get to stand up to the Colorado sun.
Ameriglass window panes are made of low-emissivity glass (glass that gas doesn’t readily permeate) and coated with double microscopic layers of silver (to resist the sun’s harsh UV rays). The spacers that separate the panes aren’t metal – they’re state-of-the-art foam which, combined with the Argon gas sealant, give the Ameriglass window system unparalleled durability and energy efficiency.
And here’s perhaps the best feature: Ameriglass’ unique design helps break down dirt and grime so that it can be more easily rinsed away with water… making your new windows almost “naturally” clean!
Let the sunshine in without letting the sun’s rays wreck your windows. Replace your old, worn windows with cutting-edge vinyl replacement windows from Amerimax. Enjoy the warmth and beauty of the Colorado sun year-round, without worrying about the harsh effects of UV rays!
