Wood Windows No More

CASE STUDY | Windows | Mr. Wines | Brentwood, TN

Upgrade to New Windows for Big Energy Performance and Major WOW Factor

This is exactly what Mr. and Mrs. Wines from Brentwood, TN did.

The Wines did their homework, too. They saw the big window sale Durante Home Exteriors featured in the Nashville Clipper Magazine. They had recently bought the house, and they were researching options about what to do about the old windows, and contacted us for a free estimate to see what we could offer them.

They had a beautiful home with large wooden windows throughout, which offered gorgeous views of their property and surrounding area. The largest windows were found in their living room, which filled the home with natural light.

The Wines began noticing that wood rot had developed around the perimeter of the windows. The old windows were made out of wood and had been caulked and painted several times, but the wood rot kept coming back. The windows were originally installed sometime in the 70s.

In addition to wood rot, the seals were going bad as well. As old windows age, especially wood windows, they begin to deteriorate and warp. Fluctuating temperatures from one season to the next can weaken the components of wood windows to the point where seal failure and air infiltration become inevitable concerns.

Replacing the Windows Made the Most Financial Sense

Rather than trying to put a “Band-Aid” on the window situation and keep having to paint and repair, Mr. and Mrs. Wines hired Durante to install new windows- and the finished product looks SO GOOD!

They no longer have to worry about air leakage- the new windows have made their home airtight. They also don’t have to worry about maintenance- the windows we installed are virtually maintenance free and won’t require any painting. Their maintenance headaches have disappeared.
