There are a lot of factors to consider when choosing the right windows for your home: cost, climate, durability, and energy efficiency, to name a few. In previous blog posts we’ve discussed some of your options for increasing the value and performance of your windows with glazes and glass, taking advantage of extended tax credits, and the importance of manufacturer warranties and installation guarantees like our Peace of Mind maintenance plan. But there is another thing to consider when choosing your doors and windows—something that realtors have been talking about for years: location, location, location. Where you live is important in terms of geography and climate, but beyond that your location in your chosen city matters, too. Read on:
Geography & Climate
As a Houstonian you know that humidity, heat, rain, and high winds—even the occasional hurricane—are going to affect the decisions you make for your home.

We all live in the same city, but as you drive the city streets it’s easy to see that each neighborhood has its own distinct personality.

To illustrate, here are descriptions of just a few of Houston’s beautiful neighborhoods, each possessing of their own style and individuality:
What about the ‘Burbs?
As Houstonians we also know that the geography of our city includes the “OTL” and “ITL” distinctions. (That’s “outside the loop” and “inside the loop” for newcomers and visitors!) Folks living in the suburbs will encounter different home styles depending on the community in which they choose to live, just like inside the city, but there are perhaps more opportunities for affordable new-home construction or older home renovation.
