A Buyer's Guide to Windows

They’re one of the most important—and expensive—parts of a house. We help you sort through the materials, styles, and ratings that will influence your choice.

From frame materials, insulated glass, and spacers, to coatings, films, impact-resistant and self-cleaning glass, writer Sean Groom gives you all the information you could possibly be seeking as you shop for new windows. Groom also deciphers window labels and jargon, provides a handy compendium of window styles, and discusses the pros and cons of replacement windows. And finally, you'll understand how to choose energy-saving windows, no matter where you live.
