Hurricane Season Has Started Already?

Hurricane Season Has Started Already?

You’ve read that right – hurricane season is among us! Due to the supply chain disruptions that have impacted lead times in 2021 and will continue into 2022, we want our clients to know that now is the time to act on protecting your home from extreme weather. 

It won't be long before hurricane season begins. Is your home equipped to withstand the intense Houston weather? #CustomWindowsTX #hurricaneseason #coastalimpact Click To Tweet

With that being said, if you are considering making your home more secure throughout the 2022 hurricane season, or even planning to make your home more energy efficient in advance of the Houston heat, it makes sense to start today. Here’s how you can get started in the process:

Hurricane Season Has Already Started

Homeowners and businesses are told to prepare for Hurricane Season from the first of June to the end of November. However, this doesn’t mean that hurricanes can’t occur before or after those dates. By being proactive in keeping your property safe, you can ensure that your windstorm impact windows and doors are securely installed for maximum protection when the time does come.

Most manufacturers of impact windows in Houston and even non-impact windows are facing production lead times of 4-5 months from the order date, so it’s crucial to have window installation done in time for the peak of summer heat or the start of the traditional hurricane season. With Custom Windows’ financing options, you may not have to pay anything until your windows are installed. Don’t wait to protect your home, start today!

Coastal Impact Windows & Doors 

To protect your home all year long from major hurricanes and storm surges, you’ll need to be equipped with coastal impact windows and doors. Our impact windows and hurricane protection doors come in many different types such as Vinyl, Aluminum, Fiberglass, and Clad Wood. These coastal windows and doors are from trusted brands such as Andersen, MI, Wincore, Sierra Pacific, and ProVia, and meet building code requirements for your region. 

Energy Efficient Solutions

Aside from long-term protection from sustained winds and flying debris, impact windows and doors also provide a number of benefits, like noise reduction and improved security. Each window and door installed is Energy Star rated across a wide range of partners, including Andersen, Sierra Pacific, American Window Systems, NT, ProVia, Wincore, NT, and others. Whether you need vinyl, aluminum, composite, fiberglass, or clad wood, we have a range of energy-efficient solutions for your home.

Protect Your Home From This Year’s Extreme Weather

Now is a good time to act on keeping your home safe from this hurricane season and the weather events to come. Not only will you feel safe in your home, but you’ll see great energy savings and UV ray protection from your coastal windows and doors.

Lastly, Custom Windows of Texas is proud of becoming Andersen Certified Contractors this year. Very few companies across greater Houston are selected for this, but our window installers are more than qualified to work on replacement projects of all styles and sizes.

I am thankful to our many suppliers who have continued to provide high-quality products and, importantly, clear information to help us guide our business and customers. Many of these suppliers have been with us for years including American Window Systems, NT, Sierra Pacific, and MI, while many are new to the Custom Windows family such as Andersen, Wincore, and ProVia.

Custom Windows is Now an Andersen Certified Contractor

Custom Windows is Now an Andersen Certified Contractor

Custom Windows of Texas is now a proud part of Andersen Certified Contractors in the greater Houston area! As certified installers, we have a commitment to sustainability when it comes to home improvement. So, what does this new certification mean for our clients moving forward?

Custom Windows of Texas is now an Andersen Certified Contractor! Let’s take a look at what this means for future home improvement projects: #CustomWindowsTX #homeimprovement #andersenwindows Click To Tweet

Our certification to install Andersen windows and doors provides us with product training and installation resources to ensure the right fit for each home improvement project. Let’s take a look at a brief history of Andersen Windows, what this means for residents in the Houston area, and some reasons to hire an Andersen Certified Contractor for your next project.

About Andersen Windows 

Andersen was founded in 1903 by Danish immigrant Hans Andersen and his family in Hudson, Wisconsin. Today, they are a privately owned company headquartered in Bayport, Minnesota. Their manufacturing abilities have earned them the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s 2021 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award.

Andersen Certified Contractor in the Greater Houston Area 

Very few companies across greater Houston are selected to be Andersen Certified Contractors as it is not something most window and door companies are qualified for. Houston homeowners can trust Andersen Certified Contractors with the proper installation methods of replacement windows and patio doors. We are proud to have access to all available product lines in order to find the best possible fit for your home. Each Andersen replacement window project installed by an Andersen Certified Contractor has a 2-year installation Labor Warranty backed by both Custom Windows and Andersen.

Reasons to Hire an Andersen Certified Contractor 

Certified contractors have years of experience backed by an industry leader and are deeply knowledgeable about window and door installation. The program gives contractors detailed, hands-on training which prepares them for high performance. Installers are to abide by applicable building codes and regulations and to follow Andersen’s installation guidelines. Our customers can have confidence entrusting their home to Custom Windows because Andersen conducts thorough background checks as well as enforcing strict insurance coverages before anyone can qualify as an Andersen Certified Contractor. Lastly, Andersen Certified Contractors continuously receive new information about their products and support from Andersen.

Choosing Custom Windows of Texas for Window Installations

Custom Windows is proud to be recognized as one of the few Andersen Certified Contractors across the greater Houston area. Partnering Andersen, one of the most respected brands of windows and doors in the country, with Custom Windows, with our service to the Houston market for over 40 years, creates a trustworthy combination for your next window and door project.
