Who: Gary & Melody McCardle
Where: Etna, OH
What: Whole-House Window Replacement
Gary and Melody McCardle didn’t start 2020 with the intention of getting all new windows in their home. But when another service provider indicated some of their windows had broken seals, the couple knew that investing in the best replacement windows would benefit their lifestyle from day one, and their home for the long haul.
In addition to broken seals in some windows, pointing to a lack of energy efficiency, “I couldn’t lift the windows,” Melody says. “I was struggling every time I wanted to open them.” After learning about the high-quality glass, spacer, frame and sash in the Performax54 windows, Melody says she and her husband knew working with Improveit was the right choice. “Sometimes when you make a big decision like that, you can second-guess yourself,” she says. “With Improveit, I never questioned it. I knew from the demonstration and seeing the energy efficiency and how easy the windows would be to operate that this was meant to be.”
All of the McCardles’ original double-hung windows were replaced, along with the patio door. “We replaced several of our double-hung windows with sliding windows,” Gary says. “Our favorite is the casement window above the kitchen sink. It was a real struggle leaning over the sink and trying to raise the window – a few inches is all it would go. With our new window, we can open the entire window all the way with a few cranks of the handle.”
Melody, a plant lover, says the slider and casement replacement windows let in so much light that she doesn’t intend to put up curtains, and has even taken up birdwatching. Gary says the replacement windows are so easy to operate that they’ve started calling them “finger windows.” “You can open these windows with a single finger!” he says. “That would have been impossible with our old windows.” He was also appreciative of the installers’ attention to detail. “They were very professional, efficient, and clean, and they took extra measures not to damage our new roof [by using a lift] when they replaced the attic windows.”
