Replacement windows are a very important investment in your home’s value, comfort, and curb appeal. Like many factors that can severely alter the overall condition of your home, replacement window installation is best left to experienced Detroit-area professionals, like the experts at Wallside Windows. But what are some of the benefits of choosing professional window installation?
Doing the Job Right
If you’re installing replacement windows in your home, you’re probably looking forward to a draft-free, more energy efficient home. But replacement windows installed poorly or incorrectly won’t give you any of these benefits, and may in fact make the problem worse! Improper window installation can increase the risk of air and water leaks, moisture seepage, rotting, and other structural problems. Hiring a replacement window professional gives you the peace of mind knowing that your new energy efficient windows were installed correctly.
No Warranty Confusion
Avoiding the cost of professional replacement window installation can actually lead to higher costs down the road. In the event that the installation failed or the windows were damaged, a big-box store window manufacturer may be reluctant to cover the windows under warranty if they were not installed by a licensed professional. Because Wallside Windows is the factory and the installer, your windows will be protected by our 35-year warranty, ensuring that you’ll always have a comfortable, energy efficient home.
Fast and Efficient
Finally, our professional replacement window installers can complete a window installation quickly and efficiently.

Although a little privacy is warranted, your bathroom needs a beautiful, energy efficient window as much as any other room in your home. However, your bathroom replacement window options may be a little different than what you may find in a living room or bedroom. Here’s a look at some different designs to consider when choosing a replacement window for your bathroom.
Small and Bright
Typically, bathroom windows are designed to restrict visibility from the outside, while still allowing for natural light to flow into the room. One style that meets both of these requirements is the small-but-bright option for bathroom windows. Smaller casement windows and porthole windows, for example, can allow adequate natural light into your bathroom without exposing the room to the outdoors. High placement of these small windows can further enhance bathroom privacy.
Wide Open Windows
Alternatively, some homeowners will prioritize the aesthetic appeal of floor-to-ceiling or large cathedral windows over their desire for privacy. These replacement windows let in much more light, and can incorporate decorative muntins for added effect. In more modern homes, wall-to-wall windows are very common and create a simple, minimalist feel while also capitalizing on natural light.
Custom Glass Options
No matter what size of window you choose, customized glass will help to enhance privacy without turning your bathroom into a dark cave. Etched and grooved glass, textured glass, and gray or frosted glass can allow light into your bathroom while obscuring who or what is inside. These options make it easy to get the look you want in your bathrooms while maintaining your privacy.
For more information on your bathroom window options, contact the replacement window professionals at Wallside Windows of Michigan. We custom build every window that leaves our factory, and provide custom installation services with a 35-year warranty. Call (313) 908-5243 to learn about the range of window options for bathrooms we have available.

Michiganders are no strangers to the vast temperature extremes of the Midwest. Year after year, we endure frigid winters and humid summers, making it a challenge to maintain comfortable indoor temperatures at an affordable price. The key to maintaining indoor comfort is choosing the right type of window frame to seal in the heat or cold in your home. Here’s how different window frame materials stack up in energy efficiency and comfort.
Aluminum Window Frames
Although aluminum is cheap and durable, it is a very rapid conductor of heat. This makes it the least ideal material for window frame construction, particularly in the Metro Detroit area where the temperature fluctuates so much throughout the year. If you have aluminum windows in your home, you’ll notice a dramatic difference in indoor comfort, humidity, and energy savings by installing new non-metal replacement windows.
Wood Window Frames
Wood windows are very popular throughout Michigan, and can be found in many different shapes and styles. Although they can be very attractive, wooden frames expand and contract very easily with changes in temperature. This can cause seasonal water and air leaks, poor performance in high humidity, and lots of energy inefficiency. A great alternative to traditional wood window frames are vinyl window frames with wood interior trim for a more traditional look.
Vinyl Windows Frames
One of the most energy efficient and affordable window options available in Michigan is vinyl replacement windows. Combined with Low-E glass, argon gas insulation, and Wallside Windows’s Intercept Spacer System, vinyl replacement windows can dramatically reduce air seepage between your home’s interior and exterior, resulting in more comfortable indoor temperatures, less wasted energy, and greater cost savings. Plus, vinyl windows are also long lasting, making them a worthwhile investment in your home that’ll last for decades.
