Come learn from the work of Pella Corporation and the Weidt Group, on their case-studies that analyzed the effects of replacing windows in a wide variety of buildings across the United States. Windows are known to have substantial effects on the problems regarding energy savings, however often times the details of their significance are lost. With the help from Pella and the Weidt group, the weaknesses of windows are surfaced, and the benefits of replacing them are brought to our attention.
Enjoy conversation, and strengthen your knowledge on the potential benefits of window replacement projects!
