Truck1.jpg

When it comes to enhancing the aesthetic appeal and energy efficiency of your home, choosing the right windows is crucial. Karma Construction Group proudly manufactures custom windows for the Miami, DC, VA, and MD areas, offering unparalleled quality and customization options. Whether you need windows in any size, quantity, or color, our expert team ensures that every window meets your specific needs.

 

 Types of Windows We Offer

 

 1. Single-Hung Windows

Single-hung windows have a fixed top sash and a movable bottom sash. They are a popular choice for their simplicity and classic design, perfect for traditional homes.

 

 2. Double-Hung Windows

Double-hung windows feature two operable sashes that can move up and down. This design offers improved ventilation and ease of cleaning, making them a versatile option for any room.

 

 3. Casement Windows

Casement windows are hinged on the side and open outward, similar to a door. They provide excellent ventilation and unobstructed views, ideal for hard-to-reach areas.

 

 4. Sliding Windows

Sliding windows have sashes that slide horizontally. They are easy to operate and are perfect for wide openings, providing expansive views and ample ventilation.

 

 5. Awning Windows

Awning windows are hinged at the top and open outward. They are often used in combination with other window styles and are great for providing ventilation while keeping out rain.

 

 6. Bay and Bow Windows

Bay and bow windows extend outward from the home, creating a spacious feel inside. They are perfect for adding natural light and enhancing the curb appeal of your home.

 

 7. Picture Windows

Picture windows are large, fixed windows that provide unobstructed views of the outdoors. They are perfect for areas where ventilation is not a concern but where natural light is desired.

 

 What Makes a Window Energy Efficient?

 

Energy-efficient windows are designed to prevent your heated or cooled air from escaping your home. Here are key features that contribute to their efficiency:

 

 1. Low-E Glass

Low-emissivity (Low-E) glass has a special coating that reflects infrared light, keeping heat inside during winter and outside during summer. This helps maintain a consistent indoor temperature.

 

 2. Double or Triple Glazing

Windows with double or triple glazing have two or three panes of glass with air or gas-filled spaces in between. This additional layer of insulation significantly reduces heat transfer.

 

 3. Argon or Krypton Gas Fills

The spaces between the panes in double or triple-glazed windows can be filled with argon or krypton gas. These gases are denser than air, providing better insulation and improving energy efficiency.

 

 4. Warm Edge Spacers

Warm edge spacers are used to keep the panes of glass apart and reduce heat transfer around the edges of the window. They improve the overall thermal performance of the window.

 

 5. Insulated Frames

Energy-efficient windows often come with insulated frames made from materials like vinyl or fiberglass. These frames help to reduce heat transfer and improve the window’s insulation properties.

 

 Understanding Window Pricing

 

When it comes to upgrading or installing new windows, understanding the pricing structure is essential. The cost of windows can vary significantly based on the type, material, size, and installation requirements. At Karma Construction Group, we offer a wide range of custom windows for the Miami, DC, VA, and MD areas, ensuring that you get the best value for your investment.

 

 Factors Influencing Window Pricing

 

1. Window Type

   - Single-Hung Windows: Typically more affordable due to their simpler design.

   - Double-Hung Windows: Slightly higher in cost due to the additional operable sash.

   - Casement Windows: Generally more expensive due to their complex hardware.

   - Sliding Windows: Moderate pricing, suitable for wider openings.

   - Awning Windows: Priced similarly to casement windows due to similar mechanisms.

   - Bay and Bow Windows: Higher cost due to their larger size and more complex installation.

   - Picture Windows: Prices vary based on size, with larger fixed panes costing more.

 

2. Material

   - Vinyl Windows: Affordable and energy-efficient, making them a popular choice.

   - Aluminum Windows: More expensive due to their durability and sleek design but less energy-efficient unless thermal breaks are included.

 

3. Size and Customization

   - Custom sizes and colors can increase the cost.

   - Larger windows require more materials and labor, leading to higher prices.

 

4. Energy Efficiency Features

   - Low-E glass, double or triple glazing, gas fills, and insulated frames add to the cost but provide significant energy savings in the long run.

 

5. Installation

   - Professional installation ensures proper fitting and sealing, crucial for energy efficiency and durability.
