The HiRise Windows team onsite.
After Hurricane Sandy blew through the DC area, the phones at HiRise Windows’ offices rang off the hook with area residents desperate for help after horizontal rains penetrated their old windows and caused flooding—even on the upper floors of high rise condominiums. Now, as temperatures begin to drop, boosting energy efficiency, keeping out inclement weather, insulating from street noise and wind, and preventing drafts is key.
HiRise replaces windows and balcony doors to help protect against the elements, as well as to reduce interior noise and enhance light and functionality. The firm uses top-of-the-line, commercial-grade AAMA standard windows with thermal breaks that prevent cold from permeating rooms through conductivity.
The HiRise team replacing windows.
HiRise windows feature industry-best weather stripping (which helps block noise) and glass coated with a commercial grade high-performance low emissivity (LowE), which has a three-fold purpose: it blocks up to 70 percent of the sun’s energy to prevent overheating, prevents furnishings from fading and protects your skin from harmful UV rays. All of these features, along with HiRise’s expert installation processes and renowned customer service, work together to keep the interior of your home—and your building—at consistent temperatures while reducing monthly energy bills.
