Window and patio door replacements do more than simply make your home look nicer. They also help protect your home from UV rays. Ultraviolet rays entering through windows and patio doors can lead to fading of furniture, carpet, window treatments, and artwork. These and other materials, especially ones with organic fabrics, are susceptible to fading when exposed to sunlight. Upgrading your windows to more energy-efficient products helps reduce fading and extends the life of your belongings.
