New replacement windows can make a dramatic difference in any home. They can make your home quieter, more attractive, and less drafty.  In addition, they can also help reduce your carbon footprint and save you time and money on frequent painting and difficult cleaning.

Matt Norminkin of K&M Building and Remodeling removed the wooden windows and trim and installed new Harvey Energy Star Replacement Windows with metal wrap.  The result is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient.


According to the National Association of Realtors’ 2016 Cost Versus Value study, homeowners get about 73% of their replacement window investment back when they resell the house.
