Choosing the Best Home Windows
Home windows can be confusing. Here at 5280 Exteriors, a Colorado window company, we wanted to make sure you feel confident about your purchase. It is important for homeowners to understand that not all windows are effective in our harsh Colorado climate, which is why we carry only vinyl, wood-clad and fiberglass windows designed to perform and last in these unique conditions.
While searching for the right product for your home, you should be concerned with three primary attributes:
These three variables can help you decide which window is the right fit for your home. In addition, you should ask yourself if you’re more focused on the energy efficiency of your home or if you’re more determined to match your cedar siding with a wood-clad window. Each window has their own strengths, and by selecting the one that fits your lifestyle, you’ll likely be happier in the long run.
Regardless of what you choose, we specialize in providing products and services that set the highest standards when it comes to all three. You can trust that our team will take the time to properly spec out your project, discuss your options with you and install an effective solution that will make you proud of your home.

Below, we’ve outlined a few options and take you through the positive and negatives of each more in-depth. Once you determine which one feels right for you, we have a full team of expert window contractors to help install them.
Vinyl windows are more economical, easier to install, and require minimal maintenance compared to alternative window options like aluminum, wood, or fiberglass. They are a great choice to combat Colorado’s tough climate and come with a lifetime warranty.
We recommend Anlin vinyl windows and doors for their clean glass look, noise reduction, and sizing and security options.
WOOD AND ALUMINUM WINDOWS
Wood windows bring a richness and warmth to a room. You can customize the interior and paint or stain it any color you would like to match the interior of your home. They’re durable in the Colorado weather due to its expansion and contrasting thresholds which allows them to last a long time. The Pella wood windows are perfect for a home along-side the Rocky Mountains.
Fiberglass windows are a great way to combine energy efficiency and durability in a window. It is a low maintenance product with a very durable frame. They come in a multitude of colors and have a lifetime warranty. The Beechworth Window allows a combination of a wooden interior with a durable fiberglass exterior for the best of both worlds.
