Consider Replacing your Old Windows, Exterior Doors, or Siding

New Windows for America offers custom windows to fit every style and budget of your home.

Refresh Your Landscaping

  • Inspect your trees and shrubs and be on the lookout for cracks, broken limbs, or seasonal effects. Your trees and shrubs could benefit from some pruning to encourage new growth.
    Consult a tree or shrub expert for additional help as they also can help with insect activity.
  • Add fresh mulch to help protect your trees and shrubs as it acts as a protective barrier and prevents weeds from emerging.
  • Add plants and flowers to give a welcome and warm entrance. Consult your local nursery for advice on different plants and flowers and of course the best time to plant.

Add Outdoor Lighting

Adding outside lighting features can help highlight your home, increase your time spent outside, improve safety and security, and increase your property value. Consider replacing exterior light fixtures, adding pathway lights, or garden lights, or even some home security lights.

Clean up your Home’s Exterior

Give your home a fresh and clean look, by power washing the exterior of your home, cleaning your windows, sweeping off your front porch, and clearing out your gutters and downspouts. For more tips on spring home maintenance tips, click here.

It is a perfect time to get outdoors and start tackling some of those home projects that we couldn’t get to over the cold winter. After months of wind, flying dirt, and cold weather, the winter has most likely left its mark on your home.

Spring Home Improvement Checklist

  1. Clean gutters and downspouts: Clear out any debris that may have accumulated over the winter to prevent water damage.

  3. Check windows and doors for drafts: Inspect windows and doors for gaps or leaks and replace weatherstripping or caulking where necessary.
  4. Check the HVAC system: Schedule an annual maintenance check-up for your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system to ensure it’s running efficiently and safely.
  5. Clean or replace air filters: Change the air filters in your HVAC system to improve indoor air quality and keep your system running smoothly.
  6. Service your lawn mower: Sharpen the blades, change the oil and spark plugs, and check the air filter to make sure your lawn mower is ready for the upcoming season.
  7. Clean outdoor spaces: Sweep patios and decks, power wash outdoor furniture, and remove any dead plants or debris from the yard.
  8. Check the sprinkler system: Test the sprinkler system to make sure it’s working properly and adjust the sprinkler heads if necessary.
  9. Inspect the foundation: Check for cracks or other damage to the foundation of your home, and have any issues addressed by a professional.

Spring Window Maintenance

Spring is also a great time to ensure that your windows are functioning properly and looking their best.

Here are some great tips for your spring window maintenance:

  1. Clean the windows: Start by giving your windows a thorough cleaning. Use a window cleaning solution and a squeegee to remove dirt, grime, and streaks from the glass. You can also use a microfiber cloth or newspaper to dry the windows and prevent streaking.
  2. Check for damage: Inspect the windows for any signs of damage, such as cracks or gaps in the frames or glass. If your windows look like they need to be repaired or replaced, please contact us for an estimate!
  3. Lubricate moving parts: Check the window tracks and hinges for any signs of wear or rust. Apply a silicone-based lubricant to these parts to prevent them from sticking and ensure smooth operation.
  4. Seal any gaps: Check around the window frames for any gaps or cracks where air or water could leak in. Use caulk to seal any gaps and prevent drafts and water leaks.
  5. Install or Replace Screens: Install or replace your old window screens to keep out bugs and debris while still allowing fresh air to flow through your home.

Top Advantages of Installing a Patio Door in Denver

Top Advantages of Installing a Patio Door in Denver | New Windows for America

Sliding patio doors have gained in popularity over the past several years. And why not? Their natural light and views from the outside bring natural beauty and views from your outside, within the comfort of the inside of your home. Having a patio door also works well on those days when you want to enjoy a welcome breeze during the warmer days.

The team at New Windows for America can work with you to find the right patio door for your home and your budget. We have many patio door options for you to choose from, including styles, colors, and hardware. The patio door manufacturers that we work with offer doors that are made with superior construction and durability, which are perfect for a lively home and a lovely view.

Here are a couple of advantages of having a patio door:

Natural Light & Space Efficiency

Installing a patio door can take the place of old windows, or even a solid wall, allowing natural light to flood into your home creating an inviting and airy environment. The floor-to-ceiling view brings in the sunlight, views and fresh air are at your disposal 365 days a year! Sliding doors can save space in your home and make it seem larger than it really is. Using a patio door is so easy as it simply slides effortlessly open to access the outdoors without taking up valuable space.

Ventilation & Fresh Air into Your Home

On those warmer days, having the patio door fully open, halfway open, or even slightly open allows for fresh air and circulation. This could be especially beneficial on those warmer Colorado spring days when the fresh breeze can air out your stuffy home. The space of a patio door is big enough to allow for large surges of air to come into the home, cooling the home which could reduce your need for air conditioning on some days. Improving the air quality, smell and feel of fresh air in the house can make a world of difference in your home.

Easy of Access & Traffic Flow

As the sliding doors are easily opened to the side, you can easily access your backyard or patio. Because they don’t swing open, they won’t interfere with furniture or the entryway. This is especially convenient for get-togethers with family and friends, as it allows for greater foot traffic to and from the house.

Patio Doors offer Safety & Security

Most patio doors have optimum security, with some of our patio door options having keyed locksets that offer greater security and peace of mind when away. Dual point stainless steel mortise lock ensures ultimate security by engaging in multiple areas. Some of our patio doors offer a two-position toe lock which permits the door to be locked in an open airflow position or adds extra secure locking.

Patio Doors Easy to Maintain

Patio doors have an effortless operation as they glide on a monorail system for graceful operation making opening the patio door a smooth and quiet process. They are relatively low in maintenance and easy to clean. Sliding doors are a great and affordable way to add functionality to your home.

Sliding Doors offer Increased Energy Efficiency

Many of our patio door options are available in dual or triple-paned configurations with tempered glass for ultimate energy performance while maximizing safety. Some of our patio doors have multiple rows of weatherstripping combined with fully interlocking panels to keep your home secure and free from drafts or leaks. Be sure to ask about our Energy Star-rated Patio Doors!

Blinds Between the Glass

Some patio door options also have blinds between the glass. With this option, you can take control of privacy, security, and daylight. Fingertip adjustment effortlessly operates tilt, raise, and lower operations. Sturdy aluminum blinds are sealed between two panes of Low-E tempered glass. These blinds are covered by a 10-year warranty against material and operational defects.

Increased Home Value

Whether you need replacement windows or a sliding patio door, these upgrades will help add more value to your home, as they can become a primary selling point.

Other Options

Depending on the style of a patio door, there are other options you can consider such as a patio screen door. Having a patio screen door installed can help make your home safer, as well as protect your home from insects. Another add-on option is installing a pet insert on your patio door. Your pet will absolutely appreciate the easy access, and as a pet owner, you will also appreciate that you don’t have to open and close the door every time your pet needs come and go. The pet inserts come in different sizes, allowing you to find the best option for your pet.

Advantages of Sliding Windows

Advantages of Sliding Windows | New Windows for America

A popular window style in residential homes is sliding windows. These windows have many advantages and work well with almost any space. Sliding windows typically have two or more sashes, opening left and right, or horizontally, along grooves in the frame. Some windows have a third sash as a fixed picture window, added between two sliding windows to really open the views, letting additional light in.

Single Slider Windows

Single slider windows are a more simplified version of the double slider as you slide the windows horizontally to open and close. These windows are a cost-effective solution, highly secure, and easy to clean and maintain, making these windows a practical option for many homeowners.

Double Slider Windows

These windows are common in most homes as they are easy to use and open both sides of the window allowing increased airflow into the home. Double slider windows are also low maintenance, simple to use, and easy to clean.

Benefits of Sliding Windows

Sliding windows can benefit your home in many ways. Customizing the window options with hardware finishes, insulating options, type of glass, interior and exterior colors, decorative grids, etc., are just some of the many options you can choose from.

Expansive Views

Choosing sliding windows is ideal for spaces that have a width greater than the height, optimizing natural light and outdoor views. This also reduces the need for artificial light and could cut down on utility costs.

Energy Efficient

    As there aren’t many moving parts in sliding windows, it allows them to close easily and securely. Having securely closed windows will prevent heat or cold air escape, and can reduce energy usage at home saving you money over time from your energy bills. Sliding windows also inhibit water, air filtration, and noise from the outside.


    Most slider windows open fully to let in the fresh air while providing plenty of ventilation as the windows can both be open at the same time.

    Easy to Operate

    Both sashes effortlessly open horizontally as they slide back and forth, making opening the windows easier to operate. This is extremely helpful for seniors or people with limited mobility living within the house. Slider windows are a great option for difficult-to-reach places such as over the kitchen sink, as they are easy to use.

    Cleaning windows

    Window panels can lift out of the grooves, making them extremely easy to clean on both sides.

    Low Maintenance

    As sliding windows typically have fewer parts than conventional windows, which makes them low maintenance, more durable, and cost-effective for homeowners.

    How to use Viva Magenta – the 2023 Pantone Color of the Year

    2023 Pantone Color of the Year | Viva Magenta | New Windows for America

    Every year Pantone releases the color of the year – and this year it is bright, bold, and full of life! The Pantone Color of the Year for 2023 is Viva Magenta! We have some clever ways that you can incorporate this vibrant color into your home!

    First, let’s talk about Viva Magenta 18-1750!

    Viva Magenta 18-1750 descends from the red family, signaling strength, fearlessness, and a joyous celebration! This color exudes empowerment, encouraging experimentation and making a statement. The color was selected by humans in the fashion and design industry, then interpreted by an AI tool called Midjourney to create, as Pantone describes it an “endless new ecosystem to be explored, called ‘the Magentaverse.’” This color is aptly defined by Pantone as “an unconventional shade for an unconventional time.”

    Here are 5 ways you can use Viva Magenta in your home

    Paint an Accent Wall

    Is there a wall in your home that needs a little attention? Bring some life to the space by painting Viva Magenta on a small wall, powder room, or hallway. Pair the new bold paint with neutral accessories, and black framed wall hangings to bring some interest to the space!

    Add Some Pizazz to your Kitchen

    The new color hails from the red family which has been shown that this color makes you hungry and impulsive. Consider adding a splash of Viva Magenta to your accessories with flowers, bar stools, dish towels, napkins, or dinnerware. These pops of color are an easy and somewhat inexpensive feat. If you are feeling very bold, you could also paint this warm hue as an accent wall, or even your kitchen cabinets!

    Find Viva Magenta in Wall Art

    Add some interest to a space by finding some wall art that has hints of Viva Magenta, and make this a focal point to your entry, powder room, or living spaces.

    Add Drama to Your Floor or in an Accent Chair

    Look for Viva Magenta in an oversized rug, or take the plunge and commit to a bright carpet for some underfoot luxury! Adding a luxurious velvet armchair in the new vivacious color can give your bedroom the most glamorous and cozy seat in the house!

    Say Hello to Your Front Door!    

    A red door makes a bold statement, welcoming one and all. Compliment the confidence with bright white trim and black windows and frames for a sophisticated look. Create the perfect outdoor scene by accessorizing your front entry with magenta throw pillows on your patio chairs, adding some beautiful fuchsia flowers and some greenery to complement the bold look.

    As you contemplate all the ways you can incorporate Pantone’s Color of the Year in your home, perhaps your windows, siding, and doors also need a refresh. The team at New Windows for America is ready to help you get a fresh look in your home! We have the experience, knowledge, and the local company you want to use for your interior and exterior updates, and can help you with choosing the most beautiful, energy-efficient windows and doors.

    The Biggest Home Remodeling Trends of 2023

    Biggest Home Remodeling Trends of 2023 | Denver Replacement Windows

    As we move into the new year with hopes for good health, joy, and happiness, it also gives us a sense of renewal for our home bringing us thoughts of updates and renovations. The new year brings renewed enthusiasm for creating a home with optimistic vibes that are full of colors, patterns, and textures. One of the many benefits of owning your own home is that you can make the change you want to make it feel like your own. This year might be the year that you renovate your main bathroom, or perhaps a new paint color, or if you are feeling very ambitious, perhaps a kitchen renovation. It has become quite important for homeowners to look for affordable as well as green and sustainable options when choosing their home renovation projects.

    According to the experts, here are some of the top home remodeling trends for 2023:

    Updating Kitchens with your Personal Design Style

    Updating your kitchen delivers high returns on your investment while at the same time improving the look and function of the space. Some kitchen trends include more calming tones and warm neutrals. Being that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and where people gather, it is important to make this important room feel calm and create a sense of relaxation. Using biophilic materials such as tactile woods and dynamic composites, using neutrals, matte finishes, and earth tones will complement natural raw materials. Kitchen islands are still trending along with beverage centers and wine fridges.

    Calm and Colorful Bathrooms

    After a long day, you deserve to have a bathroom where you can unwind, have an escape to relaxation, and have your own personal serene, spa-like sanctuary. Incorporating natural stones and woods, and green hues give the sense of bringing calm feelings of bringing the outdoors in. Including a personal spa is another on-trend for 2023, creating a sensory experience with colorful lights and monochromatic metal gradients.

    Large Windows & Doors

    A continuing trend of bringing the indoors outside and vice versa is still very popular. Colorado homeowners have a deep connection to the outdoors. Adding windows to multiple walls, installing floor-to-ceiling windows, large-scale windows, or replacing single doors with double doors is a beautiful way to let more natural light in, enhancing the views from your living spaces. Retractable screen doors, large patio space, and oversized or stacking patio doors are also growing trends.

    Warm and Soft Palettes

    Predicted to be trending in 2023 are warm brown and beige tones adding a calmer and more relaxing atmosphere to your home. Try incorporating an accent wall to add dimensions to your living spaces. Maybe another surprising trend is the use of wallpaper. Using wallpaper with a versatile amber tone can be used for both traditional and contemporary styles. Wallpapers with bold colors and patterns help to visually lengthen and widen the footprint of a room. Compliment these warm tones with deep wood tone accessories, or white, beige, or terracotta furniture.

    Curve Trends

    Carrying over from 2022 trends, the curve trend continues to gain popularity. Use the curved trend in your kitchen island, using curved sofas and chairs or even a curved bar softens and makes the space more inviting, as well as maximizing the space.

    Home Offices

    The trend of people working from home on a regular basis continues to grow. Having a dedicated, yet comfortable and functional home office space allows people to work outside of standard 9-5 jobs. Adding custom built-in cabinets to help with organization efforts can also help with the storage issue without overwhelming the style of the room. There is a specific trend of creating sheds, converting garages, and making-over home office spaces to make working from home more enjoyable and efficient.

    Energy Updates

    With utility and energy bills on the rise, homeowners are opting for better insulation, energy-efficient windows, smart thermometers, and even solar panels. With the Inflation Reduction Act passing in August 2022, legislation is offering tax credits and other incentives for Americans to go green.

    Dramatic Exterior Palettes

    Bright white siding contrasted with black windows and trim create an amazing graphic curb appeal and is still a very popular trend in 2023. There is a shift in using darker siding colors in blues, green, and warm grays while complimented with lighter windows and trim. A pop of color for the front door is a fun way to also add interest to the home. For specific window and door design trends, click here to read more.

    Understanding Your Window Performance

    Understanding your window performance | Replacement Windows Denver | New Windows for America

    It is important to understand the energy performance ratings of your windows and doors as it relates to their potential for gaining and losing heat. The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) provides information enabling homeowners to accurately compare window performance. Here is a summary of what gets measured and why.


    U-Factor measures how well a window is insulated and prevents heat from escaping. While the U-Factor can take any value, typically windows range from 0.20 to 1.20. The lower the U-Factor, the better the window insulates. The lower the U-factor, the greater the window’s resistance to heat flow and the better its insulating value. U-value measures the rate of heat transfer through glass (glazing). U-values, depending on climatic conditions.

    Solar Heat Gain Coefficient

    Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) measures how well a window blocks heat from sunlight. It can range in value from 0 to 1. The lower the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient, the lower the level of visible light that can affect the brightness of a room’s interior, and the less solar heat the window lets in. The sun can provide free heat in the winter, but lead to overheating in warmer conditions. Selecting different types of Low E glass coatings allows for balancing Solar Heat Gain appropriately for each individual home. Certain products use spectrally selective glass that blocks infrared light while still allowing high levels of visible light—so you can daylight your home while maintaining comfortable temperatures.


    Visible Light External Reflectance or VLR refers to the percentage of visible light that is reflected externally by the glass as detected by the human eye. The higher the VLR, the lighter your windows allow in your home.

    Air Leakage

    Air leakage is a natural part of all operating windows. It is the rate of air movement around a window, door, or skylight in the presence of a specific pressure difference across it. The lower the number, the less air flows through the window when it is closed and locked.  Air leakage also depends on the proper installation of a window, which is assumed in all ratings.

    Save Money, and Use Less Energy

    Installing ENERGY-STAR® qualified windows and doors lowers energy bills and saves you money. Replacing old windows with ENERGY-STAR® certified windows lowers household energy bills by an average of 12 percent nationwide. Lower energy consumption also reduces greenhouse gas emissions from power plants and homes. Can you feel your carbon footprint shrinking?

    Shop for Windows that Perform Best for Your House

    Window orientation and window direction are important factors to enhance your savings and can increase the energy efficiency of your home, as well as make it more comfortable to live in. The orientation of the windows in your home can affect the lighting of the rooms resulting in electricity and heating consumption. For example, south-facing windows allow plenty of light into the room as the sun tracks mostly in the southern half of the sky. A north-facing window typically receives less natural light, so choosing the right size and high-performance glass can make a huge difference.

    Ask the Team at New Windows for America about how our windows can be specified with high-performance glass to meet ENERGY-STAR® criteria for our specific climate zone here in Colorado.

    Window, Door, and Interior Design Trends to Look for in 2023

    Window, Door, and Interior Design Trends to Look for in 2023

    The new year is a great time to start fresh and evaluate your home’s needs and refresh your living spaces. The latest interior design trends have been leaning toward creating inviting, unique and comfortable spaces. 2023 is no different and furthers some of the trends we have noticed in the past couple of years. If you want to update your home, here are some trends to look forward to in 2023.

    Black Window Frames

    One of the simplest ways to get in on the latest trend of dark interior design is to choose a dark interior window frame. Although a bold black color can make some people nervous, this color is becoming more of a new neutral adding a sophisticated pop of color to your home. Black frames are versatile, complementing most interior designs, and make a subtle statement to your home.

    Go Natural and Get in Touch with Nature

    Make your house feel more vibrant and alive, and bring the outside in by incorporating houseplants, and greenery throughout your home. Known as the biophilic trend, it’s a way to create a sense of harmony between your home and the world outside, and is on track to be one of the biggest interior design trends of 2023.

    You can also accomplish this by installing large picture windows, taking advantage of the outdoors, and seemingly bringing the indoors with light and views of the outside. Another option would be to create an indoor-outdoor connection by installing sliding doors to further your living space beyond your living room. Use your windows to breathe in the fresh air, listen to the sounds of nature, and boost your mood by letting the daylight in.

    Art Deco Style

    Celebrate the art deco trend and a touch of opulence by incorporating different window shapes into your home with maximalist shapes and geometrics. The Art Deco Glamour Trend is different than the traditional art deco as it brings a little more of the rich colors, bold geometry, and notable architectural shapes and elements. Bring eye-catching window shapes to match the architectural style of your home, use large art deco-style mirrors to add light to the room, and then accessorize with vases, frames, and home décor that includes touches of gold and elegance.

    Vintage Design

    Honor your home’s architectural design by matching the windows to your house’s style and roots. Bay and bow windows typically lend themselves to a craftsman or ranch-style home, whereas a Victorian-style home pairs well with single or double-hung windows. You can further complement your home’s design by using family heirlooms, and vintage décor from antique or thrift stores, and restoring their natural design spaces instead of doing a complete renovation job.
