Q:  Are products offered by BetterView insured? Do they have warranties?  

A: All windows have lifetime warranties.  Warranties also can be transferred to the next homeowners too, as limited lifetime warranties. Committed to customer satisfaction, we also offer a 5-year labor warranty on all products installed by our staff.


Q: What is the difference between a pressure-treated wooden deck and a composite deck?

A:  Composite materials are impervious to water and don’t need to be maintained or treated in any way. Other considerations include:

  • If you like a true wooden look, we recommend pressure-treated wood.

  • Composite decks also tend to absorb more heat when exposed to sunlight.


Q: What type of sunroom is the most energy efficient?  

A:  When adding a sunroom to your home, customers generally choose between a 3-season room, a 4-season room or a stick-built room.  All offer varying benefits, but the stick-built sunroom is the most energy efficient due to the increased variety of materials that can be used, including better insulated doors and windows.

Q:  What’s the difference between vinyl, wooden and aluminum windows?

A:  Vinyl windows provide a variety of benefits including:

  • Better Insulation:  Unlike aluminum, vinyl does not conduct heat or cold, which can be major sources of wasted heating and cooling energy.  It also doesn’t swell or shrink like wooden materials.

  • Better Maintenance:  Vinyl doesn’t show scratches and doesn’t need to be painted unlike aluminum or wooden windows.


Q:  What is a U-Factor?  What should I look for?

A: The U-factor is a standard measure of heat transfer through an entire window unit. U-factors or U-values were developed by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) at the request of the U.S. Department of Energy and the Federal Trade Commission. Look for low U-factors. The lower the U-factor, the better the window’s insulating ability.


Q: What is the R-factor? What should I look for?

A: The R-factor indicates the resistance to heat flow through a window.  R-factors are the reciprocal of U-factors. The higher the R-factor, the better the energy efficiency.  BetterView offers a wide range of windows with varying R-factors to meet your individual preferences.
