Save Energy Keep Cool with Quality Windows and beat this July heat!
It’s July in Virginia and that means intense heat and humidity. You’re likely cranking the AC to keep the sun from heating up your home throughout the day. But keeping the AC on high can get expensive and waste energy. Windows are an integral part of keeping your home energy efficient, especially when it comes to hot summer months. The right windows can stave off general heat and the sun’s rays, keeping your home cool, your energy use minimal, and your expenses low.
Top Dog Home Pro: Roof & Gutter Specialists (here is why):
Here at Top Dog Home Pro, we have come to realize during our time in the exterior remodeling industry that too many companies try to do too many things. In the past, we have offered windows, siding, and door services in addition to our staple – Roofing & Gutters. However, in 2020 during the Covid-19 Pandemic, we shifted our focus to offering the best roofing and gutters services in order to specialize. The forced pivot allowed us to truly provide the utmost service when it came to new roofs, gutters, and gutter guards without stretching ourselves too thin in other areas. So if you happen to have a question regarding siding or windows, we have articles in our education center to help, but for the foreseeable future, our exterior services will be focused on just new gutters and roofs!

A durable window can make a huge difference in long-term energy efficiency. Look for brands that meet ENERGY STAR requirements and then dig a little deeper to find more information about frames, insulation, and locks. Look into potential warranties that come with windows as well, which is a great way to insure your windows are working for you over the years
