Windows

$1.75—$4.00/sq. ft. cash incentive

Windows play a large part in regulating energy use and costs. ENERGY STAR® qualified high-efficiency windows reduce condensation, decrease drafts and air leaks, and can increase your home’s value and curb appeal. Installing new, tight-fitting windows also helps seal your home against unwanted air intrusion or escape.
