FAQ

You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers

WHY WINDOWSKINS?

WHY CHOOSE WINDOWSKINS? instead of new double-pane windows?

Although double-pane windows are a more efficient insulator than WindowSkins®, their high cost makes them an unaffordable solution for many property owners. This is even more true for owners of homes with historically significant architecture. The return on investment for double-pane windows is over 35 years and often even higher.

At only 15% of the comparable cost, WindowSkinsTM are affordable, deliver value, improve comfort immediately and with an estimated return on investment of between three and five years remain a truly viable alternative.
