As part of the building process, future homeowners meet with Charlotte Badger, the in-house Design Coordinator,

 to talk through their selections from the exterior siding to bathroom fixtures, flooring and paint colors, as well as more significant add-ons such as three season porches, customized bathrooms and kitchens, and even pet washing stations. This personalized consultation allows Charlotte to understand the homeowner’s desires and spatial needs, and to tailor their process to their personal preferences whether it is a focus on entertaining, family gathering spaces, additional bedrooms, or an in-home office.”Courtesy of Hillside

Why your windows SHOULD be Film-y.

Window Film has many MANY benefits all year round.

An extra layer of UV protection for your home and your family.

One fantastic feature that window film will give your home, is adding an extra layer that helps block glare and keeps ultraviolet rays out. Over time, UVrays can fade furniture and flooring. And don’t forget about your artwork! A dual reflective window film is designed to prevent this. Films block out up to 99% of damaging UV rays,(yep! 99% !!!!!!!) protecting you and your family, as well as preventing your furnishings from fading. Even better, it does all this without degrading your exterior views, so it is virtually unnoticeable.It’s magical!

 

 

Reduce glare.

Dual reflective window films will reduce glare while at the same time blocking UV rays that are trying to get through your windows. Improve the visibility of your TV and device screens by reducing glare, and decrease the need for artificial lighting by allowing more natural light in. Glare causes eye fatigue and lower productivity. Relying on artificial lighting, not only sucks the energy out of human SO FAST, that soon, you’ll only have a husk of what once was, but drives up your energy bills. Film allows light in but not the glare, helping to maintain an “open” feeling. Ahhhhhhhhh, that’s better!

 

 

Your Home Will Be MORE Energy Efficient.

Architectural window films keep out up to 86% of the Sun’s heat, dramatically lowering your energy costs in the HOT Summer months.

Everybody knows that glass is a very poor form of energy insulation. What you may not know though is that U.S. Department Of Energy estimates that 15% of the average home’s wall space is glass. 75% of energy loss in a house is lost through the windows. So yes, your hard earned dough, is going OUT THE WINDOW!

It’s not hard to see that this is a major inefficiency.

By adding energy efficient window film to your windows, it is possible to save up to 50% on your home’s heating and cooling costs. VACATION HERE WE COME!

Low E (Low emissivity) films are great for cooler weather climates where energy conservation is desired. *Ehem* VERMONT!  The dual reflective window films are also fantastic at blocking solar heat from entering your home.

Have a More Secure Home.

Believe it or not, window film is also an excellent choice for increasing the security and privacy of your home. Do you have that nosey parker, that you simply don’t want to allow to peek through your windows? Privacy window films and decorative window films are fantastic options, as well..

Did you know that window film can also offer your home an extra layer of security and safety? Safety and security window films are films that are optically clear but will help hold shattered glass together, in the event that a window accidentally gets broken. Even more, if somebody from outside is trying to get in your home by breaking a window, the film presents an extra barrier of entry for the intruder, slowing down their entry and increasing the possibilities they will decide it’s not worth it.

We need MORE Protection from the Sun in Winter. Why? The Earth is closer.

The Sun is closer to the Earth during the winter, which means even more exposure to its damaging UV rays. But window film lets you enjoy the natural light and views while protecting your furnishings. Window film also reduces glare, which may be more of a problem in the winter when UV rays reflect upward off of the bright snow.

“UVA rays account for up to 95 percent of UV radiation reaching the Earth’s surface and although they are less intense than UVB, UVA rays are 30 to 50 times more prevalent, and go through glass, making sun protection necessary inside as well as outside.”

There are SO MANY types of window films for many different uses and situations.

Our team is here to learn about your needs, explore all available product options and get you the correct film, for your exact needs and budget.

Schedule today!

Collecting Donations til Dec 14th for COTS!

DONATE this to Committee on Temporary Shelter in Burlington!

We have made it a tradition here at Gordon’s to collect gifts, clothing and other necessities for families in need of shelter during the holidays.


.
We have already started this year! Please donate if you can! Bring your donations to our showroom.


Started in 1982, when a group of concerned community members and organizations first come together to address the needs of the growing homeless population in Burlington.

COTS believe in the value and dignity of every human life.
That housing is a fundamental human right.
That emergency shelter is not the solution to homelessness.”
