Hickory, North Carolina homeowners have confidence with the premium products from UWD. Our entry doors, vinyl siding, and replacement windows are engineered to perform in all types of weather. Outdated exterior products can cause the home to lose 25% of energy, which leads to higher utility bills and even drafts. UniShield® exterior products improve the home from the inside out.
As an Energy Star certified product, UniShield® replacement window installation excels at lowering energy bills. When replacing inefficient windows with UniShield®, homeowners can experience savings of over $400 per year on utility bills. UWD is proud to offer some of the most energy efficient replacement windows in Hickory.
The glass packages of UniShield® hold the key to lower utility bills. Argon and krypton gas fill the airspace to increase efficiency and keep the home comfortable. Low-e glazing reduces UV rays from entering the home, which results in fading flooring, carpet, and furniture. Low-e also allows the sun to naturally heat the home in the winter, while in the summer the opposite is true.
UniShield® is available in four energy saving glass packages that pack a punch with indoor comfort. UniShield® Plus is the most popular option. It offers tremendous value with argon gas between dual pane glass and low-e applied to the glass. Window installation is provided by UWD, which ensures correct fit within the frame and reduces drafts.
All UniShield® glass packages are customizable with window styles, decorative glass, and grids. Choose amongst Hickory’s most popular window replacement styles including double hung, garden, bay and bow, picture, and casement. Decorative glass adds zeal to curb appeal with patterns including floral, elongated floral, prairie, and double prairie. Grids add a classic touch to any window while proving extra depth.
The vinyl window frames are one of the star features of UniShield®. This frame material takes care of itself through most of the year. It is not susceptible to issues including rotting, peeling, or flaking. The only care necessary for vinyl frames is cleaning between seasons with a soft cloth and mild cleaning solution.
UniShield® is the prominent window choice in North Carolina for its affordability, craftsmanship, and style. This window replacement is covered under the True Lifetime warranty for quality and performance.
