UniShield® Window Replacement: Easy Energy Savings
UniShield® replacement window installation makes it incredibly easy to lower utility bills. With expert installation by UWD, homeowners can feel the difference when upgrading from inefficient window products. UniShield® is certified by Energy Star and offers a savings of over $400 per year on utility bills.
UniShield®’s four available glass packages provide outstanding efficiency. The tier levels create lasting indoor comfort and energy savings for years to come. UniShield® Plus provides exceptional value with dual pane technology, argon gas between the panes, and low-e glazing to reduce UV rays.
For maximized energy savings, consider UniShield® Supreme. This is the ultimate selection for window replacement and includes triple pane glass instead of dual pane. This provides an extra chamber for krypton gas insertion, making this window one of the most energy efficient replacement windows on the market. It also includes low-e application for a comfortable home throughout the season.
Professional window installation maximizes the performance of UniShield®. UWD expertly installs UniShield® into the home for a custom and correct fit. This is essential for blocking out drafts and moisture.
All levels of UniShield® are available in a variety of window styles. Window installation is beneficial for improving curb appeal, and UWD’s window styles include double hung, bay and bow, slider, garden, casement, specialty shapes, and more. The windows frames are made of vinyl and are low maintenance. They only require occasional cleaning between the seasons. The vinyl frames from UWD are engineered with top-quality ingredients, ensuring the window will not warp, peel, or rot.
Additional aesthetic options are available for an even bigger impact on curb appeal. Consider adding decorative glass in floral or prairie patterns. Grid systems are also available, which complements nearly any curb appeal in Franklin.
UniShield® home windows are protected under UWD’s True Lifetime warranty. This warranty protects pieces, parts, installation, craftsmanship, and more.
UniShield® Vinyl Siding: Exceptional Beauty and Value
Affordable yet quality exterior home siding is now available in Franklin, Indiana. Siding replacement makes old exteriors look new again with nearly endless aesthetic options. UniShield® offers top value by combining quality materials with timeless beauty and energy savings.
Every UniShield® panel appears handcrafted to replicate real oak. The wood grain patterns give the authentic appearance of real wood without maintenance. UniShield® home siding does not require sanding, staining, or painting. The vinyl colors remain vibrant for years as outlined in our 20-year color warranty.
To add unique flair to curb appeal, consider vinyl scallops, vinyl shakes, and soffit. These upgrades are powerful for providing curb appeal that’s suited for HGTV. Highlight window gables, eave edges, and make your home stand out on the block. For a home that boasts fine details and craftsmanship, consider Trimworks accessories that highlight windows, entryways, vertical columns, and more.
UniShield® siding installation is completed by the insured team at UWD. The installers keep the siding lying flat against the home so it does not warp or buckle. Warped siding is unsightly but it also allows moisture to get behind the panels—which may result in mold or mildew growth. This exterior can also withstand winds of up to Category 5 hurricane levels.
Vinyl exterior is known for its beauty, but UniShield® also increases indoor comfort. Our Fullback insulated underlayment adds insulation to the exterior and blocks out continuous airflow caused by gapping. This airflow can make the home less comfortable and potentially increase utility bills. Our underlayment is 500% more effective at reducing vapor flow and resists impact 500% better than conventional siding.
For maximized energy savings, combine Fullback insulated underlayment and Universal Insulated Fan-fold Housewrap. This housewrap is essential to blocking heat transfer down to the wood studs. Its R-Value is astounding, coming in at 1600% higher than fabric housewraps.
UniShield® exterior is covered under UWD’s True Lifetime warranty, including pieces, parts, installation, craftsmanship, and more.
High Quality Replacement Entry Doors in Franklin
Old front doors drag down curb appeal and lose energy. By upgrading with fiberglass or steel entry doors, homeowners will find their curb appeal and home performance quickly transformed. UWD engineers every door with quality products, resulting in a durable door that lasts for decades.
UWD’s fiberglass door products are engineered with a reinforced skin. The skin is resistant to dents, dings, and scratches. Fiberglass is a low maintenance material that is designed to look like real wood. It doesn’t require sanding, staining, or painting and comes in a variety of paint colors and wood stains.
UniShield® door installation is customizable from top to bottom. Homeowners may order their door primed and apply their own paint or wood stain at home. Dozens of glass designs, shapes, and sizes are available for an instant facelift. Choose from various patterns including geometric and floral, with privacy glass increasing natural light.
Our entry doors include a polyurethane foam core for extra energy savings. We include high quality weatherstripping to block out drafts while an adjustable threshold seals out moisture.
