Dogwood Tree

You can go to the woods and find the size of a dogwood tree when they are in full bloom. You have to wait until the sap falls which happens in January and February. Note the direction in which the tree is facing for planting. A good rule of thumb is to use a compass for replanting. But wait a minute? What's this got to do with Prestige Enclosures? When you buy our windows you get to see that lovely "Dogwood Tree".

Where's the beef?

That's not always true when purchasing windows. The insulated glass plays the greatest roll when it comes to insulating value. If you see windows that are too beefy this will always show up as an add-on and not as it should appear when the dwelling was built.

Because of so much scamming that is going on know who you are dealing with. So many people (elderly) for example have a "Trust" of their fellow man that they think every one is honest. Know the people that are doing things at your home that are referred by your friend, neighbor, or kin folk that you can feel comfortable about what is being done. Trust is a great word but a persons actions help define that word .

Limited Dollars

Take a room at a time. This proves valueable knowing that everything will be checked. Be sure to check any closets that are on the outside wall. Light fixtures can be a great heat loss in the ceiling.

Looking for fiber cement siding with NO maintenence?

If you love the look of fiber cement siding or Hardie Plank siding as many refer to it but do not want the terrible maintenance that is involved, Prestige Enclosures has the solution!
Cedar Plank Siding by Novik gives you the beautiful look of fiber cement siding but in a solid PVC panel. Our Cedar Plank siding is an injection molded product that is 100% color-thru with UV inhibitors that prevent discoloration. With 25 standard colors, you are sure to find something that fits the look that is ideal for you home. You will never have to paint this product, it is truly maintenance free!
Another added benefit is the lapping of panels. On traditional fiber cement product, the only way to join to panels together is to butt the two panels together causing an area that has to be caulked every few years. Then, it has to be painted every 5 years to keep the finish. With our Cedar Plank Siding, the ends of the panel have been milled down allowing the panel to be lapped like traditional vinyl siding. This creates a water tight, maintenance free covering for your home that will last forever. Please check out the link below and get more information, including pictures of this beautiful siding.

Insulated Siding

One of the newest innovations in the vinyl siding industry is insulated siding. This product, such as our Napco American Essence panel, provides an array of added benefits over a traditional siding panel.
Some of the benefits include increasing the R-Value of the exterior walls 25%. A typical exterior wall surface is 10% wall stud edges - an area left unprotected by conventional in-wall insulation. Insulated siding puts a blanket of insulation over those areas, decreasing thermal transfer, making your home more comfortable. Thus, lowering your power bill.
Another benefit is impact resistance. One of the downfalls of conventional siding is that it is susceptible to cracking or chipping due to sudden impact such as weed eaters or flying rocks from lawn mowers. With the molded insulation laminated to the back of the panel, combined with a thicker premium vinyl siding provides superior impact resistance.
With these two added features, along with a single 7" width and a double 6" width and 14 beautiful colors to chose from, insulated siding is the smart choice.

Warranty Issues

There are companies that hate the word "Warranty". Why? Because they do not want anything to take away from their bottom line of profit. For example, if you have a customer that has not purchased anything in a certain lenght of time ( say 1 year ) that customer would be removed from your customer list. This from their point of view would also deny any warranty issues. Now this customer would start over and all warranties would begin when credit is approved and customer starts purchasing.
