Top 5 Windows of the World

Posted by Johnny on Oct 27, 2015 10:00:00 AM

The eyes are our windows out to the universe and inward to the soul. Likewise, a home’s windows offer a unique perspective to its exterior view and a fascinating look at the people who inhabit the space within. No other building component has quite the same impact on a home’s curb appeal and livability. Today, manufacturers offer more choices of windows than ever before, with dozens of framing options, security features and insulating alternatives.

As part of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (aka “debt ceiling bill”), Congress has renewed the energy tax credits that had previously expired at the end of 2011. The amounts remain the same — a $500 max deduction with a $200 cap on windows — however the lifetime cap on the credit that previously existed appears to have been removed. Installation costs are still not included, so if the invoice you received does not reflect that, contact the company that performed the work for an updated copy.
