Replacement Windows Protecting Against UV Rays | Minneapolis St Paul MN

Ultra violet rays can be very damaging to both people and their property. While we all have heard of the effects of UV rays on our skin, their effects on our carpet and furniture can be just as bad. If you have ever seen a floor that received direct sunlight year after year through an unprotected window, you will immediately notice how faded, warped and blistered it appears. Even pictures hanging on walls that receive indirect light will fade and develop a shadow on the wall that will not go away.

You might expect to see these quirks in an older home, but any newer home with decent UV protected windows will stop these mishaps right in their tracks. Today’s windows are designed to filter out as much as 75% of the harmful UV rays flooding into your home. This will protect the floors and furniture, and possibly even the people in it.

UV rays serve a purpose, but not directly on us. They might make the plants grow larger, but receiving direct UV rays will always cause people and their property harm. Using replacement windows to filter out harmful UV rays should be a number one priority for anyone considering replacing their windows.

There are several ways to remove these rays, and by talking with one of our trained representatives, he will be able to help you sort through the reams of paperwork in order to narrow down your search for the perfect window. Depending on what you are looking for, Window Outfitters of Minneapolis has what you need. We have an extensive selection of windows from Pella, Marvin and Weather Shield, 3 of the most trusted names in the business.

So give us a call, and let’s figure out how to get your windows replaced in a timely and affordable manner. 952-746-6661
