    "The guys at Comer construction are overly nice and informative. They not only did the job but also added some very nice details along the way. I have recommended them to all of my friends and we plan on having more work done by them in the future. These guys made sure that you felt completely included in the entire project and sometime left you feeling like "wow how did they do that"!"

    "If I could give 6 stars, I would! I bought a Larson Platinum storm door from Lowes and tried to install it myself, but found that the woodwork around my old storm door was curved and the new door required a flat surface and I was worried there was more water damage than I could see. There was also caulking that was old and cracking. Sean answered our call and asked for photos of the the doorway & issues. He was able to come down and removed the curved wood & caulking, (luckily I didn't need the whole frame replaced), put new planks up, re-caulked it and installed the new door within 3 hours. And the cost was just a little more than half of what I paid for the door itself. Completely worth it and the installation looks so clean! Sean was very nice and courteous, very knowledgable about the door & installing it. But after he loaded his van back up and was getting ready to leave, a recycling/trash picker stopped by the neighbor's house and the old guy attempted to lift a washer or something into the bed of his pickup truck. Sean could've driven off to get to his next job, but instead he helped the guy out and put it in his truck for him. He didn't have to, but he did. I know that picker really appreciated this helping hand. And that's why I'd give Sean & Mint Contracting 6 stars if I could!"

    "Charles Barnes and Jordan Smith were my two installers. They arrived on time and introduced themselves. They began the installation right away. They laid down tarps to protect my carpet and floors. While installing the windows, they encountered issues with the existing framing. They replaced rotted wood which extended their job by several hours. They made sure all windows functioned well and showed me how to open the side to side windows for cleaning and how to install and remove the screens. They completed the install and cleaned up perfectly. They did a great job. I'm having additonal windows replaced in the spring and hope that Charles and Jordan will be there to install them. I would recommend West Shore to anyone because of the quality of the products and the professionalism of the employees."

Pittsburgh Window Replacement

In the land of three rivers, where homes can date back to 100 years ago or more, renovation, refurbishing, and replacement of various parts of a house are a necessity. Even if you live in a house built after the great wars, the need to service and replace some parts of your home can be, if not a need, a good idea. In Pittsburgh, window replacement is one of the common projects that owners of homes, both old and new, can opt for to make their property more energy-efficient, and in some cases, more visually appealing, as well.

Benefits 
One of the best ways to see the benefits of brand new windows is to have a gander at the drawbacks of older ones. Old windows typically consist of a wooden frame that holds a single piece of glass or multiple pieces of glass in a single layer. This design, though the best available when these windows were produced, has a few flaws. Heat transfer issues are a big concern when dealing with a single layer of glass, as heat can travel readily through it.

Old wood frames are notorious for swelling and contracting because they lack any modern sealant that would protect the wood from moisture. This expanding and contracting over many years can cause gaps between the frame and the wall it is set in as well as between the frame and the glass it holds. This creates loose glass, drafts, and, ultimately, more heat transfer issues. Older windows are also hard to clean and require frequent painting to look good.

New windows solve these problems by using modern sealing materials and techniques, metal and vinyl construction, and multiple paned glass. Today's windows are also much easier to clean by design and often require little-to-no painting to keep up appearances.

In Pittsburgh, window replacement can lead to much less heat transfer, which can in turn lead to lower energy bills in both the winter and summer. Installing new windows will also get rid of uncomfortable drafts and can even reduce the amount of noise that comes in from the outside. In addition to the physical benefits of window replacement, Pittsburgh residents can also raise the market value of their homes by installing new windows, making this project a monetarily beneficial, as well as comfortable, investment.

Pricing
Probably the biggest drawback to installing new windows is the price tag. When compared to other methods of reducing heat transfer around windows (weather stripping, storm windows, etc.), total window replacement costs significantly more in almost every scenario. The benefits of complete replacement, however, are far greater than simply supplementing your old windows. For complete window replacement, Pittsburgh residents should expect to pay at least $5,000 or $6000.

If you happen to have windows that are considered historic, which is more common in an old city like Pittsburgh, you may not want to replace them. In this case, installing storm windows (around $1,800, give or take) is probably the best way to reduce heat transfer without having to alter the existing structure of the house or losing the antique glass.
