What is an R-Value?

   One of the first things a homeowner should inquire about when considering options for windows is the R-value. The R-value is an specified number that comes from a standard testing procedure to evaluate a material's "resistance to conductive heat transfer". The greater the R-value, the greater a window's resistance to conductive heat transfer.

   R-value is the standard measurement of thermal efficiency. The greater the R-value, the larger the insulating qualities. This number shows how likely the window is to lose heat. An R-value of 1 is considered inefficient, while an R-value of 2 or greater is normal for insulating glass. FAS Windows and Doors offers with a broad range of products with R-values that can satisfy your thermal efficiency needs.

   It's important to keep your environment in mind while scoping out R-values. Educating yourself about your environment and your personal window or door needs is the greatest way to ensure that you get what you want during the replacement or upgrading process.

From Our Customers

We had a bad experience with a previous door installer/retailer. Then we heard good things on the radio about FAS so we went to see them in their warehouse and we were impressed with both the product and the people. We bought two sets of French doors and had them installed. We were also able to customize our lock and glass selection, as well as the decorative treatment of the doors and it worked very well. Their sales rep was very personable. He called in response to our call to set up a time and he arrived on time. He was very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic, and we very much enjoyed the opportunity to talk to him. He was certainly the first contact in our home that helped convince us to try them out.

Their installation team was very good and very professional. They came out, measured, and they showed up with the doors and the doors fit, which was nice. They had the materials they needed and they cleaned up afterwards. All in all, we were very pleased with the experience. They did a great job. FAS has a higher price but there was great value. Their quality’s terrific. They did a great follow-up as well, after the work was done. They called and verified if we were satisfied with the work, up to the permit inspection. They took care of taking off the labels and so forth, which were required to be let down for the permit.
