If you’re looking to replace the windows in your Kansas City area home, make sure you know your facts. You can go one of two ways; pocket replacement windows or full replacement windows. The industry-specific terminology can be confusing, so the All-Weather Window, Doors & Siding experts will break it down for you.
First of all, most companies do not offer full frames because it costs them additional work. But, at All-Weather, you can choose from both styles or mix and match in different areas of your home. This could be a great way to spend top dollars on the windows you’ll see the most, and save on other, less prominent windows.
Pocket Insert Windows
A pocket window is manufactured to fit inside an existing window frame already installed in your house. These are very popular because they don’t require a lot of intensive work inside or outside your home, they tend to be less expensive, and they can be installed in 1-2 days. One drawback is that you lose some window space because the pocket windows have a frame of their own, which must fit in the existing frame shrinking the overall glass dimensions in the process.
Full Frame Windows
Full frame windows require more work on your installer’s part. These require new wood or vinyl framing on the inside and outside of your home before the window can even be installed, which means more labor, which of course means they are more expensive. But, full frame replacement windows allow you more glass space, which means more light.
Whichever replacement window option you choose All-Weather carries the materials you need. And you can rest assured we will walk you through the entire process.

Double-Active French Doors
Double-active French doors are comprised of two doors that both either swing in, or swing out. This type of patio door is a traditional style that adds a touch of elegance to your home. The lattice detailing adds character that looks beautiful in a classic, or even a modern setting.
Hinged Patio Doors
A hinged patio door means that the door swings in or out at it’s hinges. Our hinged patio doors come with either one, two, or three panel configurations. The classic all-glass look allows you to take in more of your outside surroundings from the comfort of your home. This traditional look is low maintenance and easy to clean.
Gliding Patio Doors
Gliding patio doors consist of two panels. Usually one panel is stationary, while the other glides on ball-bearing rollers to open and close. Our gliding doors provide more of a contemporary look. They are low maintenance with vinyl surfaces inside and out.

When replacing your windows, you will be doing a lot more for your home than just updating its style. New windows can actually save you money in several ways. Here’s an idea of what you can expect when you install new replacement windows from All-Weather Windows, Doors & Siding.
NEW WINDOWS HELP TO LOWER ENERGY BILLS
Old windows really start to show their age when your energy bills start hiking up. Uneven frames, cracked glass, and broken seals can all leave you with a drafty home that is literally sucking money from your wallet. By replacing them with new energy efficient windows though, you can start saving more on your energy bills. Older homes with leaky single pane windows can expect to see a 20-25% savings, and newer homes can expect to see around 10-15% savings.
This number could be greater if your existing windows were not installed properly when the home was built. Today’s energy-smart windows will also have Low E glass options that will actually reflect heat out of your home in the Summer, and keep it in your home in the Winter, keeping the electric and gas bills down. Using Low E glass will also block the harmful UV from the sun’s rays that causes expensive damage by fading flooring, window treatments, and household furnishings.
The year was 1985. Kim and Oanh Blake found themselves venturing into what was then a small store called All-Weather Window and Door to repair a torn patio screen. This Mission store with the iconic yellow umbrella was full of bicycles, treasure chests, and other miscellaneous goodies. “Kim and I did not know if it was a window and door store when we walked in,” Oanh recalls.
Upon striking up a conversation with the owner Roger, Kim and Oanh discovered that he was looking to sell the business. Kim had some experience working in the industry part-time while he attended college. Come February of 1996, Kim and Oanh were officially the new owners of the yellow umbrella window and door company.
With spring right around the corner in Kansas City, it’s time to get windows prepped and ready for a summer of use. To maximize the life of your windows and your enjoyment of the beautiful weather, follow these simple steps:
1) Wash exteriors thoroughly from top to bottom. A winter’s worth of grime will cut down on your exposure to the sunlight. Be sure to wash the sash and window casing as well. To wash like a pro, take it from Brent Weingard, owner of Expert Window Cleaners in New York and avoid the newspaper, spray cleaners, and rubbing. He says “You’re just moving dirt around from one spot to another and putting a static charge on the glass, which attracts dust and dirt.” To find out how to get a spotless exterior wash, read Brent’s step by step instructions:http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/how-to/intro/0,,20364019,00.html
