Is your home suffering from outdated windows? Time to update and modernize!
Are you a homeowner living in a vintage house or apartment?
If so, are you tired of your non-functioning, uninsulated, drafty windows? Its time to Update!
Owning an old home can sometimes be challenging. While you love the charm of your vintage home, it can be costly and time-consuming to manage.
Some of the challenges of owning an old home can include:
- Loss of heat and air-conditioning through leaky windows
- Water damage and leaks around window frames
- Difficulty installing and operating bulky storm windows
- Single pane windows are ineffective at reducing outside sound
- Expensive to maintain vintage windows
- Replacing windows can effect original charm and value
Did you know that the average home can lose up to 30% of its heat or air conditioning energy through the windows? SLIPs are designed to maintain the beauty of your original windows, while protecting you from the elements and increasing the insulation of your home. In terms of insulation power, SLIPs are similar to insulated glass conversions. Another key aspect is that SLIPs will ensure your window sash remains fully operable, without any need to open two sets of windows like you get with many types of traditional storm windows.
WINDOWS PAINTED SHUT? BROKEN SASH ROPES?….

HOW MUCH DO SLIPS COST?
If you buy standard casement SLIPs for self install they start at $23/sqft. This square measurement is not the whole window opening but, less actually, rather the square footage of the perimeter of the glass setup. Other options such as low-e glass will run a little higher.
If outfitting your single or double hung windows SLIPs, consider adding in $40 each for operating sash.
When comparing to other options such as complete window replacement, SLIPs bring massive value. Also consider the future maintenance cost that comes with window replacement, such as insulated glass replacement. Get yourself a quote for self install here

I recently added insulated SLIPS over my preexisting wood windows. Wanting to keep the original look to my 1926 building, and by choosing to go with Chosen Wood Windows they were able to do this. I was able to have my end of the hot summer with the slips and it really made the difference in keeping the heat out, and also I had my first winter that made a huge difference in keeping the heat in and most of all my bills showed the savings from my previous years. Glad I chose to go with Chosen Wood Windows, everyone was real accommodating in keeping my original original. Bison Coffee House
The slips which Chosen installed for me earlier this year over original leaded glass casement windows have made the room much more comfortable. The slips are unobtrusive and have made exterior cleaning of the windows a snap.
The SLIPs have made a world of difference in the comfort of the room, without affecting the decor of our old windows, interior and exterior. A great purchase.
Thrilled with the SLIP, it has allowed us to keep the original casement windows and frames with all the old character and charm, while providing solid protection from the elements. I’d highly recommend this option.
Our home has the same look as before, but all windows now open and are energy efficient double pane. If new vinyl windows would have diminished the value of your home, as in our case.
