What Are Energy Efficient Windows?
Window materials and options have changed a lot over the years as energy codes have become more strict, and as utility rates have climbed. Generically, they are white vinyl double pane windows, usually with a low-e (low emissivity) coating that will help control heat flow in and out of the home. Be aware that there are regional differences and climate zones that help determine what would be a good product for your area. This is best shown as the Energy Star Map. Here in California, the minimum required energy rating is called the Title 24 Section 6 requirement. Most window manufacturers’ meet this criteria because it is pretty easy to achieve these minimum ratings. A savvy dual pane window consumer would be wise to find a window that exceeds these rating for the maximum energy savings.
What Are New Construction Windows
These are most often what a new home builder installs in new residential developments. Often these are ordered as “stock” sizes and are made in bulk, and are installed over the framing and moisture barrier before the final exterior of the home. These windows and doors are typically the least expensive brands and series because builders are selling a home, and the windows are just one piece of a larger home. Often they only carry a one-year warranty as that is all a new home builder needs to have. Typically they are specified with the minimum required energy ratings (Like Title 24) and are built to be a low-cost as possible. Unfortunately, homeowners who have been in a new home after 15 to 20 years will experience numerous problems ranging from difficult operation, locking, seal-failure, and other issues. There has been a tremendous surge in replacing windows in homes less than 20 years old in Sacramento as these cheap vinyl windows are showing their age. Some local manufacturers here in the Sacramento area focus on this segment and produce low-priced windows for the builder market. Homeowners seeking to fix problems should look at quality replacement windows, not the low budget builder-grade windows as they would not really be getting anything better.

I am in escrow now and the windows are visible installed improperly. Ed sent out Darrell to give me an estimate. It was a cool experience. I learned so much about the house and although I am not choosing to get new windows installed. I will definitely call back if I need windows or doors installed in the future. I got an honest estimate and lots of tips for home improvement. I would recommend this company to anyone. Thank you Darrell!
I had all my windows, patio door, front door, side garage door, and siding relaced by Good News Home Improvements. My home is 30 years old. It had all the orginal windows and t-111 siding that was in very bad condition. Lon was very helpful on helping me decide what new siding to put on my house. I chose LP Smartsiding. My wife and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Our home looks beautiful. The work crew were very polite, and worked very hard. They did an excellent job. I highly recommend them for any window and siding replacement. They were very competitive with there pricing. The inspector even told me that the work was very well done.
I was looking for a window contractor to install new dual pane windows for my townhouse I bought in 2015. My windows were 34 years old. As luck would have it, Brower Mechanical and Good News Home Improvements work hand in hand when you request an energy assessment on your home.
Good News HI gave me a really good estimate that included a new construction install on a small entry window and the patio door. I had 9 windows installed and a patio door. I like the Amerimax windows better than the Milgard, etc. that the other companies are using.
The installers were Tony, Gary, Victor and Zach. They were such hard workers and very thorough.
After my windows were installed, I had Good News HI install two inch wood blinds on my windows and vertical blinds with fabric on my patio door. The installers were Ed Holliday (the owner) and Roger.
I've recommended this company to my friends and neighbors. They're very professional and did an outstanding installation job.
Needless to say, I'm extremely happy with my new windows and blinds.
Best Company Ever,
I had almost all my windows replaced in my house in February.
I got several quotes from a few companies and many that came in and wasted my time with nonsense and ridiculous quotes.
I got Ed's (Good News) card as a referral and decided to give them a chance.
Ed came and listened to what I wanted, didn't try to sell me more and didn't push, he was honest and nice and the quote was exactly what I was expecting, fair and detailed.
we booked the job and within 3 weeks got our new windows installed.
the crew was amazing, did a great job and worked hard and fast (in the rain).
they were polite and communicated all the details needed as the job went on.
Ed, I want to really thank you for a job very well done and I will and do recommend this company to anyone that is even considering a window project, give Ed a call....
Top notch professional company! Working with Lon was great, he was patient, answered all my questions and treated this job as if it was his own home. They replaced my windows and siding with ease. Price was good if not lower than competitors after getting 4 bids. Very happy with the whole experience and definitely recommend them!
I'm so surprised how long it's taken me to leave a review for Good News Home Improvements. I've been using them for years for our window I stalls on different projects and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Their prices are fair and their service from the office staff to install crews are out of this world good, honest and top notch. Thanks for always taking care of our homes.
Highly ethical window and siding installation company. These folks are incredibly honest, and very knowledgeable about their products. They have great looking installations all over the Sacramento region.
Good News Home Improvements provides great customer service. I had some new windows installed by Good News and the crew that showed up was punctual, courteous, cleanly, professional and quite entertaining. I would use Good News Home Improvements again and again! Thanks for a job well done.
From the beginning Brian in sales was incredible and worked with us on our new house and what windows to pick. We had no answers for him and he was patient and worked with us on quality and cost to get us what we wanted. Jenny who worked with me on coordinating the installation was so nice and easy to work with too. She responded right away and made it such a smooth process. Then Brian and Travis installed our windows and doors and did an amazing job on the windows and doors and also working around our four chaotic dogs. They cleaned everything up at the end of the first day and it doesn't even look like all this work was done! Overall it was just an amazing experience and we would recommend this team to anyone. By far the best home improvement experience from start to finish.
Wow!! We just had the first of a three day installation done for windows and French doors, and I'm so very impressed with the service and the team (Roger, Brian and Mike) that came out to do the work! From the consultation estimate to the installation, they were nothing less than professional, polite and thorough!! So far, I love my windows (I'm sure I will once they're completed as well)! Nothing but love for Good News, and Brower (who referred them), and their awesome team, who go out in the ungodly heat to get it done!! Seriously, if you're looking to have windows/doors installed/replaced, whatever, this company is top notch!! Good News, you've got some great employees that reflect on your company... Total pleasure to work with! Today... another day, another stellar hard-working team member, Rommell! Good News, you've got a great team who represents you well!!
I would like to thank good news for doing such a good job on my windows. I like how the salesman understood we wanted time to think about it. I know sometimes salesman get real pushy (annoying) but not these guys! It's been over 1 year and the only problem I had was the window locked and got stuck. They immediately set me up with the warranty people and got it taken care of. I really value the honesty and integrity of Ed. They really worked out the best deal for me. Out of 3 bids they were my choice! Thank you
We received a consultation from Brian at Good News. He followed up with us regularly and made the window process a very calm and educational one. There was no high pressure and he felt like he genuinely cared that we end up with a product we were happy with. We ended up going with another company based on price because we had very specific needs on the window we wanted and the larger company could get a better price and provided equally excellent customer service. I do believe if we wanted the same window that is made specifically for GNHI - which is an excellent window and highly rated by window professionals- we would have been happy with the window and install.
He really was willing to bend over backwards to make our situation work. But in the long run, making payments over time, every penny counts.
I was certainly impressed with the work done by Good News and would recommend them to anyone in the area looking to upgrade siding or windows. We had our whole house resided with LP Smartside pre-painted lap siding. The product looks amazing and the white trim is also a really nice touch. Lon Catto, the rep from Good News, was super knowledgeable, responsive, and helpful. We ran into a few "surprises" as this is a 70-year-old house and he was very fair in dealing with change orders that he could not have expected during the initial bid. His installers did really meticulous work. We also had Good News install 14 new Anlin Windows and they look great! They did all new insulation under the siding and were really efficient in dealing with county permits. I should note, they also handled a few other side projects that took a level of craftsmanship that was truly impressive. Highly Recommed!!
Good News was a pleasure to work with every step of the way. They are professional, are always on time, great pricing, knowledgeable, and very good at what they do. They work quickly, take care of everything and go above and beyond. I had 27 windows and 2 doors to install and they were all done well. One of the windows broke after installation for some reason and the company quickly ordered a new one and installed it a few days later for no charge. I highly recommend them and the product (Amerimax) is great. Their stucco subcontractor also did a fantastic job.
We could not be happier with our new Anlin windows, or our experience working with Good News making them happen. Top to bottom, from sales, to scheduling, all the way to the install -- everyone was responsive, respectful, professional, friendly, honest, and a pleasure to work with. You can really tell the entire team is committed to making the process as perfect as possible. Our sales visit left us confident in our purchase. The office was always easy to get ahold of for scheduling. The attention to detail by the installers was outstanding (they're wizards with sealant). And to top it all off the final product has been such a remarkable improvement for us in noise reduction, sealing out smoky air, and smooth operation that it feels like a major quality of life upgrade. We only did half our windows this time and we're already trying to figure out how soon we can get Good News back to do some more. 🙂
I didn't get any work done by them, but I found them on yelp after my lawnmower kicked a rock or dirt clod into my glass slider, which didn't completely shatter the window, but got it spidering and it had been spidering for 15 minutes or so. They advised me to get to home depot to buy a plastic film (told me what to look for) so that if it did shatter, it wouldn't go all over the place. second, they told me that all i needed to do was replace the glass and not the entire door. they only do entire doors, so they gave me a few numbers of glass repair people to get me started.
In my opinion, great customer service for spending a few minutes on the phone with a caller that they knew would have no immediate work for them right off the bat. If I ever need windows replaced, they will be my first call.
This is the second home I have used Good News to install my windows and I am just as happy about choosing them this time, as I was the first time.
Love the product and they look beautiful!
The two guys they sent out, Anthony and Tony were both polite and excellent workers.
If you need windows, give them a call, you will find that the cost is the most reasonable for a quality product.
Thanks guys, I'm very pleased!
