Windows

  • Remember that a window's performance is only as good as the people installing it. Unlike many other window companies that subcontract installation, Clark Interiors and Exteriors (CIE) employs our own experienced carpenters that are trained in methods to maximize the energy efficiency and comfort of your new windows.   
  • Budget amount - Replacement windows can be a considerable investment. CIE will help you maximize tax credits and explore interest free financing options for you.

  • Appearance – New windows enhance the interior and exterior appeal and also increase the value of your home. 
  • Ease of use and cleaning - Understand the differences in windows styles and how they facilitate operation, security and cleaning.

Doors

 Choosing the right entry door for your home is a big decision. Here are some things to keep in mind when making your selection. 


Door styles
Your front door adds curb appeal and can draw attention to your home. Create unique designs by combining door panels, transoms and decorative sidelites.

Glass options

Glass adds a touch of elegance to any home. Choose one that reflects your style, whether it's a full panel of clear energy efficient glass, tinted, or a decorative pattern with caming.

Security
You want your front door to be as secure as it is beautiful. Reinforced strike plate areas are a good security measure. Check the frame of the door to be sure it's strong, tight and well-constructed. 

Quality
Be careful when choosing the material for your entry door: wood has a history of warping, rotting and splitting. Alternative materials such as fiberglass and steel may prove more durable against the elements.

Performance & Warranty
Be sure the door you select will protect your house from the elements and not inflate your utility bills. Weatherstripping is a must, as is a door that fits snugly within the frame. Fiberglass or steel insulated door panels insulate better than hollow panels or wood construction. Look for a door that meets ENERGY STAR® guidelines. Buy from a manufacturer that stands behind its products. Check warranties to be sure the company will be there for you if there's a problem
