Ann has lived in the Sherwood neighborhood in the west hills of Portland, Oregon, since 1958. She built a beautiful home with high-end, double-pane windows but still found herself needing a drafty window fix.
She had hired architect Christopher Robinson to design a contemporary house in the undeveloped lot next door. Ann, a Frank Lloyd Wright aficionado, wanted the home to have lots of windows, especially on the south side, to take advantage of the copious light.
The resulting house, completed in 2005, is visually stunning but there was one problem: even though Ann had selected high-end double-panes, her favorite reading spot was afflicted by the cold, drafty double-pane windows. “My friend told me about these new inserts and I was immediately interested in them as a way to stop window drafts.”
Draft-Proofing Ann’s Windows
An authorized Indow dealer brought over an Indow sample and the brown color looked great against the stained fir frames. Ann says the process was easy once she decided to move forward. The sales representative carefully measured her window frames with a laser measuring tool and several weeks later came back to do the installation.
During the install Ann left to visit a neighbor. During the install Ann left to visit a neighbor. When she returned she was surprised because it looked like they hadn’t begun the installation, but in fact they had already finished!
