Is Your Long Island Home Ready for Summer?

Protect Your Home. Improve Curb Appeal. Enjoy The Best Summer Yet.

Long Island Rainbow

Summer on Long Island can be a beautiful thing. Situated on the Atlantic coast, with close proximity to both sandy beaches and the urban New York City lifestyle, Long Island has nearly endless opportunities for its residents. On sunny days, an excursion to the beach is a must, and on days when the weather isn’t quite as cooperative, there are plenty of great restaurants and museums to visit throughout the area.

As Long Islanders, it’s practically in our blood to handle anything life throws our way. From excruciatingly hot summers, to harshly cold winters, to hurricanes, and everything in between… we’re built to survive. But, are our homes?

Tips for Protecting Your Long Island Home

When you live in an environment where the weather is constantly changing, it’s crucial to have all your bases covered. Your home must be equipped to withstand any harsh weather condition, including high winds, rain, severe heat and freezing temperatures — and come out strong on the other side.

Fortunately, Window World of Long Island has all the tools you need to help your home weather any kind of environment — good or bad. Just a few of the ways you can get your Long Island home in great shape for the summer, include:


Shakes & Scallops1. Transform your exterior with vinyl shakes and scallops.

Often associated with coastal homes, shakes or scallops can be used to create a beautiful accent to your home, or as your main source of siding. Hand-crafted to look like real cedar, our line of shakes and scallops add all the beauty to your home without the excruciating upkeep of real cedar. Not to mention, in an environment where salt is found in the air and summer storms are common, they’re much more likely to last longer than real cedar. Learn more about shakes and scallops here.


Bay Windows

2. Add a bay window for extra sunlight.

Long Island has plenty of sunny, beautiful days to offer. Why not enjoy a little extra sunlight in your space with a beautiful new bay window? Our bay windows not only allow natural light into your home, but also create the illusion of expanded space. You’ll be more than pleased with your new sweeping views, whether they’re of the ocean, the New York City skyline or your own backyard. Learn more about our bay windows here.


Energy-Efficient Windows3. Replace old windows with energy-efficient ones.

Energy-efficient windows are one of the best investments you can make for your home. Window World energy-efficient windows can help you reap significant savings on your energy bills by maintaining constant temperatures inside your home. Our Low-e glass and Intercept™ Warm Edge Spacer work together to trap undesirable air outside and keep the air from your heating/cooling systems, inside. Our energy-efficient windows will keep your home comfortable through the hottest, and the coldest, days. Learn more about our energy-efficient windows here.


Vinyl Siding

4. Replace your vinyl siding.

Your vinyl siding serves so many purposes for your home. It not only improves your curb appeal, but it also protects your home from harsh weather elements and may help you maintain constant temperatures within your home. Window World of Long Island offers a variety of vinyl siding options to meet your needs in style, strength, functionality and color. Several of our vinyl siding options have been tested to withstand category 5 hurricane winds, while others are designed to help you save big on your energy bills. Whatever your needs are, we can meet them. Learn more about our vinyl siding here.
