Energy Tech owner Jim Evans provides quality, energy-efficient window and siding products for your home or office.
With a lifetime of experience in the home improvement industry, Jim Evans recently opened his company, Energy Tech, Inc. “We are a window and siding company specializing in quality, energy-efficient products for your home or office,” says Evans. “I actually began working for a home improvement company when I was just 16 years old.”
Energy Tech carries windows, patio doors and siding from various manufacturers. Some of Evans’s favorite products are from Gorell Windows & Doors. Gorell carries the finest quality products and has been awarded the prestigious Energy Star Manufacturer of the Year Award for the past five years. Additionally, it is the only manufacturer in the country to receive the prestigious Energy Star Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence Award. Gorell received the award for the third consecutive year from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its continued leadership in protecting the environment through energy efficiency. Gorell’s replacement windows and patio doors are expertly designed and skillfully manufactured to provide you with cost-saving energy efficiency, exceptional safety and security, greater comfort, and remarkable beauty.
Made of strong, premium-grade materials to help keep intruders out, these products are also unbelievably easy to operate and clean. “Gorell windows are virtually maintenance free and will look as beautiful and work as well decades from now as they did the day they were installed in your home,” says Evans.
Evans cautions homeowners to avoid being misled by cheap prices for replacement windows. “You generally get what you pay for,” he says. Cheap, low-quality replacement windows often begin failing just months after installation and may leave you with high energy bills and an uncomfortable home. They may also develop ongoing mechanical problems.
In addition to the best new construction and replacement windows available, Evans highly recommends Gorell’s superb, heavy-duty patio doors, storm doors and storm windows. All Gorell products are available in a wide array of styles, shapes and other options, including numerous glass system choices that qualify them for the Energy Star label.
Another quality product Evans recommends is the Don Young SunShield Window. The exclusive compounds used in these windows are specially formulated with highly refined polymers in combination with engineered multi-chamber designs to produce high-performance, attractive, energy-efficient windows you can rely on. They provide a lifetime of beauty and thermal performance and have helped revolutionize the building products industry, in which vinyl is firmly established as one of the most popular materials. According to Evans, “The SunShield Vinyl Window has been manufactured specifically for our Southwest climate.”
Energy Tech also carries Certainteed and Variform vinyl siding. Between these two manufacturers, just about anything you could want in vinyl siding is available. Energy Tech also has a line of Vinyl Log Siding. Go online to www.energytechinc.net to see a photo of a beautiful home done in log siding.
If your home is feeling drafty in cold weather or uncomfortably hot from heat penetrating windows in warm weather, if your heating and cooling costs are high, or if your home’s windows are just tired or dated looking and you’re constantly having to work with them, it may be time to look into modern replacement windows.
During Jim Evans’s long career in the home improvement industry, he can account for over 1,800 satisfied customers in the Tulsa/Broken Arrow market. His professional Energy Tech team has installed over 24,000 windows throughout the area in their collective careers. Energy Tech is providing replacement windows and patio doors throughout Green Country and would appreciate the opportunity to provide you with a free estimate on your next replacement window project.
