SHOP SMALL, BUY LOCAL AND KEEP MORE MONEY IN YOUR COMMUNITY.
The Saturday following Thanksgiving plays hide and seek between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but easily stands on it’s own as one of the most important shopping days of the year. Founded six years ago in response to small business owners’ most pressing need – getting more customers during the busy holiday shopping season – Small Business Saturday has quickly earned its’ stripes among holiday traditions. Last year alone, 88 million consumers shopped small on Small Business Saturday – which was up 14.9 percent from 2013. Additionally, consumers spent $14.3 billion at local and independent businesses on Small Business Saturday in 2014, and this year the hype and buzz surrounding the day seems to have only increased.
With energy prices skyrocketing, now is the time to think about how to make your home as energy efficient as it can be.
Windows let light and air into your home. Unfortunately, inefficient windows can also bring in the cold, driving up heating costs. Replacing them with new energy efficient replacement windows will make your home more comfortable and reduce energy consumption. To find a good replacement window, consider the following factors.

Even if your home was originally constructed as an energy-efficient house, time and nature have a way of taking their toll on your home. For example, opening and closing doors and windows over months and years can cause weatherstripping to break down and lose its ability to insulate and protect your home from cold winter drafts.
Angies List review
Gravina’s Windows are in Littleton, Colorado where I’d seen their ads and billboards many times. I stopped in and asked if they could remove a window and replace it with a door to my patio. They said “absolutely”, showed me some samples in the store and made arrangements to stop by my house. When they came, I showed them the 3 windows I wanted changed and where the door would go. They gave me a very fare bid for the entire work and I signed the contract
Everything went exceptionally well. They were ahead of schedule; first came the men to remove the brick from the outside making way for the door. Two days later the window and door crew arrived (3 altogether). They removed the windows, mounted the new windows and doors, and finished in one day. A couple days later the painter came by to finish the project – and again everything went smoothly. My neighbors have commented on how nice the new windows looked, but were amazed at the “window – now a double-door” leading to the patio. I’m now looking forward to building a deck over the new door, and having Gravina come out again and put a new door upstairs leading to my deck!!! Gravina’s is the Best Window Company in Littleton, if not the entire State of Colorado.
Most of the time we at Gravina’s sell fiberglass windows. When it comes to wood windows, some homeowners may wonder if there is any advantage to ordering pre-finished windows, since they could conceivably do the finishing themselves. But a factory-finished window has many advantages for both contractors and their customers.
