“My windows have gone from drafty and rattling in the frames in winter to tight and energy efficient. I estimate that I’ve saved 20% on my fuel bills the following winter after having them reconditioned by LWDRC, not to mention the money saved by repair rather than replacement of my 3 x 6 ft tall windows.”
