Windows - Did you put a UV protective coating. My windows will be mainly north facing or east where we have a covered porch, Just wonder if it's worth the extra

Lowees, it sounds like your new triple pane windows will probably be good enough. I have never encountered anything resembling a standard when it comes to UV protection. The manufacturer of the windows should have detailed performance numbers for the particular windows you are purchasing. Never assume unless it is in writing. I have seen far too many clients get burned because someone told them they had UV protection, and they did have some, just not enough to make a difference.

Most dual pane windows will block about 30-40% of the UV. Low E windows have a bigger range in the 35-99% with most of them I see in the 40-50% range. Triple pane should be 50-99% but again that is a wide range depending upon the types of coatings the manufacturer is using. 60-70% sounds good but imagine if you went to the beach and only put sunscreen on 70% of your face...

Educate yourself and get the actual performance specs for your windows. Only then can you make an informed decision.
