How Can We Give An Accurate Quote Without Coming To Your Home?

This is one of those things where you can actually say, “Size doesn’t matter.”  Well, not that much anyway. ?

The biggest expense in making windows (at a factory) is not the materials. EVERY window is custom made. So every window has to have the same number of steps in setting up the jig, the same number of welds, the same number of components etc. These things do not change in any way according to the size of the window.

As far as the materials needed to make a window of 9 sq. ft or 12 sq. ft., there just isn’t that much cost difference in the glass or vinyl. We’re talking $6.00 here. When you compare that to a the cost of a window… it’s really nothing that I as a Zen owner am going to lose sleep over.  There is a point where it does make a bit more difference and that’s when you get into windows over 17 sq. ft. (101 unified inches eg. 41? x 60? = 101?)  That’s why we ask you for the size of your largest window and how many are that size or close to that size.  BUT… even at that, if we get that wrong, it’s not a death sentence and won’t put us in the throws of bankruptcy.


What Are The Benefits That You Can Get From Home Replacement Windows?

You can get a lot of benefits from having your old windows replaced. Let’s take a look at what those benefits are.

Energy Efficiency

Most of replacement windows available in the market today not only look really good but they are also designed to be energy efficient. These windows will fit perfectly onto your home and will seal tightly. This will help make sure that you won’t have drafts in your house during winter and will help you keep cold air inside the house during the hot days of summer. As an end result, you get to cut down your energy bills to a huge extent.

Improved Value

Having new glass panes on your home will not only help it be more energy efficient but they will also help a lot in improving the overall value of your home. Home improvements are mainly intended to raise the value of homes and new energy efficient panes of glass will help do just that. Plus, they will give your home a fresh and nicer look.

Lesser Noise

Since new glass panes are usually insulated and have the ability to seal the elements out, they are also pretty good when it comes to sealing out noise. This reduces sound transmission and makes your home quieter inside.

Better Glass

Replacement windows available in the market nowadays are insulated with Low-E glass, which is a special coating that reflects infrared light. This coating is what gives the windows the ability to keep a house warmer during winter and cooler during summer. It also has various levels of UV protection. The highest levels of UV protection would be best to use on the south and west sides of your home.

Better Security

Having new windows will not only improve your home’s look but it will also give it better security features. A lot of glass types that are used on windows nowadays have improved locking mechanisms.

Should I invest $200, $600 Or $1500 On A New Window?

Let’s start things by stating the obvious. We all love a good deal. However, when you look for a good deal in the home improvement industry as well as other industries, you need to know the famous saying: “Buy cheap. Buy twice.”

New replacement windows that range from $200 to $400 will likely leave you with something that’s called a rental window. A “rental window” is basically a band-aid that you place on your home that you need to replace after a certain period of time. There are a lot of reasons for this and they can range from the window being a poor quality product to a really poor or lacking window installation or warranty.

Let’s now proceed to some good news. A new replacement window that costs $1500 is practically the same as one that only costs $600. How is this possible? The answer is fairly simple. In the home improvement industry, there are a large number of replacement window companies that just exist to make money fast. In their quest to do so, they try their best to sell as many replacement windows as possible and in the fastest way possible to people who aren’t familiar with the products that they offer. In this type of business model, window companies capitalize on unsavvy replacement window shoppers and they make a lot of money really fast and are gone within a snap of a finger. The windows that they sell may actually be good and their installation may also be good but they may not be a company that has been in business for a long time with this kind of care for their customers.

Next, let’s drop down to the window that only costs $600 – the same product, the same installation, and a much better warranty, because the company is in it for the long haul. When you stumble upon this type of company, you’ll know that they are not there to make the quick buck. Instead, they are there to establish a lifelong relationship with their clients. This type of company will still be up and running in 20 years when you pick up the phone and call them either for a service call or more home improvements.

So, what’s the reason behind the huge diversity in price? Most of the window companies out there are just doing what they do to earn money but there are some companies who put more focus on relationships plus a small profit. You will notice that the good companies build their businesses slowly but surely through word of mouth and a flawless reputation based on honesty, integrity, and quality service. This type of window companies has clients that know and are certain that they can call on them at any given time and that they know that when they do, the phone is going to ring, someone is going to pick it up, and the problem that they have will be solved within 24 hours.

In summary, the window that only costs $600 and the one that costs $1500 are exactly the same thing. It’s ironic that the one that costs much lesser provides the better value because it involves dealing with a reputable window company that has been in business for decades and does things ethically. Knowing this will give consumers not just the benefit of saving money but as well as the peace of mind that they need for the future of their largest investment, their home.


What’s A Good Warranty On New Windows?

Aside from the question stated above, another great window replacement question you can ask would be, “How long will the warranty that the company will provide me cover my windows?” Most of the companies out there will tell you, “a lifetime” but this is a very ambiguous answer. When you look into warranty issues, you need to consider a lot of different components.

  1. Is the warranty of the windows backed up by the window company you got them from or is it backed up by the window manufacturer?
  2. Does the term “lifetime” refer to the lifetime of the window, the span of time you’re going to spend living in your home, or the lifetime of your house? Does the warranty cover both the window and the installation process or just the window?
  3. If warranty issues arise, is your window warranty pro-rated?
  4. Are you going to be charged if a warranty issue arises?
  5. If you decide to sell your house, is the warranty transferrable to the buyer? If yes, is doing so going to cost you money?
  6. If the glass of the window accidentally breaks, is this still covered by the warranty?
  7. If the window screen tears apart, will the warranty cover the replacement of that screen?
  8. Does the window company have a full time service technician on standby in case you encounter a warranty issue? If yes, is the company’s service department open 24/7 in case an emergency happens?

These are just some of the questions that you need to ask a window company when they tell you that they offer a lifetime warranty. If you want to make sure that the warranty that the company offers is really as good as they claim it to be, ask for references. When we say references, we’re referring to how well the company performed when they were asked to cover a warranty issue and not how well they did when they installed windows.

Ask them the following questions:

  1. How long does it take them to file a service call?
  2. How long does it take them to complete the service call?
  3. Was the technician on call when the client filed the service call?
  4. Was the client charged anything for the service?

If the answers to the questions listed above are as follows:

  1. The technician was on call the moment the service call was filed.
  2. The technician went to my house on that same day and didn’t charge me any money whatsoever.
  3. It’s part of the company’s policy to do the same thing in the future.

Then you can be assured that you found a company that offers a really good window warranty. If the company doesn’t respond immediately to service calls regardless of the size of the problem at hand or if they charge money to fix their clients’ windows, then the warranty they provide is not as good as they claim it to be.

The bottom line of making sure that you get your hands on a good warranty is to invest money on replacement windows for one time only. You don’t want to ever spend any more money after you pay for your replacement windows. This is why it’s important to take the time to ask for the complete details of the warranty that the window company provides rather than just accepting the answer “We offer a lifetime warranty.”


Why Do Other Home Improvement Companies Require A Down Payment?

Other than stating the obvious, which is either a company getting your check and cashing it in and never actually doing the work you asked from them or, doing tactics that will delay the project because they already have the money that they need from you, a lot of things are involved in a window project aside from the replacement windows themselves. First of all, the window installers from any company out there are going to be tearing your home apart. In order for you to make sure that their guys are going to carry out your project accurately and the way you want it to be, you should take into consideration the different components that a lot of homeowners never even think about.

Here are a couple of important questions that you need to ask about the installation process:

  1. If my windows need to wood bucked, am I going to be charged extra for this?
  2. Will you charge for damages such as casing, sills, etc.?
  3. Are you going to move my furniture before you start with the installation process or am I going to be responsible for doing this?
  4. Are you going to remove or replace my air conditioning units?
  5. Are you going to provide me with new capping, casing or caulk?
  6. Are you going to use silicone when caulking?
  7. Are you going to remove or install my awnings?
  8. Are you going to insulate the walls situated around the windows and seal around the corners?
  9. If you find rotted pieces of wood while removing my old windows, are you going to replace them?
  10. If I need to have a new header, am I going to be charged for that?

The things stated above are just a few of the things that are going to prevent you from being charged too much money for your project or ending up getting a poor window installation done on your home.

Lastly, you also need to remember to ask whether or not the installers are going to pick up and haul away all of the debris that are going to be produced during the installation process. Plus, you should also ask the company if they are going to vacuum your home and wash your windows.

With Zen Windows, you get a huge advantage upfront because you don’t have to give us any down payment. This means that you don’t have to pay us any money until your project is done 100% correctly and you’re happy with it. This is our own way of protecting you and making sure that your home’s new window project is going to be done professionally and in a seamless manner.


Why Do Window Bids Differ So Much?

This is a really good question. Before we proceed to answering this, you need to know that there are really good windows and there are really bad windows on sale in the market today.

In general, people who shop for replacement windows for their homes will get three bids. In the same location, all these three bids will be really close in range but sometimes they can differ to a huge extent. There a lot of reasons for this but the main one would be the fact that pricing of the windows is a direct function of the overhead of the company that’s providing the quote. In one of the cases we’ve encountered, one of our customers got three quotes from three different companies. The first one gave a quote of $51,000. The second company’s estimate was $32,000. Zen Windows’ bid was only $15,000. With a puzzled look on their face, the homeowners asked us why there’s such a significant difference in price range. I started off comforting them by telling them that the other two companies that gave those quotes were reputable and that they offer high quality products paired with good installation services so they were not trying to take advantage of them. In addition, I told them that in any type of business model, people who own businesses will do their best to earn good profit. In their quest to do so, a company can have a really huge office, a group of 60 telemarketers, 60 canvassers, 30 sales people, 15 managers, and so on. All of these overload needs to build on the price of the windows that they offer. And on top of all of the people that they have, they also need to pay for marketing expenses. Most companies market their business on the newspaper, radio, television, etc. This further makes their replacement windows more expensive.

Afterwards, I explained to them how the Zen Windows business model has been designed and set up. The founder of Zen Windows, Dan Wolt, has been in the window business for 20 years and has realized that he could make a business model that will not only work best for him but as well as for homeowners. Through the Zen Windows business model, we have made the shopping experience for homeowners an extremely painless one. We’ve also provided people something that’s rather unique in the kind of industry that we’re in. All the business comes from either word of mouth or what you may have done a few minutes ago, an online search. Our clients find that the Zen Windows business model is something that works for everybody.

First of all, our clients meet up with me, the owner. I don’t have any salespeople in my company for a lot of reasons. These reasons include the following: 1. This is my own company and brand, and I would want to be the only person who gets to represent it; 2. If my clients need anything from my company, they can easily contact me directly because I have given them my personal cell phone and office phone numbers, as well as my email address. Through this, they won’t have to deal with anybody else but the owner of the company; and 3. Doing this gives me the ability to keep my prices extremely competitive because I don’t have to deal with sales commissions and there’s very little overhead. Since my business is largely based on referrals, I get the advantage of having the flexibility to take care of my clients by helping and guiding them with their window replacement as well as their home improvement budgets.


How Important Is The Window Installer For Your Project?

A lot of homeowners who decide to have replacement windows installed on their homes commit the mistake of ignoring the qualifications of the window installer. If people pour all of their concern on the price, they put all of their attention on the quality of the window.

Checking carefully for the quality of the replacement windows you’re planning to buy is important. You want to make sure that the ones you’re going to get not only look good, are energy efficient, but are very durable as well. You can do so by checking if the manufacturer of the windows have been in business for more than 30 years and have been known to offer time-tested products and seeing for yourself if they use the right glass package and durable materials. Doing all of these things would be a good start. However, you shouldn’t stop there.

A lot of homeowners stop their shopping efforts when they find the best windows in the market offered at the best price. They fail to realize that it’s also very important to look into the qualifications of the window installer who’s going to put those windows on their home. When you check whether or not the window installer is the right person for the job, you can start by asking your window company if their installers are subcontractors or actual employees of their company. The answer you get from this will give you a good idea as to how the company operates. A window company’s loyal installers should ideally be assigned to work on window install jobs only. They should never be used as jacks of all trades by having them take on whatever type of project that comes along the way.

Next, you can check for the installers’ qualifications by asking the window company if they have passed the AAMI certification program. A window company that has AAMI-certified installers that have years of experience who are actual employees of their firm, paired with high quality products, would be the ideal choice to go for.

Let’s consider the other side of the spectrum. A lot of window companies today choose to hire subcontractors for the job. Subcontractors are basically installers who work for different companies at the same time. Window companies decide when they’re going to use the subcontractors and usually negotiate labor pricing to compensate for slow times during the year. In addition, subcontractors are assigned to handle different types of jobs aside from installs. This means, they may be installing windows today and could be asked to install a new bathroom the next day and onto a different task the day after that.

Subcontractors are generally not loyal to any single company and are usually not AAMI-certified. This means that it wouldn’t make any sense to spend hours on doing research to look for the best windows in the market if you’re going to hand them over to the wrong people for the installation job.

AAMI-certified window installers who work for the window company are tasked to ensure that the windows get installed properly. Moreover, they are trained to perform all the necessary adjustments to the client’s home such as checking for termite infestation and water damage, replacing rotted wood, insulating the walls before actually installing the new replacement windows. AAMI-certified installers are also going to properly caulk both the interior and exterior of the windows and will custom cap the exterior in order to give the home a complete finish. This kind of installer takes pride in the quality of the work that they do not only because they represent a company but also because they are employed by the company itself.

Please don’t think that this is a knock on subcontractors. There are a lot of good ones out there. However, when you want to have home improvements done, it would be best for you to reduce the risk of a bad installation as much as you can. Having an AAMI-certified window installer for the job is the best way to do this. With this type of installer, you can be assured that your windows are going to be installed perfectly and that issues that are going to arise in the future will be serviced properly.


What Makes Replacement Windows Energy Efficient?
Modern types of windows are specially designed and made to keep rain, wind, sleet, and snow during winter out while keeping warm air inside the house. These replacement windows also have the ability to keep heat outside during really hot days while still letting light in and providing a nice view of the outside world. These major qualities perfectly define energy efficient replacement windows. A lot of things are included in the production of energy efficient windows. Some of the most important things are the overall design of the product, the materials to be used, and the process as to how they are going to be made. All these things play an important role in making a replacement window that will help people save thousands of dollars on both their electric and gas bills over the entire lifespan of the product. The most energy efficient replacement windows are made from materials that have the ability to keep the amount of heat transfer to a minimum. This reduction of heat transfer enables the windows to keep heat inside during winter and keep it outside during summer. A double glazed glass pack that has a PPG Intercept spacer or a foam Super Spacer in between its two pieces of glass can keep the transfer of heat to a minimum. The glass used on modern energy efficient replacement windows is treated with a low emissivity coating, which reflects heat back in the form of infrared light while still allowing visible light to pass through. Energy efficient window frames and sashes are also manufactured using material that’s intended to limit the amount of heat transfer. Vinyl is considered as one of the best materials when it comes to providing high levels of energy efficiency. In addition to keeping heat transfer to minimal levels, modern replacement windows are also designed to seal out air and water infiltration. For example, energy efficient double hung windows are made with sashes that close snugly into pocket headers and sills. The sashes of the windows are also designed to interlock with each other at the meeting rail. Vinyl sashes usually come with rubber seals and weather strips that further improve the windows’ sealing ability. Before, aluminum, vinyl, and wood windows were designed with frames that are mechanically connected through nails or screws. These types of joints were known to weaken up and create gaps that allow air and water in. Today’s windows have the vinyl in their frame and sash fused using heat which welds the seams together. This type of frame and sash design has the ability to withstand bend and flex movements from the house which means that it won’t loosen up over time and can remain effective in being a barrier against the natural elements. Both the design and production of replacement windows have come a long way over a short period of time. With the cost of making a home comfortable to live in continually rising, the answer to whether or not it’s wise to use energy efficient replacement windows is becoming easier to answer. In Austin, replacement windows are surely an easy decision with Zen Windows. Call SCOTT today and get your quote within five minutes and have your windows installed as soon as possible.


Why Should You Choose Vinyl Replacement Windows?

For countless years, windows have been manufactured using wood. This is so because wood provides a nice appearance and was readily available to craftsmen. However, as time passed by, people realized that exposure to different natural elements namely wind, rain, snow, sunlight, etc. would eventually take its toll on wood windows and that they would need to be replaced when that happens. In the early 1900s, this window construction method was slowly replaced with ones that made use of steel. The material doesn’t corrode over time and has the capacity to withstand the harmful effects of the elements. However, steel replacement windows transfer both heat and cold, which means that homes that had them would be warmer during the summer and much colder during winter. In addition, steel windows were really difficult to install because they are really heavy. To get rid of the difficulty of installing steel replacement windows while still keeping the maintenance-benefits that they provided, aluminum was later on used. With aluminum as the material, a new generation of replacement windows started to be produced because of its lesser weight and cost. However, despite the fact that aluminum replacement windows had the ability to withstand the harmful effects of the elements, weighed lesser, and were less costly to make, they didn’t help in making homes more energy efficient. These realizations lead to the use of vinyl as the new superstar material for the production of replacement windows.

Unlike wood, steel, and aluminum, vinyl replacement windows are made with framing materials that can significantly increase energy efficiency. Plus, they don’t require painting or sealing. Vinyl also has the ability to withstand the elements more effectively as compared to wood and metal. It does not corrode, flake, or peel and its color will maintain its integrity.

Among all of the materials used in the production of replacement windows, vinyl is the cheapest. Even though it’s the cheapest in terms of cost, it certainly is not when it comes to energy efficiency, durability, and style. Vinyl replacement windows are commonly made with double-paned or triple-glazed glass for better energy efficiency.

With vinyl replacement windows, you can save a lot of money on your purchase plus you get to enjoy all of the benefits that come along with them.


Do Replacement Windows Really Pay For Themselves?

There are a lot of reasons why having new replacement windows installed on your home is a good idea. These reasons include: improving the overall value of your home; making your home more attractive to potential buyers if you have plans on selling it; enhancing the aesthetic appeal of your home’s exterior; getting the ability to keep your windows clean; and having a maintenance-free environment.

This is because the reasons stated above seem to be luxuries except for the reason of getting a marketing advantage when selling your home.

Replacement windows, however, believe it or not, are actually more of a necessity than a luxury. Let’s have a look at a typical vinyl replacement window that has a simple glass package of LOe and argon. If this replacement window is installed properly, it can help cut down energy bills by at least 25%. To make this explanation simpler, let’s say that your energy bills average at $100 per month. If you get to save 25% on your monthly bill, you will be able to save at least $300 from your energy bills every year without the consideration of inflation. If we don’t take inflation into account, you can save $3000 on your energy bills within a 10-year period if you get replacement windows. This shows that getting new windows not just helps you improve the look of your home but also helps you save a lot of money in the long run. This simple explanation proves that replacement windows indeed pay for themselves within a span of 3 to 5 years.

The choice is really up to you. You can choose to stick with your old and poor performing windows and pay your utility company $3000 or more in 5 years or, you can get new replacement windows and have the chance to enjoy all of the benefits that they can offer.

Now, let’s proceed to the fun part. Did you know that your energy efficient windows are going to become lifetime employees of your home? They are going to work for your home by helping you save money in different ways. What’s even greater news is that they won’t cost you any additional money. They are going to be dedicated workers by shielding, protecting, and sealing your home and family by covering up the biggest openings of the exterior of your home.

All of these things show that replacement windows not only improve a home’s functional abilities but as well as its aesthetic properties.

Are Your Windows Giving You The Cold Shoulder?

When homeowners think of their home’s windows, the most common question they ask themselves is, “How do I know if it’s already time to replace my windows?”

A lot of people nowadays are slowly realizing the importance of having new windows for their homes because of fuel increases as well the tax incentives that are provided by the government. Here are a couple of things that will help you determine whether or not you already need to get new replacement windows. Let’s also go over some tips that will help you find the best replacement windows that will help improve the beauty and overall value of your home.

First off, you need to consider if your windows are giving you the cold shoulder. You can check this by placing your hand on the glass pane of your window during a cold day. Feel if the glass is warm like your home or if it’s cold like the weather outside. If the glass feels cold, then this is a good indicator that the windows that you have at home may no longer be functioning at their best.

Next, touch the frame of the window. Try to check if the frame has the same temperature as your home or if it’s cold like the temperature outside. If the frame feels cold, this means that it’s not functioning properly and a considerable amount of heat is escaping outside your house. This is so because energy efficient and well-functioning windows reflect heat from your furnace back inside your home.

Another good thing to do to check if your windows still work properly would be to light a matchstick and move it around your window. See whether the flame from the matchstick flickers or blows out. If that happens, your window is allowing air to pass through. This means that your house is experiencing a great deal of heating and cooling loss. Having the best quality replacement windows from Zen Windows will help you save a lot of money by having the energy efficiency that your house needs to cut down heating and air conditioning costs.

The look of the glass on your window is another good indicator that you need to get new windows. If the glass looks fogged up, it’s because of a seal failure and cold air infiltration is very imminent.

Lastly, open and close your windows by only using one finger on each hand. A good window is easily operable and provides both proper ventilation and security for you and your family. Inoperable windows can be a huge hindrance for different reasons such as endangering an exit during a fire; and causing poor air quality inside your home because of exposure to allergens, mold, and mildew.

The best replacement windows not only make your house look good but they also enhance its value. Give Zen Windows a call today and let’s discuss the best replacement windows for your home.


Why Is It A Good Idea To Change Your Entry Door When You Replace Your Home’s Windows?

A lot of homeowners today have decided to replace their home’s windows not just for the reason of improving its aesthetic value but as well to get the chance to lower down their heating bills and improve its overall value. Most homeowners don’t get satisfied with the overall energy savings that they get from having new replacement windows. Even though the replacement windows offer a lot of curb appeal, the amount of heat loss of the home hasn’t been dramatically affected. You need to know that this is not necessarily because of the quality of the replacement windows that have been installed or the quality of the install that was done. A lot of people get really caught up in the details of the actual windows themselves that they fail to consider another important factor.

Possible questions that may arise include:

  1. Are the windows a solid vinyl construction?
  2. Are they fusion-welded?
  3. Are their frame structures made with I-beam construction?
  4. Do the windows have weeped sills, balanced covers, etc?

Furthermore, people will think whether or not the windows have warm-edge technology, argon gas, Lo-e glass, and an overall insulating glass package that will provide a good R-value rating.

If we assume that the replacement windows have all of the integral parts and that they have been installed perfectly well, why are still homeowners unhappy with the small amount of change that they observe on their heating and cooling costs? The answer to this question basically lies on the largest opening of most homes, the front entry door.

A lot of people fail to realize that when they successfully seal their homes with energy efficient vinyl windows, the cold or warm air inside will rush to the least insulated part of their house which would be the front door. This is the main reason why it’s important for a window company to discuss with clients the need to replace their front entry door when they decide to have new windows installed. If you want to be able to have full coverage on energy savings, you need to consider both windows and doors.

Having an insulated steel entry door system is critical if you want to meet a home’s needs in today’s time. High energy saving performance doors that provide both good security and aesthetic value are readily available for affordable prices in today’s market. You can try getting a steel gauge door that has compression weather stripping, a unique glasslite design, and an adjustable oak threshold. This type of door would be essential and economical if the main reason for your project is to improve your home’s energy efficiency and facilitate its sale.

Always remember to think both windows and doors when you’re considering having a window project for your home. Since your home’s front door can have a huge effect on heating and cooling efficiencies. Talking about getting an energy efficient replacement door is something that you’ll want to discuss with your window and door company. Doing so will allow you to plan your project way better so that you can get the best results for your home.

Can Replacement Windows And Doors Be Installed During Winter In Atlanta?

Yes, of course. Both replacement windows and doors can be installed during winter in Atlanta, Ga.

To prevent heat loss, our installers perform the necessary precautions by only installing windows one at a time. They do the window replacement prep work before removing the windows. This helps them minimize the amount of time the old windows or doors are out of your home and the amount of time before your new set of replacement windows can be installed. Ideally, the out time for your window, if it’s installed properly, should never go beyond five minutes. To provide extra precaution, all of the doors in the rooms are going to be closed to prevent further drafts.

Even though the window replacement prep work is going to require more effort from our installers, you won’t have to pay us extra. As a matter of fact, window installations done during winter can help you save both time and money because labor costs as well as delivery times are much faster during this season.

The window installation by Zen Windows is a quiet process. When a window is properly installed upstairs, you won’t even hear the window replacement crew working while you’re watching TV in your den. The same thing goes for installing new doors that will never leak air again.

We respect your family and your home. This is why we make sure that we have one installer outside the house and another one inside. Through this, we can prevent ourselves from bringing in any residue such as mud or snow into your house during the installation process.

With Zen Windows, you won’t have to go through another cold and expensive winter because of the new energy efficient and beautiful windows that we’re going to install for you. The replacement windows that we’re going to provide you will allow you to enjoy the rest of the winter season in absolute comfort while helping you improve the overall value of your home. This makes it a lot more secure, better looking, and gives it the ability to reduce outside noise.

Respect and proper installation are key components of the Zen Windows experience.
