Windows 101

July 08, 2009

Window shopping is easy when you know what to look for. You'll find many styles, shapes, features and glass packages when looking for windows and doors. But deciding on the perfect choice for your home and family is simple. Just take your time and assess your needs. Consider which style will best suit your home and your family, what thermal performance features will be ideal for your climate, and which glass options will be most appropriate. After you've figured out the basics, have fun with glass and grid options and unique hardware choices.

Choosing Vinyl

When it comes to windows and doors, vinyl is an all-around excellent choice. Unlike wood, vinyl windows and doors will never rot or require endless repainting. And unlike aluminum, vinyl windows and doors will never pit or flake. Vinyl windows offer:

  • Increased Comfort
  • Easy Operation
  • Weatherability
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Low Maintenance
  • Value
