What types of windows are available?

The three types of windows most commonly offered are aluminum, wood or vinyl – with wood and vinyl the most popular choices. It’s important to note that aluminum windows have painted surfaces that may scratch easily and the metal construction makes for a poor insulator. Wood windows are effective insulators, but can absorb moisture and typically require painting, caulking and other annual upkeep to maintain appearance and performance. Vinyl windows are the most popular choice because they expertly combine beauty, durability and low maintenance with high-performance thermal efficiency. The solid vinyl construction never needs to be painted, and the precision-fit mainframe and sash, along with several insulating components, achieve exceptional energy savings. Our manufacturer’s windows are available in a wide range of styles and configurations to fit all architectural designs.
