Custom Vinyl Windows
Windows today still serve the same purposes as in the past such as providing light, views, ventilation, security, noise reduction and insulation. Luckily, today's technology means you can easily configure the exact combination of features required at low cost. Features of double and triple glazing include security glass, sound proofing and insulation. Moreover, vinyl replacement windows can easily pay for themselves by reducing monthly utility costs.
Features and Options
We offer a range of features for all profile types and vinyl window styles for both replacement and new construction. While glazing plays the largest role in noise reduction, insulation and security, you shouldn't overlook hardware and fittings, particularly regarding security. Last but not least, there are handles, shutters and bug screens to consider. Whether you need locking casement windows, bow windows or electric or manually operated shutters, you'll find the right ones here at low cost plus installation information.
Window Styles & Colors
Quality windows and doors don't have to come with a high price tag. Vinyl is an excellent frame material with a fantastic price-performance ratio. Moreover, it is available in hundreds of colors to match your needs and home's exterior. Each of the over 200 colors in the RAL Classic range have a unique code to make choosing and ordering simple.
Popular RAL colors include:
Unlike wood and aluminum, vinyl windows are given special colored foil finishes that are directly applied to the sash and frame by the manufacturer. This foil also protects the surface from weather, scratches and other wear.
The additional layer of protection from this type of finish makes them even easier to care for and helps ensure a great appearance for many years to come.
Glazing & Insulation
Energy efficiency has become increasingly important over the past several years. Windows and exterior doors are major sources of both potential energy loss, but also savings.The Energeto series, for example, is aimed at those requiring higher insulation values.
In addition to the profile type and number of chambers, the glazing selected can make all the difference between an energy efficient home and one that wastes energy and needlessly increases your costs.
Insulating glazing is therefore a popular option for homeowners. There are several types with a range of heat transmission coefficients (U-value):
- Double glazing with 1.1 W/(m2K)
- Double glazing with 1.0 W/(m2K)
- Triple glazing with 0.7 W/(m2K)
- Triple glazing with 0.6 W/(m2K)
The heat transmission coefficient indicates how much energy that a particular element of a building – in this case the window – loses per square meter, when the temperature difference on the interior and exterior is one Kelvin. The lower the value, the better. Considering the number of windows in a home and their combined surface area, a difference as low as 0.1 W/(m2K) can mean a huge difference in a home's energy efficiency after installation and therefore your monthly bills.
