Windows 101 – Operation and Design Explained:
Our Standard Product Line
With a single-hung window, the bottom sash slides upward, allowing for a more economical version of the popular double-hung products. All single-hung products offer a standard tilt-in bottom sash for easier cleaning from inside the home.
Both sashes slide vertically in this design. This allows for various venting options. All double-hung products offer the standard feature of both sashes tilting in for easy cleaning from inside your home.
Sliding (Horizontal Rollers)
In a sliding design one or both sashes slide horizontally, requiring very little effort and dexterity. This makes them ideal for larger openings. Having few moving parts, means they have lower maintenance needs.
While most windows are square or rectangle, an arched design has a beautiful curved symmetrical shape. They are typically used to accent your home or office. One or two can be all it takes to add a distinct look.
Casement and Awning
A casement is a window that is attached to its frame by hinges at one side, allowing it to swing out. Windows hinged at the top are awning style. Both offer great ventilation and energy efficiency with an easy to operate design.

3 Reasons Why Now is the Time to Replace Your Home’s Windows
1. Energy Loss
It’s estimated that 10% to 25% of the cost to heat and cool your home is lost through inefficient and old windows. The typical window in Florida has a tough job. It has to allow natural light to pass through, but keep the heat from the sun out; it has to keep the cool air inside while preventing condensation from forming on the glass as well as to prevent warm air from leaking out in the winter. Replacing them drastically reduces energy loss and saves money by counteracting these natural processes.
2. Aesthetics and Functionality
Replacing your home’s windows and doors will greatly enhance its beauty and appeal. Old frames and glass can become faded, weak, moldy, less efficient, and less functional as the years go by. This is caused by direct exposure to the sun’s harmful rays, rain, humidity and severe weather. Enhancing your home with custom window work will solve all of these issues with aesthetics and functionality.
3. Hurricane Protection
Windows are the most vulnerable part of your home when debris are tossed around by high-velocity winds. Having one more layer of protection can minimize the stress on you and your home in the event of a hurricane. Our impact windows are heavy duty and manufactured with unique, multi-layer glass and a clear plastic-like film is bonded between the layers; enabling them to stand up to the force of a high-velocity projectile impact.
4 Benefits You’ll See Immediately by Installing Replacement Windows
1. Return On Investment
Home window replacement in Central Florida could give you a return on investment of up to 77%! This makes it one of the easiest and most profitable remodeling projects that you can undertake. Even if you sold your home shortly after installation, you would get the majority of your money back. If upgrading isn’t at the top of your home improvement projects, it probably should be—whether you’re thinking of selling or not!
2. Energy Savings
An immediate benefit after installation is a lower energy bill—up to 25% lower. Instead of allowing the sun’s heat in and your cool air out, energy efficient custom windows will keep your home insulated and comfortable by using less energy. Your old frames and glass are likely leaking in both directions and are the direct cause of an unnecessarily high energy bill. A more energy efficient home is a green home.
3. Noise Reduction
An often overlooked benefit is a quieter home. Your windows are the path of least resistance when it comes to outside noise. You’ll notice an immediate reduction in vehicle, lawn equipment, and other general noise coming from the outside. This means better sleep and a more comfortable home environment.
4. Curb Appeal
New windows give your home a fresh revitalized look. Not to mention the feeling you’ll enjoy as you look at your home from the inside and outside. In the future, if you decide to sell your home, this is one of the first things prospective buyers will notice as they drive up. In real estate this is known as curb appeal—when first impressions really matter.
