Choose from our Classic, Original or Contemporary
handcrafted designs. Each of the hand-cut, clear or stained glass leaded inlays is mounted between two continuous sheets of
annealed or safety tempered insulating glass.
And you don't have to trade all this custom elegance for thermal
perfomance. Each of our decorative glass styles combines aesthetic detailing with full insulating glass energy efficiency.

- Vinyl vs. wood or aluminum
Vinyl is a better insulator than wood or aluminum. It doesn’t conduct heat or cold like aluminum – a major source
of lost heating/cooling energy. And, it doesn’t swell and shrink like wood when temperatures change. It never needs
painting and won’t show scratches, unlike aluminum or wood windows.
> Today, over 75% of replacement windows
are vinyl*. But just because a window is made of vinyl doesn’t mean it is a superior product. The design, engineering
and manufacturing of the window all help distinguish a poor window from a superior window.
> *Sabre Report 2004.
The thing to remember when considering an R-value
is that the higher the R-value number is, the greater the insulation value. As with any measure of energy efficiency, it’s
not so much what’s considered acceptable, as what is acceptable to you. Insulation in the sash and/or mainframe of a
vinyl window can significantly up the R-value of a window frame. Check for the availability of this feature when assessing
a window’s energy efficiency.
Glass is rated in R-values also – the same used to rate window frames.
The type of glass, thickness, number of panes, distance between the panes, as well as, the manner in which panes are connected,
all affect the R-value performance of the window.
This is a standard measure of heat transfer through an entire window unit. The methods
for measuring U-factor ratings were developed by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) at the request of the U.S.
Department of Energy and the Federal Trade Commission.
The lower the U-factor the better the window’s insulating
ability. A window’s U-factor is the reciprocal of its R-factor. They both measure its insulating ability. Look for windows
with low U-factors and high R-values.
There are two major types of Low-E (the ‘E’ stands for emissivity) glass: hard-coat (pyrolitic)
and vacuum-deposition (sputter). Both types block radiant heat, keeping summer’s heat outside and winter’s heat
inside. And both block the sun’s rays to some degree.
But windows made with multi-layer, vacuum deposition
(sputter coat) Low-E glass have much better visual clarity. With this type of glass you have very little haze factor which
provides almost the same clarity as clear ‘uncoated’ glass.
- Argon or Krypton gas
Air between the panes of insulating gas can be replaced with high-density
Argon or Krypton gas. This process provides windows with a both increased energy efficiency and increasing sound deadening
properties. Both Argon and Krypton are safe, odorless, colorless gases that occur naturally in our atmosphere. But, because
of their density, heat and cold do not pass through these gases as easily as through air. When Argon or Krypton gas is used
in an insulated glass system with a vacuum deposition (sputter) coat Low E glass, it creates one of the most energy efficient
windows you can buy.
Some of the same features that make a window more energy efficient can also help to significantly
cut down on noise transmission from outdoors.
- Wood grain finishes
Today’s better interior wood grain finishes are designed for a lifetime
of maintenance-free beauty. They’ve proven themselves over time to resist fading, chipping, peeling and blistering.
- Designer or decorative glass
Glass styles play an important role in the appearance and curb appeal of a home. Styles and selections will vary with each
manufacturer, but the more styles that are available to choose from, the better the protection and enhancement of the value
of a home, whatever its architectural style.
