Custom design your windows to meet your needs!
Another important consideration when buying windows and doors is the fresh, clean and beautiful appearance that you can admire — without spending hours on maintenance. You can choose many different window styles that will fit your home’s aesthetics perfectly. Enhancing the look of your home’s exterior and interior with DuraShield V’s bright, clean windows.
Our popular Double Hung window has two operable sashes that allow cool breezes in during those crisp cool morning and evenings. The tilt-in sashes are simple to operate and allow you to clean the outside of the glass from the comfort of the interior of your home. The special-formula vinyl frames can be cleaned with most cleaners and continue to be clean and bright for years.
Our Sliders and Casement windows allow the same cool refreshing breezes in. Their styles give a different look to standard windows providing a unique aesthetic to your home. Picture windows give you an unobstructed view of your surroundings allowing you to see Florida’s natural beauty from the comfort of your home.
You can also choose Neat™ glass which is pretty darn neat. That’s what homeowners think. A little sun, a little rain and — voilà — clean windows, thanks to Neat™. What’s more, you get all the performance benefits of our low-e glass — a cooler home in the summer and a warmer one in winter. Finally, here’s one more Neat™ advantage — Neat™ allows more visible light transmittance and has less exterior reflectance than ordinary low-e glass. Sounds neat to us.
The science of Neat™. It’s not magic but close to it. A variety of different technologies go into manufacturing Neat™ glass. But the key technology — the one that helps windows stay cleaner longer — is the super-thin coating applied. Using a patented double-sputtering process, applying an invisible, durable and permanent coating of titanium dioxide and silicon dioxide.
Silicon Dioxide makes Neat™ glass exceptionally smooth. In fact, it’s much smoother than ordinary glass. So water disperses evenly, “sheets off” and evaporates quickly, greatly reducing water spotting. Titanium dioxide reacts chemically with the UV rays, causing organic materials that are on the glass to decompose. It works even on cloudy days, as 80 percent of UV radiation gets through cloud cover. Then when it rains, the decomposed dirt is rinsed away, leaving the glass almost spotless. Result?
Homeowners can spend less time washing windows and more time enjoying the view.
Internal grids will give your DuraShield Windows the look and feel of true divided-lite windows—without the hassles! Because they’re between the glass panes, these grids allow for easy cleaning.

U-Factor is a measure of rate of heat loss through a product and shows how well a fenestration product insulates.
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient is a measure of rate of heat gain that passes through a product and shows how well the product blocks heat caused by sunlight. Solar heat gain is particularly important during the summer season because it reduces the time cooling systems must run.
Visible Transmittance measures the amount of light the product lets through. The higher the VT, the more light you see.
Air Leakage is a measure of rate at which air passes through spaces in the window. It is measured in
cubic feet of air passing through one square foot of window area per minute; the lower the AL value, the less air that will be transferred through the product.

ENERGY STAR certified windows help reduce energy costs, increase a home’s comfort, and protect against UV damage. These products are also better for the environment—because they reduce green house gas emissions—and for the country because they reduce America’s dependency on foreign oil. In fact, installing ENERGY STAR certified windows and doors shrinks energy biils-and carbon footprints-by 7 to 15 percent compared to non-qualified products.
