Double Hung Windows
The design of the Elite Double-Hung Window combines great looks with world-class performance, offering you a dramatic upgrade as replacement windows or initial elegance for your new home. Custom built to your opening sizes, Elite Double-Hung Windows allow you to recreate the old-fashioned look of paned windows without their high maintenance and low thermal efficiency. Sashes tilt-in for easy glass cleaning from inside the home.
Featuring frame and sash corners fusion-welded into a solid unit, the Elite Double-Hung Window provides a permanent seal against air and water penetration. And since the windows are made of high-quality, multi-chambered vinyl extrusions, with a superior finish, they outperform almost every other replacement window on the market and look new for years to come.
A full interlock at the meeting rails and a commercial-type stepped jamb provide added security and strength to the overall unit. The stepped sill gives superior protection against outside elements. Dual vent locks/night latches also provide additional security. Triple woolpile weatherstripping with a center Mylar fin controls air and water infiltration.
