Windows and Doors / Jeld-Wen

Founded in 1960 and headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., Jeld-Wen designs, produces, and distributes an extensive range of interior and exterior doors; wood, vinyl, and aluminum windows; and related products for use in both new construction and remodeling. It uses an exclusive manufacturing process called AuraLast to ensure longer-lasting wood in its products. Unlike dip-treated wood, AuraLast uses a vacuum-pressure process to force the protective ingredients all the way to the core of the wood for virtually 100 percent penetration, the company says. Jeld-Wen is a recognized leader in manufacturing energy-efficient products and has been an Energy Star Partner since 1998.

Doors / Masonite

Masonite provides a comprehensive selection of distinctive interior and exterior door styles to complement any home or taste. Inspired by true millwork craftsmanship, every product is the result of years of research, design, engineering, and development, which begins at the Masonite Innovation Center in suburban Chicago, the largest facility of its kind in the industry, according to the company. Masonite’s dedication to a fully integrated design process helps set it apart from the competition.

Blinds Between Glass for Windows / ODL

ODL, which has more than 20 years of experience manufacturing blinds between glass, has now introduced Blink Blinds + Glass to its blinds-between-glass insulated-glass panel for windows. Available through more than 80 window manufacturers, Blink offers a convenient, easy-to-use alternative to traditional blinds. Blink is available in six blind colors (White, Tan, Sand, Espresso, Slate Gray, and Silver Moon) and custom sizes up to 80 inches. Low-E and dual-low-E glass options reduce the amount of ultraviolet and infrared light entering a home, helping keep spaces cool and boosting energy efficiency. Each panel comes with a 10-year full warranty.

Top-Hinged Roof Window / Velux 

Best suited to lofts and attics, or any room requiring that windows be placed in a low position, the Velux GPL roof window admits natural light and fresh air while maximizing outdoor views. Even when the window is closed, fresh air can circulate via a ventilation flap. A rotating sash provides easy access for cleaning the glass from the inside, and the window’s bottom latch opens to a 45-degree angle for emergency escape and rescue.

Retractable Screen Door / ODL 

In addition to using durable, long-lasting surfaces and rust-free aluminum housing, ODL’s Brisa Retractable Screen Door features the EZ-Glide Control System, which allows for smooth opening and closing, while a small locking latch ensures safety and security. Available in out-swing, in-swing, and sliding-door variations, the door is quick to install. Its outer-face mount design optimizes door width and fits most 32-to-36-inch sizes. The screen can also be customized to fit smaller door sizes between 28 and 31 ½ inches with just two easy-to-make cuts. To prevent walk-through, the door includes subtle stripes woven into the screen.

Vinyl Folding Doors / LaCantina Doors

Featuring contemporary styling and a sleek look, the LaCantina Vinyl Folding Door System’s narrow 2 15∕16-inch stile and rail profile allows for more glass and admits more light. Available in standard folding door sizes up to 8 feet tall and 18 feet wide in a range of popular configurations, doors can also be ordered in custom sizes. Standard color options include white or tan, and door hardware comes in a stainless or bronze finish. Concealed multipoint locking provides security, and standard dual-glazed low-E glass improves energy efficiency.

Wood Windows / Jeld-Wen

Jeld-Wen’s EpicVue windows are characterized by clean lines, slim profiles, and square interior detailing, providing a contemporary feel. A thick, aluminum-extruded sash supports the pane, allowing for more glass exposure—with direct-set windows as wide as 10 feet—while also offering the most energy-efficient standard glass on the market, according to the company. Durability is provided by the use of AuraLast, a patented wood product that resists rotting, water saturation, and termites.
