Weather Shield Windows & Doors

The Aesthetics casement windows from Weather Shield are available in both aluminum-clad and wood exteriors. The aluminum-clad version has two profiles: colonial and putty glazed. The colonial has rounded accents and the putty glaze features sharper angles. Both offer a simulated divided lite bar made in 7/8-, 1 3/8- and 2-inch profiles.

The latest electrochromatic glass option for skylights from Velux allows homeowners to electronically control the amount of light and heat entering a room. The system uses the company's SageGlass glazing. Made out of multiple layers of ceramic film and measuring only 1/50 of the thickness of a hair, the SageGlass uses a low-voltage DC current that causes the electrochromatic film to darken and uses as much energy as a 40-watt incandescent bulb.

ViWinTech Windows & Doors

The 4100R series of replacement windows now features a heat-reflective clay coating and is made with a white interior and tan exterior. The 4100R from ViWinTech has a flat two-toned grid between the panes. The windows have several color, glazing, screen and mullion options and feature the company's Emax Plus high-performance, energy-efficient glass.
