If your home could use some new windows, rest assured that nothing improves the appearance and property value of a home faster than window replacement. Single hung windows create a classic, timeless appearance that looks beautiful with an array of architectural styles. Replacing your windows is exciting – it’s like having a whole new home (but without the move).
PGT creates lovely single hung windows and they throw in a lot of options, such as custom grid choices and glass tints. PGT single hung windows are available in aluminum and vinyl to fit any budget.
Aluminum Single Hung
Now here’s a durable window that’s built to last. For increased energy efficiency, PGT uses double weather stripping and interlocking meeting rails to keep the weather out and your energy bills low. The windows come in various sizes and styles, and all are custom-fit to your exact specifications.
Vinyl Single Hung
The vinyl single hung windows are offered in two very similar categories: new construction series 2100 and new construction & replacement windows series 400. Both series come in various widths and lengths.
2100 series features insulating glass and an attractive wood-emulating appearance that starts at the trim and ends with the divided lights. It also comes with a lifetime warranty on the frame, insulated glass components and hardware. The fixed glass is interior-glazed and sashes are exterior-glazed.
The 400 series offers strong, durable aluminum-reinforced vinyl frames and insulating glass. All windows are exterior-glazed and silicone-glazed for greater sealant protection.
Both Aluminum & Vinyl Feature:
400 Series Tax Credit
The 400 series single hung windows qualify for the governmental energy tax credits through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The incentive is a 30% tax credit up to $1,500 per household on energy efficient home improvements (not including labor costs) made in 2009 and 2010.
2100 Series Energy Star Compliance
The 2100 series comes standard with double-strength insulating glass, Low-E coating and Super Spacer technology that all add up to Energy Star compliance.
In addition to improving your home’s overall appearance and saving money on your energy bills, you’ll sleep tight at night knowing you did your research and found the best possible single hung windows for both your home’s style and your pocket book.
