Composite windows are the latest advancement in the replacement window industry as far as frame development. EPC, or structural foam, while relatively new to window manufacturing, has been around for decades. Ironically, EPC had its beginnings in the construction industry where strong, light weight shapes were needed. EPC was ideal, because, in addition to its innate strength, it was virtually impervious to adverse weather conditions. With technologies, machinery, and ever rising energy costs, the use of EPC composite materials for the window industry became attractive and quite viable. While it adds a slight premium to the cost of a traditional vinyl replacement window, Composite Windows and Doors boast astronger frame profile to traditional vinyl along with lifetime warranties on the paint finish. The material is completely maintenance free and offers interior woodgrain laminates to simulate a true wood window.
Composite Windows and Doors are a combination of resin, chemical additives, and modifiers. This chemical mix is processed with nitrogen and physical and chemical blowing agents between 400 and 600 degree fahrenheit. When the final shape is extruded, the material has unmatched strength and durability. Composite Windows and Doors are four times stronger than their traditional vinyl counterpart and significantly less resistant to frame expansion and contraction in varying weather conditions.
When are clients are looking for a custom color super efficient composite window, the Composite product is a perfect fit.
