Your home's windows are not only supposed to keep the elements out and help you stay comfortable inside, they also need to add to the beauty of your home as well. This is why C&T Siding offers Integrity Windows from the Marvin Family of Brands. Integrity Windows provide many benefits for homeowners because they're made of Ultrex, an innovative material that changed the way people think about windows.
1. Ultrex fiberglass
More than 20 years ago, Marvin introduced Ultrex, a pultruded fiberglass that brought unprecedented innovation to the industry.
Ultrex windows are stress tested to keep you safe and secure. Vinyl windows have a tensile strength of 7.0 and vinyl/wood composite has a tensile strength of 5.675. Ultrex windows have a tensile strength of 40.14, making them stronger than other windows including vinyl or a vinyl and wood composite.
Every metal bends and flexes. While you want your windows to bends some, if they bend too much, it's likely that they'll break if the windows have too much give and flex. This is why Marvin tests their Ultrex material to determine how it stacks up against other material. Vinyl and vinyl/wood composite windows have a flexing strength of 385 and 807.6, respectively. Ultrex windows have a flexing strength of 3000.
4. Paint finish
The Ultrex paint finish is thicker than the competitor's finish. It won't chip, dent, peel or crack. You can even paint over Ultrex so you can completely change the look of the outside of your home. The Ultrex acrylic finish provides long-term durability and color retention.
5. Dual pane glass
Single pane windows that are unglazed simply don't have the same efficiency as Ultrex windows. Ultrex windows with Low E coating can help reduce the heat loss that's typically experienced through the windows. Using Ultrex windows could save you as much as 34 percent in utility costs in a cold climate.
Ultrex windows are made of fiberglass, a material that is used for bridges, ladders, guardrails, hard hats and boats. In addition, Ultrex windows won't corrode or leak and they resist rot.
With all these benefits of Integrity Windows made of Ultrex, it's easy to see why C&T Siding offers this line of replacement windows to our customers. Contact us today to schedule an appointment to talk about getting Integrity Windows for your home.
