Vinyl Windows are no longer a cheap alternative to wood windows. Vinyl windows have become the window of choice from architects to designers to homeowners. Vinyl windows have developed from humble beginnings with limited options of shapes and colours to now being state of the art and having the greatest amount of options of any type of window.
Vinyl windows are constructed in all shapes and sizes, any colour and style and for any application. Vinyl windows provide you the best of all worlds, maximum energy efficiency, with very little maintenance and with styles to enhance any room and home. Vinyl windows can also be manufactured with a simulated wood grain to enhance traditional rooms such as libraries and living rooms.
As part of our vision for growth with quality control, every effort has been made to bring the extrusion process “in house” working with The Windows Design Group which includes its own PVC extrusion facility capable of making the most detailed shapes with resin from PolyOne.
Our PolyOne is a superior PVC, With costly additives such as Titanium Dioxide. It is designed for long-term durability as a premium building product. This formulation is completely lead-free to protect homeowners from health hazards.
Our virtually in-house process has allowed Encore working with VWD to offer the greatest variety of colour options and to provide excellent service and delivery of products that many manufacturers cannot afford to keep in stock.
Wall thickness of every Encore window with the VWD extrusion exceeds the standard set by The Vinyl Institute, A Division of The Society of the Plastics Industry Inc. Our research and development department never rests continually striving to improve our windows and offer even more options.
Vinyl windows were first developed in the European market. The typical style in Europe is known as a “Tilt and Turn” as a description of its operating characteristics. These heavy framed windows did not achieve popularity in North America where vertical and horizontal sliding windows traditionally dominated the market.
