The things that set our windows and doors apart have big implications for longevity and performance. For starters, the exteriors of our clad wood windows and patio doors are fully encased in heavy-duty, extruded aluminum that’s twice as thick as roll-form cladding. It only takes one hailstorm to demonstrate the benefit of this. Although more expensive to manufacture, all but our anodized collection is AAMA 2604 or AAMA 2605 powder coated for greater surface hardness, scratch resistance and color retention, than ordinary liquid paint.
