Vinylite Windows divided its window products into six series: Diplomat Series Windows, Casement Series Windows, Standard Series Windows, Replacement Series Windows, Special Shape Windows, and Bay and Bow Windows. Each window series has its own benefits for the homeowner, but the company prides itself particularly in creating windows standard with some trusted key features.
All Vinylite windows come with a fusion welded mainframe construction that is known in the industry to be very reliable and durable. These windows have metal reinforced mullions for enhanced strength, full perimeter nailing fin, integral J-channel accessory, and brickmold accessory. For energy efficiency, the windows utilize three-fourth-inch of warm-edge insulated glass, which is low emissivity and filled with argon gas. For security, they have a multi-point locking system that is preventive of any kind of forced entry by hand or tool. Additionally, all windows have a weep management system that draws water down the bottom rail to prevent moisture build-up inside the sashes. These features make these windows very effective in managing temperature inside the home, making it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Aside from insulation, sound reduction is also provided by the inert gas filled within the windows’ glass.
Vinylite windows are distinguishable by their simple and clean design. The traditional look is maintained in the Diplomat Series, but all windows have enhanced structural performance with the combined structure of the mullions and the fusion welded frames. The folding handles in the Casement Series create no interference with blinds, while the night latches in the Replacement Series give limitation as to how far the sashes can be opened. These windows have a continuous frame construction, making them look seamless and clean. Also, they allow easy cleaning with the tilt-in sash. Colors available are white, almond, and clay, while wood options for the exterior jambs include oak, maple, pine, cherry, and birch.
Vinylite Windows offers different size configurations for its windows, so every home certainly can be protected and can reduce energy costs. The vinyl frames and sashes are guaranteed against peeling, chipping, cracking, blistering, and pitting. In case the hardware parts fail, the company sells replacement parts at half the original company price. The insulated glass can be replaced for the first ten years without charge, but charges are applied accordingly once the ten-year duration lapsed. Vinylite Windows gives a limited lifetime warranty covering all materials, but it does not apply to damage caused by misuse, improper installation, and other external forces like fire, hail, flood, insects, vandalism, and accident.
