Tilt & Turn Windows

Tilt and turn windows are European style windows that are both stylish and functional in a home. These types of windows work well in contemporary, rustic, modern, and other styles of homes and work by tilting open at the top or swinging open like a door. One handle conveniently and easily operates the window with both of these two options. They also offer unique ventilation benefits and look great in various rooms of a home.

Tempered Glass is often used in bathrooms for safety reasons. The panels are heated and then cooled rapidly in a controlled environment, making the glass several times stronger than regular glass.

Tempered Glass is ideal for use over bathtubs and in showers where if glass were to shatter, it will break into small pieces so as not to harm any occupants. Tempered glass is used in cars for the same reason.
