Windows For Your Home

Awning Windows

The trademark of awning windows is that they can be opened for ventilation even during a rainstorm. Awning windows are hinged at the top and open outward. Your awning windows are probably installed to coincide with other windows like on top of a picture window for example.

Key Features
  • Available in a variety of color options so you can match the aesthetics of your home.
  • Available in a variety of glass options (including Turtle glass) that are designed to meet building codes and provide additional privacy.
  • Impact and non-impact (all rated for Gulf Coast wind speeds) which protect your home from storms and help with energy efficiency.
  • Installed according to local building codes and manufacturer specifications so your new windows, doors, and other products are installed correctly. They protect your home from storms, they help with energy efficiency, they reduce exterior noise, and protect against intruders.
  • Easy to operate, functional, and low-maintenance solutions while lasting decades.
  • Superior security and energy-efficient, saving you money and protecting your family.
  • A variety of grids/mullion styles that allow you to customize your windows to fit your preferences.
Bay Windows

Having high-efficiency bay windows is crucial because the units are predominantly so large. Bay windows are big to provide a great view and natural light, but that also means they are a big risk for energy loss. Bay windows can be stationary or operable, but a focal point of an interior design.

Folkers can build bay windows for your home, even if the window is not currently a bay window.

Key Features
  • Available in a variety of color options so you can match the aesthetics of your home.
  • Available in a variety of glass options (including Turtle glass) that are designed to meet building codes and provide additional privacy.
  • Impact and non-impact (all rated for Gulf Coast wind speeds) which protect your home from storms and help with energy efficiency.
  • Installed according to local building codes and manufacturer specifications so your new windows, doors, and other products are installed correctly. They protect your home from storms, they help with energy efficiency, they reduce exterior noise, and protect against intruders.
  • Easy to operate, functional, and low-maintenance solutions while lasting decades.
  • Superior security and energy-efficient, saving you money and protecting your family.
  • A variety of grids/mullion styles that allow you to customize your windows to fit your preferences.
Casement Windows

Defined by their side mounting hinges, casement windows crank open to provide a full opening. This is one of the major benefits of these windows compared to vertically sliding double hung windows. Casement windows not only provide an unobstructed view when open, they offer the most ventilation of any window.

Key Features
  • Available in a variety of color options so you can match the aesthetics of your home.
  • Available in a variety of glass options (including Turtle glass) that are designed to meet building codes and provide additional privacy.
  • Impact and non-impact (all rated for Gulf Coast wind speeds) which protect your home from storms and help with energy efficiency.
  • Installed according to local building codes and manufacturer specifications so your new windows, doors, and other products are installed correctly. They protect your home from storms, they help with energy efficiency, they reduce exterior noise, and protect against intruders.
  • Easy to operate, functional, and low-maintenance solutions while lasting decades.
  • Superior security and energy-efficient, saving you money and protecting your family.
  • A variety of grids/mullion styles that allow you to customize your windows to fit your preferences.
Single-Hung Windows

Very similar to double hung except that only the bottom sash slides up vertically. The major advantage of single hung windows is that they are more energy efficient than the double hung models.

Single-hung windows are typically less expensive than double-hung windows due to fewer working parts.

Key Features
  • Available in a variety of color options so you can match the aesthetics of your home.
  • Available in a variety of glass options (including Turtle glass) that are designed to meet building codes and provide additional privacy.
  • Impact and non-impact (all rated for Gulf Coast wind speeds) which protect your home from storms and help with energy efficiency.
  • Installed according to local building codes and manufacturer specifications so your new windows, doors, and other products are installed correctly. They protect your home from storms, they help with energy efficiency, they reduce exterior noise, and protect against intruders.
  • Easy to operate, functional, and low-maintenance solutions while lasting decades.
  • Superior security and energy-efficient, saving you money and protecting your family.
  • A variety of grids/mullion styles that allow you to customize your windows to fit your preferences.
Double-Hung Windows

As close to the definition of a ‘traditional’ window as you’ll see. Double hung windows feature two panes that can slide up or down. It’s more common to ‘open’ the window by sliding the bottom portion up, but there are benefits to bring the top pane down most notably being easier to clean.

Key Features
  • Available in a variety of color options so you can match the aesthetics of your home.
  • Available in a variety of glass options (including Turtle glass) that are designed to meet building codes and provide additional privacy.
  • Impact and non-impact (all rated for Gulf Coast wind speeds) which protect your home from storms and help with energy efficiency.
  • Installed according to local building codes and manufacturer specifications so your new windows, doors, and other products are installed correctly. They protect your home from storms, they help with energy efficiency, they reduce exterior noise, and protect against intruders.
  • Easy to operate, functional, and low-maintenance solutions while lasting decades.
  • Superior security and energy-efficient, saving you money and protecting your family.
  • A variety of grids/mullion styles that allow you to customize your windows to fit your preferences.
Picture Windows

A picture window is stationary, so you don’t get the ventilation that you do with other window types. However, picture windows provide a bountiful source of natural light, offer up an unobstructed natural view, and are energy efficient because of the fact that they don’t open.

Key Features
  • Available in a variety of color options so you can match the aesthetics of your home.
  • Available in a variety of glass options (including Turtle glass) that are designed to meet building codes and provide additional privacy.
  • Impact and non-impact (all rated for Gulf Coast wind speeds) which protect your home from storms and help with energy efficiency.
  • Installed according to local building codes and manufacturer specifications so your new windows, doors, and other products are installed correctly. They protect your home from storms, they help with energy efficiency, they reduce exterior noise, and protect against intruders.

  • Superior security and energy-efficient, saving you money and protecting your family.
  • A variety of grids/mullion styles that allow you to customize your windows to fit your preferences.
Sliding Windows

Used in openings that are wider than they are tall. Sliding windows open horizontally and one of the major advantages is that they don’t require gravity to stay open. Single or double hung windows stay ‘up’ by springs and pulleys whereas sliding windows sit comfortably in their casement.

Key Features
  • Available in a variety of color options so you can match the aesthetics of your home.

Windows

Folkers windows are proudly Made in the USA and designed for the Gulf Coast.
Having new windows installed is one of the best investments a homeowner can make. It’s a project that offers a multitude of benefits that range from increasing comfort by eliminating drafts to improving the exterior curb appeal of your home. Of course, modern windows also offer a huge upgrade in energy efficiency to older windows as well.
The energy efficiency aspect is the main reason why many homeowners opt for products from Folkers. There’s no comparison between an old single-pane glass window and the modern double or triple-paned units with insulating gas in between the panels. Your utility bills will legitimately drop when heated or cooled air doesn’t escape through the window glass – in this regard the windows are arguably the most vulnerable area of the house when it comes to energy loss.
When you are in the market for new home windows, you need to first understand the different types of windows that are installed in your home. The most popular types include:
  • Casement Windows – defined by their side mounting hinges, casement windows crank open to provide a full opening. This is one of the major benefits of these windows compared to vertically sliding double hung windows. Casement windows not only provide an unobstructed view when open, they offer the most ventilation of any window.
  • Double Hung Windows – as close to the definition of a ‘traditional’ window as you’ll see. Double hung windows feature two panes that can slide up or down. It’s more common to ‘open’ the window by sliding the bottom portion up, but there are benefits to bring the top pane down most notably being easier to clean.
  • Single Hung – very similar to double hung except that only the bottom sash slides up vertically. The major advantage of single hung windows is that they are more energy efficient than the double hung models.
  • Sliding Windows – used in openings that are wider than they are tall. Sliding windows open horizontally and one of the major advantages is that they don’t require gravity to stay open. Single or double hung windows stay ‘up’ by springs and pulleys whereas sliding windows sit comfortably in their casement.
  • Bay Windows – having high-efficiency bay windows is crucial because the units are predominantly so large. Bay windows are big to provide a great view and natural light, but that also means they are a big risk for energy loss. Bay windows are stationary, but a focal point of an interior design.

When searching for replacement windows from Folkers, it’s absolutely important to know what type of window that you need installed. However, your options differ even more once you start scouring the market for these individual types. The material, for example, is a huge factor in energy efficiency, maintenance, and appearance. The type of window materials we offer include:
  • Vinyl – Natural insulation from the use of PVC which has expanded thermal properties. Vinyl is affordable, but at the same time, an elegant choice of window material. Vinyl windows require very little maintenance and will last for decades. Vinyl windows are the best option for the Gulf Coast market and environment.
  • Wood – An ideal choice for older, rustic homes, there is no material that matches the allure of wood, but also requires staining and repainting. Wood is not a great choice on the Gulf Coast due to humidity and related rot.
  • Wood Clad – Since wood is such a vulnerable material to exterior elements, wood clad windows have become popular for their rich, grainy look on the inside, while having a protective vinyl, fiberglass, or aluminum barrier on the outside.
  • Fiberglass – A material that maintains its integrity longer, thanks to the ability of fiberglass to avoid expansion and contraction in weather changes. Modern manufacturing methods can even emulate the look of wood but without the maintenance requirements.
  • Aluminum – Like other aluminum products, windows can both be made of, and turned in to, recyclable materials. Aluminum is also a very thermally resilient product that helps block out cold weather (and keep heat in) via the frame itself.

 

Now that you’ve got the basics down of what you need and in what form you need it – the next step is to find out which exact windows are right for you. Give us a call for more information or a free estimate.

Folkers also offers a variety of impact windows, historic wood windows, and more.
