SAVE ENERGY

Most window manufacturers utilize the same type of insulated glass in all the windows they produce,

regardless of whether the windows are installed in the cold north or the hot south. Restorations® windows feature a series of high-performance glass systems engineered to provide maximum thermal efficiency and comfort in the particular region of the country where you live.

Noise Reduction Glass

Restoration’s Noise Reduction Glass (NRG) option provides superior energy efficiency and noise reduction as well — at a fraction of the cost of traditional sound abatement options. NRG glass helps to minimize the infiltration of unwanted noises (such as barking dogs, loud neighbors, lawn mowers, and air and ground traffic) into your home.

Summit Tech Glass

Summit Technology glass options are designed for homes in high altitude locations, providing a clear view with reliable energy efficiency. To achieve superior performance, traditional low-e options are combined with air filled cavities for insulation and an internal low-e coating.
