An elegant approach to bring the outdoors in
Double-hung windows offer flexibility in ventilation and comfort from inside the home. Done right – with the right specialists and the best materials – double-hung windows can bring distinction and functionality to a home like no other type of window.
Built with two window panels that either slide open or swing out, double-hung windows are becoming an increasingly popular way to allow for more ventilation in a room and fuse functionality with beauty.
This functionality makes double-hung windows almost a requirement for those who enjoy the smell of fresh-cut grass while also giving you a greater amount of natural control over the temperature of a room.
We have installed Double Hung Windows for over 70 years, RIHI The Home Improvement Specialist only uses the best materials for every job. That’s why we use PROTEC Replacement Windows.
What are PROTEC Double-Hung windows?
PROTEC double-hung windows are a revolution in window craftsmanship
Made the right way, in the U.S.A.
Crafted to look like finely-milled wood, but with the durability of metal. Low-maintenance like vinyl, but lasts as long as your home will – backed by our No Hassle, No-Nonsense Warranty.
PROTEC is a material that requires no maintenance, will not fade, and will ensure peak energy efficiency for the summer and winter months. A blend of specialty PVC polymer and acrylic resins, PROTEC windows are chemically fused together to ensure maximum structural integrity
How do PROTEC windows last so long?
PROTEC’s SuperCap Prefinishing technology is a permanent guard against all forces that break windows down including:
- UV Light
- Harsh Weather Conditions
It’s with PROTEC windows and our expert picture window installers that RIHI The Home Improvement Specialist can save you money on utility bills.
- Surpasses ENERGY STAR ratings
- Composite material reduces energy transfer from inside to outside
- Compact and seamless design minimizes air flow
Rotting windows are caused by moisture being absorbed by the material. Wood, vinyl, and other common window materials are susceptible to rot.
PROTEC windows are designed so they cannot absorb moisture. For you, that means PROTEC windows will not rot, guaranteed.
Built to Last in All Weather Environments
PROTEC double-hung windows are US-built to minimize expansion and contraction in extreme temperatures. While other window materials breakdown in the summer and winter months, PROTEC windows stay sturdy and strong throughout the year.
Especially in coastal properties, where windows are subjected to high-salt air, PROTEC windows stand impervious to these effects.
