Windows determine how a home looks to the world. They also determine how the world looks to the people inside. Here in Michigan, Builders FirstSource wants both views to be absolutely perfect—the view of your home and the view from your home.
Whether your latest project involves new construction, a remodel or replacement windows, we have the quality brands you want, brands like Andersen and JELD-WEN. We also have the experience and expertise to help you with what can sometimes be overwhelming choices—especially when the final result must be a careful blend of pleasing architectural aesthetics, functionality, an ability to withstand Michigan’s weather, and your own personal tastes and style.
Both Andersen and JELD-WEN manufacture a full range of window types—single- and double-hung, awning, sliding and gliding, casement, bay and bow, and garden. They also offer extensive selections of fixed windows shaped to either stand alone—an oval or arch, for example—or add interest and dimension to another type of window—transom panes, for example. You can even order special, custom-designed creations to match restoration or historical architectural features.
Select from vinyl-clad wood or aluminum windows with maintenance-free exteriors and beautiful interiors that match your décor and furnishings. Or, check out the new composites and hybrids that offer a little bit of the best of all materials. Each of our manufacturers has developed their own series of windows with energy-efficient features, technological advances or distinctively artistic touches, for example:
Thin coatings allow light to pass through the glass, limit infrared and ultraviolet rays from outside, and reflect interior temperatures to maintain comfortable conditions inside.
ENERGY STAR Qualifications
In northern climes like Michigan, the heat-loss or U-Factor should be less than or equal to 0.27.
Coatings reduce sound transmission.
Glass still allows light to pass, but textures or patterns offer privacy.
Colonial or diamond window grilles are only the start. Instead, try prairie, a fractional grille or a custom design.
Classic and artisan designs incorporate stained and leaded glass motifs.
