Why is polymer spacer used in window panes instead of aluminum?
We provide a heavy-duty non-conductive polymer spacer, which increases the R-value of the window. A polymer spacer is better than aluminum spacer because it does not conduct energy, which leaves the inside pane at room temperature by eliminating condensation inside the home.

How do brick to brick installments work?
Brick mold, on the exterior of the house, acts as the trim around the window which meets the exterior siding. Window brick mold is an attachment to the frame of the window itself which adds an extra barrier to exterior weather and elements. These installments prevent water from flowing inside the house. The available mold sizes are 0, 1 inch, 1 ½ inch, and 2 inches.
