What are those THINGS between the glass?

   Windows are no longer just a no-frills, single pane of glass. There are all kinds of technological advances in the window industry that involve energy efficiency, noise reduction, safety, and weather protection. Glass can be treated with a coating to enhance energy efficiency, or tempered, to make it stronger, but, when considering replacement windows, it's also important to look at those things between the panes of glass. Those things can truly enhance your window experience. 

   Spacers refer to an objects that separate and uphold the space between the glass surfaces of insulating glass.
 
   Most Simonton windows and doors possess spacers placed between the glass that are constructed of thermally resistant materials that can help prevent temperature transmission through the window. Simonton uses several systems to achieve higher levels of energy efficiency, including the Intercept® Spacer System and the Super Spacer® System.

From Our Customers

We wanted to get quotes from several contractors in the area so we contacted FAS. Their price is a little higher but they were better in answering questions and getting back with us. The sales rep made an appointment and he showed up when he said he would. He did a very good job of explaining the product lines that they had and why they were better quality than what we had in our 25-year old house. He followed up with us, answered our questions quickly and he's gotten the paperwork to us so that we can get the energy credit from Duke Energy. We're very happy with him. We got new windows for our home and they normally come with screens but we were able to get half screens where we wanted in full screens and they fitted the windows to all the openings exactly. My husband was really happy with the installation team and the quality is very good so far.
