    Introduction

    Windows and doors connect the interior of your home to the outside and your surroundings. They allow sunlight to fill your rooms and they give you views of the scenes around you. Open a window and feel a fresh breeze. Open a door and step outside.

    Sun clad wood windows and doors are designed to highlight your home by giving you the views and access you want while providing protection from the elements that you want to keep outside. Our aluminum-clad exteriors guard against the seasonal assault of heat and cold, wind and rain, snow and ice, sealing away the harsh elements while allowing in light from the sun and a gentle breeze when you choose to open your home to them.

    This guide will give you insight into the products and options that we build and the benefits that they can provide you and your home. Explore these pages and discover some of the advantages of Sun windows and doors. Whether you are getting ready to build a new home or remodel an existing one, Sun would be honored to be part of your project.

    About Sun

    Sun Windows, Incorporated is the exclusive manufacturer of SunClad™ wood windows and doors, as well as Sun Vinyl windows. Our products are built in the U.S.A., at our factory located in Owensboro, Kentucky.

    Sun’s heritage extends back to 1930, when V.E. Anderson, Sr. developed a self-storing wood storm window and began selling it door-to-door. Over the years, the company has evolved through changes in locations, name and product offerings to become a leading regional manufacturer with a focus on innovation and quality.

    Sun has chosen to limit our area of service to a geographic region within 500 miles of our factory. This increases Sun’s flexibility in providing the best possible products, in a timely fashion, at a competitive price. Our regional focus also means that many of our suppliers are close to our location. This can have a positive economic and environmental impact, helping to achieve additional credit for LEED certified projects.

    The Sun brand name may not be as well known as many of our big-name competitors. That is due to the fact that we don’t spend a lot of money on name-recognition advertising campaigns. Rather, we have chosen to invest those dollars in designing and building our products. When you choose to buy a Sun product, you are primarily paying for the expense of product development and production, not advertising. Yes, we do spend some money advertising, like this product guide, but the bulk of the product price is in the product itself. Our competitors, whose names you know well, have to pay for that name recognition. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it means they either charge substantially more for a comparable product or they reduce the product cost, which often means they reduce the quality of the product. The big advantage for us is that we can offer a product of superior quality at an excellent price.

    Applications

    New Construction New Construction projects are either new buildings or new additions to an existing structure.

    As far as windows and doors are concerned, the primary focus is on the fact that these projects

    require products that are prepared to fit newly framed openings. Often, these openings can

    be prepared to fit standard sized windows and doors, which saves the customer the extra

    expense of custom sized units. Although, if needed, custom sized units can still be built to

    meet the special needs of a project.

    Renovation Renovation projects include replacing windows and doors in already finished buildings. It also

    includes rebuilding or remodeling projects where windows and doors may be added to a

    structure. These projects can vary greatly in their installation requirements. Replac
