a traditional style with
ventilation flexibility. Both
sashes open — a little or a lot.
To open the windows, you
raise or lower each sash.
For natural ventilation control, lower the top sash to let the warm air that rises to the
ceiling outside, or raise the bottom sash to let cool air
flow inside. The windows are designed for tiliting the top or bottom sash for easy cleaning.
AWNING WINDOWS
Available in the UltraWeld® series.
Awning windows easily open
and shut with one handle.
They are good for rainy
climates, because they can
be open during a gentle rain without letting water in and giving you full air flow.
SLIDER/GLIDER WINDOWS
Available in two series:
ThermalWeld® | UltraWeld®
A sliding window features easy brass roller glides, making in friendly to operate. The profile has clean lines for a streamlined look. Both sashes can be
removed easily out of the frame for cleaning. Slider (or glider) type windows have two sliding sashes that slide right or left (horizontally) to make this window very easy to manage.
CASEMENT WINDOWS
Available in the UltraWeld® series.
A great choice for those who
desire easy operation with
no reaching - they open and
close outward with the quick
turn of a handle, and the lock
system secures the window
in two places with one easy-
to-reach lever. The single
sash of a casement window
also gives you a clear view
to the outdoors.
BAYS, BOWS & GARDEN WINDOWS
Available in the UltraWeld® series.
Bay and bow windows can accentuate a view by dividing
it into different planes.
They also bring in more light
and give a feeling of open
space to a room.
Garden windows are designed
for beauty and functionality.
You can grow plants and
flowers indoors.

How to Measure Your Window

Window Tips & Maintenance

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN A REPLACEMENT WINDOW?
Your installation company should review all interior products and exterior products that are being used for installing your windows, so you can understand your difference when making the right choice.

Because all application procedures can be different,
be sure that your installation company is explaining
all that's included in your installation, including the condition of your jams and what special preparation
is needed for your new window application.
Remember, it's not just your windows that you need to
be concerned about, it's also the finished and exposed products that need additional protection against
harsh changing climates. Especially the exterior trim
and caulking around the exterior of the windows is
usually the area where most wear occurs—before
your window unit is compromised. Flexible caulk joints combined with a drainage path for moisture keep vulnerable trim elements rot-free.
REPLACEMENT WINDOWS: 10 THINGS TO CONSIDER

1. YOUR BUDGET
When choosing a new window, it is important
to know the true value of your replacement windows, vinyl windows, fiberglass windows, wood windows, or aluminum windows. Depending upon what grade or style you’re looking for, it can make a difference in pricing, features, benefits and performance. New Horizons
offers quality assurance window installation services
at competitive prices, with exceptional value with guaranteed performance, guaranteed professional installations, and guaranteed warranties that are the
best in the industry.

2. YOUR HOME'S STYLE
An array of random window shapes and styles might
work on certain homes, but most homes are much more attractive when each additional or replacement component remains true to the original architecture.
If you want to stay true to your home’s original architecture, choose windows that are the same size
and style you already have. You should choose handles, hinges, and locks that are similar to other ornamental metals in the home. Keeping your replacement windows
in harmony with the original architecture of the home
will also help save money by eliminating the need to
make adjustments the home to fit the replacement windows. In some cases, altering the appearance of a certain architectural style can also decrease the value
of the home.

3. EXTERIOR WINDOW CAPPING
Be sure that metal smooth aluminum or PVC material
is installed over existing exterior wood window trim
(and open voided areas throughout the exterior window openings). The smooth aluminum is all aluminum and
the PVC is an aluminum base with a PVC coating
over the aluminum with a wood grain texture look.
Our company recommends using the smooth verses
the PVC. The PVC has a tendency to collect dirt
more often due to the wood grain texture grooves.

Having metal installed over wood trim and sealed with
the proper caulking will prevent air and water infiltration. Be aware of the other window companies selling windows without any metal trim work. If they're not capping the windows, they're just caulking up against the old exterior wood. The old wood will not secure the application of
the new caulking. within time. The caulking at the base of the old wood will un bond itself letting water and air infiltration in, causing harm to your windows and walls.

Important metalcapping detail differences include: strong manufacturer, thickness/gauge, colors matching window units, UV protection, corrosion resistance, chalk and fade resistance. Our company only use high quality metal capping materials for your application.

4. CAULKING
Our application includes quality interior paintable
caulking and exterior siliconized caulking. Our select window lines include matching color caulking and matching aluminum window trim.

5. PRICE AND QUALITY DIFFERENCES
Be aware of the quality metal and caulking products being used throughout home improvement companies. The difference between inferior and quality of products
can be as much as 50 - 75% difference in pricing.

6. WINDOW OPENING INSULATION
New Horizons insulates every window we install!
Our application includes using fiberglass and/or spray window foam insulation around the perimeter of the window and voided areas throughout the openings.

7. WARRANTIES
Most window manufactures today offer limited lifetime warranties. Most manufactures also have a service charge fee to replace the part and/or service.
Be aware, most home improvement companies and window manufactures will not go in depth concerning
how the warranty really works.

Service fees can range from $75.00 dollars up to $225.00 dollars for homeowners. Another concern is who is actually doing the service work. Several window manufactures leave it up to the lumber yards, retail stores, outside sales force, window distributors or home improvement companies to service your product.

8. A SAFE AND CLEAN WORK AREA
Our professional applicators perform all the neccesary prep work to protect your living areas. New Horizons takes pride in a clean work environment and knows the value of a clean home. We will take all neccessary precautions to protect your home to the full extent during our application. When complete, our applicators clean the work area and remove all job related debris.

9. HAULING AWAY DEBRIS
New Horizons takes the time to remove all
job related debris from your property.

10. FEDERAL TAX CREDIT
Nearly all new windows manufactured today
qualify for the Federal Government Tax Credit.
