Windows

Vinyl windows come in a variety of styles and sizes. SoftLite’s got you covered with an extensive line of products designed to meet your every need. Choose from the vinyl window styles below to begin browsing our collection of products.

As a pioneer in vinyl windows, eight-time Partner of the Year winner, and six-time Sustained Excellence winner, SoftLite is proud to offer a wide variety of styles to suit any budget and aesthetic sensibility. Our company’s founders began to manufacture vinyl frames in 1953, back when popular opinion still favored wood as the primary construction material for home windows. Modern science has proven that vinyl far outperforms wood, and even aluminum, as an energy-efficient material for window frames. Best of all, vinyl enables those who value the traditional look of woodgrain to enjoy the appearance of wood along with the energy-saving benefits and maintenance-free ease of vinyl window frames.   

We're proud to offer a wide variety of window styles! Click on a style or scroll down to learn about each one's features.

Single Hung

Single-hung windows incorporate two sashes, one fixed and one that slides up and down. Although most homeowners prefer double-hung windows with two operating sashes, single hung windows are a beautiful, more practical choice for some homes. SoftLite’s single-hung windows are ideal for homeowners who prefer this operating style, because they will enhance the beauty of any home ‒ yet are built to provide decades of thermal efficiency, security, durability, and easy operation, like all SoftLite vinyl windows.

Single Hung

Double Hung

Double Hung

Double-hung windows are the most popular style manufactured by SoftLite ‒ and, in fact, are the most-used window throughout the country. A double-hung is the classic residential window, composed of a set of vertical sashes that both slide up and down. What is immediately apparent about a SoftLite double-hung window is its stylish beauty. What might not be so easy to see – until you get your next power bill – is how energy efficient SoftLite double-hung windows are. In fact, SoftLite’s double-hung designs are the most energy-efficient in the industry, as well as the highest-performing.

Casement

Casements are appealing both in new contemporary homes and in older style Prairie and Tudor homes. Like other styles of windows, the casement window can be installed as a single unit, or grouped together.

Picture

Picture

What is a picture window? How are they different from a normal window? Picture windows are appropriately named, because they are large, fixed panes with low profile frames to maximize your view. Since they’re fixed panes, they are stationary, and can’t move or open.

Sliding

Sliding windows from SoftLite are like double-hung windows turned 90 degrees horizontally. Sliders are ideal for homes with relatively low ceilings, but with plenty of horizontal space along the wall. In addition, a sliding window has a more contemporary appearance than the colonial-style double-hung, so this is ideal if you happen to prefer the modern look.

Awning

Awning

Awning windows are hinged at the top and swing outward from the bottom. They glide open and shut with the turn of one easy-to-reach handle. Awning windows from SoftLite are often placed above or below other windows to add architectural interest and light.

Bay

Let your imagination run free with bay windows from SoftLite, which are customizable with countless combinations of window styles, colors, and energy-efficient glass options. A bay window actually is a set of windows arranged together in a pattern that extends outward from the home. The pattern includes three panels, like a triptych in a Renaissance cathedral. How those three panels are composed is completely up to you, and that’s where your imagination comes into play.

Bay

Bow

Bow

Bow windows are bay windows that are mounted on rounded frames. Like bay windows, bows extended outward to create additional space within a room. They are intended to provide a wider view of the outside, such as a garden or a panoramic back yard. While bays typically utilize three panels, bows usually require at least four to create the curved effect (although some bow designs use five or six panels, or “lites”).

Garden

Enjoy flowers and plants year-round with garden windows. These garden windows project outward and provide space for foliage, photos or décor. Perfect for over a kitchen sink or any place you’d like to add unique style. All garden windows are available in custom sizes to suit your needs. Find a pro or contact a distributor to purchase.

Garden

Specialty

Specialty

SoftLite windows are available in many specialty shapes, all custom built to fit your home’s uniquely shaped openings perfectly. Whether you need a stand-alone shape or want to use a special shape in combination with another window style, we can design a window that meets your specifications. We offer practically any shape you can imagine, from circle-tops to pentagons to octagons and much more.

We love our new windows! We purchased an older ranch home with original 1950 windows and the drafts in each room were awful! Not only is our home far more energy efficient, but looks way better from the inside and out! We also love being able to easily open the windows from the top or bottom!

We replaced thirteen original wood windows in the upstairs of our 112-year-old house. We were worried that the new vinyl windows would lack the charm and warmth of the old ones, but we were wrong. The Imperial Elite windows look fantastic. We were even able to duplicate the original pattern of the grilles in living room windows, preserving both the interior look and the curb appeal. Instead of hiring window washers with tall ladders, we can now clean the windows with ease ourselves thanks to the tilt-in feature.

We are loving our windows so far! Our 40-year-old house had all original windows, which were single-paned and in rather poor shape (some wouldn't open, the ones that would open wouldn't stay open, no screens, etc). Our air conditioner broke at the beginning of the summer and we haven't been able to get it replaced yet, but our new windows have kept the house much cooler during the day and we're able to open them at night, making the summer bearable. We love them!

Replaced our beat up casement windows (half of them didn't open/ close properly and were starting to rot and some were drafty) with double hung. It's so nice to have windows that work, look nice and keep the heat out in the summer and cold out in the winter. We didn't like having to buy new windows for a house that was less than 12 years old (we had only been there for a few years) but it was some of the best money we ever spent!

"After comparing many brands of vinyl replacement windows such as those found in big box stores, and brands like Pella ( the showroom versión not the Lowe’s product ) Softlite was a superior quality window. They had a very competitive price once installed. We are very happy with the results! it updated our 1965 ranch home home to be energy-efficient and more updated in style and function. The windows feel solid. They open and close well they don’t fall when you open them. This companies windows in the Classic Plus line have great features and a great price point. We never thought replacing windows for the entire home was possible for us till we found the Classic Plus line."

The windows look great and I can already tell how well they are working. The house is no longer drafty. I really like how easy they are to open and tilt for cleaning. My only concern is how we will install blinds as the replacement window frame leaves a very shallow space for mounting the blinds.

The windows look and operate wonderfully! We couldn't be more pleased. We were hesitant to replace our old wooden windows in a historical home but the windows we purchased fit in wonderfully! They're very well constructed and we've already noticed a noise and heat/cool transfer reduction.

After only two weeks of springtime here in the South the windows have made a dramatic difference. The afternoon sun beats down on our house with these new windows I am able to sit at my desk comfortably and the AC has not turned on. They're incredibly easy to lift and lower, my 7 year old can do it without any issues.

From my experience with SoftLite windows,I expected the sliding patio door to be wonderful, and it is. The door slides effortlessly, the screen door pull is designed to protect the screen by keeping your fingers away from it, the extra lock is easy to operate with your foot, and the structure of the door is quite airtight.

Our dealer in NC did a fantastic job representing themselves and SoftLite windows. The windows look great, and have a slightly larger glass area than other lines we considered, which was important to us. I would recommend SoftLite to anyone researching vinyl windows. Excellent value.

Your casement windows are so beautiful and energy efficient. The glass lets in tons of light. When open they let in refreshing breezes and when closed they seal out cold air and urban noise.

  • How Black Windows Offer a Modern and Versatile Upgrade
    by SoftLite Windows & Doors on July 14, 2021 at 2:01 PM

    Carpeted bathrooms, orange shag carpeting, avocado green appliances, and wallpaper borders — some trends are merely fads, but others have lasting endurance. With classic roots seen as far back as the factories and warehouses of the 19th century, black window frames have been here for a while, and they’re here to stay. Anyone scrolling through Pinterest for home design inspiration or flipping through an interior decorating magazine or catalog will likely come across the trend. Timeless yet modern, the versatility of black provides an enduring element that can go with virtually any aesthetic if you know how to incorporate it into your home.
