As a pioneer in vinyl windows, Soft-Lite 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-conserving benefits and maintenance-free ease of vinyl window frames.
Soft-Lite’s vinyl windows are a better choice than wood or aluminum windows because:
The energy efficiency standards of our vinyl windows are unmatched in the industry. Many of our replacement windows are recognized as ENERGY STAR “Most Efficient Products,” and our replacement windows are Gold Label certified by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association. Our products also are certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council, which develops and administers comparative energy and related rating programs to serve the public.
As the weather grows colder, foggy windows can become a problem in some homes. This simple phenomenon happens when an object is cooler than the air around it, causing a thin layer of water molecules to form on the surface. The windows in our homes are among the most common spots where this condensation occurs because windowpanes receive direct contact with the cold air outside and are usually the coldest surfaces in the interior of a house. While this may sound harmless, the condensation that forms causes water droplets to run down windows and walls, which can result in mold and mildew.
