A Look Back: Winning Red Diamond Achiever AwardsBy Berit Griffin
Every year, Integrity Windows and Doors honors the best in building with the Red Diamond Achiever (RDA) Awards program. Today, we’re taking a look back at last year’s winning project: the Winnetka Residence (Winnetka, Ill.).
Designed by Geno Benvenuti of Benvenuti and Stein, the remodeling inspiration for this home was to complement Chicago’s North Shore architectural style. The house is situated along Lake Michigan, and therefore needs to stand up to the lakefront’s extreme weather conditions. Knowing that Integrity windows are built to resist the ravages of heat and cold turned out to be a big factor in the selection of Integrity’s Wood-Ultrex windows.
The windows are designed to allow for a low rate of thermal contraction and expansion, which provides a tight seal with no leaks. Plus, the windows’ size and unique divided lite patterns add character, ensuring the home fit in well within this historic neighborhood.
If you’re a builder, remodeler or architect with a great Integrity Windows and Doors project, please showcase your work with an entry in the RDA Awards program today.
