Why Integrity Can Offer Beautiful, Dark Exteriors

By Berit Griffin June 11, 2014

We love this completely renovated Minneapolis house for its modest size, its simple lines — and its Integrity Wood-Ultrex windows in a Bronze exterior.

Builders and architects know what sun and heat do to vinyl windows. Shrinking and warping are common — vinyl windows have even been known to melt. That’s why you typically don’t find vinyl in dark colors — they absorb too much of the sun’s heat.

Our patented, putruded Ultrex fiberglass is as strong as steel and resists malformation in temperatures up to 350 degrees F. That’s why we can offer it in beautiful, dark colors like the Bronze you see here.
