The owner of this 1928 Clinker Brick Tudor style cottage, located three blocks off the Atlantic Ocean, wanted to update and double the size of their dream vacation home while matching the charm that had existed on this wooded lot for over 85 years. Maintaining the architectural style and having right-sized windows and doors that would perform in a coastal environment made Integrity IMPACT (IZ3) windows a natural fit. “High on the list of the owner’s priorities was that we design an addition that matched the existing architecture and would create a seamless transition of indoor/outdoor living that fit right in with the natural landscape of the lot,” said Randy Burton of Burton Builders.
In order to match the architectural style and meet the performance requirements of a coastal environment, Integrity IMPACT (IZ3) Casement, Awning and Double Hung Windows were chosen for the project. These windows and Inswing French Doors made of Ultrex® pultruded fiberglass, not only provided a perfect fit for the traditional Tudor style home, but also met the coastal protection code standards that are required for this location. In addition, the front window at the gable required a custom tall opening double casement in order to meet egress requirements. The remodeled home also features a new two-story glass wall that overlooks the outdoor living space, providing a picturesque transition between home and nature. IMPACT windows with an IZ3 performance rating beautifully meet coastal storm requirements without unsightly reinforcements.
• Impact Zone 3 rated performance.
• 100% pultruded fiberglass construction is 8x stronger than vinyl. Tough, dependable, non-corrosive and low maintenance to outlast the competition.
• Engineered to remain airtight, watertight and secure during driving rains and heavy winds. A folding handle and multi-point sequential locking system ensures consistent and secure weather-tight performance.
• Available with corrosion-resistant coastal hardware and tempered glass and glazing.
• Integrity’s IMPACT (IZ3) is a great fit for second homes or vacation homes because they offer no additional (unsightly) fasteners. When IMPACT windows are simply locked, they are storm-ready
