Located in the mountain cove community of Montreat, North Carolina, the home sits on a National Wildlife Federation Certified Habitat. “Integrity Wood-Ultrex® windows and French doors were the best fit for the project because we were able to accomplish everything our client wanted without compromising any of their key goals,” stated Rachel Britton of Deltec Homes. The homeowner wanted a large number of windows to capture the brilliant views of the terrain and flood their home with natural light. The challenge was to accomplish these goals with a “green” window that would minimize heat gain and heat loss to achieve a North Carolina Healthy Built Home* designation.
This home was the first house in the city to be built under the North Carolina Healthy Built Home program. By using Integrity Wood-Ultrex Casement and Awning Windows and both Sliding and Swinging French Doors the home was able to maximize their views without losing energy efficiency. Even with the large expanses of glass, the home passed the strict standards and energy codes required by the North Carolina Healthy Built Home program. Nestled in the trees with a running stream below, the home beautifully captures exactly what the owner wanted to accomplish. Integrity Wood-Ultrex windows are built tougher, last longer and protect better.
