To accommodate their growing family and entertainment needs,the Yens from Bethlehem, PA, added an addition to the rear of their home. To incorporate a new kitchen area, several walls separating the old kitchen from the family room were removed to dramatically open up the new space.
There were many things to consider when planning the new space:
• Removal of an exterior wall was necessary to create access to the new space. The steel beams that replaced it for support had to be installed as to not crack even one brick above the addition.
• With the addition of a new cathedral ceiling in the kitchen, the Yens wanted to complement it with a multi-window unit.
• This multi-window unit had to provide ample daylight and ventilation,while being energy efficient.
• New windows and doors will need to match the architectural style of the rest of the house.
Wood-Ultrex® windows and doors were chosen for this project for several reasons. The Architects and Contractors looked at how the family lived,and then designed around their needs. “Who has time to worry about maintaining windows? Integrity was a good fit for this project because of the low maintenance Ultrex fiberglass,” said Patrick Leonard, Product Selection Coordinator for S&D Renovations. And not only did the windows create a dramatic eye-catching focal point, the french doors provided an open view and greater access to the patio and backyard.
Integrity windows are built tougher, last longer, and protect better:
-Wood-Ultrex® pre-finished white interiors proved to be a real timesaver.
-Superior resistance to wind, rain, heat and time.
-Unmatched aesthetics, quality and durability.
-ENERGY STAR® rated products provide long term savings to homeowners.
