Windows come in a variety of operating styles, from the sophisticated to the beautifully simple, each serving to fulfill a specific architectural or operational requirement.

In order to ensure optimal insulation, caulking is used to seal the cracks, gaps and joints between the elements of a window. Caulking is a flexible material that allows for the normal movement of window parts without cracking or coming loose. However, old and damaged caulking, as well as weatherstripping, can present a number of problematic symptoms, including an increased utility bill.
