Let’s fling open the sash, shall we? If you’re new to window shopping, you may be confused by US vs. Euro-style windows. In Europe, energy costs a whole lot more, so their windows tend to be extra energy-efficient. This is accomplished in many ways, from high-performance frames and glass, to lower air infiltration and higher attention to detail. High quality hardware including multi-point locks also make them more energy efficient.
.
.
European-style windows are…
- Certified using ISO standards
- Generally more energy efficient
- Sometimes more expensive
- Growing in appeal in the US
- Now made right here in North America
.
.
American windows are…
- Certified using NFRC and other standards
- Easier to install thanks to a nailing flange/fin - some Euro windows have nail fins as well.
- Have operation options commonly found in the US
.
.
Here at AE Building, we’re partial to European-style windows that are made in the USA. Read through the blog and find out more.

We are sharing the excitement with this client who's windows were just installed on their renovation. It's great hearing they instantly notice a difference with their new Alpen Tyrol 625 windows, specifically commenting on how much cooler the house has been this summer. We look forward to hearing what they say this winter.

Are your home projects glaring at you more than ever? Todd's kitchen remodel pretty much has been completed, and his whole family appreciates the space. It's amazing how being home more, the honey-do lists seem to be stacking up. Is this the same for you?

In this month's blog post, we highlight the many advantages of mineral wool. Check out this trifecta! This home located near Leadville, CO, is triple layering Comfortboard 80 to create a new level of coziness against Colorado high mountain winters.

Any of your projects using triple layering? Read about why we think this stuff is so amazing over on our blog.
