When a North Carolina family was looking to build a vacation home by the shore, they wanted it to last for generations to come. They knew building in coastal areas posed certain challenges: hurricane force winds, high humidity, corrosive salt air, driving rain, and more. This waterfront property needed to be able to withstand the harshest coastal conditions, while meeting the needs of the energy-conscious owners. High-performance glass was a necessity, but the home also had to have a distinct look in which simulated divided lites were used to achieve a very specific architectural style.
The perfect combination of beauty and strength, IMPACT products from Integrity allowed the builders to meet all the job requirements. They also created a finished product worthy of award-winning accolades. Integrity IMPACT windows and patio doors offer Impact Zone 3 rated performance for coastal applications. Multi-point locking systems offered additional stability and security. Energy-efficient, high-performance glass helped make this home 44% more efficient to operate. “Integrity is a durable and beautiful component of a new home. Their products are strong and yet visually pleasing. The options allow for the ability to customize the look to fit different architectural styles while being consistent in performance,” said Luke Perisich of Blue Sky Building Company. Integrity windows are built tougher, last longer, and protect better.
